    What is Vinyl Siding?

    Vinyl siding is a type of exterior cladding material used to cover and protect the exterior walls of residential and commercial buildings. It is made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC), a synthetic plastic material. Vinyl siding has become a popular choice for homeowners due to its affordability, low maintenance requirements, and a variety of color options. Elite Home Exteriors NW Specializes in Vinyl Siding Replacement with James Hardie Siding.

    Here are some key characteristics and features of vinyl siding:

    1. Material Composition: Vinyl siding is primarily composed of PVC, which is a not durable but is a lightweight material. It is known for its resistance to moisture, insects, and rot but can often allow water intrusion behind the siding causing serious rot on the subwall and cause tens of thousands of dollars of damage.

    2. Color and Style Options: Vinyl siding comes in a small range of colors and styles, allowing homeowners to choose a look that complements their preferences and the architectural style of their homes. 

    3. CHEAP PRODUCT: Vinyl Siding doesn’t need to be painted but it is a weak and fragile product. Vinyl can easily crack in cold weather, rock chip from a mower.

    4. Low Maintenance: Vinyl siding is relatively low maintenance compared to some other siding materials. It does not require painting, and cleaning can be done with simple tools like a hose and soapy water.

    5. Installation: Vinyl siding is lightweight and flexible, which can contribute to improper installation. This can major problems and require a full siding replacement.

    6. Insulation Options: Some vinyl siding products come with insulation backing to improve energy efficiency and provide additional thermal insulation for homes.

    While vinyl siding has very few advantages, it’s important to be aware of potential drawbacks. It may not be as resistant to impact as some other materials, and extreme weather conditions can affect its longevity. Additionally, some critics express environmental concerns related to the production and disposal of PVC.

    As with any home improvement decision, it’s recommended to carefully consider the specific needs of your home, your budget, and your aesthetic preferences before choosing siding materials.

    What are common problems with Vinyl Siding? What is a better siding option?

    Unveiling the Downsides of Vinyl Siding: Are you considering siding options for your home? It’s crucial to make an informed decision that not only enhances the aesthetics but also ensures long-term durability. Explore the drawbacks of vinyl siding.

    The Vinyl Siding Dilemma

    Limited Durability

    Vinyl siding may seem cost-effective initially, but its durability falls short over time. It is susceptible to cracks, fading, and warping, especially in extreme weather conditions.

    Maintenance Headaches

    Homeowners often underestimate the maintenance required for vinyl siding. It can become discolored, and cleaning it may involve costly and time-consuming efforts.

    Environmental Concerns

    Vinyl siding is not an eco-friendly choice. It is manufactured using PVC, a material associated with environmental concerns such as the release of toxic substances during production and disposal.

    Aesthetic Limitations

    While vinyl siding offers a range of colors, it lacks the authentic look and texture that many homeowners desire. It can sometimes give off a plastic-like appearance, diminishing the overall curb appeal of your home.

    My home has a fairly complex exterior, and we were looking to re-side the home as we were dealing with constant issues of water intrusion. I was searching the greater Portland/Vancouver area for Siding Contractors for Hardie Siding, as we really just wanted something that would hold up against the elements and protect us in the case of any nearby fires (we’re close to some woods). After meeting Ian from Elite Home Exteriors, we decided to go with him and we couldn’t have been happier that we decided to go with him as out Siding Contractor. We had additional problems from the water damage too, and the folks he recommended were also top notch. Ian and team are a James Hardie Elite Preferred Siding Contractor, which means basically that he’s passed the highest certification for installing James Hardie siding products. I would work with him again, but based on his fit and finish, I probably won’t need to! Thanks Ian!

    Working with Ian and his company was an absolute pleasure. I currently own 2 homes and have had 3 previous houses, so I’ve had experience with many contractors over the last 20 years and most are not good. My husband and I had a water intrusion issue (undisclosed to us during a house purchase) that we subsequently discovered for ourselves 6 months later in the rainy season. After meeting with many contactors to figure out how to execute the repair, we decided that their prices were outrageous even for just a patch job and we decided to do the right thing and replace all the wood siding with Hardie plank. My husband found Ian online, and we met with him. He is excellent at communication, through emails/text and/or phone calls. He was always pleasant to meet with and didn’t talk to me as if I was a dumb homeowner, which happens quite a bit in this industry. He was happy to answer all my questions and work with us on a documented design for adding architectural details so there was no questions on how the job would look. He and his crew were always punctual and professional. They finished the job ahead of schedule and did everything promised. Honestly, the water intrusion situation was very stressful, but Ian made it a pleasure to get resolved. I am so happy that we went with him and have had excellent results. My high-strung HOA was even happy about his work and gave us a compliment. I wholeheartedly recommend him, and I would be happy to talk to anyone wanting a reference about our pleasant experience. It isn’t every day that such a huge job is completed with such ease and professionalism. I 100% recommend working with Ian and Elite Home Exteriors NW – you won’t be disappointed!

    The South wall of the house had rot and cut siding from a previous connected wood deck. Ian was a pleasure to work with and a consummate professional from start to finish. He answered detailed questions, gave me several options to fit within my budget. Ian communicated with me throughout the process, and was accommodating when I requested more detail, or a change during planning phase. His crew shows up on schedule, were friendly and courteous of my property, and cleaned up thoroughly before leaving. The job was completed quickly and within budget. The new siding and paint is an asset to this house and exceeds my expectations. I enjoyed working with Ian, and would recommend Elite Home Exteriors NW to anyone considering a siding update for their home.

    Glad I hired Ian and his team to replace siding on the south-facing side of my house. Communication with Ian throughout project was as good as any contractor I've worked with. The work was done well, went smoothly, just what you want. Also glad to see them not show up in expensive vehicle wrapped graphics, etc that the customer pays for. I'll have more siding to do on my house and will hire them again.
