Isn't it less costly to just repaint my home?
If you plan to move within the next three years, the answer is probably "yes." But, if you plan to stay in your home longer than that, the calculations begin to heavily favor vinyl siding. We’ll give you an honest evaluation if indeed siding is a good choice for you.
Are there any materials other than vinyl?
Vinyl siding's outstanding features and benefits have made it the most popular siding material in America today. However, there are multiple siding options, which we can explore together. And, you can check out our “Siding Types” page.
How low-maintenance is siding, really?
It's simple. There really is no maintenance, just occasional cleaning. Ordinarily, the cleaning action of a rainfall will be adequate to wash your vinyl siding. However, it should be washed periodically by hosing with a garden hose and clear water, particularly in those areas not exposed directly to rain.
Is one season better than another to have my new siding installed?
Not really. You can have your vinyl siding installed in any season, as your schedule and budget allow. Regardless of when you have your new siding installed, you'll enjoy the immediate benefits of improved appearance, as well as the long-term benefits of durability and easy maintenance.
How do I choose a reputable contractor?
First and foremost, make an informed decision. Require references, and look at their previous work. Word-of-mouth recommendations from neighbors or friends who have recently re-sided their houses are an excellent start. You can also download our “Contractor’s Standards Guide” here on our site.
