A recent siding project by Marin County Sidewall Co.

Marin County Sidewall Co. brings artisan-level craftsmanship to its work of installing shingle siding throughout Marin, Sonoma and San Francisco Counties. As cedar shingle specialists, the company has strong ties with the Northwest’s premier cedar mills and manufacturers. In turn, it’s able to offer clients a wide range of factory-finished products otherwise unavailable for residential projects. “We’re proud of our ability to offer our customers the best of the best—the best shingles and the best work,” says owner Peter Sutton.

Mr. Sutton and his crew have gained a reputation throughout the Bay Area for their meticulous attention to detail on every job—from small repairs to demanding installations. Despite their 50 years of combined experience exclusively in the shingle industry, the team still focuses on ways they can refine and hone their craft. “Keeping up on new information and looking for ways to improve our practice are parts of our job,” says Mr. Sutton.

Marin County Sidewall Co. uses only brand-name products, including Benjamin Moore, TWP and Sikkens. The company can also custom-match stains and is a proud member of the Marin Builders Association.

Company Philosophy

“We have a high customer satisfaction rate because of the care we take on every job. We make sure the materials we use and craftsmanship we provide are superior. We want our clients to have a voice in the shingling process, and our ultimate goal is to leave them absolutely thrilled and delighted with the results of our work.”
