We have partnered with Alside to bring our customers durable, low-maintenance, and beautiful siding options. Since Alside introduced the first low-maintenance residential siding in 1947, they’ve been raising the bar on appearance and performance.

When you request a consultation for siding, Milanese Remodeling will also inspect your complete exterior to determine whether roof replacement, window and door replacement, or removal and reinstallation of existing windows and doors should be part of the siding project.

Alside Style GuideSiding Types & Styles

Siding for the exterior walls of your property can be manufactured of vinyl, wood, fiber cement, aluminum, and steel. Masonry, such as natural stone veneers, cultured stone, and brick face, can be added to the exterior walls during a siding installation. The materials you select will impact future maintenance and appearance of your property.

You will choose from historically correct Clapboard & Dutch-lap styles, Colonial Beaded, Craftsman Cedar Shake, Victorian Scalloped or Rustic Board & Batten styles. You may decide to mix and match styles to create the one-of-a-kind look you are dreaming of.

Siding Colors

When choosing a new siding color, it’s a good idea to first look at the color of your roof shingles. For the best appearance, shingles and siding should complement each other. You will also want to decide if you want a little or a lot of contrast between siding and trim.

Siding Insulation

Most homeowners choose to have siding installed to improve the appearance of their home. But, it also presents an opportunity to update the home’s insulation, so there’s never an easier and more affordable time to update insulation than when you are having siding installed.

Fullback®V insulation from Progressive Foam:

  • Helps to save energy, reduce utility bills, and create a more comfortable home all year long.
  • Protects against wood rot, mold and mildew.
  • Has a built-in pest control agent that deters against pest infestation.
  • Increases durability of siding and ensures the beautiful appearance lasts for decades.
  • Helps level the wall behind the siding, making the siding appear even straighter.

Exterior Accessories

Choose from functional accessories, like window and door lineals, corners, and gable vents, as well as decorative accessories, like shutters, mantles, and dentil molding.

Doing the Job Right: The Process & Remediation

The Milanese Remodeling team has the experience and knowledge to properly replace wall coverings according to:

  • Local, state, and national building codes
  • American Architect & Manufacturers Association (AAMA) guidelines and specifications
  • Vinyl Siding Installation Association (VSIA) guidelines and specifications

Unfortunately, many homeowners in the area are learning about the expenses related to mold and mildew remediation, which is a direct result of improper siding installation. Milanese Remodeling takes the time to properly remove and dispose of existing wall coverings, make authorized repairs if needed, and then install Dupont Tyvek Homewrap to allow the home to breath. This also helps to stop water penetration and air infiltration from outside in.

Siding installation is the most overlooked detail when it comes to replacing siding, even though it may be the single most important factor determining customer satisfaction. In order for new siding to remain beautiful, defend against water penetration and air infiltration, insulate against heat loss and withstand high winds and heavy rain over the long term, the siding must be installed correctly.
