One of the quickest ways to “dress” up your home is to start with the exterior siding. There are many different types of siding to consider and with our skilled employees, Tri-County Contracting, Inc would be happy to talk through all the options with you.
Probably the most popular siding nationwide, vinyl siding has come a long way since its early introduction into home remodeling in the late 1950s. Its purpose was to be the most “maintenance-free” exterior siding product, an alternative to the popular aluminum siding of the time. The draw-backs to the early products decades ago was the lack of color selection, the lack of impact strength and the overall plastic look – something that vinyl siding was known for looking like….plastic siding.
Now, nothing can be further from the truth. This siding has grown not only in color availability, but in durability and definitely in appearance. It has been designed to look very much like cedar siding, something that all siding has tried to replicate throughout the years. Homeowners can choose between different woodgrain textures, varying exposure profiles and dozens of different colors. Tri-County Contracting, Inc offers all different types of vinyl siding including: “Hollow-back” siding panels and Insulated siding panels, offering everything from triple 3-inch exposure profile through single 7-inch exposure profiles.
We are trained and certified by the Vinyl Siding Institute (VSI Certification) and are also certified at the ELITE level with one of the largest siding manufacturers, Mastic. Our trained staff would be happy to discuss with you additional pros and cons to these types of vinyl siding to see which option(s) are best for you and your families home. We do have many different types and profiles on display in our showroom in New Berlin.
