Frequently Asked Questions: Siding

1) How do I select the siding style that is appropriate for my house?
There are many styles, colors and accessories that are available. We will come to your home or office to help you decide. Keep in mind that in some cases, you may have style restrictions placed on you by your homeowners association or condo association.

2) How long is the siding warranted for?
Most of our product lines are warranted for the lifetime of the original owner against manufacturing defects. Upon transfer of the property the siding is warranted from the date of installation for fifty years.

3) Will new siding effect the resale value of my home?
Siding is one of the most cost-effective investments you can make to improve the value of your home.

4) My house is constructed of brick, will siding work for me?
Sure. Siding can be used over just about any contemporary building material: brick, block, wood, stone, etc. When we visit you for your free estimate, we will be glad to discuss any of these kinds of concerns.

5) Do I ever have to paint my siding?
No! premium vinyl siding is virtually maintenance free. The most you ever have to do is give your home a washing with soap and water once or twice a year.

6) Does siding come with matching trim?
Manufacturers offer a wide variety of trim pieces. Everything from function utility trims to substantial wide trims resembling dimensional lumber, fluted cornerposts and decorative crown molding for window headers. Most items are available in all siding colors.

7) Does vinyl siding have seams?
Vinyl siding is generally available in 12' to 12-6" lengths, so it needs to be overlapped at the ends to cover an entire wall. Vinyl sidings are designed to provide a virtually seamless appearance and a good siding installer will lap you siding away from traffic to further minimize the laps.
