A home’s exterior heralds its style, setting the tone for the interior’s character as well. Whether you’re building Spanish mission-style homes, colonial haciendas, Southwestern rustics, or pueblo adobes, your Builder’s FirstSource locations in Albuquerque and Santa Fe have the top-quality selections of premium siding & exterior trim. From stucco to composite sidings, exterior trims and more, you can trust us to deliver a fair quote and quality materials that will make your project’s bottom line a solid foundation for the future jobs you count on.
Siding crosses all regional styles and period traditions. So for the versatility of lap sidings, we partner with the most durable in the business. Two of our favorite composite sidings are James Hardie and LP SmartSide.
- James Hardie fiber cement board is a proprietary mixture of wood fiber and cement that is engineered for climate with the HardieZone system. In New Mexico, that means products that stand up to intense, arid heat and cold.
- LP SmartSide takes pride in its SmartGuard process that blends reclaimed wood fiber with recycled plastic, resins, and waxes to make a siding that stands up to the elements and freeze-thaw cycles without warping or cracking.
Both carry assorted wood grain imprints that make them look like wood, but their compositions make them tougher than conventional wood siding. Both are resistant to pests, decay, mold, mildew, warping, wind, weather, and impacts. While LP SmartSide cuts and installs easily with conventional carpentry tools just like traditional wood, James Hardie planks and sidings require professional installation with masonry tools.
Trim finishes every job, so your Builder’s FirstSource locations carry all the trims, finishing boards, and millwork you need. Both James Hardie and LP SmartSide offer full lines of trim, fascia, soffit, and even alternative siding patterns such as shingles and shakes. Likewise, Meritec—a subsidiary of JELD-WEN—is a leading manufacturer of not only composite trim boards but also the distinctive millwork panels and specialty pieces needed to create truly unique facades that are resistant to moisture, rot, and pests. Boards are smooth on one side and wood grained on the other, consistent in density and composition, and easy to install. Face pillars, clad windows and doors, or highlight architectural features. You can do it with 50-year warranty materials.
