We offer professional and affordable siding for your home or business in Austin, Bastrop, Round Rock and all of Central Texas!
Siding Installation Services
Installation is a sensitive process because of the materials you’re dealing with, and how the siding must specifically be attached to your home. Siding must be installed rather loosely (due to shifts in weather that change the size) and you need the correct materials to properly cut it. The most common mistake from people that hire inexperienced companies or go the DIY route is that the placement of the materials is wrong. The side of your home and essentially the entire look of your property from the outside depends on the knowledge of our professional installers. There's no reason to worry when you hire 21st Century Texas for the job!

Tips for Readying Your Home for New Siding
- We will need access to the driveway to load materials.
- Be prepared for the noise!
- Removal of loose items (pictures, plates, and figurines) from wall shelves and walls. Hammering may create vibrations that shake these items off of shelves and walls.
- Remove all items from around the house where debris may fall: patio and pool furniture, potted plants, gardening equipment, and grills. We try to protect the plants, but many times the layout of the landscape prevents us from doing so. Leaves or blooms may be knocked off plants near your home during the job.
- Please check your power breakers and outside electrical outlets to make sure they are operating correctly. We will need to use power tools.
- Keep children and pets away from the work area.
- 21st Century Painting and Roofing will roll yard, sidewalks, driveway, patios and flower beds around your home to make every effort to pick up loose nails and debris.
Types of Siding
Installing new siding on your home is one of a few home improvements that can improve the appearance of your home, as well as the value and the ‘curb appeal’ real estate agents so often talk about. 21st Century Painting & Roofing is a contractor that deals specifically with James Hardie products as it’s the standard of the industry. We perform window installation as part of our process, should you have need for that as well. We offer up to $1,000 off Hardie products as a general promotion, so make sure you ask us about it when you call.
James Hardie products are fiber-cement based. Here is some more information about the James Hardie siding types we work with:
- HardiePlank Lap Siding: This is the most popular siding in America. It can be found on over 5.5 million homes. It's strong, durable and beautiful. HardiePlank lap works within all climates. It comes in a variety of shapes and sizes and comes with a 30-year non-prorated, transferable, limited warranty.
- HardieShingle Siding: This one looks just like warm and authentic cedar shingles; however, it resists rotting, cracking and splitting. HardieShingle is Engineered for Climate® just like all other brands of Hardie products. The material can withstand any home’s weather challenges. The shingle comes in a variety of decorative edges. It comes in individual siding shingles and is ideal for smaller coverage areas. The fiber-cement shingle also comes with a 30-year, non-prorated, transferable, limited warranty.
- HardiePanel Vertical Siding: HardiePanel vertical siding provides both value and durable performance. It will stand up to your climate’s harshest conditions. Usually, you combine this product with HardieTrim boards for a traditional board and batten look. The vertical siding, like the above brands, comes with a non-prorated, transferable 30-year limited warranty.
- HardieTrim Boards: These add a beautiful finishing touch to a Hardie-sided home. They provide unmatched durability and allow you versatility. You can create a wide variety of design possibilities for trim, gables, corners, fascia, windows, doors and more. HardieTrim boards have a 15-year, transferable, limited warranty.
- Hardie Soffit Panels: The Hardie Soffit panels are available in a vented and non-vented version and in a range of pre-cut sizes. They are noncombustible and come with a 30-year, prorated, transferable, limited warranty.
- Artisan Exterior Design: This architectural grade line features Artisan® Lap and Artisan® Accent Trim products. Backed by 15 years of research, this patented technology provides a product with superior structural integrity and gives discriminating home owners the opportunity to express themselves through the highest design levels. They deliver superb finish to a luxury home.
21st Century Painting and Roofing will also work with the following types of products upon request. Because they are NOT of the James Hardie variety, please note that the promotion of up to $1,000 off does NOT apply. Our promotion only applies to James Hardie products. We will work with these types of materials from other manufacturers should you decide that you don’t wish to work with the James Hardie products. They are:
- Cedar: Depending on the pattern choice, cedar can be high-priced; however, it is durable.
- Pine: Cheaper than cedar, pine holds paint well. It does require regular maintenance because it is prone to rot.
- Composite: Composite appears like traditional wood and can take a variety of finishes. It's engineered so it’s very durable. It is also much more economical than hardwood.
- Horizontal Lap Siding: The cost on this can vary depending upon the materials used. Usually comprised of wood, this material is installed by nailing through the sheathing into the studs and not through the overlapping edges.
- Board and Batten: This refers to the treatment done to vertical boards on the outside of houses, where batten covers up the seams. This is the most common and simplest type to install. It can last up to 30 years.
- Wood Strip Siding: This siding must be installed with a continuous waterproof membrane behind it. Various types of wood can be used for it, and price depends on wood combination. It can be relatively cheap or very expensive.
- Log Cabin Siding: It must seal all sides to make it waterproof; water damage could be extensive otherwise. It’s engineered for minimal waste and measuring. A pre-finished version can save you time and money in the installation.
- Shake Siding: Usually comprised of different types of wood like cedar, pine and redwood, shake siding is rustic-looking and very durable. The installation process is relatively easy, although it takes a while. Prices can depend on what part of the country you’re installing in, as well as the finish you choose on the product. It’s generally a middle-of-the-road pricing structure on the scale.
- Shingle Siding: This type of siding can last 30 to 40 years, depending on the material used and the location of the installation. Redwood and cedar are among the most common materials for it. It’s potentially flammable and you must make concessions for that. It can come easily undone in high wind conditions and needs to be replaced more often than other types of siding, which makes it more expensive over time.
Staggered Siding: Staggered siding consists of small pieces of wood attached vertically to an exterior wall. Cedar is a fairly inexpensive option, but wears out over time. You can replace only the shakes that are damaged, not the entire structure.

Choose the Right Siding
When it’s time to choose the right siding, be positive you’re looking at the most important factors that will have you end up with the perfect fit for your home. They range in complexity, but we’ve broken it down to bite-sized tips for you!
Environmentally Friendly (R-Value)
You can check something on siding called the R-value, a measure of thermal resistance. You want the highest R-value you can find! When the number is higher, it is directly correlated with the product's ability to keep the outside...outside!
Heat and cold will both have more trouble getting into your home when your siding is beefed up with a great R-value. At the very least, you want a rating of two. A higher number will be more environmentally-friendly, save you money in the long term, and have plenty of insulation to ensure maximum protection.
How powerful is the siding? It’s an important question, one that sometimes can be directly related to how much you’re willing to spend. A quality home contractor will be able to go over all your options and let you know how powerful select brand’s offerings are. Budget and whittle down your choices!
After all the key function factors, think of your personal satisfaction with the siding you’ve decided on. This is the time to imagine how it will look with your home. Does a certain brand come in the perfect color, or can it be painted up to look just how you want? Have you gone with a cement product that you want to leave as-is? As you can tell, you have lots of important factors to consider when evaluating the look!

Have used 21st Century three times over 6 months. Each time was hassle free and I have been very happy with the quality of work and their excellent service at a reasonable price.
Did a great job, was friendly, and we would hire them again.
They completed a fast and easy job to fix wood on an outdoor chimney. Really great job! We were in the process of fixing this home to buy another -- we will definitely call 21st century again!
21st Century was professional from start to finish. And they were incredibly flexible as certain challenges came up unexpected in our project. Their flexibility was greatly appreciated.
We were getting ready to sell our house and called 21c to come out. They told us what they could do and made the house look great for putting on the market. They followed up and checked on everything and we were very impressed with their dedication to clients.
