BOLD! I always install premium TimberCrest vinyl siding for many reasons. Although it is a bit pricier ($90 per square vs. $50 per square – $120 for darker color options), I prefer it because you honestly get what you pay for. Features of TIMBERCREST PREMIUM VINYL SIDING include a wider variety of deeper color choices (this particular color is CHARCOAL), extra thickness (.046″) to repel hail and other objects, heavy duty nailing strip, larger butt (for extra depth appeal), steel starter (as opposed to vinyl), a 216 MPH wind rating (versus 160 MPH), and a LIFETIME WARRANTY (along with a 25 year fade warranty). You really can’t beat the quality of this product. For this particular home, we removed two existing layers of siding (old vinyl on top of cedar shake). If possible, I like to get down to the original sub-surface for the sake of getting a nice, even lay. The home received a tight housewrap, as well as some new window trim wrap in areas. The homeowner wanted to have a nice curb appeal, so we accented the front peak with TimberCrest Perfection Shake siding (color is Cobalt Blue) separated by a 6″ white trim board (maintenance-free aluminum wrapped). As always, if you want to pick up some new exterior light fixtures for the outside of your house, I’ll install them free of charge when you book a siding job with me. This home now looks like a million bucks! Give me a shout for your FREE ESTIMATE to update the look of YOUR home: 419-212-3200.
