Professional Vinyl Siding Installation
If you’re considering new Minnesota residential siding, choose a material that is appropriate to your lifestyle and your home’s architectural style. Be aware that some communities have guidelines and by-laws limiting the materials that can be used. Rely on us to help make the right decision.
For beautiful, natural-looking siding that is virtually maintenance-free, look to vinyl siding. We carry a wide variety of siding styles, some reminiscent of cedar shake, others of traditional clapboard — in a striking array of colors to match any taste or budget. Our sidings are engineered to perform even in harsh conditions. What color will enhance the beauty of your home? Given the local climate, how long will the siding last? Is it difficult to maintain? And of course, is it affordable? What else should I know when considering buying Vinyl Siding?
- Generally, thicker is better. The thinner the siding, the more it could sag over time. The thicker the siding, the stiffer and more durable it will tend to be.
- Wind resistance. You want siding that will stay on the house in a storm. Some manufacturers actually warranty their siding in winds over 150 mph. Ask about wind resistance and the warranty.
- Getting attached to siding. Unlike wood, vinyl siding is not attached tightly to the house. It more or less hangs on the side of the house, because it contracts and expands with heat and cold. A double hem mounting area usually provides better attachment than a single hem. If the siding is too tight, it can buck. If it’s too loose, it can be noisy. Vinyl Siding needs to be installed properly.
- Rain resistance. Because it hangs loosely, vinyl siding is less likely to trap moisture. However, there are also areas where water can leak inside. Proper flashings should be installed, as well as house wrap to insure protection on your home.
- Fading factor. More expensive vinyl siding tends to fade less than cheaper siding. Look for UV protection in the description, and ask about how it will stand up to sunlight. Also, if you live in a sunny climate, ask about whether a light color would fade less than a dark color.
Minnesota Window and Siding Co. is proud to install vinyl siding manufactured by the premier companies in the industry such as CertainTeed.
Pick your profile. Some vinyl siding is designed with a deeper profile, or a more pronounced bend in the design of the siding. This generally looks more like wood. So consider the overall look of the Minnesota residential siding, to be sure you get what you want.
