An Oft-Overlooked Home Element: Siding

Imbue Character into Your Home

 

One of the most present elements of any home are the materials that make up the exterior of that home. The siding, in particular, is a large component of the exterior, and can add to the overall beauty of the home. In that sense, poorly made siding can take away from the home, and similarly siding that doesn’t mesh well with the other building materials can be detrimental on an aesthetic level. For this reason, choosing quality siding is always the best option, be it for a home yet to be built or to renovate a home already in existence.

 

The siding of a home is almost an accent, and can be seen as an afterthought to those not in this industry. But contrary to that misconception, siding goes a long way to the overall feeling of a home. From shakes to shingles, stone & brick to shapes, siding is a fun design element that many first-time homeowners will regrettably overlook. If you select the right siding option for your home, you can successfully imbue it with just the right character, encapsulating your personal character or blending in with the other homes in your neighborhood.

Great Deck Supplies for your Wisconsin Home

Although the great outdoors may not be enjoyed quite as often here in Wisconsin compared to other states and regions of the country, there are still some great mornings and evenings to be appreciated here. Perhaps the best way to begin or end your day is on a quality front or back deck. A deck affords you extra space, and gives you the pleasure of enjoying the outdoors when the weather permits. The right decking equipment will last a long time too, allowing you to utilize for years and years to come.

Here at United Building Supply Inc., we specialize in some of the best deck supplies around. Both Genovations and Azek supply durable, great looking decks that truly make an indelible impression. Azek’s composite decks are perfect for the harsh Wisconsin winters, capable of withstanding food and drink stains as well as surviving the harsh weather elements.

Morning or Evening Enjoyment Just Beyond Your Door

A deck represents an escape of sorts – a transition from the working world to the relaxing life of your home. The right deck can serve as your morning coffee spot, effectively giving you the chance to get in the right mindset before a busy day. In a similar way a deck can be used as a great unwinding tool, giving you the chance to recharge and reflect at the end of a long day.

No matter how you choose to use your deck, make sure you consult the professionals at United Building Supply Inc. to ensure you get a price and a great quality deck. We have the necessary materials and can help you transform the outside of your home into a veritable oasis of joy and relaxation.

El Niño Is Coming to Wisconsin: Get Your Clients’ Exterior Siding, Insulation Fixed Now!

winter

Cold Weather Ahead

With all the changing climate patterns, it’s difficult to know what exactly will happen during the winter of 2015-2016, but all experts agree: it’s going to be a doozy. What this means for Wisconsin? All signs from the National Weather Service’s Climate Prediction Center (www.cpc.noaa.gov) point to a classic eastern Pacific model for our region, based on the El Niño weather patterns from previous seasons and their results.

What to Expect

This means cooler weather for September through November throughout the Great Lakes area is probable. The more interesting prognostication concerns warmer temperatures for December through February, with variable precipitation. The summer to follow will also likely have unusual temperatures and rain levels, as is typical after this kind of weather pattern.

Even if you’re not a fan of newfangled climate experts-go with the Old Farmer’s Almanac, which is also predicting a cold and snowy winter. While Wisconsin is used to rough winters, this may be one for the record books.

Building Materials for your Home

So what’s the bottom line? Now is the time to replace damaged exterior siding, insulation, old decking, and even soffit, fascia and trim. We carry a full range of products to suit a variety of tastes and preferences. We also make it a point to stock only the brands people trust, proven to endure. With more than two decades serving the Sheboygan, Washington and Ozaukee counties, we know our industry and we know our customers.

The winds, snows and rain this season promise to batter even the most well-made house, so don’t take a chance on anything less than the best. With United Building Supply Inc., you know you’re getting the finest quality every time, on everything we sell. Count on it, no matter the weather.

An Oft-Overlooked Element of your Home

Compared to the more high-profile building elements of a home: windows, doors, and even roof – the siding is relatively unknown to the average homeowner. At most, homeowners typically only care about the color of the home, and how that relates to the rest of the house as a whole. But good siding can make a huge difference in the lifespan of your home. The folks at Heartland understand that better than anyone, which is evident in their development of anti-weathering material that includes SPX-2000 UV blocker to protect your siding from the elements. In fact, Heartland is so confident in the lasting color of their quality siding that they offer a color-keeper™ anti-fade protection guarantee! At the end of the day, Heartland sets themselves apart from the competition with elite materials. Their siding is engineered with tri-pigment reflective technology that allows scratches to virtually disappear and reflect damaging infrared solar rays.

Our Commitment to Excellence

At United Building Supply, Inc., we place special emphasis on using only the best materials for our projects. Our team routinely utilizes the finest siding, windows, doors, and decks to ensure our customers’ homes are the best they can be.
