Why Siding Contractors Love Vinyl – 7 Vinyl Siding Benefits
Jul 6, 2020
Does your home need a face lift? One of the best ways to improve the exterior of any house is to replace the siding. As most siding contractors will tell you, you have many options when it comes to siding, including wood siding, metal siding, brick or fiber cement siding. However, we believe that the best option for most homeowners is vinyl. Not only does vinyl look fantastic, but it also has several other benefits as well. Here’s why you should choose vinyl siding to update your home.
Increase Your Property Value with Massive Curb Appeal
According to the National Association of Realtors, replacing your siding can increase your property value so that you have a larger investment when you want to borrow from your equity or sell the house. But you can also enjoy the protection and improved appearance while you are living in the house. It’s one of the best exterior investments you can make, along with replacing your roof.
Even if you don’t intend to sell your home anytime soon, it makes sense to increase your property value. With an increased property value, you have more money to tap into should you want to make other improvements via a home equity loan or home equity line of credit. It’s nice to have that money when you want to complete large renovations.
Keep in mind that high-quality vinyl siding won’t just increase your home’s value today. It will also look beautiful for several years. You can be proud of how your home looks with new vinyl siding. Make sure you hire a top vinyl siding contractor such as Xterior LLC. We use products that won’t fade or crack. Additionally, we have decades of installation experience. We take pride in getting the job done right the first time.
When you hire Xterior LLC, you get more than just siding slapped onto your home. We’re a professional company with more than 45 years of combined exterior home renovation experience. So, not only will we replace the siding, but we will also make sure the trim and gutters match and are installed properly.
Here’s what one customer had to say about our services:
“This company did everything they promised. From the initial meeting and quote to all the contacts. Polite, professional and valued our time. The workmanship was great and the clean-up perfect! The siding looks great and the gutters now work and drain properly. I highly recommend them.” Porsche S.
If you are planning to sell, new vinyl siding is a selling point. Buyers love how easy it is to maintain, compared to wood siding. First impressions are everything; when a potential buyer drives up to your house, you want them to be wowed.
Siding Contractors Offer a Huge Range of Colors and Styles
With some siding materials, your color options are limited or you have to paint it. With vinyl siding, you have many options with no paint necessary. We use siding from ABC Supply Co., which is the largest wholesale supplier for exterior home materials in the country. They carry vinyl siding from CertainTeed, Exteria, Exterior Porfolio, Mastic, Napco, Norandex, Royal Building Products, Foundry, Variform, Vytec, and more. What does this mean for you? You have many options.
Our customers are raving about the materials we use. Here’s one review we recently received:
“Really good work. Top quality materials, experienced workforce and cleaned the work area afterwards. Would highly recommend this company.” – James H.
Our siding has a beautiful finish, no matter what color you choose. When we complete your siding installation, we can also color match the trim, so you have a seamless look.
Best of all, it is very simple to match colors should you ever need a repair.
Let’s say you install new vinyl siding and it looks great. Three years from now, a neighborhood ball game gets out of control and a baseball slams into the side of your house, cracking a panel. To replace that panel, you simply need to give us a call to get the color information.
On the other hand, let’s say the same thing happens but you are dealing with a painted wood panel. Over the past three years, the paint has probably faded a bit, and you might have no idea what color paint you used in the first place. Even if you do, it is nearly impossible to get an exact color match. So, you either do your best (but live with a panel that is a slightly different color) or you have to repaint your entire house.
It’s no contest – vinyl siding is the much better option.
Your Vinyl Siding Color Won’t Fade
Speaking of color, did you know that we provide a Limited Lifetime Transferable Warranty with ColorHold® lifetime fade protection?
One common criticism of vinyl exterior siding is that the color can fade over time. While that was true in the past, today’s vinyl brands hold their color extremely well. Even the unforgiving sun here in North Carolina during the summer won’t fade your color.
Because the color doesn’t fade, vinyl is easy to repair if needed. Additionally, it holds its value over time. You don’t have to worry about your home’s curb appeal decreasing over time as your siding fades.
