Pressure Treated Decking
Is your choice is to go with a real wood pressure treated deck that is stainable? We offer the highest quality, top choice pressure treated lumber. The standard treated decking at the local big box or lumber supplier can cost less. Although this inexpensive treated wood is often full of moisture. This means that it will shrink unevenly and twist when it dries. We only buy top quality premium treated boards that have fewer knots and straighter grain. As a result, your deck will be just as beautiful in the future as when it was first installed.

Siding Company for your Lancaster, PA home
Why replace your home’s old siding?
Have you noticed the exterior of your home is showing its age and there is evidence of wear and tear? Replacing or redoing your home’s siding may not be at the top of your to-do lists, but perhaps it should be. Siding does wear out, crack, break, and just gets old and drab looking.
Protecting your home from potential damage from rain, wind, snow, or insects is just one reason to replace your siding. Another reason is for aesthetics, new siding greatly enhances a home’s curb appeal. As well as taking years off the look of your home.
New siding will rejuvenate and update your home, giving it a completely new look. Also, it significantly reduces cost upkeep and maintenance.
- It will protect your home from elements and can eliminate the need for costly, frequent repainting.
- No paint, no stain, no hassles.
- Cutting and fitting siding so that it is waterproof and windproof takes a professional with years of experience. Our professional siding installers are the best in the Lancaster, PA area. They have many years of installing siding and turning them back into the beautiful homes they once were.
Replace your home’s siding for added energy efficiency
When you install new vinyl siding on your home, you will be adding energy efficiency for these reasons:
- With aluminum siding your home, is encapsulated in one of the greatest conductors of heat and cold.
- Whether your current home has brick, wood, stucco, etc. there is most likely no exterior insulation between the existing exterior covering and the framed walls.
- When vinyl siding is installed, an insulated foam board is first installed increasing the R-value of your home even before the siding is installed and eliminates air infiltration.
- Then, when the vinyl siding is installed, it is a non-conductor of hot and cold leaving no ability for these elements to affect the energy efficiency of your home.
