Mastic Siding – Product Feature of the Week

In this post, I’ll be discussing the many options you have as a homeowner looking to install vinyl siding onto your home’s exterior. At Executive Exteriors and Remodeling, one of our favorite vinyl siding suppliers is Mastic Home Exteriors. With Mastic, there are four options to choose from: Ovation, Carvedwood-44, Quest, and Structure EPS Insulated

Let’s dive a little deeper into what these different options can do for you.

Ovation

The basic in Mastic’s line, Ovation provides a simple solution to siding your home at an affordable price. Ovation comes in 20 different colors and five different panel styles. Within the Ovation line, you can choose from the following styles:

Double 5″
Triple 3″
Double 4″
Double 4.5″ Dutch Lap
Rated for winds up to 195mph
Snap+Lock+Hold system keeps panels in place
Have a 9/16″ Panel Projection that simulates wood siding
Single 6.5″ Traditional Beaded Advanced Locking System
Wind Speeds rated up to 165mph

Carvedwood-44

The next one on our list is Carvedwood-44. This line from Mastic serves as Ovation’s big brother. While Ovation is well above industry standard at .042 thickness, Carvedwood-44 is just a little bigger. As you might have guessed, its thickness is .044 to add just that much more durability. This series comes with everything in the Ovation line, plus:

Duranyl 5000 Protection System Extra UV protection (resists fading and weathering)
Hang-Tough Technology Increases durability (resists cracking and impact damage)
T-2 Lok Locking system with more contact area to ensure hold

Quest

Next up is Mastic’s Quest line of siding. This line is yet one step up from the Carvedwood-44 series. With an even larger panel projection and thicker construction, this line is sure to stand the test of mother nature. But what is most exciting about this line is its extra-long lengths. While a standard piece of vinyl siding runs from 12 to 12.5ft in length, these panels have 16’8” and 25’6” lengths. That means less seams, less leaks, and more durability. Here’s a breakdown of Quest’s benefits:

Duranyl 5000 Protection System Extra UV protection (resists fading and weathering)
Hang-Tough Technology Increases durability (resists cracking and impact damage)
T-3 Lok Locking system with even more contact area to ensure best possible hold
Wind Speed Rated up to 240mph Top of the line wind resistance
Extra-Long Lengths Available More Durability, Less Seams

Structure EPS Insulated Siding

The Structure EPS Insulated Siding line is the top dog of Mastics vinyl siding offerings. It has almost all of the impressive features of its aforementioned peers plus one very important addition: insulated backing. Not only does this insulated back help provide strength and durability to your home’s exterior, but it will also help strengthen your wallet. With insulated siding you are getting a 5 to 6 times larger R-value than wood siding and an R-value up to 20x larger than 5/16” Fiber Cement. The benefits below do all of the talking.

Insulation Behind Vinyl Shell Provides extra insulation and impact resistance for home’s exterior
Duranyl 5000 Protection System Extra UV protection (resists fading and weathering)
Hang-Tough Technology Increases durability (resists cracking and impact damage)
T-3 Lok Locking system with even more contact area to ensure best possible hold
Wind Speed Rated up to 240mph Top of the line wind resistance
Long Lengths Available Up to 16’8” More Durability, Less Seams

Your Siding Options: LP SmartSide Siding

We are always getting asked, “What are my options for upgrading my siding from vinyl to another, more durable material?” Most of our customers have heard about James Hardie fiber cement siding, but they don’t know much more than the namePreffered-Remodeler-Minneapolis. James Hardie is the leader in fiber cement siding, but here at Executive Exteriors and Remodeling, we always refer LP SmartSide. LP SmartSide is the latest and greatest form of composite siding that is lasting longer and looking even better than James Hardie fiber cement siding. Contractors nationwide are making the transition to this new, innovative product.

This product comes in every form of siding needed to cover the exterior walls of your home (lap, panel, trim, fascia, and soffit). What’s more? It protects the exterior of your home like nothing else on the market. The secret is in LP’s proprietary SmartGuard process used to make their SmartSide product. This process uses zinc borate in the manufacturing of LP’s siding that naturally resists termites and fungal decay.LP-SmartSide-Minneapolis

Are you having a hard time believing it? No problem. Let the numbers do the talking. LP offers a 5/50 limited warranty on this product guaranteeing its durability. That means there is a 5-year 100% labor and replacement aspect and a 50-year prorated warranty. This way, no matter what you believe, you can give it a try for yourself, worry free.

Why is LP so confident you ask? They’ve done their homework. In 1996, LP took their siding all the way out to Hilo, Hawaii where the siding could receive the most brutal testing. Hilo, Hawaii averages 70 degrees Fahrenheit with excruciating humidity along with 170 inches of annual rainfall a year. It’s not just the tourists that love this weather, either. This weather is perfect for termites and decay caused by moisture and fungi. For the record, that siding that found its new home in Hawaii in 1996 is still standing strong with no structural decay.

The extreme testing doesn’t stop there. This siding is also frequently introduced to multiple colonies of Formosan termites (the worst of the worst when it comes to termites). The test begins with samples of LP SmartSide being placed in a plastic grid with other similar siding products from other suppliers and a few Formosan termite colonies. Then, the feast begins. After 3 years, the LP SmartSide showed no signs of structural damage. However, after 3 months, the other samples were completely destroyed.
