Frequently Asked Questions About Vinyl Siding
As vinyl siding experts, we know everything there is to know about vinyl siding. Here are answers to some of our most commonly asked questions.
Q: Can I paint my vinyl siding?
A: Yes, although it’s only necessary if you want to change the color of your home. We only use the highest-quality vinyl siding, which requires little-to-no maintenance, meaning no need to paint. Keep in mind that once it’s been painted, it can’t be undone.
Q: What are some signs I need to replace my vinyl siding?
A: While vinyl siding is a durable siding option, the problems generally arise underneath the siding in the wood of the house. If you notice water damage in areas like clogged gutters, other areas of your home may be compromised as well. Interior water damage is another indicator that the outside of your home is experiencing water damage from the elements. Look for peeling interior paint or mold. Siding that is visibly loose, cracked, warped or buckling also needs to be repaired as soon as possible to prevent water damage.
Q: How long does vinyl siding typically last?
A: It depends. Although vinyl siding does well enduring the elements, nothing lasts forever. In most cases, it can last between 20 to 40 years, with variables impacting this, including the type of siding you choose, how exposed it is to the sun and other elements, and how well it’s been maintained over the years.
Q: How much does replacing my vinyl siding cost?
A: Again, it depends. House size, vinyl siding style, and amount of repairs before getting started all play a part in determining how much the total project will cost. The best way to determine this is to contact us so we can create an estimate for you.
