Replacement Home Siding Installation
Have you ever stopped to inspect the outside of your home? It may be made from any number of materials, including brick, stucco, vinyl, metal, or wood.
The type of material chosen is much like choosing an outfit. When you wake up in the morning, you look out your window to see what the weather is like before getting dressed and going out your door. Similarly, a house is dressed based, not on a single day of weather, but rather on your location’s climate year-round. More energy flows out of walls than any other area of your home. Therefore, it's important to properly insulate the walls of your home before siding is installed.
The second factor in home siding choice derives from style. You don’t dress yourself based on weather and comfort alone. You want to look good! The Window Store wants your home to look just as good, whether you’re remodeling for safety, energy efficiency, or to increase the property value.

The Best Choice in Home Siding
Vinyl siding has grown in popularity since its debut in the early 1960’s. Why? It’s strong, durable, easy to maintain, clean-looking, and versatile. In addition, the unique polyvinyl chloride material expands and contracts in varying weather conditions and temperatures, allowing the shell around your house to maintain its protective integrity year-round.
Over 50% of people in the market for a home exterior opt for vinyl because of its value. Vinyl delivers a classic look that appeals to most home buyers, naturally increasing the resale value. In addition, vinyl maintains its color across every panel. There’s no need to repaint from fading or weather effects, and that kind of low maintenance enhances the appeal of vinyl to homeowners, both present and future.
There are hundreds of vinyl manufacturers in the country. The Window Store has chosen only a select few to install. We never sacrifice quality to save money.
Vinyl Siding Options
Even within the vinyl category of home exteriors, there are options to set your home apart and give it that unique appearance you desire! It starts with the hanging pattern:
- Shingles - Vinyl siding comes in small square or rectangle pieces that overlap in a pattern similar to a brick house.
- Horizontal Lap - Another type of vinyl siding utilizes long panels that lay horizontally across the length of the house. This is the most traditional look.
- Board and Batten - Much like the horizontal lap design, board and batten utilizes long vinyl panels. However, it aligns them vertically up the height of the house. Thus, the home appears taller.
A home may incorporate more than one of these hanging patterns. To find out what kind of custom design you can incorporate into your home exterior, contact The Window Store.
The final vinyl siding option is panel thickness, also known as gauge. The larger the gauge, the higher quality and more durable the panel. It’s essentially a thicker shell, thus protecting your home from heavier impact due to rain, wind, and other storm forces in addition to accidental damage. It’s also important to note that a thicker paneling will hang more flat and straight, thus giving the professional finish an even sharper look.
