If you are familiar with living in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs you’ll understand that sometimes homeowners can endure all four seasons in one day. Living with extremes in temperature requires some thought into choosing what type of siding is best for your location and lifestyle. Vinyl siding combines select premium materials that simulate a genuine wood appearance while providing energy-efficiency. It not only reduces your energy consumption, but it helps reduce noise in urban locations and provides protection against different types of weather.
Vinyl siding is the most widely used material today. Vinyl siding comes in different sizes from 3”, 4”, 5”, 6”, and 7” and comes in beveled, dutchlap, or board and batten vertical panels. On display, we have CertainTeed, Norandex, Royal, Mastic, &Alside sidings. Vinyl sidings now have fade protection such as CertainTeed’s Perma Color Lifetime Fade Protection that infuses UV inhibitors to allow for darker color shades. Vinyl sidings are also available with insulation backers to save energy and give support to the panels such as Mastic’s Structure Siding.
Vinyl siding won’t bow or sag and resists mold and mildew. It also minimizes the risk of pests like ants and termites, which often cause damage to the structure of your home. Lastly, vinyl siding is low maintenance. There is no painting required, allowing you the luxury of spending your time outdoors enjoying the beauty of your home rather than continually maintaining it.
The care for vinyl siding goes as far as soap, water, and a garden hose. Some homeowners have power washers, which can also provide a fast, efficient way to keep your siding looking beautiful year after year.
It’s water resistant, comes in a variety of colors, and won’t scratch, chip or flake.
