“This house definitely needs a facelift,” Jeannie said. She’s been living in her Pembroke home for just over a decade with her husband Mike and their son. “We could get it painted again – which costs thousands of dollars! – but then ten years from now, we’re going to be right back in this same spot.”
A smart alternative to the work and expense of wooden siding is vinyl siding. Today’s high quality vinyl sidings are a planet-friendly building material. They’re durable, able to resist all four seasons of Massachusetts weather without warping, twisting, splitting or fading. The color stays strong, bright and true for decades, even when exposed to bright sunlight. Best of all, vinyl siding requires practically no maintenance. When dust and grime build up, simply spray the house down with a hose or pressure washer – it will look great fast.
“What made the choice for me was the fact I’d never have to pay the painters again,” Jeannie said. “That’s money we could use to go on vacation, or to put away for our son’s college – there are literally hundreds of ways I’d rather spend that money than use it to paint the house.”
Understanding Your Vinyl Siding Options
As Pembroke vinyl siding installers, we urge all of our clients to really take some time and investigate their vinyl siding options before making a choice. There’s so much more to consider than the color!
Locally, one very popular vinyl siding look is the board and batten style. This is a classic New England look featuring vertical vinyl siding. Another option is the more traditional horizontal vinyl siding, which is great for charming, classic, and even quirky homes.
