Install The Siding Material Best for Your Home

We know that siding is one of the first things people notice when they come to visit your home. We offer the following types of siding so your home gets a boost in curb appeal following your project.

Engineered Wood Siding

If you love the look of wood siding but don’t want to deal with the issues that often plague that material, consider choosing engineered wood siding for your exterior. Engineered wood siding has a wood grain texture that gives it a look very similar to wood siding. 


However, the wood fibers in this material are bound together with a resin composite material, making it a much more durable siding option that can withstand our Iowa weather extremes. We install LP Smart Siding in two options: Diamond Kote and Expert Finish. In fact, we’re one of only 3 contractors in the state that are certified to use Expert Finish, so you can have peace of mind that we’re the best contractor for the job.

Vinyl Siding

Are you concerned about your budget as you plan your siding replacement project? Vinyl siding could be the perfect material for you. As a cost-effective option, vinyl siding is one of the most popular siding materials with local homeowners. 


Not only is it a budget-friendly material, but it’s also available in a wide variety of color options that are baked into the siding. That means your siding color won’t scratch or chip off over time. 


Beyond that, vinyl siding requires very little maintenance so it will continue to look great without much extra effort from you. We proudly install vinyl siding from Royal Building Products, one of the industry-leading manufacturers on the market.

Fiber Cement Siding

Fiber cement siding is another material that’s popular with local homeowners. Touted as one of the most durable siding options on the market, fiber cement siding is specifically designed to withstand harsh wind, rain, hail, ice, and more. 


Here at Seamless Exterior, we install James Hardie fiber cement siding, which is one of the most popular siding manufacturers in the country. James Hardie siding comes in a wide variety of colors, styles, and textures, so there’s truly something for every homeowner. 


While fiber cement siding has a bit of a higher upfront cost, many homeowners feel it's worth it for the durability and performance you can expect.

Available in countless design options, you can choose from traditional lap steel siding, vertical, shake, dutchlap, or a combination of them to create a truly beautiful and unique exterior for your home. 


We are proud to install EDCO steel siding which is virtually maintenance-free. Perhaps best of all, EDCO steel siding is backed with a lifetime, non-prorated limited warranty with hail and fade protection so you can feel good about your investment.
