Three Big Reasons to Choose Vinyl Siding

Choose Vinyl Siding with Liberty Builders

Vinyl siding is the number one choice of homeowners in the United States for exterior cladding, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Contractors also prefer vinyl siding because it’s easier to handle, store, and install. Today’s vinyl siding offers all the character and charm of wood siding without maintenance worries, rotting, splitting or insect damage. Choose Liberty Builders for our vinyl siding services! Our siding gives your home the classic look of freshly painted wood with exceptional durability. Here are a few other reasons to choose Mastic Premium Vinyl Siding.

1. It’s Easy to Clean

Unlike other exterior cladding, vinyl siding only requires simple, periodic cleaning with mild soap and a garden hose. Easy-to-Clean Vinyl siding is cleaned with a soft cloth or soft bristle brush. For textured surfaces, the brush keeps the grooves in the texture stain-free. For larger sections, many homeowners use a solution of vinegar and water with great results.

2. It’s Cost-Effective

Minimal maintenance does more than save time, it saves money. With fewer materials to purchase, vinyl siding reduces the life cycle cost of maintaining the home. The money saved could go on other exterior home maintenance repairs and replacements in order to benefit the curb appeal of your home.

3. It’s Diversified

The benefits of low maintenance extend to the architectural trim and accessories necessary to complete an exterior design. Virtually any type of trim or accessory that has been traditionally produced in wood is now available in vinyl and other low maintenance materials, relieving the wood-based worries of painting, swelling, cracking, warping, or insect damage.

Liberty Builders’ Mastic Premium Vinyl Siding is backed by a V.I.P. Limited Lifetime Warranty as well as a Limited fade warranty. We offer a free in-home consultation. Call Liberty Builders to find out more information about siding today!

Home Exterior Trends for 2018

The exterior of your home is arguably the most important part of your home. It’s the first thing family, friends, and neighbors see when they approach your home. The exterior is also the most important part of your home to keep up so that it doesn’t falter in curb appeal. That’s why it’s so important to stay on top of popular styles and trends for the exterior of your home. Here’s what’s trending in 2018!

Color

When talking color trends, your best bet is for your home’s color palette to complement its architecture, along with the landscaping and surroundings. But in 2018, it’s all about making a statement while complimenting those features. Create a combination of light and dark over the exterior rather than using a subtle color palette. Make your home look bold and dynamic by using colors like blue, gray, and black on your siding and mix it with a bold accent like white on your trim to make it pop. And, finally, use a different color altogether for your door. In the example of white on dark, we suggest red or light green.

Texture

Blending different textures and styles is a booming trend for 2018. For instance, use different sizes and styles of cedar shingles in the same color as part of your exterior. If your house was built with brick or stone, they should not be the defining feature of your exterior. Instead, it should be mixed with as many complementary styles as possible to create a dynamic texture but isn’t necessarily defined by it.

Eco-Friendly

A trend for 2018 is something that has been trending for years and that’s reducing your carbon footprint, reducing your maintenance, and just being as friendly to the environment as possible when it comes to your home. When choosing to repair or replace on your home’s exterior, make sure you’re utilizing products and services that cater to the benefit of the environment. This can include anything from using eco-friendly paints to energy-efficient patio covers.

Trends for 2018 aren’t too far off from what you’ve probably been seeing in neighborhoods where remodeled homes are being sold. But there’s definitely a shift toward more dynamic colors, mixtures or siding and textures, and eco-friendliness. If you need assistance with exterior home maintenance, call Liberty Builders today!
