  • Wood and Engineered Wood For some homeowners, the natural beauty of wood makes it their first choice. Or, if building an addition or garage for an existing wood-clad house, natural wood may also be desired even though it is one of the most expensive exterior cladding products to install and maintain. HIP installs wood siding, but also offers some alternative products which resemble natural wood and require less maintenance and are more affordable.

    Fiber Cement has become one of the most popular siding alternatives to real wood. It requires less maintenance and is less expensive and comes either primed or pre-painted.
    LP SmartSide® siding and trim has the authentic look of real wood and is in fact manufactured from wood strands and fiber. Its’ manufacturing process provides multiple advantages over real wood siding and trim such as resistance to cupping and warping, termites and fungal decay. Factory priming adds another level of protection against moisture. LP SmartSide® is available pre-painted in a variety of colors warrantied for either 15 or 25 years.

    Steel Siding When steel is the siding of choice, HIP proudly installs EMCO [link] steel siding. EMCO steel siding is highly durable and is specially coated to resist chipping, blistering and fading. It also comes in a wide variety of colors and styles.

Windows and Doors – Home Improvement Partners installs both traditional wood-clad windows & doors and maintenance free windows & doors manufactured with vinyl or other composite materials. We install windows & doors which are custom manufactured to precisely fit every installation. Our carpenters can also alter an existing opening or create a new opening to add extra light or remodel your room as desired. We also provide interior finishing if needed and can complete the exterior with new trim (brick-mold) or cladding.
