Choosing the Right Vinyl Siding

The first thing to look at is panel thickness

If a panel is too thin it can show imperfections from the wall underneath. This (in my experience) has been the number one objection to vinyl siding and in most cases could have been avoided if a thicker panel had been used. Thicker panels do cost more but if your contractor is worth his salt, he will give you a price breakdown and it should only be in the hundreds opposed to the thousands for the upgrade. Here are the panel thickness breakdowns: Builder Grade (.040), Thin Residential Grade (.042), Standard Residential Grade (.044), Thick Residential Grade (.046) & Super Thick Grade (.050). These are the benchmarks as per our experience and should give you a great idea of the quality of the panel you are buying.

The second thing to look at is the manufacturer

**Inside Scoop** Few people like to talk about this but I feel that giving you honest up front information will help make you an educated consumer and improve this industry as a whole. Not to mention make your siding purchase a pleasant one that you can enjoy for many years to come.
I can't even begin to tell you how many people contact us trying desperately to find siding to match their installed vinyl siding that received damage due to Bar-B-Q's, Weed Eaters & Hail or to match for a new addition. If they don't make the product any more... insert expletives. Don't get put in this position folks. Pick a manufacturer that has been around for a while and make sure they are the ones who actually make the product. Why? Because times change. Companies fail. And even the main manufactures discontinue colors & product lines. So, keep it basic, stick to the main manufactures and the standard colors because if they don't make it anymore... well, you can't get it.

Exceptional Benefits Of Vinyl Siding

Beauty

Vinyl siding provides enduring beauty and design flexibility. Using a variety of siding and soffit styles, colors, accessories and trim, you can update a ranch, add character to a colonial or even re-create a Victorian. Moreover, you can select one that will be consistent with your home's design and fit into the environment and neighboring homes.

Durability

Vinyl siding is now the number-one siding material available. And for good reason: Nothing beats vinyl siding, accessories and trim for sheer endurance. Unlike many other siding materials, vinyl is impervious to rain, cold, salt and snow. And it won't rot, peel, dent or show scratches, nor will it ever need painting. A simple soap-and-water rinse once a year is all that's required to remove dirt and maintain the look of freshly painted wood.

Value

Vinyl siding is a great investment. Re-siding a home is among the top ten remodeling projects in terms of overall payback. And, if you re-side with vinyl, you can often recoup 100% or more of your investment - if you pick the right company, of course.
