Not Your Father's Vinyl Siding

Since the 1950’s home owners looked to vinyl siding as their salvation from maintenance. In the beginning it was perceived as a way to save a little dough as opposed to wood siding. No wonder…early vinyl siding had all the cache of Uncle Bert’s toupee, but these days it’s no contest. Vinyl has evolved into a coveted cover for the exterior of homes.


Low maintenance is fantastic! No more scraping, painting, or replacing rotted wood – a headache for home owners. Weekend warriors trying to save a buck or paying out for a contractor to maintain the wood’s finicky finish. Wood siding is a vulnerable material; insects, mold, and the dreaded leaks make vinyl a no brainer. Today’s siding can be hosed off once or twice a year…not a daunting task.

Today’s vinyl siding has come a long way since its introduction during the Eisenhower administration. Certainteed has led the field with advancements in production. Materials are state of the art, wood grain textures, and durability. Colors run the spectrum from traditional to the latest must have hues. Not only that, the fade factor is nearly a memory. Colors maintain their vibrancy for years after installation.

The installation has evolved as well. Clever systems allow easy installation over existing siding. It’s truly the best way to keep your home in great condition over the years. Keeping up with the Joneses has never been easier.

Not just siding – you can accessorize! Trim, vents, posts, shutters, gutters, gables and corbels can make your house stand out in the neighborhood. Trims for any taste to customize your home to your liking.

These accents will enable you to match your vinyl siding, creating a picture perfect exterior siding not only looks great, but shields your home from just about everything that Mother Nature throws at it!
