Home, Sweet Home and The Advantages of Vinyl Siding Cost
Mar 10, 2020
Okay, we get it. It feels a little odd to combine a lovely phrase such as home, sweet home and vinyl siding cost for your house. In fact, the transition probably feels a bit abrupt. However, let’s consider what home means to you. How your house becomes a HOME in general. Words from the song, Clari (don’t worry, we hadn’t heard of this opera either until we did a little research), say it well. Mid pleasures and palaces though we may roam, Be it ever so humble there’s no place like home! A charm from the skies seems to hallow us there, Which, seek through the world, is ne’er met with elsewhere. Home! Home! Sweet, sweet home! There’s no place like home! There’s no place like home! We’re also seeing a little reflection of The Wizard of Oz in these wise words. Click your heels, repeat the mantra, “there’s no place like home.” And, poof! You’re there. Although, we have no magic shoes, our team at Xterior LLC has a magical touch. We will help you make your house become the home you wish it to be. No sparkly red heels are involved.
Making Your House a HOMEProbably, you’re still wondering, what on earth does this early 19th century opera and heel-clicking have to do with your vinyl siding. For starters, your house isn’t just a place. Add one more letter just after the “P” to make it what it should be. It should be your palace. At Xterior LLC, we have that extra “A” to turn your home into the palace it deserves to be. In fact, we have that extra “A” in more ways than one. Let’s start with our A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau. That’s an A that we’ve worked hard to earn and intend to keep it. Turning your place into a palace ensures that we get to keep our A+. Customer satisfaction is at the top of the list of our goals. To guarantee that our customers are satisfied, we use top-of-the-line products that help transform their home into the envy of the neighborhood. Furthermore, our expert installation process means that our transformation will last for years to come. Similarly, to make your house a home and your palace, it should reflect a part of you. Therefore, we take the time to get to know you and your needs. During our free consultation, we sit down and discuss what you envision. Then, we review your goals and make suggestions based on what we see at your home and hear from you.
Types of Siding Material on the MarketSince your home should reflect your lifestyle and personality, let’s consider the multiple types of siding material on the market.
- Vinyl Siding – On the market since the 50s, vinyl siding is a durable and low-maintenance material. With varieties in color and texture, it offers a wide range of exterior aesthetics.
- Stucco – Made from cement, sand, lime, water and sometimes epoxy, stucco is typically found on the West Coast. Installation can be costly and time-consuming.
- Cedar Shake – A higher quality than other wood siding, cedar siding is an attractive choice. However, cedar siding requires significant maintenance.
- Engineered Wood – Fireproof and water-resistant, engineered wood is comprised mostly of wood and a few additional materials. Unlike traditional wood, it cannot be repainted.
- Brick siding – A traditional option for many homeowners, brick siding is durable and easy to maintain. Although, the cost of brick and the cost of installation is generally higher than alternatives.
- Fiber cement – Similar to vinyl siding, fiber cement allows homeowners to have the look of wood with less maintenance. Due to the heaviness of cement siding, fiber cement is often more expensive than vinyl siding to purchase and install.
- Metal Siding – Gradually rising in popularity, metal siding panels are strong and durable. The downside is that metal siding panels are expensive.
- Stone – Used for a decorative appearance for a home, design options for stone are versatile. Fabricated stone is more cost-effective than individually placed stones.
Ensuring Your Vinyl Siding Blends with Your HomeSince vinyl siding is so flexible, let’s consider its power to make your place the palace you wish to be. Whether you’re looking for the best curb appeal or just need a fabulous way to economically protect, your home, Xterior LLC can help. First, consider design and curb appeal. We proudly offer products from ABC Supply Co. and Beacon Building Products, both of which are leading suppliers of quality vinyl siding. Their siding also comes in a wide variety of colors so that you can find the perfect siding color to match your home. Better yet, we offer a Limited Lifetime Transferable Warranty with ColorHold® lifetime fade protection.

We ensure that installation blends with your home. From the soffit to trim, we make sure that lines match and no obtrusive seams interrupt the flow. Our professional installation can include the custom wrapping of your home’s trim to match your siding as well.
Save Time and Money on Vinyl Siding CostIf you are concerned about vinyl siding cost in general, let’s review a few key benefits. Per linear foot, average vinyl siding cost is significantly less than most other siding material. Plus, let’s contemplate what value means in general. Often, time is money as well. Therefore, as you think about siding prices and the list above, consider upkeep as well. This is another area where the cost of vinyl siding saves you. First, while vinyl siding provides an exterior similar to wood, you don’t need to care for it like wood. Obviously, maintaining the beauty of wood requires upkeep. By upkeep, we mean painting. Painting often means sanding, ladders, drop cloths and lots of effort and time. Since your color choice at Xterior LLC is made to last, you needn’t worry about painting vinyl siding or drop cloths for the exterior of your home. Likewise, vinyl is easy to clean. Easily, rinse off loose dirt with a hose. Plus, you don’t need costly chemicals to clean it. Just wash according to manufacturers’ instructions. Speaking of upkeep, some of our customers wonder if vinyl siding gets brittle? Fortunately, with our mild weather in NC, this isn’t an issue. The areas that we serve, such as Burlington, Asheboro, Reidsville, Cary, Durham, Raleigh, Wilmington, Jacksonville, Fayetteville, High Point, Kernersville NC, Greensboro, NC and Winston-Salem don’t have extremely low temperatures. A professional installer knows how to allow for expansion, if installing in the winter. We use materials that come with warranties for a long life, so there’s no need to worry. In fact, vinyl siding has a good record when it comes to keeping out the heat and cold temperatures and lowering your utility bills. Various grades are available and some have added insulation.
Advantages of Choosing Xterior LLC as Your Siding ContractorNext, it’s imperative to choose the best siding contractor to ensure properly completed work. Xterior LLC has over 45 years of combined experience in the home improvement industry. Why does this matter? For one, it means that you can trust the work of experienced installers. Similarly, longevity in the business results in increased buying power. In other words, an experienced company saves money on materials needed. Thus, you save money too! Additionally, finding a company that carries full insurance is critical. This protects you and your home. If a company does not offer a written copy of their insurance certificate, ask for it. Then, call the insurance company to verify this information. Unfortunately, some firms present certificates which are not valid. This puts you and your home at risk. To learn more about verifying insurance, check out this article from the Winston-Salem Journal. Comparably, it’s important to receive a written and signed contract. We spell out all of our work ahead of time in writing so that there are no last-minute surprises. Equally important, we offer manufacturers’ limited warranties for worry-free ownership of your new siding. Likewise, we keep families in mind because we are a family and family-owned. Not only is your safety paramount, your convenience is critical. We honor your time and show up when you expect us to be there. While installations can be messy, we diligently work to keep the area safe for you, your family and guests. After installation is complete, we thoroughly clean our work area so that your new palace can shine as a new palace should.
