As one of the best and most experienced companies in the area, the Bay Area Siding Company understands that you want siding that's affordable, easy to care for and keeps your home looking its best.
That's why before you decide on Bay Area vinyl siding installation, it's a good idea to carefully consider the pros and cons and how working with a certified, licensed and insured vinyl siding installer can help.
There are many benefits to choosing vinyl siding, including:
Vinyl siding is incredibly enticing for homeowners for several reasons. Never having to paint again? It sounds like a dream come true. Plus, vinyl siding, unlike pine board or cedar, there's no need for ongoing maintenance, since vinyl siding will not rot or warp over time when exposed to the elements. If you tend to think of vinyl siding as that thick clunky material from the 1970s, you're in for a treat. Today's vinyl siding has come a long way from its humble beginnings.
These days, vinyl siding can be manufactured to look like a variety of natural materials including wood and stone. For these reasons, it has become one of the most popular types of home exterior siding in the Bay Area and across the nation.
They say that vinyl siding Bay Area is permanent and it's true, it does last a long time. Manufacturers often use titanium dioxide to help further block UV rays that can deteriorate the siding. You can purchase different "grades'' of vinyl siding, both what's called "virgin" as well as recycled vinyl siding. There are different thicknesses available. And although vinyl siding is well-known for its durability, it does require some maintenance over time.
When it comes to vinyl siding installation in the Bay Area, we want you to see the full picture, which is why we want to make you aware of some of the drawbacks of having vinyl siding installed. In some cases, depending on the type of vinyl siding you choose, it may be viewed as cheap by potential home buyers. In addition, the way it is installed matters, since it needs to be hung loosely and allowed to expand because of differences in temperature.
While there's nothing stopping you from installing vinyl siding on your home, we recommend in this case that you work with a trusted Bay Area vinyl siding installer like the Bay Area Siding Company. The reason is because if it is installed incorrectly, vinyl siding can let in moisture, which can in turn become a haven for insect infestation, not to mention mold buildup. If it's installed too tightly, it won't be able to expand and this can cause it to warp and bow. If it's hung too loosely, wind can get under it and lift it out.
You'll be glad to know that new advances in vinyl siding technology to help make it stronger and less brittle have been perfected over the years. Being pulled by a lawnmower will cause vinyl siding to break, and likewise become punctured if there is windblown debris in the area. It's not perfectly impervious to damage, but it is hardy and durable!
Oftentimes, homeowners contact us asking about how recyclable vinyl siding is. Although the process that is used to make the PVC in vinyl siding is toxic, it is also a very efficient process which leads to less waste. In addition, PVC is a thermoplastic, so the material itself can be made into different shapes when heat is applied to it. So it can be reused, however this depends on what other materials surround it. For example, it cannot be burned and it cannot be stored in a landfill because the chemicals will contaminate the soil as they deteriorate. Vinyl siding recycling is not very widespread, so it's worth keeping this in mind if you decide to change your mind and go for a more eco-friendly option one day.
If you're looking for an economic option for siding on your home that's both durable and long-lasting, it's hard to beat the structural appeal of vinyl. Add to that the fact that it can be made to look like nearly any other type of material out there, including lifelike natural materials, and it's easy to see what makes vinyl siding so attractive in the Bay Area. It's also highly resistant to all types of weather and the harsh UV rays of the Bay Area.
