We all know the weather in Montana can be brutal on siding and trim. From the considerable amounts of snow in the winter to the extreme temperature variances during the different season, choosing the right siding for your project is very important. Siding is the cladding that sheds the elements down and away from your home or multi-family project and is probably the largest contributor to the project’s curb appeal. Builders FirstSource has the inventory, the most popular siding brands, and the expertise to ensure you get the best products for your job.
Whether you are specifying the siding products for your new construction project in Great Falls or repairing and replacing existing materials in Butte, we will help you consider all the key factors with convenient locations all over the state of Montana.
Durability is a key factor in maintenance and cost.
Appearance is also an important consideration when choosing your siding. The color, texture, and style of siding you choose should enrich the look, not just protect it from weather.
Cost is always a consideration; our staff can help you accurately estimate the quantities and provide a competitively priced quote.
Maintenance is also important in siding selection. You will want to take into account the warranty, painting, cleaning, and maintenance required.
Installation of sidings varies from quick and easy to challenging and time-intensive. The installation can greatly affect the cost of the project and the timeline.
Fiber cement by James Hardie® is one of the most popular horizontal lap sidings for all conditions in Montana and is available in standard primed grey or in several pre-painted colors through their patented ColorPlus® technology. Fiber cement looks nice and is extremely durable. It is termite resistant, non-combustible, and carries up to a 30-year warranty, depending on the product. This product is heavy and brittle, which can make installation a little more difficult.
The majority of modern siding and trim popular in Montana strive to imitate the appearance of wood. Engineered wood siding such as Smartside® from LP Building Products® has the authentic wood grain appearance, is lightweight, easy to work with, and comes with a 50-year warranty.
A large selection of cedar and specialty sidings is also available. Contact one of our representatives to discuss your project today.
