Wood Siding Installation and Repair in Greater Washington

Solid wood remains a favorite cladding solution for many traditional homes in Northern Virginia and Southern Maryland. Wood siding on a home exudes warmth, beauty and charm, compliments many architectural styles and can create a wide variety of looks.

Additionally, the large selection of wood species, in combination with a multitude of siding patterns, offers homeowners practically an endless array of style and design options to achieve a look and character unique to each home.

Popular types of wood siding
  • White, Red or Jack Pine
  • Western Red Cedar
  • Douglas Fir
  • Redwood
  • Cypress
Popular and classic siding patterns
  • Cove Lap (also Dutch or German Lap) Siding is one of the oldest siding styles around. It is similar in appearance to traditional siding but for a decorative groove in the top of the board.
  • Bevel Siding is common with Western Red Cedar, and it is perhaps the most widely-used siding style. It is beautiful in appearance, and straightforward in function.
  • Channel Rustic Lap Siding is designed to look like traditional wood siding, but without the splits and cracks.

Wood siding durability and maintenance

Wood siding requires more maintenance than vinyl siding and fiber cement siding. Wood must be treated, and painted or stained every 5-10 years, depending on wear. If wood siding is not properly maintained, it becomes susceptible to rot, decay, swelling, insect infestation, mold and mildew and fire. However, with normal maintenance and care, wood siding is durable, resistant to the elements and may easily outlast vinyl siding.

Exterior Medics recently accomplished a face lift of our front porch and carport. We had three windows replaced and removed shutters and replaced vinyl siding with James Hardie board and batten panels. We also installed vinyl soffit coverage to entire carport and porch ceilings. Finally, we blocked out our 7 existing wooden columns around porch and carport with PVC. Everything was painted and it looks fantastic! We were pleased with Ben, our sales representative who guided us through our concept to get to our vision of the project locked in. Eric Holmes, the project manager provided excellent communication through the scheduling and during the actual construction phase by discussing each detail of the renovation to assure he and the crew were clear on our expectations of what the finished product should look like. He visited with us and the crew on site on the morning before the work got started and was there to rectify a problem with the supplies that were delivered. And called on the second day to check on the progress and after completion to check on our satisfaction. The 3 man crew led by “Chapes” was phenomenal. They were very skilled and made suggestions as the work progressed to make the final outcome even better than we hoped. I appreciated their experience and expertise very much.

When I decided to replace my crummy vinyl siding, I was referred to Exterior Medics by a trusted contractor who said "they won't be the cheapest, but they'll do the best work and it'll last a lifetime." Exterior Medics quickly scheduled a consultation with Ron, who walked me through a range of options, products, and price points. He was extremely knowledgeable and made time for multiple follow-ups that accommodated my busy schedule and my first-time homeowner's need to understand every last detail. We designed a project I love, and he was able to make it work with my budget. His wasn't the lowest quote I received, but Ron gave me confidence that the quality of the work and the professionalism of the company were worth it.

I am employed with an HOA Management company, and we work very closely with Exterior Medics for a number of our communities' needs. Melanie has excellent customer service skills, she is very professional, and always quick to respond to emails or phone calls. I would definitely recommend this company if you care about quality service and workmanship!

Replaced old vinyl with new. Wrapped all windows with vinyl trim. Did an outstanding job. I would recommend them for any job they have listed. Completely cleaned up after the work was done.
