What do you have now and why doesn't it work? What do we have that will meet your needs?
Elite Exteriors believes you begin with education. What type of siding is on your home? Why does your siding need replacing?
Beginning to think about a siding decision, is like how do you design a rocket?
Forget everything you think you know about vinyl siding! If you look at a house and can say, "oh that's vinyl siding", then it's got something we wouldn't even want to put on your house anyway!
Today's products are technologically superior, some look exactly like cedar because they are molded from real cedar siding. Some are cellular PVC, some vinyl/acrylic composites with bonded Styrofoam insulation, another is polymeric. They are designed with advanced locking systems, with either color throughout or long-lasting coating systems, and even come in single plank styles to imitate the look of fibercement sidings and real cedar.
These sidings are in use every day all over the world on upscale homes and businesses. All are available with a wide array of trim options to complete the package. We specialize in exterior design for your home, along with color design. Leave it to us to assure a beautiful finished exterior.
HardiPlank®, a composition of fibers and cement, created as an alternative to traditional sidings, had the initial expectation of being a lifetime or almost lifetime, durable siding. At first look, it would seem that they hit the mark. At closer inspection, we are seeing failures that range from delamination, to warping, cracking and chipping. While unfortunate, we have already replaced the siding for many homeowners who had hoped for and were indeed led to believe HardiPlank® would give a lifetime of no maintenance. With extra care and some steps that go above and beyond the typical installation, HardiPlank® can be made to perform better; however, installations where shortcuts have been taken lead to sure failure. Annually changing installation instructions and warranties is a sure sign to us that there are indeed issues that have come to their attention with its durability and performance.
We can take the steps mentioned above to ensure for a more satisfactory and lasting installation. As a final word, we would highly recommend coating with CHIC Liquid Vinyl to waterproof the siding. Afterall, it is constructed of FIBERcement. Cuts in the product lead to moisture retention in the siding.
New Technology has led to the invention of a couple of new sidings that we are very proud to offer.
