What makes a dream home a dream home? There are certain design elements that embody classic All-American style, including clean simple lines, an inviting ambiance, a well-built porch or deck, and increasingly, vinyl siding.
What makes vinyl siding so popular for upscale homes? As Billerica siding contractors we can tell you that there are three reasons we hear a lot from homeowners: the color & style; the durability, and the low maintenance.
Let’s talk about color and style. Americans are highly individualistic, especially when it comes to home design. Vinyl siding provides a very wide range of color options – far beyond the white, beige, and charcoal you may think of as the default. When you choose a high quality vinyl siding, you can rest assured whatever color you pick – from a radiant red to sunshine yellow, forest green to deep ocean blue – will remain strong and vibrant for decades.
The next concern – durability. If you’re in Billerica, you experience four full seasons of weather. Winters are cold and snowy; summers can be breathtakingly hot. Rain in the spring and fierce winds in the fall are par for the course. These extreme conditions can damage a home’s exterior. The best vinyl sidings are formulated to endure all kinds of weather without warping, splitting, twisting, or cracking.
Finally – low maintenance. As siding contractors, we try to help people choose the exterior that best fits their desired lifestyle. If you want to spend lots of money and time having your house painted every couple of years, we’ll steer you toward wooden clapboard siding. But if you want a low-maintenance, stress-free way to keep your house looking great, you’ll opt for vinyl siding which only needs a pressure washing every so often to look fantastic.
Not sure if vinyl siding is right for your home? Here in the North Shore, it’s not uncommon to see homes with mixed exteriors, including vinyl siding with brick, and vinyl siding with shingles.
