SIDING | ACCESSORIES
 

Whether you're building your dream home or renovating one you’ve loved for years, there’s one solution for your homes exterior that will make it beautiful, durable and carefree-siding,  in vinyl, wood, fiber cement or metal. Gone are the days of limited choices in siding. Today's market offers a wide variety of colors and textures. 

The differentiation extends to trim products as well. With more choices in the marketplace and the option to mix and match siding and accessories, you can create an exterior for your home that lets your personality shine through while adding “curb appeal” to your property.

Siding is on display at all MAKI Building Centers locations.

VINYL SIDING

Vinyl siding is the preferred siding of homeowners and contractors alike.  You want to choose a gauge of siding which means the strength of the siding. Most siding is offered from 0.40 to 0.48 inches. You also have to consider the grain of the siding. Vinyl siding has different grains, there are smooth grains and raised grains. Vinyl siding is also available in a wide assortment of colors with matching and complementing accessories which help retain architectural details that add to the character of the home.

The great thing about vinyl, is that when installed properly, it will hold up against any kind of weather. 

Vinyl siding is not susceptible to rot, weather damage or insect damage. Vinyl shutters, vinyl columns and rain gutter are also available.

Siding is on display at all MAKI Building Centers locations.

WOOD SIDING  

There are homes that are sided with wood. Wood is very solid and comes in many different types like Oak, Cherrywood, Maple or Pine just to name a few. Wood is very popular because people like the classic clean look of it. Wood siding offers a variety of appearances such as vertical siding, horizontal siding, clapboards, shakes and shingles.

Now, as beautiful as wood is, there is a major drawback to having it side your home, and that is the fact that wood rots. If you are planning to keep a wood home, then you must make sure that the wood is treated properly and sealed properly. Because any rot that occurs over time, will eventually rot away completely and it will have to be replaced.

Siding is on display at all MAKI Building Centers locations.

FIBER CEMENT  

If you want the look of wood but don’t want the hassles and costs associated with it, fiber-cement siding may be a satisfactory alternative. This product is available in a variety of textures that provide the appearance of wood. Fiber-cement siding is more durable than wood - it is termite-resistant, water-resistant and non-combustible.

Fiber-cement siding is composed of cement, sand, and cellulose fiber that has been autoclaved (cured with pressurized steam) to increase its strength and dimensional stability.

The fiber is added as reinforcement to prevent cracking. The material is not “maintenance free” as it does require painting. However, because fiber cement does not expand and contract with the weather, paint adheres to it very well lasting longer than it would on wood siding.

FIBER CEMENT  

Durability and long lasting beauty make metal siding a superior choice for residential applications. You'll appreciate the value metal siding offers as the years accumulate with practically no maintenance or replacement costs.

Whether you want a sleek contemporary look, a classic traditional look or a rustic look for your country home or log cabin, MAKI's has the style and color you’re looking for.

Metal siding will withstand inclement weather, high winds, hail, snow and rain better than other sidings. Metal siding does not rot, warp, split or crack and is impervious to termites and pests.

Metal siding reflects and absorbs heat more efficiently than other sidings.

Many consumers are concerned when they see oriented strand board (OSB) being installed,  because it costs less and looks different than plywood, they feel like they are getting a lower quality product. You need not worry. Today's OSB has a comparable quality to plywood and is the better choice for some home projects.

ENGINEERED LUMBER
 

Engineered lumber does everything solid-sawn lumber does, except better! It's stronger, lighter, straighter and more stable. Engineered wood is made from quick growing, abundant species such as aspen, fir, pine and poplar that are processed into wood veneers or strands, coated with adhesive, compressed into large billets, dried, then sawn into standard lumber dimensions. Laminated veneer lumber (LVL), laminated strand lumber (LSL) & parallel strand lumber (PSL), are some of the types of engineered wood products.

Because engineered wood products are superior in strength, stability, and uniformity to standard lumber species of the U. S., headers and girders can be engineered for greater clear spans or to carry greater loads. Check with the MAKI Corp. Engineering Department if you have any questions on using engineered lumber products in place of the traditional dimensional lumber. You'll be glad you did!

INSULATION
 

Performance advances mean energy savings!

Insulation products are a staple in new home or remodeling projects. At MAKI's we recognize the value of energy efficiency and the need to control energy costs. Last winter's fuel bills, this summer's gasoline prices and heightened awareness of global warming have made energy efficiency everyone's job. Adding insulation not only saves money, it also impacts the long-term effects on energy and the environment that it can produce.

Insulation also plays a role in in home acoustics, reducing room-to-room noise. Insulation aids acoustics in two ways, by plugging air leaks that cause noise to travel from room to room, and by providing more mass in the wall to prevent reverberation. 

A variety of energy saving insulation products are in stock at all MAKI Building Centers.
