With an overwhelming number of vinyl siding to choose from it’s crucial to know how to determine the quality of the product. Even though the looks of the siding are important before you decide upon one you ought to take some more features into consideration. Among the most key factors are thickness, material composition and color process. In this article we will be looking into the research made in 2014 by Research Vinyl Siding who as their name suggests take vinyl siding very seriously.
According to their research Thickness is the first statistic to look for when determining quality. It’s easy to verify and very straightforward. The thicker the better. Their scale starts from .35in which they literally called junk. Going a bit further we enter the “economical” choices which start at .38in and end at .42in which is called the “Mid Entry Level”. .44in is their minimum recommendation and anything more than that is called a premium product.
Research Vinyl Siding also suggests that Material Composition is the next factor you should look into. Not all Vinyl is created equally and the composition of the product helps contribute to it’s strength, longevity, UV performance and rigidity. So do a little digging and look into how the product is made.
The next key factor is the coloring process and it’s success or failure is a key indicator or the quality of siding because the best companies have a great warranty to reduce fade. Remember why you are making the investment to replace what’s there and make it look good for a long time. Nothing is worse than finding out what you thought looked good today ends up fading the drab and boring tomorrow.
