Selecting the right siding is key to protecting your home from the elements and giving it an attractive look to increase your property value and make you proud of your home for years to come. Siding comes in a variety of materials, and it’s important to choose the one that matches your property’s requirements and your personal taste. We would be happy to meet with you to go over the benefits of each option and help you decide which choice best suits your needs. Here are some highlights of different siding options we have to offer.
As the most popular siding in the U.S., vinyl siding offers the widest color palette from which to choose. Vinyl is an attractive option as it’s almost maintenance free, requiring only an occasional wash, and is easy to install, resulting in cost savings. However, vinyl is not the most durable option as it can be easily dented. Replacing individual parts can also be challenging, and there is the potential for color fading over time.
If you prefer colors in a darker hue and are seeking long-term protection against the sun’s UV rays and intense heat, you might want to consider Ply Gem siding incorporating SolarDefense Reflective Technology. This siding helps maintain your home’s bright colors and is easy to install. The reflective siding is a greater investment than traditional siding and comes in a limited number of available styles and colors.
Would you like to reduce your utility bills? Insulated siding, made of premium vinyl bonded to breathable expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam, is an effective way to lower energy costs. The foam-backed siding offers noise reduction and shock absorption, making it an attractive option and excellent for home resale value. It requires a greater investment than standard vinyl and has a limited number of available styles and colors.
Long-lasting and high-quality galvanized steel will protect your home for years to come. Fire, fade, and impact resistant, steel siding needs little maintenance. It requires a greater investment than standard vinyl but is energy efficient, leading to lower utility bills. Although it may dent, our steel siding comes with a 50-year hail warranty. With a more challenging installation process, it can be difficult to replace individual panels.
If you are looking for an affordable yet durable and long-lasting alternative, aluminum siding might be the right option. It’s fire, pest, and rot resistant, and can withstand winds up to 165 miles per hour. It’s also energy efficient, helping to lower energy bills and leading to long-term savings. Featuring a modern and industrial aesthetic, it’s growing in popularity. Although strong, aluminum siding can scratch and dent, and its colors may fade. High winds may result in “pinging” sounds.
