Benefits of Vinyl Siding Replacement

We spend so much time in and around our homes. So naturally we want our home to look its best at all times. New siding can offer that backdrop for all the family gatherings and special memories.

Vinyl siding is known for its exceptional durability, making it highly resistant to cracking, warping, and rotting. It can withstand various weather conditions, including heavy winds, moisture, and UV rays, ensuring long-lasting performance and reducing the need for frequent repairs or maintenance.
Improved Energy Efficiency
New vinyl siding often comes with additional insulation options, such as foam backing or insulated panels. This extra layer of insulation helps to improve your home’s energy efficiency by reducing heat transfer and maintaining a more consistent indoor temperature. This, in turn, can lead to lower heating and cooling costs.
Reduced Maintenance Requirements
Vinyl siding is virtually maintenance-free, requiring minimal upkeep compared to other siding materials. Unlike wood siding that needs periodic painting or staining, vinyl siding retains its color and finish over time without the need for repainting. It is also resistant to pests, such as termites, and does not rot or decay.
Enhanced Curb Appeal
Installing new vinyl siding can dramatically enhance the curb appeal of your home. With a wide variety of colors, textures, and styles available, vinyl siding offers versatility and flexibility to achieve the desired aesthetic for your home. Whether you prefer a classic look or a modern design, vinyl siding can transform the appearance of your property and increase its value.
Siding Replacement ROI for the Quad Cities
According to the latest “Cost vs Value Report” for homes in the midwestern part of the United States, homeowners can expect to recoup as much as 70% of the cost of new vinyl siding. That means that in addition to the benefits mentioned previously on this page, you can expect to get your money back when you sell your home. That’s comforting. Your home’s exterior makes a statement. Plus your siding plays a critical role in protecting your investment. We have never had a customer say, “I sure wish I wouldn’t have installed this new siding. I like the old better.” That’s because the transformation is noticeable to everyone. All of your guests, all of your neighbors, and all of the people driving by. It matters.

While there are many different types of siding products for your home we install vinyl siding exclusively. Our reasoning is simple. Vinyl is weather-resistant and maintenance-free. Other than cleaning the vinyl siding on occasion, you don’t have to do anything. Wood siding has to be painted or treated and is susceptible to bugs and other animals. Concrete siding (cement board) has to be painted, treated, and caulked every five years or so. The labor to install wood or cement boards is significantly higher too. So instead of having to charge our customers more for something that isn’t going to be maintenance-free and last forever, we only offer vinyl siding products.
Vinyl siding offers so many benefits over paint. For one, with paint, you will have to repaint every five to seven years. Paint doesn’t last when exposed to the elements. Vinyl siding does. Vinyl siding is mostly maintenance-free. Other than needing to be cleaned thoroughly every few years, vinyl siding offers unparalleled protection.
Insects don’t like to eat Vinyl siding products. Plus the new vinyl siding products are increasingly made from recycled materials and offer better protection from the elements long term. You can even install a product called insulated Vinyl siding that adds a level of insulation to your home that is helpful in climates that fluctuate by more than fifty degrees seasonally. Painted wood can simply not compete on any level.
We cover the existing soffits and fascia with PVC or Aluminum wrap products. So rather than replace what you have, we cap it so it becomes maintenance-free. You will not have to paint it again and the original painted wood material is protected from the elements moving forward
Today’s vinyl siding products can mimic wood, insulate your home, and even stand up to tornado-force winds, making them a highly desirable exterior cladding option.
We have all of the latest color options including the darker colors that are so popular today. Our products also offer fade protection so you don’t have to worry about your siding changing colors due to sun exposure. There are more color options available today than ever before and we keep getting more as tastes and trends change with time.
How Vinyl Siding Thickness is Measured
The Vinyl Siding Institute (VSI) utilizes a measurement called “mils” to assess vinyl siding thickness. One mil represents 1/1000th of an inch. To determine the thickness of vinyl siding, VSI measures the distance from the outer surface to the inner surface of the siding panel. This measurement is taken in mils and is a crucial factor in evaluating the quality and durability of the siding.
VSI sets certain standards for vinyl siding thickness. For example, the minimum thickness for certified vinyl siding is typically around 0.035 inches or 35 mils. Thicker siding panels, such as 0.040 inches or 40 mils, are considered more robust and may offer better resistance to impacts and weather conditions.
By adhering to VSI’s measurement standards, manufacturers and contractors can ensure that the vinyl siding used in home improvement projects meets specific thickness criteria, providing homeowners with high-quality, durable siding options.
Mainstream Home Improvement will always offer you the thickest most durable vinyl siding you can get for the climate here in the Quad Cities of Iowa and Illinois.
