Siding & Facia Repair – Rotten Wood Replaced – Exterior Repairs

Siding options have varied over the years on the Outer Banks and the choice depends on the owner’s taste and budget. Cedar shakes, cedar lap & T-1-11 wood siding are the most traditional options and have protected homes here for years. Cedar is naturally resistant to rot and withstands the wind, sun and sand well. As cedar ages, it may turn a darker color that is typical of our historic homes. Treating cedar with a sealer may slow the darkening process and prolong the life by preventing them from drying and cracking. Untreated cedar may last for years, and sealed or stained cedar usually last a little longer, depending on the exposure to the elements and maintenance. Wood siding is a good option for homes here.

Vinyl siding is an affordable and attractive option for many homes, In the past it was not uncommon for vinyl siding to blow off here during a strong storm. But, in recent years siding manufactures’ have developed products that are much more wind resistant. One of our favorites is CertainTeed’s Cedar Impressions. Cedar Impressions gives the look of cedar shake shingles without the maintenance. Vinyl siding that has been designed to withstand high winds is a good option for your Outer Banks home

Cement fiberboard is a fairly new product, also known as the brand name “Hardiplank,” that performs well here. Because it is a cement product it will not rot, although it will deteriorate if it is in constant contact with water. Cement fiberboard needs to be painted, but typically does not need to be repainted as often as wood. Since it does not rot and will not deteriorate, cement fiberboard is a very good option.

Water is the most damaging element to most types of siding and the walls they protect. If roofs and windows are maintained so that water is not allowed to enter, then rot can be prevented. Call Gallop today for a FREE No-Hassle Consultation at 1-800-653-9306.

The company returned my phone call promptly and had a tech at my house the next day. Provided a fare repair quote and had the repair crew at the house the following day. Kept us updated during the repair, cleaned up afterwards and fixed the leak the first time. Thank you !

Had the best experience with this company. Bud and his assistant helped with getting our new hot tub up on our deck in Kitty Hawk. Not only did they do a good job - they went above and beyond in helping us get it in the right spot which took a little patience and manuvering. They were so helpful we can't thank them enough.

My overall experience has been very positive. You can judge the character of a company by the way they quickly address issues that arise. I suppose most jobs go off without a hitch, but I had a minor issue arise after I paid for the job in full. Everyone I dealt with, starting with my salesman Devon, demonstrated Gallop's commitment for standing behind their work. I'll use Gallop again, and I will easily be able to recommend them.

Took us a couple of phone calls and pictures being sent back and forth but the finished project was great. Daniel and crew were wonderful to work with at the job site and Stephanie was my go to at the office. I can't say enough good things about our experience and the work. Call them, very reasonable.
