Siding Glastonbury, CT

Vinyl siding siding currently is the most popular exterior cladding material in use in the United States, accounting for over one-third of the exterior cladding projects undertaken annually. Given proper attention to detail, and using the right tools, a home-owner could install vinyl siding, although it is be far easier when it is at least a two-person job.

Vinyl siding doesn’t fall into the same category as the Model-T Ford, one color only. Nor is you choice limited to white , plus a few pastel colors. There is an entire palette of colors available for you to choose from. Just be aware that some colors are better suited to some climates than are others, but you will still have a very large selection of colors to choose from for homes in the Glastonbury area.

Are there any negatives associated with vinyl siding? Cost certainly isn’t one of them, nor is speed of installation when done by a professional crew. Two negatives you might hear on occasion are:

• Vinyl siding doesn’t look as good as I had anticipated.

• I find that Vinyl siding leaks a lot.

These statements can be true. Especially if the siding was installed as a do-it-yourself project, where the various components were not made to fit snugly together as they are designed to do. When installing vinyl siding there is a lot more detail involved than just flitting one piece of siding into an adjacent piece. There are soffit panels, fascia, and corner boards to install, window and door frames to take into account. There will be trim pieces to cover the panel edges, wrap to keep moisture from collecting, possibly some flashing to install, and on and on. When everything fits together as it should, it’s a job well done. If the work is not done right, there can be problems. Installing your own vinyl siding can be a challenging task, but it can also be a very rewarding one when done right.

While it’s possible to save some labor expenses by installing vinyl siding yourself, a certified installation team can do the job quickly, and you’ll find the labor costs are significantly less than if you were having other types of siding installed. Also, by having certified installers do the work, the end product should be every bit as beautiful as the advertisements indicate.
