Utah might have been described as a rose blossoming in the desert but in terms of its weather, it has never been compared to anything so demure. The Beehive State’s sometimes tumultuous weather has been known to bring rain in the morning, snow in the afternoon, and have it all melted and dried with scorching temperatures just a few hours later.
Naturally, this type of weather poses an interesting set of challenges for homeowners who want to make sure their houses remain sturdy while preserving their inherent curb appeal. Burbach Exteriors, happily, is in the business of curb appeal and can spearhead the most functional and aesthetically pleasing home renovations to fit Utah’s unpredictable climate.
SIDING WITH QUALITY
Of course, it’s not just the weather that demands that homes be ready for anything; Utah is experiencing a historic boom in housing and commerce, meaning that neighborhoods are being built and updated year-round. A home repair job isn’t just about functionality anymore — keeping up with the Joneses and making things better than they originally were will ultimately improve the value of the home.
Bearing that in mind, the siding experts at Burbach are equipped to help you make the best decision for your home in the long run. In an effort to make a home for all seasons, there are a few materials that we stand behind completely.
Thanks to the diversity of architectural styles that are spotted throughout the state, from Pioneer to Adobe to Modern, you have your pick of great siding options that would look good anywhere. Here are a few of our favorites:
James Hardie Siding
For many looking for the best siding options in Utah, James Hardie is the gold standard. Many home renovation projects have included a switch to this versatile option, that can accommodate numerous colors and contours. Benefits of using Hardie products include:
- Fire Resistance: Around 90% of this material is a composite of sand and cement, two things fire doesn’t like. That gives your home an edge of protection against any oncoming infernos.
- Longevity: It guards against insects, mineral deposits, and rot, and is rated to last over half a century.
- Storm Protection: Thanks to their blended material composition, these Hardie boards can literally take a beating, whether it’s heavy rain or flying debris.
If you’re in a particularly arid part of the state that gets few rain showers, like in Southern Utah, then Stucco is a great option for a home. Not only can it be customized to any style, but it can be repaired quickly and relatively inexpensively. Other benefits include:
- Temperature Regulation: It remains cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
- Strength: It is applied in many layers over the frame of the house, making it extremely durable and strong.
There are so few materials that will look good now and in 100 years. Bricks have been the foundation of our building tradition as far back as when man first started firing clay to make walls for his hut. A home renovation that uses bricks wisely leaves each house suited for some of the best curb appeal in the neighborhood. The perks of veneer include:
- Authenticity: This is not a sticker placed on the wall to give the appearance of brick, but rather the actual clay blocks themselves.
- Timelessness: Bricks will continue to be relevant well into the future and the team at Burbach can ensure that it looks beautiful from day one.
