    Common Siding Problems in Troutdale, Oregon:

    Troutdale’s climate, characterized by wet winters and mild summers, presents unique challenges for homeowners’ siding. Here are some common problems you might encounter:

    Moisture Damage:

      • Wood Siding: Rot, warping, and peeling paint are common due to moisture absorption.
      • Vinyl Siding: Warping, buckling, and cracking can occur due to trapped moisture behind the panels.
      • Stucco: Cracks and water infiltration can lead to mold growth and structural damage.

    Weather Damage:

      • High Winds: Loose or damaged panels can occur, especially with vinyl siding.
      • Sun exposure: Fading and discoloration are common concerns, particularly with vinyl and wood.

    Material-Specific Issues:

      • LP SmartSide: Defective panels with water absorption issues have been reported in some areas.
      • EIFS/Dryvit Stucco: Improper installation or water infiltration can lead to cracking and delamination.

    Additional Concerns:

      • Insect Infestation: Termites and carpenter ants can damage wood siding.
      • Poor Installation: Improper flashing or drainage can contribute to moisture problems.

    The History of Troutdale Oregon

    Troutdale, Oregon, has a history rich with convergence:

      • Early Names and Settlers: The area was initially called Sandy, after the nearby Sandy River. Early settlers arrived in the 1850s, drawn to the ferry landing at the mouth of the river. David F. Buxton is considered a founding father by some, filing a donation land claim in 1853 in the heart of what is now Troutdale. He’s credited with developing the town’s first rudimentary water system.

      • Harlow’s Trout and the Town’s Namesake: Pioneer John Harlow plays a key role in Troutdale’s identity. He raised trout in a pond near his house in a valley (dale), giving the town its current name – Troutdale. Harlow’s influence extended to convincing the railroad to build a depot at his farm, allowing him to ship his produce more easily. Sadly, John Harlow’s original house was torn down in the 1920s, but his son’s 1900 home still stands and is now the Harlow House Museum.

      • Transportation Hub and Early Fires: The railroad’s arrival in 1873 transformed Troutdale into a transportation hub. Enterprising residents opened businesses and restaurants catering to travelers. However, fires played a harsh role in Troutdale’s history. A major fire in 1907 destroyed most of the buildings, including the original rail depot. The depot was later replaced and moved to its current location in 1979.

      • First Female Mayor and Growth: Clara Latourell Larsson, elected Mayor in 1914, became one of Oregon’s earliest female mayors. The construction of the Columbia River Highway in 1916 further fueled Troutdale’s growth, with businesses catering to tourists. Sadly, another fire in 1925 significantly impacted the business district.

    Today, Troutdale embraces its rich history while looking towards the future. The Troutdale Historical Society keeps the past alive through its museums, showcasing the stories that shaped this Oregon gem.

    Choose this company for you siding, you won't be sorry! The owner Ian, is far and above best contractor I have ever worked with. Excels at communication, follow up and explains everything in a friendly non-pressure way. I interviewed three other contractors, before settling on Elite. I knew I would be in good hands for this huge investment with Ian as he was genuine and sincere about providing the best result. Both the siding and the paint crew are top notch professionals, with a great work ethic and attention to detail, they are Hardie trained so you can be sure the installation was done to the highest standard and it shows! We went from ugly worn out 20 year vinyl to James Hardie siding, and the difference astounding, very very happy with what feels like a new house now.

    Ian is extremely knowledgeable at his craft. He was so patient with all of our questions and concerns. We felt so comfortable from the moment we met him. We met with a few other companies to do our due diligence but Ian was the clear choice.

    My home has a fairly complex exterior, and we were looking to re-side the home as we were dealing with constant issues of water intrusion. I was searching the greater Portland/Vancouver area for Siding Contractors for Hardie Siding, as we really just wanted something that would hold up against the elements and protect us in the case of any nearby fires (we’re close to some woods). After meeting Ian from Elite Home Exteriors, we decided to go with him and we couldn’t have been happier that we decided to go with him as out Siding Contractor. We had additional problems from the water damage too, and the folks he recommended were also top notch. Ian and team are a James Hardie Elite Preferred Siding Contractor, which means basically that he’s passed the highest certification for installing James Hardie siding products. I would work with him again, but based on his fit and finish, I probably won’t need to! Thanks Ian!

    Working with Ian and his company was an absolute pleasure. I currently own 2 homes and have had 3 previous houses, so I’ve had experience with many contractors over the last 20 years and most are not good. My husband and I had a water intrusion issue (undisclosed to us during a house purchase) that we subsequently discovered for ourselves 6 months later in the rainy season. After meeting with many contactors to figure out how to execute the repair, we decided that their prices were outrageous even for just a patch job and we decided to do the right thing and replace all the wood siding with Hardie plank. My husband found Ian online, and we met with him. He is excellent at communication, through emails/text and/or phone calls. He was always pleasant to meet with and didn’t talk to me as if I was a dumb homeowner, which happens quite a bit in this industry. He was happy to answer all my questions and work with us on a documented design for adding architectural details so there was no questions on how the job would look. He and his crew were always punctual and professional. They finished the job ahead of schedule and did everything promised. Honestly, the water intrusion situation was very stressful, but Ian made it a pleasure to get resolved. I am so happy that we went with him and have had excellent results. My high-strung HOA was even happy about his work and gave us a compliment. I wholeheartedly recommend him, and I would be happy to talk to anyone wanting a reference about our pleasant experience. It isn’t every day that such a huge job is completed with such ease and professionalism. I 100% recommend working with Ian and Elite Home Exteriors NW – you won’t be disappointed!

    The South wall of the house had rot and cut siding from a previous connected wood deck. Ian was a pleasure to work with and a consummate professional from start to finish. He answered detailed questions, gave me several options to fit within my budget. Ian communicated with me throughout the process, and was accommodating when I requested more detail, or a change during planning phase. His crew shows up on schedule, were friendly and courteous of my property, and cleaned up thoroughly before leaving. The job was completed quickly and within budget. The new siding and paint is an asset to this house and exceeds my expectations. I enjoyed working with Ian, and would recommend Elite Home Exteriors NW to anyone considering a siding update for their home.

    Glad I hired Ian and his team to replace siding on the south-facing side of my house. Communication with Ian throughout project was as good as any contractor I've worked with. The work was done well, went smoothly, just what you want. Also glad to see them not show up in expensive vehicle wrapped graphics, etc that the customer pays for. I'll have more siding to do on my house and will hire them again.

    I chose to contract the team at Elite Home Exteriors NW to replace my siding as they had a fair price and provided a detail guide of materials, process and standards. They exceeded my expectations by finishing work early, were quick to communicate, did a fantastic job of replacing the siding and the team that did the install were friendly and helpful. I would solidly recommend Elite Home Exteriors!
