Vinyl Siding Installation
One of the most common siding materials for new homes as well as renovations is vinyl siding. It can offer a great look with a myriad of colour choices at an affordable price. Vinyl is weather and UV resistant and is a great choice for an economical exterior finishing solution.
Vinyl siding comes in a wide array of colours and profiles. Everything from a classic grey in a double 4 to a bright barn red in a Dutch lap. The colour and profile choices can drastically affect the overall finished look of your project. This is one reason Jericho Exteriors offers a Full-Color 3D Rendering of your project as a part of our quoting process.

This gives you a degree of control and confidence that few other contractors can offer. You can be assured that once we start putting siding on your house that you will be happy with the finished product.
Vinyl Siding Durability
Vinyl is a great choice for a siding project because it is durable, resistant to UV light, and holds up well to weather and insects. Modern vinyl siding usually has titanium dioxide added to it which helps block the UV rays that used to degrade and fade vinyl siding of the past.
There are different grades of vinyl available and they can vary in price point as well. Premium siding choices come in thicker material and is tougher and more durable when it comes to scratching and impacts. There are also premium colour choices that can help set your house apart from the others on the block.
Proper installation of Vinyl siding also has a big effect on how long it will last. Like most materials, Vinyl siding expands and contracts with changes in temperature. This means that the siding need to be nailed properly and given enough room at the ends to expand in the heat.
With hundreds of homes completed over the last 15 years, you can be sure that our installers are well trained in the most up to date installation practices so your exterior finishing will look great for many years to come.
One of the most common materials for soffits is vinyl. While there are many different premium soffit materials such as Sagiper, or Lux, vinyl soffit is very economical and is very common on many houses.
Maintenance of Vinyl Siding
Unlike wood or similar exterior finishing materials, vinyl does not need to be painted or require any regular maintenance to keep it looking like new. That said, it will still get dirty from exposure to the elements and should be washed regularly with a hose or a light pressure wash.
If you opt to use a pressure washer, be sure to never get the pressure nozzle too close to the surface of the vinyl so that you don’t damage it or peel off any protective coating it may have.
