Choosing Vinyl Siding for Your Home
Vinyl siding products have come along way in the past 30 years. Once considered the cheap alternative, and second best to cedar siding, now vinyl siding has become the standard for most starter homes and luxury homes alike.
It goes without saying that nobody wants to paint their house, or incur the unnecessary expense of hiring a house painter. Especially when you consider that your home will need to be painted approximately every seven years. Over time the paint on your home will begin to blister or crack due to weather fluctuations. And, if a cheap quality paint was used, your paint job may not even look good for five years.
This is where vinyl siding becomes an excellent value for home owners. With products like CertainTeed's Monogram and Cedar Impressions brands, it's hard to tell the difference between vinyl and natural wood.
CertainTeed vinyl siding has been on the cutting edge of home exteriors for years. Quality vinyl siding installers choose to install CertainTeed siding because of the flexibility of styles, over 40 colors to choose from, and design quality that is backed up by a building products company that's been around for over 100 years. CertainTeed stands behind their products with a lifetime warranty that includes labor.
It's not enough that a vinyl siding company carries the best products. It’s also critical that they employ the best vinyl siding installers who have a keen attention to detail. Higher quality vinyl siding requires advanced skill levels to install.
Cedar Impressions siding, for example, is very temperature sensitive. The installer has to be careful to follow the temperature gauge to ensure the siding will not buckle or fall loose when the temperature changes. In addition to a vapor barrier, which is usually standard in a vinyl siding project, the company can also install insulation board underneath your new siding. Many experts believe this is a critical step to maximizing the energy efficiency of your home.
When you hire a vinyl siding company to handle the exterior remodeling of your home, it will be helpful to choose a siding style color and complementary trim. Trim is very important for finishing off those corners and windows, and allows for proper venting and protection against moisture. When interviewing a vinyl siding company, they should take care to notice little things, like fixture mounting plates, window trim, and faucet in-set boxes.
Better yet, visit the company’s showroom to learn about the nuances of vinyl siding and the various options available. There are a wide variety of siding colors and finishes to suit nearly everyone’s taste – especially siding from quality manufacturers like CertainTeed. If a picture is worth 1,000 words, a visit to a showroom is worth 1,000 pictures!
