When it comes to vinyl siding, there are many different things that a consumer looks to consider. Siding comes in so many colors and styles that it may cause a headache to those unaware of everything! At Moonworks, we’re trying to make the process as easy as possible for you, so we’ve created a guide to smooth the process along.
Choosing your Siding
The thickness of the vinyl is the main key to its durability and cost. The thicker that the vinyl is, the longer it lasts, the better it withstands damage, and the more stable it is. Of course, the thicker the vinyl is, the more the vinyl will cost. Another important decision is the color. When choosing, make sure that you choose a color that will compliment your home and you will be able to enjoy for years to come, not just because it is trendy in the moment.
Choosing an Installer
When it comes to installers, a history of quality work is ALWAYS the best promise of quality. As a consumer, look for an experienced installer who isn’t afraid to show you other works that they have done in the past. When properly installed, vinyl has a generally loose appearance. Certain signs of work that has been done poorly include bulges, warps and separations in the siding, sags in vinyl soffit and ripples in aluminum fascia. Be careful about your choice of siding brand. Not all vinyl siding brands are the same and many lower priced choices include other materials in their making. Siding that is not one hundred percent vinyl will be prone to cracking, breaking and peeling.
There are some other things to take into consideration as well when making the big purchase. One factor to possibly look into is types of warranties available. Various manufacturers offer different options, so make sure you are completely happy and comfortable with the warranty from the brand you choose. Vinyl siding is especially easy to maintain. There is no need to ever paint the siding and the only regular maintenance vinyl siding needs is to be spray washed once or twice a year!
Overall, vinyl siding is a great investment to your home! Although it may cost a little more than you anticipate up front, the fact is that over time, you will have less to worry about! No need to worry about painting shingles and repairing wood on your home – instead just a quick power wash and your home looks brand new. Consider residing your home today, maybe even with Moonworks!
