Question: 
How does vinyl siding compare with other siding materials?
Answer: 

In a way, it's almost no contest. When compared to wood, brick, stone, stucco, and metal siding on the basis of initial cost, maintenance costs, appearance, durability and value, vinyl siding is clearly superior.
We offer a broad range of vinyl siding products, so you can choose one that's easily affordable. Whichever you choose, you can expect the highest quality and workmanship with lasting beauty and most vinyl siding never needs painting or staining. It does not chip, peel, dent or rot, so you can forget costly repairs. Just rinse occasionally with a garden hose.
In addition, vinyl sidings are backed by a strong warranty. And because vinyl is the preferred siding for more and more homeowners, it retains most of its installed cost. Moreover, premium vinyl siding provides all the beauty of expensive wood sidings with your choice of smooth or grained surfaces; rich, low-gloss colors; and a variety of classic siding profiles.

Question: 
Isn't it less costly to just repaint my home?
Answer: 

If you plan to move within the next three years, the answer is probably "yes". But if you plan to stay in your home longer than that, the calculations begin to heavily favor vinyl siding.
Of course, if your home has special problems - for example, warped clapboards that have to be replaced or lead-based paint that has to be scraped and sanded off - the cost of painting can become truly staggering.
Compare the ongoing costs of painting every three to five years to a one-time investment in new vinyl siding. For most homeowners the conclusion is obvious - vinyl siding is by far the better long-term value.

Question: 
Is vinyl siding really as durable as everyone says?
Answer: 

Absolutely. The correct technical name for the material used in vinyl siding is polyvinyl chloride. It's a strong, durable, proven material that has earned a solid reputation for its beauty and permanence. It's used in automotive applications, medical devices, defense weapons, appliances, floor coverings and of course, home construction.
It's ideal as an exterior material because vinyl siding doesn't rot, crack, dent or warp. Plus it never peels or blisters. And because the color goes completely through most siding, it never has to be scraped, sanded or painted.

Question: 
Is one season better than another to have my new siding installed?
Answer: 

Not really. You can have your vinyl siding installed in any season, as your schedule and budget allows. But keep in mind that some contractors are more available during the off-seasons. Regardless of when you have your new siding installed, you'll enjoy the immediate benefits of improved appearance, as well as the long-term benefits of durability and easy maintenance.

Question: 
How do I maintain my vinyl siding?
Answer: 

It's simple. There really is no maintenance, just occasional cleaning.
Ordinarily, the cleaning action of a rainfall will be adequate to wash your vinyl siding. However, vinyl siding and soffit should be washed periodically by hosing with a garden hose and clear water, particularly in those areas not exposed directly to rain.

Question: 
How does the cost of vinyl compare to the added resale value it provides?
Answer: 

In terms of adding resale value to your home, vinyl siding is one of the best investments you can make. Exterior improvements such as the installation of vinyl siding make a home more attractive on the market and will cause the house to sell quicker for more money.
Another point to keep in mind: if, like many homeowners, you add insulation to an older home at the same time you're having vinyl siding installed, you add even greater value and market appeal to your home.

Question: 
How do I choose a reputable contractor?
Answer: 

First and foremost, make an informed decision. Require references and look at previous work. Word-of-mouth recommendations from neighbors or friends who have recently re-sided their houses are an excellent start. You may also want to ask about liability insurance, customer satisfaction policies and professional credentials. Choose someone you trust, someone qualified to perform the task required, and someone you can work with comfortably.
