Vinyl siding is the most popular choice when it comes to home siding materials. Siding made of 100% vinyl is extremely durable. It stands up to extreme weather conditions and will not peel, blister, flake, crack or corrode. Its virtually maintenance-free finish means no scraping, painting, patching or replacing rotted wood.
While vinyl siding is not for everyone, millions of American homeowners have decided that it’s exactly right for them. And if the substantial cost could be reduced, legions of others would surely follow. The truth is, the price of a vinyl siding installation can be cut nearly in half if you’re willing to do the work yourself. Vinyl siding is sold by most home centers and comes with fairly complete instructions. The tool requirements are also modest.
Vinyl siding is available in a variety of thicknesses. The thicker the siding is, the more rigid and durable it is, thus providing a longer life expectancy. Each panel is nailed to the house in a “loose” fasten to allow for expansion and contraction to occur during varying temperatures and changing weather conditions. It never needs painting because of the UV protection in the vinyl siding.
Benefits of vinyl siding include:
- A wide range of colors
- Darker colors specially formulated with revolutionary fade-resistant technology
- Deep, wood-grain texture resembling real wood siding
- Enhanced locking system to keep panels flat and straight
- Panels that resist pests, dents and dings and won’t warp, buckle or crack
- Insulating value up to R-4
- Only periodic washing needed
- Lower heating and cooling costs
Our siding experts will perform your vinyl siding installation. The install is finished quickly because of the simple locking mechanisms of the panels. Vinyl siding is low maintenance because it never needs painting, unlike wood siding. The only maintenance it really requires is that it should be washed periodically to remove mold, mildew and dirt from its surface.
In recent years long length vinyl siding (20-25 foot panels) has become available in more profiles and colors. This option reduces laps, and creates a better overall appearance. Contact us for more information at (480) 435-9731
