Vinyl Siding Towson, MD

Although vinyl siding has been around long enough to make a good name for itself, people still have a few questions about it. Vinyl siding is one of the most preferred siding materials in America. Find out why that is as we answer some of the most common questions about vinyl siding for your home in Towson.

What makes vinyl siding a better choice for my home?

Vinyl siding is the most popular siding choice in the U.S. It is more popular than fiber cement siding or wood siding. This popularity is due to the many amazing qualities of vinyl siding. It is versatile and can mimic the look of other siding options without the problems that come with other choices. Vinyl siding is a low-maintenance choice. Your vinyl siding might have to be washed from time to time but other than that, there is no maintenance.

Probably one of the most influential reasons that vinyl siding is the top choice is its affordability. Vinyl siding installation in Towson will be cheaper than either wood or fiber cement siding.

Will vinyl siding withstand storms well?

Your home in Maryland should be built to last the intense winters and raging spring storms.  Vinyl siding is durable enough to withstand winds of 140 mph. Throughout the summer sun and heat and the ice and snow of winter, vinyl siding won't fade or need to be repainted either.

Are there a variety of colors to choose from?

Even a decade ago, the choices of vinyl siding colors were limited to a handful. Today, there are so many choices that the names of the colors have even gotten interesting. How do Canyon Drift and Harbor Blue sound?

Does vinyl siding look cheap?

Homeowners who are investing in vinyl siding in Towson want their homes to look elegant and sophisticated. The vinyl siding of the past had a very typical look and everyone knew if your home was covered in vinyl siding. It was not considered an especially desirable look to achieve.

Today's vinyl siding can look like any other siding texture. Even older homes that are being restored to their original beauty boast new vinyl siding. There are cedar shakes, beaded, board and batten, clapboard, traditional wood planks, and even log styles of vinyl siding.

Does vinyl siding need to be installed by professionals?

There are many reasons why you will want to have your vinyl siding professionally installed. As it heats and cools, vinyl siding will contract and expand as much as ¾ of an inch. Professionals know how to compensate for this and make allowances for it during installation. Another reason that you will want your vinyl siding installed by experts is that it will be covered by a warranty that you won't have if you attempt to do it yourself and something goes wrong.
