However, there are some drawbacks to choosing vinyl siding for your home. Before you decide to install vinyl siding, you should learn more about what these drawbacks are in order to make an informed decision when it comes time to choose a siding for your home. First, if you decide to put your home on the market, you should be made aware that some potential buyers consider vinyl to be a low-quality material. Additionally, this type of siding may end up covering some of the important architectural features of your home, especially if you have an older house that features some beautiful woodworking accents.
Since vinyl siding expands, it must be hung loosely, but if you go to the wrong contractor and it’s hung too loosely, then this will allow wind to get underneath the siding, lifting it away from the house. This type of siding is a more affordable alternative compared to more expensive siding options, but it’s still prone to damage and can break or crack over time. Because so many things can go wrong with vinyl siding, it’s important that you learn more about the pros and cons of this siding option and what alternatives are available.
Most homeowners mistakenly believe that siding is waterproof. Unfortunately, they don’t realize that if the siding isn’t waterproofed properly, that it begins to eventually show signs of water damage. Only an experienced and skilled contractor knows how to waterproof siding correctly. Since siding is not watertight, there are many ways that water can find its way inside, where serious water damage can begin to develop. Siding contracts and expands, depending on temperature. This will allow water to make its way through the gaps around windows and doors that are left unsealed. Moisture can also make its way through overlapping ends of the siding. Our siding installation experts know that the only way to prevent this type of damage is by installing a water-resistant barrier system under the siding.
This system is comprised of a variety of materials that are designed to protect against moisture intrusion. The type of barrier that’s used will depend on the type of siding that’s installed. Since this step is a crucial one in the installation process, you need to go with a company that has years of experience working with these materials and a team of knowledgeable contractors that know how to safeguard your home against water damage and mold and mildew growth. As one of the leading siding companies in the state, we will discuss all of your options in terms of the type of siding used and stress the importance of installing a water-resistant barrier system beneath the siding. This can significantly lengthen the life of your siding while protecting your home against damage.

There’s no question that hail can not only damage a roof, but it can have a major impact on the exterior of your home in general. Using siding that’s rated to withstand a severe hailstorm will mean you won’t have to deal with siding replacement after a particularly rough storm. Certain types of lower-priced siding are prone to cracking and splitting as a result of a hailstorm. We’ll help you choose siding that has a high hail rating, so you can rest assured that your new siding is designed to withstand hail damage and will remain looking good and free from splits and cracks after a major storm.
