If you’re considering new siding for your home and are making the switch to vinyl siding, you may have many questions. We’ve installed new vinyl siding on homes throughout the greater Winston-Salem area and answered questions from homeowners just like you. Here are some of the most common questions we’ve been asked.
How Long Will My New Vinyl Siding Last?
Chances are good that your new vinyl siding will last longer than you own your home, unless it’s damaged by a storm. We expect the new siding we install today to last between 20 and 40 years.
I Also Want Better Energy Efficiency, Will Vinyl Siding Help?
There’s no type of new siding that alone will make your home more energy efficient. Some styles do have a higher R value than others. However, no matter what you choose, we will install an insulative wrap that will increase the comfort of your home year-round.
How Much Maintenance Does Vinyl Siding Require?
Vinyl siding is one of the lower maintenance products you can choose for your home’s exterior. It never needs painting or staining. You’ll simply want to use a pressure washer occasionally when your home’s exterior becomes dirty.
Does It Come in Different Styles?
Yes! There are countless options for vinyl siding and today’s products look more like real wood than ever before. We can completely transform the look with new siding. We offer countless color and style combinations in addition to traditional horizontal siding. Some options include Dutch lap, vertical, board and batten, shake, all of which can be used alone or in combination with one another to create a truly stunning home.
Why Would New Siding be Better Than Just Painting Mine?
There are many benefits to new vinyl siding. One of the biggest is that you’ll never need to paint it again. If you have old wood siding, chances are good you’re repainting every 3 – 5 years which really ads up, especially if you plan on staying in your home. It’s also pest resistant as bugs aren’t interested in it. Your new siding will provide better overall protection against the elements than older siding. Plus, the increased energy efficiency can save you in your heating and cooling costs.
