Keeping your walls safe and clean is what good siding does. Your siding helps your home withstand the weather. It also helps improve its visual look and curb appeal. However, there are some interesting facts you might not know about vinyl siding. As the best vinyl siding company in the state, we know everything there is to know about this product. Here are a few of the more interesting things to note.
Existing or Replacement?
Most homeowners may feel like they need to strip down their home of the previous siding to install the new. While this does happen, the truth is you can install over any existing siding. This way, you can cut costs from tearing off and add an extra layer of protection around your home.
For several years, the colors of vinyl siding have been limited to beige or pastel hues. This meant your home was limited to certain looks, and the doors would stand out in terms of appearance. Recently, however, there has been a trend of infusing richer colors to vinyl.
Weathering the Storm
You might be surprised how strong vinyl can be during a windy day. While it may look easy to pull off, vinyl siding can withstand strong winds. In fact, our own products have been known to stay put even from winds of up to 110 mph. Should they rip or peel off, vinyl siding can be easily re-installed and repaired.
Lastly, people have the misconception that cleaning their siding will require a heavy-duty power washer. However, much like entry doors or walls with some mud, all you need is a regular garden hose and a water-vinegar solution. This way, you can clean it all up without too much fanfare.
