Siding improves your home's curb appeal and protects it from harsh weather
Beyond looks and increased value, new siding protects your home’s structure from the weather. Neglecting your homes siding may result in insect infestations, moisture, mold, and mildew growth – all of which can have severe ramifications on your home’s underlying structure.
The Almar team is a pleasure to work with. From answering our calls, to putting together a construction plan to doing the work they were professional, innovative and reliable. Their work is amazing, their prices are fair and they get the job done. We have now used them several times for a new deck, a sunroom addition and several other smaller projects and are looking forward to using them again. We trust them and recommend them to all our friends and neighbors!

House wrap is a lightweight, synthetic material placed underneath your siding. If you have an older home, you might have asphalt-coated felt paper (the original form of house wrap.) Today, it's common to see products like Tyvek, Typar, or Blueskin.
House wrap is essential because it's your home's protective layer between your siding and the wooden framing. Because some siding is not waterproof, house wrap is a home’s last line of defense against air leaks, water infiltration, and leaks. This thin resilient, weather-resistant barrier prevents rain from getting into the framing while allowing water vapor to pass to the exterior.

From shutters to dentil moldings around windows. You can incorporate many different options into your siding designs to customize your house to showcase your unique tastes. Choices you could make include aluminum trim (in various colors) or PVC trim. You can even request custom designs on your PVC trim. Decorative brackets, corbels, and dentil blocks can add a unique (or historic) look to any home.
Have a question we didn’t answer here?
I've had two jobs completed by Almar, and both were done at a very high quality. The first was a makeover of the bathroom upstairs which had previously been a DIY tile project by the previous owner, which did not go well. The second job was the repair and restoration of a significant leak that we had in our porch into our basement. I would hire them again; they are wonderful to do business with.
