    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.

    We contracted with Gallop after several failed attempts at roof repair from another contractor. They were quick to respond and accurate in their diagnosis of the problem. Follow up and resolution of open issues was prompt and professional. Highly recommend!

    Gallop Roofing did an excellent job replacing our cafe roof. They were professional with estimates for our insurance company all the way through to the finished product.

    I contacted Gallop Roofing to provide me an estimate to replace some aluminum fascia on an oceanfront beach house. Not only did they provide the best estimate, but when they did the work they also discovered some damage to my roof and did a temp dry in for me to prevent further damage with bad weather in the near forecast. They took before and after pictures of the roof that I was able to provide to my insurance company. Their work crew showed up on time and provided clear expectations as far as when the work would be completed. They went above and beyond in customer service and the new fascia looks great.

    We had a leak in our roof above the kitchen at our beach cottage and Gallop got someone out there quickly to install a temporary roof to prevent any further issues until a full repair could be done. We really appreciate their prompt response for a reasonable price.

    We have had an annoying leak on a flat roof for 30 thirty years that we could not locate and fix. It is such a relief to have a dry room no matter how hard it rains or what direction the wind blows.
