Although some manufacturing jobs have been contracted overseas to promote professional rather than labor job opportunities in America, there is still some product manufacturing in the United States and the goods produced are the best in the world. One industry which proves this point is construction, with which there are jobs onsite of building and there are factory positions producing modular systems of building. Siding for homes and commercial buildings is a perfect example of a situation in which it is easier to make the product at home in America than to contract overseas and hire a shipping service to deliver it.

Not Your Grandfather’s Vinyl Siding

Students of design and engineering studies have developed vinyl siding systems which are far more efficient than the decorative exterior cover vinyl once was. Modern vinyl siding can be thicker than it once was to add an actual R-Value insulation rating to your home, or it can come in modular panels with additional insulation engineered into the actual design. As with traditional vinyl siding styles, modern vinyl is available in any color you want and provides the best “bang for your buck” in terms of how efficiently it provides a building exterior while remaining relatively inexpensive for both purchase and installation.

Composite Shake Siding Systems

Composite Shake Siding emulates the classic appeal of cedar without the need for routine maintenance and refinishing required by traditional cedar building exteriors. The value of composite shakes is how they provide superior insulation to your building’s interior while maintaining the structural integrity you expect from the exterior.

Engineered Lap Siding

Engineered lap siding is similar to composite shakes in its component design, but is applied as boards instead of individual shingles. Wood boards were used in days long gone, composites which utilize the strengths of both wood and plastic provide a much more efficient siding system on today’s new buildings. Engineered lap siding works the same as traditional wooden lap siding as to how each piece overlaps the last to build an impervious exterior to a building’s walls to keep the outside elements outside while the treated air inside maintains a comfortable temperature and environment for daily life.

Modern home exteriors are produced and installed in America by American workers. Whether making the product in a factory or installing it onsite, modern siding systems offer jobs in the U.S. while providing an essential element to every home or business.
