The CRS Difference

We can sum up the CRS difference in three keywords: vision, knowledge and dedication. The best siding projects are the product of creative vision carried out with technical precision. We work with three of the leaders in the siding industry: CertainTeed, James Hardie and Alside.

The pros at CRS have a thorough knowledge of modern home siding options. CertainTeed’s vinyl siding is #1-rated by building professionals. The company offers the largest color palette in the industry. James Hardie invented fiber cement siding. Today, the company is the world leader in this type of siding protection for your home. Alside’s vinyl, steel and specialty siding deliver value, good looks and durability.

Siding Design

New siding dramatically increases both the curb appeal and the value of your home. Carefully match siding color and style with your home’s architectural elements. Let us put our years of experience to work to help you select the ideal siding option.

We will review the home siding types appropriate for your home. There are many designs, including clapboard, shakes, board-and-batten, and Dutch lap. Select from standard colors or blended specialty colors.

Select the siding with a wind rating that’s right for your situation. Siding with conforming insulation is an option that may reduce your energy costs. We’ll also help you understand how different gauges, panel lengths and exposures impact a siding project.

Design assistance is also available from leading siding manufacturers. They frequently include design tools on their websites. For example, CertainTeed devotes an entire section to inspiring design ideas.

Siding Trim Options

Homeowners choosing new siding have many trim options. Select harmonious trim boards for doors, windows, fascia and rakes. There’s also trim with a corner post. There are different trim materials to consider, like aluminum trim coil and composite. There are composite cross heads and custom composite design trims. Match the right trim with your selected siding. For example, James Hardie siding is a fiber cement product that should only be used with fiber cement or PVC trim.

Many homeowners make their homes’ exteriors even more distinctive with the addition of shutters. You’ll also find that there are many colors and styles of soffits. Find a look that blends with the rest of your home’s exterior. Ventilating soffits improve airflow through your attic, reducing cooling loads in warm weather.

Once you put it all together, your home’s exterior is transformed. Imagine the feeling when you see your home renewed and refreshed with new siding. Consider the pride you’ll feel when guests arrive for a backyard BBQ, birthday celebration or cocktail party.

The CRS Process For Siding

CRS has an organized, step-by-step process for siding replacement. First, there’s the initial evaluation, followed by siding removal where appropriate. Finally, there’s the professional installation of the new siding. The installation also includes housewrap, insulation board, new soffits and other accessories as needed.

Initial Evaluation

Is it best to go over the old siding or to remove it first? You’ll want expert advice before you proceed. There are certain instances when going over the old siding might make more sense either financially or aesthetically.

Siding Removal

Most of the time, the old siding will be torn off down to the sheathing. Removal of the existing siding allows for a full inspection of all exterior wall materials. It is important to ensure that the house has a waterproof or drainable housewrap like HardieWrap. Sheathing must be replaced where necessary. Finally, improve the R-value of your home with insulation board. HardiePlank Lap Siding with Insulation is one example.

Siding Installation

Siding is all done from scaffolds, so it’s important to hire an experienced, licensed and insured contractor for safety. CRS’ experienced installers know how to install everything to spec. Proper installation of starter strips, wall flashing and drip caps deliver longevity and water-resistance. The right PVC-reinforced grabber edges, double nailing hems, siding panel projections and panel interlocking systems are also important. There are also J channels installed with the frame-out for doors windows, electrical boxes and other protrusions. Gutters and leaders are usually installed along with the siding.

Given all this detail, home siding jobs typically take a little longer than CRS roof replacements. While new roofs take a day or two, siding removal and replacement take about a week.
