When was the last time you took a critical look at the exterior of your home? Unfortunately, how your exterior appears influences what others think of your house and ultimately you. In fact, a study found that people make judgments within a tenth of a second. Moreover, once people have this perception, it’s almost impossible to change. While curb appeal is a broad term, it generally refers to how welcoming and attractive your home feels. If the paint is peeling or fading, it’s time to do something about it. One way to improve the fading exterior of your home is with great-looking vinyl siding. And when searching for contractors who install siding near me, choose Xterior LLC.

There are so many benefits to vinyl siding it’s hard to know where to start. But perhaps one of the most important reasons homeowners choose vinyl is its affordability. On average, vinyl is the least expensive of all other types of siding materials. Even so, new siding can be a significant investment. However, installing new siding does yield many benefits.
Above all, installing new siding will boost your home’s curb appeal. Your home will look fresh and updated increasing its charm. Plus, if you decide to sell your home, you may be able to recoup 80% of your costs. Remodeling your siding ranks higher than a major bathroom, kitchen, or basement remodel.
Another one of the attractive benefits of vinyl siding is its low maintenance. Simply give your vinyl siding a gentle cleaning once a year, with a mild detergent and a hose. All other types of siding require much more work. Wood requires a new painting every 3-7 years. Even fiber cement requires painting every 10 years. And while brick doesn’t need painting, mortar joints can become soft, cracked and damaged, which requires repair.
Would you like to increase the energy efficiency of your heating and cooling system? If you decide to install insulated siding, you may be able to reduce your energy costs. Insulated vinyl siding features a layer of polystyrene foam. Polystyrene is a versatile plastic that manufacturers make into a foam material. It’s inert, durable, and resistant to water, mold, bacteria, and mildew. And it’s also a great insulating material.
By installing insulated siding, you may reduce the exchange of heat through the walls. According to the laws of physics, heat flows from warmer to cooler areas. In many homes, a phenomenon known as thermal bridging leaks heat out of your home through wall studs. Typically, a home’s wall is 25% studs. And while there is insulation between the studs, there is none covering the studs. It’s through these uninsulated studs, that heat flows outward.
Thus, by reducing the effects of thermal bridging you lower the cost of your energy bills. Depending on the manufacturer, you can achieve an insulating value of R-2 to R-6. The higher the R-value the greater the insulating effectiveness. Better insulation translates into lower energy bills. Furthermore, the DOE recommends using insulated siding when replacing your home’s exterior to achieve a more energy-efficient home.
Moreover, vinyl siding is durable and long-lasting. Many manufacturers construct it to withstand winds of 110 mph. What’s more, some companies construct panels to withstand even stronger winds. Plus, vinyl can withstand just about any type of weather from the hottest days to the coldest nights, and torrential rains. Furthermore, it doesn’t buckle, rust, warp, corrode and can withstand impact. Moisture resistant, vinyl won’t rot or split. In addition, it’s insect resistant.
While some manufacturer warranties only last 20-40 years, vinyl siding can last much longer. Some siding contractors claim vinyl will last 60 years or more! Usually, the lifespan depends on several factors. Of course, the brand and grade affect how long it lasts. Generally, the grade of siding refers to its thickness. Typically, the least expensive is builder grade which is also the thinnest. There is also standard residential grade and the thickest type, premium. Usually, the thicker the siding, the longer it lasts.
But what most homeowners don’t realize is that proper installation is critical to a siding’s durability and longevity. Vinyl siding expands and contracts with changes in temperature. In fact, the length can vary by as much as 5/8 of an inch. That’s why it’s important to use a qualified contractor, one like Xterior LLC. We’re experienced in all aspects of installing vinyl siding. Our quality products combined with our superior installation will offer your home beauty and protection for many years. Call us today at 336-329-3667 and let us show you how stunning we can make your home.
Today’s vinyl siding options offer a diverse selection of color choices, textures, and styles to enhance your exterior. No matter what the architectural style of your home, there’s a vinyl product to beautify it. With hundreds of color choices including browns, greens, blues and even red, there’s a color to suit any design. Then there’s the style choices: clapboard, traditional lap, Dutch lap, board & batten, or shake. Combined with your choice of a textured or smooth surface, you can see why vinyl is so versatile.
However, after you’ve spent money on your exterior, you want to be sure it looks great for a long time. And vinyl siding manufacturers have worked hard to ensure it does. Many manufacturers adhere to ASTM standards for color retention. ASTM is a non-profit global organization that sets standards for products, systems, and services. Standards set by ASTM help consumers have confidence in the items they buy. With rigorous testing standards, ASTM-certified products assure you of a great product.
Additionally, at Xterior, we offer a limited lifetime transferable warranty with Colorhold® fade protection. It’s one of the strongest homeowner protection warranties in the industry. Plus, it’s transferable should you sell your home.
But wait! Today there are also more vinyl trim choices than ever before. Vinyl trim is more durable and requires less maintenance than wood. Typically, trim highlights certain features, adding character and depth. Trim is the finished detail creating your home’s distinctive style. The basic trim includes shutters, window and door casings. However, you can also add decorative brackets, crown molding or a door mantle. With the easy maintenance of vinyl, you no longer have to worry about painting trim either.
Moreover, with the custom wrapping of your home’s trim from Xterior, your home will look stunning. Whether you want a bold look or something more tranquil, we’ve got the perfect trim color for you. Just give us a call at 336-329-3667 and one of our friendly staff will be happy to help you.
These days, people are trying to be more eco-friendly. Many people try to conserve resources while preventing pollution. Your choice of siding impacts the environment too. Factors such as material, labor, recyclability, energy efficiency, and manufacturing processes are all important. Taking into consideration only one of these factors doesn’t accurately describe the whole environmental impact.
Vinyl siding is one of the most environmentally-friendly products available. And during the manufacturing process, they produce almost zero waste.
According to the Vinyl Siding Institute, vinyl has a lower impact on global warming than most other exterior cladding products. Production needs less water and energy per square foot than other types of siding. Plus, manufacturers can re-use 99% of the scrap. And we’ve already talked about energy efficiency by preventing thermal bridging. Once you consider all the factors, vinyl siding is one of the most environmentally-friendly products available.
Generally, vinyl siding prices range from $3 to $10 per square foot. Typically, as with any remodeling project, there are many aspects of the project that help determine the cost. With siding, the choice of materials, design of your home, and the condition of your current siding all affect your price.
Of course, a bigger house requires more materials and labor. Also, if you have old damaged siding protecting your home, chances are the wall underneath will need repair work. Sometimes it’s impossible to assess the condition of the surface beneath without removing the siding first. Then your contractor can determine if any repair work is necessary. After all, it doesn’t make sense to install beautiful new siding over old rotted wood.
Finally, your choice of product is important in determining the price. We’ve talked about the different thicknesses or grades of vinyl siding. A higher grade is always more expensive. Insulated siding too is more expensive. Also, certain styles or textures may add on cost as well. Moreover, trim work may be an additional expense. Be sure to ask your contractor what the quoted price includes. At Xterior, we will give you a total price and put it into the contract. Every contractor should provide a detailed contract with a final price, so that you never have a surprise at the end of the project.
Online calculators can get you started. But rather than try to figure the cost on your own, consult some siding companies. Xterior is a vinyl siding contractor that provides you with a free estimate.
