If You Want to Get the Best Vinyl Siding for Your Home.

Vinyl is the most popular type of siding material in Connecticut. It’s beautiful, energy efficient, low maintenance, and a reasonable investment.

But just like any other product, vinyl siding quality can be all over the map. Whether you get a superior or subpar vinyl siding project depends on two factors: the brand of vinyl siding you choose and the contractor you hire to install it.

With that in mind, we’ve created a simple guide to follow to ensure you get the best vinyl siding project possible. Here’s everything you need to know about vinyl siding before you make a decision…

Vinyl Siding Certification

You can’t throw a stone in Connecticut without hitting a vinyl siding-installation company. But though there are many vinyl siding companies in the area, few are certified by the Vinyl Siding Institute (VSI).

Why does this matter? The VSI offers rigorous training courses and comprehensive exams to test an installer’s knowledge about vinyl siding and installation. Hiring a VSI-certified vinyl siding contractor ensures high quality work from a true professional. VSI-certified companies know how to fasten vinyl siding, keep it flat and secure on the walls, and safely prep the work area around doors and windows.

Companies without VSI certification may still be able to install your siding correctly. But if you hire a company without VSI certification, you do take away the absolute guarantee that your siding will be installed right.

Choosing The Best Brand

Not all vinyl siding is created equal. When you are researching different vinyl siding brands, be sure to check the brand’s reviews, features, and credentials. This will help ensure you get a high-quality product.

We’ve been in business since 1951. We’ve seen and handled dozens and dozens of vinyl siding brands. Here are two brands of vinyl siding we unconditionally recommend to Connecticut homeowners:

CertainTeed Siding: For 20 years in a row, contractors have named CertainTeed the highest quality vinyl siding on the market. CertainTeed vinyl siding offers the widest array of colors in the industry, which are certified through the Vinyl Siding Institute’s Certification Program and protected with CertainTeed’s exclusive PermaColor™ Lifetime Fade Protection. CertainTeed also backs their vinyl siding with a true Limited Lifetime Warranty.

Mastic Siding: We recommend Mastic vinyl siding for homeowners looking for superior quality on a budget. Mastic vinyl siding provides the beauty of freshly painted or stained wood… with none of the maintenance. It comes in a large variety of colors and styles, so finding the right look for your home is easy. And since Mastic backs up their siding with a Limited Lifetime Warranty, you get a beautiful exterior product that’s guaranteed to last.

We recommend these brands NOT because we install them. We install them because we firmly consider these two vinyl siding brands to be the best on the market.

Benefits Of Quality Vinyl Siding

You’ll experience many benefits from superior vinyl siding installer by a VSI-certified contractor. High-quality vinyl siding is very low maintenance, it looks spectacular, and it is a great way to save money on your energy bills while helping keep your home a comfortable temperature. The other big benefit of quality vinyl siding is the price tag—vinyl siding costs less than many other siding materials… while typically providing more value and benefits.
