Should Twin Cities Homeowners Consider Vinyl Siding?

If it’s time for new siding on your home, you have a lot of different materials to choose from.  Some are more effective than others in particular climates.  How a siding material will hold up to both severe cold and hot, humid summers is something you definitely need to take into consideration.  Homes here in this area of Minnesota see a wide range of conditions, so the siding you choose should be able to take all Mother Nature throws at us.  One material we think you should consider is vinyl siding.

Why vinyl siding for Minneapolis area homes? There are a number of reasons we can recommend this to homeowners in our area.  If you’re looking for an economical siding product, vinyl tends to cost less to install than other materials such as fiber cement or even genuine wood.  Here are are some other perks:

  • Vinyl siding is virtually maintenance free.  Unlike wood and even engineered wood or fiber cement products, the color is permanent and it will need no repainting.  Older vinyl siding was notorious for fading quickly – especially if it got extended exposure to strong sunlight – but today’s vinyl siding has been engineered to hold its color.  Of course, like just about any siding, vinyl will fade over time, but only a very little bit.  For example, the Craneboard Solid Core siding by Exterior Portfolio (a division of Royal Building Products) has been developed with a proprietary technology called Chromatrix™. This color protection resists fading because in addition to a UV formulation, its mineral pigments include infrared-reflecting characteristics so the vibrant color you get the day it is installed will last for years.

Concerned about environmental impact?  Today’s vinyl siding is surprisingly eco-friendly.  Many products are manufactured using recycled content, and the siding itself (as well as scraps from installation) are recyclable.

And when it comes to moisture resistance, vinyl siding is top-notch.  Our heavy rains, snow, and sleet are no match for the finish.

Plus, vinyl siding is available in a wide array of textures and colors, so you can create a truly custom look for the exterior of your home.  We’ve had many customers choose the insulated CraneBoard vinyl siding we install and then combine it with an accent material like Versetta Stone, a faux panelized masonry product we also install.  Or you can opt for several styles and colors of vinyl siding.

Whatever look you’re after for the exterior of your home, we’d love the opportunity to talk with you more about the benefits of vinyl siding.  We are a licensed Minnesota siding installation contractor, and we serve the greater Minneapolis metro area.
