Residential Siding on the East-End of Long Island in the Hamptons
Give your Long Island home new life with modern siding
From a functional point of view, siding gives your home protection. From an architectural stance, it can be used to highlight your home’s special features, including the entryway.
Siding is a great way to add color and definition to a house and today there are lots of options you can choose from for creating a perfect façade. In addition to good looks, you’ll also want to consider durability, resistance to the elements, and versatility.
FD Building Co. offers a wide range of siding to suit your personal style and budget. From vinyl to cement, we have your home covered!
The Right Siding Adds Valuable Curb Appeal
It’s one of the first things people notice when they pull up to your home, so it’s important to make the right siding choice and ensure it’s properly installed by a qualified contractor.
The Hamptons has a distinct aesthetic. From Southampton to East Hampton and Long Island’s East End, each town has its own unique character and homes there range from Greek revival to cottage, barn style, and modern Scandinavian influenced architecture.
As one of Suffolk County’s premier siding contractors, we use only the finest materials, all of which can be custom ordered to meet your exact specifications.
Expertly Installed Siding
Properly installed siding easily weathers the elements, enabling you to enjoy your home worry-free for years. Our siding installation process includes all the latest industry advances, including moisture protection systems. From vinyl siding to cedar shakes and brick veneers, we have a wealth of experience in working with a wide range of materials.
Our preferred brands include CertainTeed and Boral for vinyl and poly vinyl options and Hardie for pre-painted fiber cement siding.
FD Building Co. can improve your home’s exterior with newly installed siding materials that are as easy to maintain as they are beautiful to look at. There are six types of siding that are popular with Long Island homeowners.
The most popular siding choice in the entire country, its low cost, easy maintenance, and versatility, along with the wide variety of available colors and styles makes it an attractive choice for all style homes and budgets. There have been many innovations in vinyl siding over the last five years. CertainTeed’s polymer and vinyl siding lines, including their Cedar Impressions Siding, is eco-friendly, containing a minimum of 60% post-consumer and post-industrial recycled materials.
Fiber Cement Siding
Reasonably priced, durable, and fire-resistant, fiber cement siding offers the look of masonry, wood, or stucco, at a lower price than the original materials. Depending on the manufacturer, it lasts 25 to 50 years, is termite-resistant, and comes in a range of textures and styles, including the popular pre-painted option. Hardie’s selection of lap, vertical, shingle, and artisan sidings let you create a classic design aesthetic that reflects the Hamptons architectural heritage. To avoid moisture issues, it’s important to have fiber cement siding installed by an experienced contractor.
Popular for cottages, Cape Cods, and bungalows, as well as your neighbor’s mansion, wood offers a classic look. It’s extremely durable when properly maintained but does require more maintenance than some other materials. And paint or stain must be periodically applied to prevent weather damage. Wood siding is also susceptible to rodent, insect, and termite attacks. Available in clapboard (also known as bevel or lap), shakes, and shingles, your best bet for durability and longevity are products made from Western red cedar and redwood. For visual interest, shingles can be cut into various shapes and some are pre-treated with fire-retardant chemicals.
While stucco is sometimes used on stone or brick surfaces, it’s most commonly seen on ranch and Mediterranean style homes. Stucco, a very rigid product, is composed of building sand, Portland cement, lime, and water. It must be carefully applied to avoid cracking. Installed by an expert, it can last the lifetime of your home.
Most often used on Tudor, Colonial, and English cottage style homes, brick provides a beautiful and timeless look. Today it is usually applied as a veneer with mortar used to hold the bricks together. Genuine brick comes in different textures and sizes and when installed correctly can last as long your house is standing. Because installation is labor-intensive, brick siding tends to be more expensive than other siding options.
Stone and Stone Veneer Siding
There’s nothing like the natural beauty of stone for adding texture and visual interest to a home’s exterior. Popular choices include granite and limestone, but it is a more expensive siding option that should be carefully weighed into your budget. A less expensive and more lightweight option is stone veneer siding which is available in both natural and synthetic materials.
