Q: Do I ever have to paint my vinyl siding?
A: 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.
Q: Does siding come with matching trim?
A: Manufacturers offer a wide variety of trim pieces. Everything from function utility trims to substantial wide trims resembling dimensional lumber, fluted corner posts and decorative crown molding for window headers. Most items are available in all siding colors.
Q: Is it okay to install vinyl siding in the winter?

A: There a few things to consider when choosing insulation…age of home, current insulation in walls, windows, heating system, what’s being left on the home, and much more all play a part in selecting the proper insulation for your home.
Q: How important is the thickness of the vinyl siding I use?
A: In our experience, the compounds in the panel are more important than the gauge or thickness of the panel. The best VALUE is in the panel that combines both high concentrations of impact modifiers and color stabilizers.
Q: Why do I see lots of seams on some resided homes and very few on others?
A: The number of seams in your final project is a function of the length of the siding panel used, how each row of siding is started and how the siding is installed on the home.
Q: How fire resistant is fiber cement siding?
A: While fiber-cement siding does not fireproof a home, it does provide a higher degree of protection than is available from vinyl siding. In a home fire, vinyl siding, being a petroleum product, will eventually feed the flames. Fiber-cement, by its nature, resists burning longer.
Q: How much will it cost to have vinyl siding installed on my home? Why do cost estimates very so widely?
A: There are a huge number of variables involved in the cost of installing vinyl siding on your home. In all, the scope of work for your project will determine the cost of your project. We have installed vinyl siding on single-family homes for less than $10,000 and have completed projects over $50,000. The VALUE is in the details, and in our ability to find the best answer for your home, your family, and your budget.
