Your exterior siding must be tough and durable to withstand harsh weather elements. Yet, it must also reflect your taste with elegance and style. One of the most economical ways to protect your home with beauty and charm is with vinyl siding. The online blogs and videos on how to install vinyl siding make it seem so easy. Until you make a costly mistake.

Why Is Vinyl Siding A Preferred Exterior Cladding?
Other types of cladding all require more maintenance than vinyl panels. Once a popular siding choice, aluminum siding has fallen out of favor. Not only is aluminum siding susceptible to dents and scratches, but the color also fades requiring painting.
Both fiber cement and wood siding require periodic painting to protect against deterioration. Similarly, stucco is subject to cracking that will require repair. Even enduring brick can suffer degradation. A common problem is for the mortar holding the bricks in place to crumble and erode.
For a truly low-maintenance siding material, install vinyl. This cladding only requires periodic cleaning with mild soap and water. Plus, it’s extremely durable, surpassing many industry standards for performance. Moreover, it’s the only exterior siding choice verified by an independent quality control agency.
Aso, it’s the most economical choice out of all the cladding choices. Furthermore, if you choose to install insulated vinyl siding, you can save on energy costs. Insulated siding consists of foam insulation attached to vinyl panels.
Finally, vinyl is extremely versatile with profiles and colors to match nearly any architectural style. You can choose from vertical siding like board and batten or horizontal siding like clapboard. Plus, you can choose from a wide variety of colors in a natural-looking Cedarwood grain pattern.
What About The Siding Installation Process?
Of all the cladding choices, vinyl siding offers the easiest installation. Lightweight, easy to cut, and interlocking design help to keep labor costs down. Additionally, attaching vinyl panels to your exterior is simple and straightforward.
Moreover, you can install vinyl panels over existing siding providing the surface is level with no signs of deterioration. If your old siding isn’t completely flat, you may have to also install an underlayment. Installing an extruded polystyrene underlayment will also insulate your home.
Furthermore, you’ll want to install a house wrap underneath your siding. Although vinyl is highly water-resistant, you will have numerous seams. The house wrap forms an additional moisture barrier to protect your home.
When you install vinyl siding, you must consider its properties for expansion and contraction. Vinyl will expand when heated and shrink when cooled. Thus, to avoid problems with temperature fluctuations, you must nail each siding panel to hang loosely.
If all this sounds complicated, hire the professionals at Xterior. You’ll enjoy years of protection with our quality installation. You can read about our reputation for quality and dependability in our reviews.
Installing Vinyl Siding Is Not A DIY Project
Today, online videos show you how seemingly easy it is to do just about anything. However, installing vinyl siding is something you should leave to the professionals. Mistakes can be costly and you could end up spending a significantly higher amount fixing them. Additionally, if you install your siding incorrectly, you’ll void your manufacturer’s warranty.
Moreover, a trained eye can spot trouble spots you may overlook. Installing new siding over problems will only make the issue worse. A professional contractor knows where to look for potential issues. Plus, your contractor has the knowledge and experience to fix the damage quickly and correctly.
