Excellent value. The popularity of vinyl siding is easy to understand. It’s attractive, inexpensive, and nearly indestructible. Plus, you can select from different styles, colors, and textures. But what many people like best is the fact that this siding doesn’t require painting or maintenance.
Of all the different exterior home siding choices available today, vinyl siding stands out for the excellent value it offers. The vinyl material sheds moisture rather than absorbing it. Vinyl siding also does not support mold or mildew growth and won't succumb to moisture damage.
Vinyl siding is designed to look good for many years, retaining its original color despite extreme exposure to the elements. This siding product also delivers impressive performance without requiring any maintenance. The cost of installation is your only expense.
New siding, along with a well-maintained roof, can increase your home’s value and dramatically improve your home's curb appeal. Certitude Home Improvements is your one-stop source in Southeastern Pennsylvania and the Main Line for all of your roofing and siding contractor needs!

This customer wanted a new roof and siding but needed the help of our Design expertise. We discovered the customers color and texture preferences they trended towards and worked from there to finalize a design. The end result was a Owen Corning Duration Designer shingle in Sand Dune and Certainteed Carolina Beaded sidng in Sea Grass with offset white corner posts, black shutters, and a new PVC capped porch post, gutters and downspouts, facia and rake capping along with vinyl soffits.
This homes siding was deteriorating from old age and rot and the homeowner needed to act fast. The Project Estimator, Ed , worked with the homeowner to design a new look and style for their home. The Certitude siding crew wrapped the house in a combination of material including Certainteed Cedar Boards and Vertical vinyl siding in 'Natural Clay' color. New soffit, fascia and gutters were added to finish the project.
This homeowner had a stucco issue and the entire house needed new siding and windows. Ed our estimator helped design this homes exterior using Certainteed insulated CedarBoard Woodgrain single 7" Clapboard in Savannah Wicker with white corners for a touch of design flair. We also installed Certainteed stone facade to one section of the home and added a metal standing seam roof to the front entrance way roof. In addition we built a penn eave over the 2 garage doors to give a little overhang when it rains at the garage entrace. We also installed Simonton Brickmold 300 series window throughout the home.
This design ended up with the perfect color along with the added Scalloped siding on the front gable to really make this house stand out from the neighbors and make it look sweet. Ed our estimator was able to pull this project together based on his knowledge of the products and the customers design preferences.
This home recieved a Certainteed Carolina Beaded Siding in Granite Gray upgrade. We added some flair with vinyl lineals around some of the windows and added cornice molding to the top of the garage windows. Also we replaced the gutters they are now enlarged 6"K Aluminum gutters with 3x4 downspouts. This job was topped off with new vinyl soffits and custom bent capping to the rakes and fascia boards.

The ability to withstand high winds (certified up to 110 mph or higher) and a composition that resists heat, cold and moisture, certified vinyl siding retains its great looks over time. Vinyl siding never needs paint. Ever. The only maintenance it will need is a simple wash with a soft cloth and garden hose to keep it looking great.
CertainTeed Vinyl Siding offers the best vinyl siding features and color options, along with exceptional durability and lasting beauty.
- What’s the best way to prove a product will perform as promised?
Independent testing. This is why the Vinyl Siding Institute (VSI) established the VSI Product Certification Program.
Administered by Architectural Testing, Inc. of York, PA, the program allows manufacturers to certify with independent, third-party verification that their products meet or exceed the testing requirements specified in the industry standard for quality.
-How many products have passed this Certification Program?
There are nearly 825 products and nearly 325 colors on VSI’s Official List of Certified Products and Colors. In 2012, approximately 18 million squares of vinyl siding were manufactured in the United States. (A square equals 100 square feet of siding, or enough to cover a 10-foot x 10-foot area.) Another key test of quality is how long manufacturers are willing to warrant their products. Warranties offered by vinyl manufacturers typically last a lifetime and can be transferred to the next owner.

Old windows stand out like a sore thumb when a house gets new siding. Older windows also waste energy, compromise interior comfort and require regular painting. For the ultimate exterior makeover, consider having replacement windows installed along with your new siding.
Having new windows and siding installed at the same time will likely cost less than having the two projects done separately, especially if both are completed by the same contractor.
With possible features like low-e, argon-filled insulated glass, and advanced vinyl construction, you’ll get maximum energy savings and totally maintenance-free windows.
Made primarily from PVC (polyvinyl chloride) resins, vinyl siding was first manufactured in the 1950s, but the widespread use of this siding material didn’t begin until the late 1970s.
Vinyl siding offers the advantages of zero maintenance, immunity to mold and moisture damage and plenty of styles and colors to choose from.
In better-quality vinyl siding, a wood-grain surface texture can make the product look surprisingly like real wood. Better grades of vinyl siding also tend to be thicker, for improved rigidity and greater impact resistance.
Because PVC expands and contracts significantly in response to temperature changes, it can’t be solidly nailed to wall sheathing. Instead, each course of siding “floats” on slotted nailing fins.

Added value. Installing a continuous layer of rigid foam insulation beneath new exterior siding can stop cold winter drafts and make your home more comfortable and more energy efficient.
If you’re planning on replacing your siding or need siding for a new construction job, it’s smart to ask about rigid foam insulation that can be installed beneath or integrally with the siding.
Rigid foam insulation is made in different thicknesses and comes in large panels.
This added layer of insulation improves the R-value of your exterior walls, helping your house to retain heat during winter months, and keeping heat out during the hotter months. A layer of rigid foam insulation can be installed beneath the new siding, or you can buy your siding with the foam already attached to each siding course or panel.
The overall impression created by new siding is as much about trim details as it is the siding itself. In a truly professional installation, the corner trim, J-channels, soffit panels, gutters, and downspouts all look good together. Compatible colored caulks and sealants should also be used. Make sure to discuss these details along with your best siding choices when planning your new siding installation.
