5 Reasons to Install Vinyl Siding on Your Home

Posted in Vinyl Siding Contractor Indiana

Advice from Indiana's Leading Siding Installation Contractor

 Thinking of replacing your old cement or aluminum siding? The 5 Star Indiana siding contractors at Trim A Seal have compiled a list of the top 5 reasons you should consider installing vinyl siding instead.

1. Great quality that can withstand damage from rocks from lawnmowers, weather, etc.
2. Significantly improve appearance and the value of your home 
3. Easily replace a single damaged piece of siding.
4. Easy care; spray and wash twice a year.
5. Long lasting, durable and cost effective

In addition to these points, there are many other positive benefits from switching to Alcoa, Variform, or Certainteed vinyl siding. Homeowners have found that installing Alcoa, Certainteed, or Variform vinyl siding is an eco-friendly alternative. When compared to other siding products such as cement, vinyl siding leads the way in energy efficiency. One reason vinyl is considered more efficient, is that the home’s exterior doesn’t need to be repainted every few couple years like fiber cement siding. Because of the light weight of Certainteed, Variform, and Alcoa vinyl siding, less energy is used in transporting it vs. heavier, less fuel efficient products like cement or brick. Also, vinyl siding is recyclable!

Another bonus when it comes to having a green, energy efficient home is that insulated vinyl siding can add 10% – 25% additional R-value to wall systems to reduce energy bills and help the earth at the same time.

Knowing when to Repair or Replace a Home's Siding


Homeowners who have old siding or have experienced substantial wind or storm damage are often left with the question – “is it better to replace my siding or repair it?” Depending on many factors, including your budget and how long you plan to stay in your home, there are a few key things to consider when replacing siding. Let’s first decide if your home needs new siding. The first thing to look for is fungus, warped panels or panels tearing away from the home, separating seams, swelling, boards that no longer lay flat, rottenalcoa-vinyl-siding- wood or moisture on the inside of your house. These can all be tell-tale signs that siding might need to be replaced. 
Dry rot is a huge concern, especially when wood siding is involved. In some cases there maybe visible signs of moisture on the home’s exterior. It’s difficult to tell if your home has dry rot without removing the siding to inspect for damage.

Posted in Alcoa Vinyl Siding, Vinyl Siding Contractor Indiana, Vinyl Siding

Residing Your Home is the most Profitable Home Renovation

Installing new vinyl siding can absolutely increase your home’s value! According to, homeowners are getting a lot less bang for their remodeling bucks than they did a few years ago. From a variform-siding-logosales perspective, remodeling kitchens and bathrooms are the most likely to help you sell your home, but from an investment perspective, kitchens and baths aren't necessarily the best home improvement bang for your buck.

A Harvard University study estimates that Americans spend an average of $160 billion for home remodeling projects each year. A year ago, many remodeling jobs returned 80 percent of their cost or more when the owner sold the house, but thosevariform-brandpage numbers are changing.

Some of the most profitable renovations, such as an upscale vinyl residing, actually paid off more - 103.6 percent – more than they cost. In the Middle Atlantic States, vinyl siding replacement returns 92.3 percent of its cost, well above the national average of 87.2 percent, while in the Southwest the same job returns just 80.9 percent of the cost. That makes residing your home the most profitable home renovation.

The least profitable renovation - a home office remodel, which only recoups only 63.4 percent of its cost.
