15 Years Later, Is Your Omaha Siding Faded, Chalky and Just Plain Ugly?Jun 26, 2014
Often builders (and sometimes homeowners) take the easy route when siding an Omaha home. They choose vinyl siding that’s cheap, maintenance-free, quick to install, and comes in a lot of colors. This decision doesn’t make much of a difference initially. It’s only after a few years that the cheap route starts to show. After 15 years, you’ve ended up with vinyl siding that’s faded, chalky and just plain ugly.
So what’s the appearance-conscious homeowner to do? There are a couple of options. First, you can paint the vinyl. There are latex-based paints available that will coat vinyl if you want to freshen up its appearance and/or change the color. This is somewhat self-defeating, however, since most buyers are drawn to vinyl siding because it doesn’t need to be painted. In addition, many manufacturers will void the siding warranty if it is painted – dark paint colors can cause the siding panels to expand too much and buckle.
The other choice: get the job done right, even if it’s not the first time.
