Excellent value. The popularity of vinyl siding is easy to understand. It’s attractive, inexpensive, and nearly indestructible. Plus, you can select from different styles, colors and textures. But what many people like best is the fact that this siding doesn’t require painting or maintenance.
Of all the different exterior siding choices available today, steel and vinyl siding stand out for the excellent value they offer. Both of these materials shed moisture rather than absorbing it. They won't support mold or mildew and won't be damaged by moisture.
Steel and vinyl siding are designed to look good for many years, retaining their original color despite extreme exposure to the elements. They also deliver this impressive performance without requiring any maintenance. Your installation expense is your only expense.
New siding, along with a well-maintained roof, can increase your home’s value and dramatically improve your home's curb appeal.

Old windows stand out like a sore thumb when a house gets new siding. Older windows also waste energy, compromise interior comfort and require regular painting. For the ultimate exterior makeover, consider having replacement windows installed along with your new siding.
Having new windows and siding installed at the same time will likely cost less than having the two projects done separately, especially if both are completed by the same contractor.
With possible features like low-e, argon-filled insulated glass and advanced vinyl construction, you’ll get maximum energy savings and totally maintenance-free windows.
Steel exterior siding is different from aluminum siding. Steel siding is stronger and more impact-resistant than traditional aluminum siding. Installing steel siding on a new or existing house is probably as close as you’ll come to giving your home a Kevlar® vest.
Fire-proof and far more resistant to denting, bending and crimping than aluminum siding, steel siding has been commonly used on houses since the 1950s. Even before then, it proved its worth on farm and commercial buildings.
Steel siding is a green product, formed from American-made steel rather than from petroleum products. Unlike vinyl siding, steel siding can easily be recycled.
Today’s steel siding comes in a variety of popular colors and profiles. Horizontal and vertically-oriented siding installations are possible. Thanks to a galvanizing treatment and a high-tech, multi-layer finishing process, today’s steel siding carries an unprecedented warranty against fading, corrosion and hail damage.
Made primarily from PVC (polyvinyl chloride) resins, vinyl siding was first manufactured in the 1950s, but the widespread use of this siding material didn’t begin until the late 1970s.
Just like steel siding, vinyl siding offers the advantages of zero maintenance, immunity to mold and moisture damage and plenty of styles and colors to choose from. In better-quality vinyl siding, a wood-grain surface texture can make the product look surprisingly like real wood. Better grades of vinyl siding also tend to be thicker, for improved rigidity and greater impact resistance.
Because PVC expands and contracts significantly in response to temperature changes, it can’t be solidly nailed to wall sheathing. Instead, each course of siding “floats” on slotted nailing fins.
Added value. Installing a continuous layer of rigid foam insulation beneath new exterior siding can stop cold winter drafts and make your home more comfortable and more energy efficient.
If you’re planning to have steel or vinyl siding installed, it’s smart to ask about rigid foam insulation that can be installed beneath or integrally with the siding. Rigid foam insulation is made in different thicknesses and comes in large panels.
This added layer of insulation improves the R-value of your exterior walls, helping your house to retain heat during winter months, and keeping heat out during the hotter months. A layer of rigid foam insulation can be installed beneath the new siding, or you can buy your siding with the foam already attached to each siding course or panel.
The overall impression created by new siding is as much about trim details as it is the siding itself. In a truly professional installation, the corner trim, J-channels, soffit panels, gutters and downspouts all look good together. Compatibly colored caulks and sealants should also be used. Make sure to discuss these details along with your siding choices when planning your new siding installation.
