How do I know what’s right for my home?
The world of vinyl siding is vast. But, that’s a good thing. Do not become overwhelmed with the amount of available choices. A reputable home improvement company can inform you about all of your choices and assist you in making the right decision for your home.
What is the difference between 16″ and 25″ siding panels?
The length of the panels used for your home make a big difference in the overall look of the finished project. Using 25″ panels mean less seams and a more fluid look overall.
What are some benefits to vinyl siding?
Vinyl siding has endless options! It has the ability to look like cedar boards or wood shingles and comes in a variety of colors in order to match your home’s appearance and your personal style. Vinyl siding is budget friendly. It’s not only affordable up front, when installing the product, but it’s also nearly maintenance free, which cuts down on future costs as well. Other than a good power washing every few years, there is no need to dote over this product. Vinyl siding is durable and extremely resistant to outdoor elements. This IS the best choice when renovating your home’s exterior.
What brand should I choose?
There are many brands of vinyl siding out there. We recommend Mastic vinyl siding by Mastic Home Exteriors by PlyGem. The options are endless! If you can’t find something you love here, you can’t find it anywhere! Turn your home into a work of art with Mastic.
Helpful Tip: Choose the brand first and then choose your color. Not all brands have the same exact colors, so before you fall in love with a specific color for your home, make sure that brand carries it.
What are some kinds of vinyl siding?
Insulated Siding: Mastic’s Structure Home Insulation System offers excellent insulation and increased energy efficiency for your home. Made of a vinyl siding panel with EPS foam (Expanded Polystyrene), the insulated siding prevents heat from leaving or entering your home, decreasing your utility bills. Manufactured in seven different profiles with longer and flatter surfaces, these panels increase the toughness and sustainability of your home.
Traditional Lap Siding: With ten different profiles of lap siding, there are many different textures, shadow lines and colors that will give your home a distinctive visual depth and meet your high expectations. One of the best options, Mastic Quest Lap siding is stronger than regular vinyl and is less likely to buckle or bend after installation, giving your home a unified and clean look that lasts for years.
Vertical Siding: Most homeowners often forget that siding can be installed vertically as well, so this option gives your home a unique look! Vertical siding is used as an accent feature or to create a design on the side of your home. It is traditionally used to create a powerful effect at entryways, low porch walls, gables and dormer windows. Manufactured in five profiles, vertical siding is available in a wide variety of dimensions and design styles.
Shakes & Shingles: If you want your home to have an old, traditional feel to it, then Mastic’s wood shakes and shingles are your best bet! The Mastic Cedar line provides the look of historical American wood without any of the usual maintenance or repair required in standardized wood shingles. Mastic’s excellent manufacturing process prevents the attraction of moisture and growth of wood rot in their shingles, so you get the beautiful appearance sans any problems!
