Vinyl Siding Replacement
Siding is the outer protective material attached to the outer side of your house or building wall. With most walls made of either wood or concrete, wear and tear are inevitable due to reasons such as extreme weather conditions, necessitating the use of siding as a preventive measure. The vinyl siding, therefore, is a type of wall wrapping made primarily from Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC). The different types have different additives to the PVC altering the hardness, resistance, and glossy-look of the siding.

At the same time, the vinyl becomes stronger and therefore, can stand even stronger external unfavorable conditions, not to mention lasting way much longer than the normal vinyl siding. During installation, it is placed in a more flatter way than the other types, to reduce the amount of space between it and the actual house wall to increase its insulation ability.
