Vinyl Siding Warping from the Suns UV Rays? Take a look at this!
Have you ever seen warped vinyl siding on your house and wondered why? Well, assuming you aren’t grilling hamburgers next to your home’s exterior, the main culprit is UV reflection from windows and shiny metal surfaces.
Damage occurs when the sun’s rays hit these surfaces and reflect off into another direction, effectively turning yours or your neighbors’ windows into a magnifying glass and melting your siding away like ants on a hot summer day.
The only way to combat this phenomenon is to install a better and more durable product. We at Tri County Windows & Siding are adamant about one product in particular: James Hardie Siding. Made out of solid fiber-cement and built to last, James Hardie Siding comes in a wide variety of colors and textures. Although it’s more expensive than Vinyl, James Hardie Siding is not only affordable, but will save you down the line.
Good-Looking: If you’re partial to a specific siding material – be it cedar shingles, wood lap boards, wood shake – Hardie Siding has a similar match in an unlimited number of colors. And the best part is the product comes with a 15-year warranty on the finish.
Long-Lasting: Unlike wood or vinyl, this siding is completely insect and rot resistant. In addition to a quality product, most Hardie Siding comes with a 50-year, limited transferable warranty.
Fire Resistant: In Minnesota, a house fire burnt two vehicles positioned 60 feet from the flames to a crisp. The Hardie Siding on a neighboring house 50 feet away remained unscathed. How? Hardie siding is 90% cement and sand and is resistant to fire.
Weather Warrior: Whether it’s hail or a hurricane, cement board siding has proven over the years to fend off all weather thrown its way without sustaining damage.
