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

Oakridge Shingles

Here at Executive Exteriors and Remodeling, we give you many options when it comes to replacing the roof of your home. In this post, we will introduce one of our best-selling lines of laminated shingles, Owens Corning’s Oakridge Shingles. Architectural-Shingle-vs-3tab

Oakridge Shingles are a very effective and affordable option when the time comes to replace your roof. The Oakridge series is an architectural style laminated shingle that will provide much more protection than a basic 3-tab shingle style. This architectural style’s added protection is rooted in its overlapping, multi-layer design (see right).

Not only will this design improve the durability of your roof, but it will also improve your roof’s style and look. The Oakridge line comes in nine different color options. This guarantees that your roof will compliment your home’s style perfectly. These shingles find just the right balance between beauty and functionality.

Looking for a little energy efficiency as well? Look no further. The Oakridge Shingles in the color Shasta White can reduce your energy bills and are ENERGY STAR approved.  They cut the cost of your energy bills by reflecting the sunlight back off of your roof which, in turn, reduces heat in your home, A/C usage, and your electricity bill.

If it is finally time to replace that old worn out roof with something more durable, or if it’s just time to update your home’s style, look towards Owens Corning’s Oakridge Shingles. These shingles provide durability, affordability, energy efficiency and beauty to your home.

The Kitchen Facelift


My favorite remodeling jobs completely transform a space and bring it to life. Homeowners nowadays are looking to restyle and completely update their small, outdated kitchens that should’ve been left in the 60s! Right now we have a client couple that is looking for a complete makeover, and we are here to give them the kitchen of their dreams.

Old CountertopOld Kitchen

In these first two photos you can see how small the space was; the kitchen was simply just not efficient for any purpose. Also, the pink counter tops just have to go. Pairing the pink countertops with a vintage, green dishwasher was just another major style alert! I don’t know what the previous designer was thinking, but we are here to fix all of that! This design was outdated, boring, and frankly just not enough space for a proper kitchen

The Process has Begun

Ah yes, the process has begun! Executive Exteriors & Remodeling is here to save the day and bring this kitchen to the 21st century! As you can see in the last two photos, we are giving this outdated kitchen a brand new look. We’ve knocked down a few walls and have completely opened up the space. Having an open kitchen allows for better entertainment, efficiency, and is the key to a great design.

It’s amazing that we actually can add twice as much cabinetry and storage while still increasing the kitchen’s square footage!

The included photos are examples of how we use our state-of-the-art technology to digitally measure out the space where a beautiful Cambria Countertop will perfectly sit. When I say perfectly, I mean it, too! Measuring countertop space digitally allows us to get an absolutely exact measurement. That way, your Cambria Countertop will sit beautifully snug. Pretty cool, huh?

I hope you all are just as excited as we are to see the finishing touches on this beautiful kitchen remodel. Look for “after” shots of the newly remodeled space coming soon.
