How is your vinyl siding holding up this summer? If it’s cracking, warping or blistering, it may be time to call a siding contractor in West Jordan. Capitol Exteriors provides siding repair and installation for homes throughout the area.
Vinyl is a low-cost, low-maintenance, versatile material. Over the years, it has come to be a popular choice for siding, fencing, rain gutters, lawn furniture and hundreds of other household uses. It’s a favorite because it’s cheap, wipes clean easily and requires little maintenance.
However, vinyl can be less durable than some other, more expensive materials.
Vinyl & Utah Heat
By most estimates, vinyl siding lasts between 20 and 40 years. Vinyl siding that’s thicker will last longer and look better than thinner varieties. While the vinyl siding made today no longer melts in the hot Utah sun, the relentless heat can still put stress on the siding, possibly causing it to buckle or warp prematurely depending on its quality and the skill of the installers.
Vinyl can also crack or break if it suffers any type of blow, such as from a tree limb, baseball or other item knocking against it. Vinyl siding that has become brittle succumbs to these blows more frequently, but cracks and dents are usually quickly and easily repaired.
Depending on the type of vinyl your siding contractor used, your vinyl may also fade over time in the sun if you chose a dark color.
Vinyl Siding Repair in West Jordan
If your vinyl siding is not looking its best, call the team at Capitol Exteriors. We’ll come out to take a look and assess the situation.
You may only need siding repair at your West Jordan home. However, if your siding is old and beginning to break down in several areas, we may recommend installing new siding.
Capitol Exteriors is a vinyl siding installer, but we also install Hardie board and wood shakes — two popular materials favored by West Jordan homeowners who want more of an upscale look for their homes’ exterior.
Wood shakes are beautiful and can be painted or stained any color. Wood is a natural material and as such must be treated periodically to avoid rot and other problems.
Hardie board is made of fiber cement. It is almost indistinguishable from real wood to the untrained eye, but it is heavier, more durable and requires almost no maintenance. Hardie board comes in a variety of colors and requires painting only every 10 to 20 years.
Capitol Exteriors also provides siding repair services for homes with wood shakes and Hardie board, although both choices are extremely durable.