Little to No Upkeep Required
With any type of siding, you’ll have to do some exterior upkeep. However, vinyl makes this an easy job. You don’t have to scrape off old paint, sand the panels, and repaint every few years like you do with wood.
At most, you’ll need to wash occasionally if your siding gets dirty over time – just follow the manufacturer’s recommendations. It’s quick and easy compared to scraping, sanding, and repainting your entire house.
Mold, Mildew, and Pest Resistant
Because vinyl siding is so easy to maintain, it is also easy to avoid common siding problems like mold and mildew. Even algae and moss can grow on siding that isn’t properly maintained! This can cause major problems, especially with wood, which can rot.
Once wood starts to rot, it is an enticing home for all manner of tiny, unwanted house guests including termites, ants, and beetles. This in turn attracts others pests like birds, mice, and other rodents. In short, if you don’t properly maintain wood siding, it can easily turn your home into a zoo.
Mold, mildew, and rot can also cause larger problems in your home. Moisture can seep into your walls, cause rot around windows, and even lead to roof leaks. You’ll have massive home improvement projects on your hand if you don’t maintain wood siding.
Since vinyl is so easy to clean, you have to worry less about pests and moisture problems.
If you are currently considering vinyl to replace wood or another siding material, we can inspect your home for moisture problems before we start the new siding installation process. If needed, the Xterior LLC team has experience replacing windows as well as dealing with roofing and siding. We can handle all your exterior home improvement projects.
Fast to Install
No one likes living in a construction zone. When you hire Xterior LLC, you’re hiring an experienced contractor team who can complete your project quickly (and without cutting corners). Vinyl siding is especially quick to install. We can finish even large homes in just a few days, as long as Mother Nature cooperates. And when she doesn’t, we’ll stay in close communication about the timeline.
This is what one customer had to say about working with Xterior LLC:
“Superb job. Very professional. Great communication through the entire job. As each phase was completed, I was told when the next would be started. The workers made sure when a project was finished, I was happy with the job. Couldn’t be happier with my new windows, siding, and roof.” – Mena G.
One of the advantages of working with Xterior LLC is that we always stick to our timeline. We’re a professional siding contractor team, not someone just doing this on the side. We will always provide our proof of insurance, stand by the price we quote on your contract, and we always show up on time. Some remodeling teams will say they are going to start on a certain date, but then never show up. If they are not reliable about the timeline, you need to worry about the reliability of their installation.
Your home’s exterior is important. Always work with a siding professional like Xterior LLC!
Vinyl is an Affordable Option
Last but not least, one of the biggest advantages to vinyl siding is the price. You get great curb appeal without breaking the bank, especially when you work with our team.
During your consultation, we’ll calculate the price based on the size of your home and any special considerations. We’ll show you multiple siding options so you can pick the one that best fits your budget. The price you see is the price you get. We don’t magically find ways to inflate the cost during the project and present you with a much higher bill at the end. Our price quote is a contract, and we stick to this budget. Every homeowner deserves to understand exactly how much a home renovation project will cost before it starts.
Not only do we help you get the lowest price possible, but we also provide financing options for qualified homeowners. You could get your new siding for zero money down and a very low monthly payment. Your investment may start at as little as $58 per month.
We even offer no-interest financing options for qualified buyers. Yes, you could get the siding replacement project done with financing, but pay no interest! If you are interested in this option, mention it to our sales team. We’re happy to help you submit a financing application. As a local company, we are proud to offer a discount to teachers, first responders, military families and seniors.
And remember, when you work with Xterior LLC, you’ll need to replace your siding less often, which helps you save money over time. We offer a manufacturer’s limited lifetime warranty on your siding, as well as a lifetime warranty on the color, so you don’t have to worry about fading.
We can even assist you with an insurance claim. If your siding was damaged due to a storm or other issue, your homeowner’s insurance may cover the cost to replace it. We speak their language and can help expedite your claim. If you need other paperwork, such as a city permit or permission from a homeowners’ association, we can help in that case too. Our team has experience cutting through red tape so we can get your siding project done.
