In the beginning, there was wood siding. Ok, technically, first it was rocks and log walls, but in the “modern” era, everything started with wood siding, and later, the addition of asphalt shingle siding. Then, in 1957, Crane Performance Siding got together with Monsanto and created vinyl siding. Easy to install over existing wood siding or asphalt shingles, vinyl siding was a breakthrough in that it didn’t need to be painted or maintained regularly like wood siding, leaving Americans free to pursue more leisure activities instead of scraping and painting the old wood siding. And, as far as a lot of people are concerned, vinyl siding has not changed since its invention in 1957.
I’m here to tell you, our current vinyl siding offerings are not to be confused with that of your parents. Today’s vinyl siding comes in a variety of colors, styles, and textures to mimic the look of real wood siding. Still the lowest maintenance siding option on the market, our vinyl siding (Crane’s Exterior Portfolio Series) now includes SmartCore insulation, which “breathes” to prevent trapping moisture under the siding, is 240% more impact resistant than fiber cement siding, and offers R-values at least 4 times greater than those of fiber cement siding. In addition, our siding with SmartCore insulation reduces noise by up to 45%, and, most importantly, is warranted for the life of home. You read that right: the warranty is for the life of the home, and is not limited to the original owner. You can’t beat that!
Before you start envisioning the traditional vinyl siding you see in older neighborhoods, the stuff that was used to cover up or replace the old siding from the original builders, you should really check out our website to try out the Dream Designer application (Evergreen Door & Window – Siding Dream Designer) to see all of the color and style options now available to you in vinyl siding.
