Chicago’s Vinyl Siding Experts
Whether building a new home or renovating an existing one, many homeowners turn to vinyl as the clear choice for their exterior siding. Introduced in the 1960’s, vinyl siding has continued to gain popularity within the housing market. Today, vinyl is the #1 choice for exterior cladding in the U.S. Few materials can compete with vinyl’s low cost and durability. It is also very easy to maintain and resistant from rotting or flaking. With an abundance of profiles, exposures, and colors to choose from, homeowners are sure to find an option right for their unique home.
When selecting your vinyl, it is important to take into consideration the quality of the material. Not all vinyl siding is created equal. Both thickness and nail hem play a factor in the overall strength of the product. With standard vinyl siding coming in thicknesses from .040” up to .046”, thinner sidings will often offer less protection from both wind and impact (trees, ladders, etc.). In addition to thickness, nail hem also can add to a siding’s strength and resilience. In fact, thinner sidings with a higher quality nail hem actually have superior wind and impact ratings.
