Vinyl Siding Replacement
Vinyl replacement siding is a popular choice for many homeowners because it offers a range of benefits. Some of the key benefits of vinyl siding include:
Durability: Vinyl replacement siding is designed to withstand extreme temperatures and weather conditions, so it won’t crack or warp like some other siding materials can. This makes it a long-lasting and durable choice for your home.
Low maintenance: Unlike wood replacement siding, which requires regular painting and staining, vinyl replacement siding never needs to be painted or sealed. It will maintain its beautiful finish for years to come with just a simple wash every now and then.
Resistance to pests: Vinyl replacement siding is resistant to pests like termites, which can cause serious damage to your home. This can help protect your home from potential damage and the need for costly repairs.
Cost-effective: Vinyl replacement siding may be less expensive upfront than some other siding materials, like wood or composite. And because it’s low maintenance, it can save you money on painting and staining over the lifetime of the siding.
Variety of styles and colors: Vinyl replacement siding is available in a wide range of styles and colors, so you can find the perfect look for your home. And because it’s easy to install, it can be customized to suit your home’s unique shape and style.
Energy-efficient options: Some vinyl siding options, like insulated siding, can provide an extra layer of insulation for your home. This can help reduce heat loss in the winter and keep your home cooler in the summer, which can save you money on your energy bills.
Vinyl siding is a durable, low-maintenance, and cost-effective choice for your home. It’s available in a range of styles and colors, and it can be customized to suit your home’s unique shape and style. And with energy-efficient options available, it can help save you money on your energy bills. Some of the best vinyl siding options available are Alside’s Charter Oak siding and Alside’s Prodigy siding.
Charter Oak Vinyl Replacement Siding
Charter Oak siding is made from a durable vinyl material that’s designed to withstand extreme temperatures and weather conditions. It won’t crack or warp like some other siding materials can, and can be supplemented with fanfold insulation. It is available in both double 4-inch straight panels and double 4 1/2 -inch dutch lap panels. Most siding companies will also offer a range of decorative accents and trim pieces that match the color options available for Charter Oak siding, so you can add a personalized touch to your home.
Professional siding companies with experienced installers are recommended to install your replacement siding to make sure your Charter Oak siding is installed correctly and looks great. A professional siding company that is partnered with Alside will be able to offer a limited lifetime warranty on both the product and the installation, so you can have peace of mind knowing that your replacement siding is protected. The warranty covers things like fading, cracking, and other defects, and it’s transferable to the next owner of your home.
Prodigy Vinyl Replacement Siding
Prodigy replacement siding is a high-quality vinyl siding that combines durability, beauty, and energy efficiency. It boasts some of the thickest insulation on the market for vinyl sidings – up to 1 and 1/2-inches. Because of its large profile and completely foam filled backerboard insulation, it won’t crack or warp and will maintain its beautiful appearance for years to come.
Prodigy replacement siding is available in both double 6-inch straight and double 5-inch dutch-lap profiles. Prodigy siding also comes with a wide range of decorative accents and trim pieces, so you can add a personalized touch to your home to match its siding colors. In terms of insulation, Prodigy replacement siding is available with a foam backing that provides an extra layer of insulation for your home. This will help reduce heat loss in the winter and keep your home cooler in the summer, which will save you money on your energy bills. And because the foam backing is hidden behind the siding, it won’t affect the appearance of your home.
Prodigy replacement siding comes in larger profiles than Charter Oak siding. This is because it’s designed to mimic the look of traditional cedar siding panels, which are often wider than standard lap siding. Our Prodigy siding is available in double 4-inch and double 6-inch widths, which are wider than the single 4-inch and 6-inch widths available for our Charter Oak siding. This larger profile can create a more dramatic and distinctive look for your home. And because Prodigy siding is made from a durable vinyl material, it offers all the benefits of vinyl siding, like low maintenance and resistance to extreme temperatures and weather conditions, while still providing the natural beauty of cedar siding.
Overall, Prodigy siding is a durable, attractive, and energy-efficient choice for your home. It’s low maintenance, so you won’t have to worry about painting or sealing it. And if installed by a professional siding installer like those at Odyssey Siding, it’s backed by a limited lifetime warranty – so you can have peace of mind knowing that your siding is protected.
Ascend Composite-Clad Siding
The three main reasons that our customers engage in siding replacement projects are aesthetics, energy efficiency, and the desire to make the exterior of their homes maintenance-free. Both vinyl replacement siding and wood replacement siding are able to provide strong performance in regard to energy efficiency. Wood siding is known for its ability to give unparalleled beauty to the exterior of a home; however, it falls short in the maintenance-free category. Wood replacement siding also tends to be the highest in cost. Replacement vinyl siding, on the other hand, gives a true maintenance-free home exterior that is quite affordable compared to wood replacement siding but unable to match the beauty and elegance of wood siding.
To bridge this gap, Alside building products has partnered with reputable siding companies to provide their award-winning Ascend composite siding to homeowners. Ascend siding is made from a proprietary composite material that gives the best of both worlds – the maintenance-free properties of vinyl replacement siding with the natural beauty and elegance of wood replacement siding. While vinyl replacement siding may become brittle and crack over time, Ascend siding is designed to withstand extreme temperatures. Ascend siding is also maintenance-free – unlike replacement wood siding, which requires regular painting and staining. Ascend composite siding will maintain its beautiful finish for years to come, with only a wash every now and then.
Finally, Ascend siding bridges the gap in cost between standard vinyl replacement siding and wood replacement siding. Ascend composite siding is only slightly more expensive than the large profile fullback Prodigy replacement siding while substantially less costly than wood replacement siding. Ascend composite siding comes in a variety of colors and styles to choose from, so you can find the perfect look for your home. The last thing you need to enjoy beautiful Ascend siding on your home is a professional siding company to install it!
