In 1957, a small plastic company, then known as Taytec Corporation, produced the world’s first vinyl siding product. Unfortunately, it wasn’t a very good replacement for its rival, aluminum. This early version had cracking and fading problems. Fast forward ahead 50 years and today vinyl has a very different story. Fade-resistant, durable, versatile, and nearly maintenance-free, it has become the most popular choice for siding.
However, even a great product requires a quality installation by experienced technicians. At Xterior LLC, you can get both. With over 45 years of combined experience in the home improvement industry, we’re also BBB-accredited. We’re a trusted NC home improvement company backed by our many positive reviews. Moreover, we obtain superior products from ABC Supply Co. Inc., one of America’s largest wholesale providers of siding products.

Probably, the inexpensive price tag and low maintenance are what make vinyl the most popular choice. Out of all the choices for protecting your exterior, vinyl is the most economical. Additionally, there is very little upkeep. Vinyl requires only a once a year cleaning with a mild detergent and garden hose. That’s it. You don’t even need a pressure washer to keep it in good shape for decades. With wood or brick, there is constant maintenance. Wood needs to be scraped and painted and brick requires maintenance when the mortar is damaged, to prevent leaks.
Additionally, vinyl is available in a huge selection of colors and styles. Whatever your architectural style, vinyl can enhance and beautify your home. With many manufacturers offering over 40 color choices, you’re sure to find the perfect color. And, we offer a limited lifetime transferable warranty with ColorHold® lifetime fade protection on our vinyl products. Plus, styles range from Dutch Lap, Beaded, Board & Batten, Shake, shingle, and even wood. Some styles mimic wood so closely that you can’t tell that it’s vinyl from a distance.
Certainly, exterior protection is 50% product and 50% installation. That’s why it’s so important to get a quality installation from an experienced contractor. Improper nailing causes more than 90 percent of the problems associated with vinyl siding. Vinyl must have room to expand and contract otherwise you’ll have problems with rippling, bending, warping, and twisting.

Undoubtedly, you can use online calculators to try and come up with a cost for new siding. The problem is, not only is each house unique, but your choices will influence your bottom line as well. While it’s obvious that house size plays a big part in cost, so does the architectural design. Odd shaped openings, turrets, or gables are more complex and require more labor.
Additionally, vinyl comes in different thicknesses or grades. While the thicker grades are more durable, they’re also more expensive. In addition, textured vinyl is more expensive than a smooth surface. Finally, the removal of old siding or any repair work to the outside walls will be an additional expense as well.
If you’re thinking about remodeling the exterior of your home, consider vinyl. Virtually maintenance free, durable, versatile and beautiful, vinyl siding can transform your home. It’s available in a wide range of colors and styles to enhance any architectural style. While it’s important to choose a quality vinyl product, it’s also important to choose a company that performs quality installation. And the company that performs superior installations is Xterior.
