As homeowners look over all their exterior siding options, materials as varied as fiber cement and traditional wood are all viable selections. A Raleigh siding professional can help residents narrow down their preferable material choice based on appearance, cost and other protective features. Understanding modern vinyl as a quality siding material gives homeowners another choice at a strong exterior with beautiful curb appeal for years to come.

Older vinyl materials used to have colors that would fade over time. Today's materials take the sun's ultraviolet radiation into consideration with specialized coatings. The manufacturer creates the colorful siding while adding the coating as a final layer. Even in the sunniest areas, properties with vinyl siding should see decades of colorfast beauty. If residents want to change the color, the surface is paintable for options that are even more aesthetically pleasing.

Homeowners could be looking for more than just a smooth vinyl surface. Contractors can go over all the texture options. With a gritty surface, for instance, the siding adds more depth to the home's exterior. It can even take on the appearance of wood if desired. Vinyl is typically made of polyvinyl chloride or PVC, so it can be molded into nearly any shape.

Vinyl's characteristics make it a strong barrier to property water damage.

However, residents must choose a reputable contractor to make water-resistance possible across the entire wall surface area. A proper installation stops any driving rain, sleet or snow from infiltrating the wall space. Questionable installers may leave gaps between vinyl sections, allowing moisture to consistently creep into the space and causing slow decay damage.

Vinyl is so versatile that the siding can be extended into accenting pieces across the entire property. Consider vinyl additions on pathway or porch railings to visually connect the rest of the home with the exterior wall. As a strong curb appeal accent, vinyl creates a cohesive look for homeowners and visitors alike. It could pull in potential buyers when the residents are ready for a sale. Discuss accenting options with the contractor while walking around the property. They can advise where the material looks good and bad based on their experience and design background.

Be careful about choosing the right material and contractor to match the installation. Experienced contractors apply their installation knowledge to several materials while using logic to avoid improper attachment processes, such as face nailing. A reliable contractor, with strong word-of-mouth reviews, can transform an average home into a unique space with solid property value.
