Vinyl Siding

Stopped by the house today for a quick visit and saw this:

Sorry for the terrible quality, the sun was just about non existent when I made my visit. I was using my cell phone on night mode and most of the pictures are too blurry to post. A few came out OK, this one being the best. The metal porch roof has to be finished and the column installed as well as the rest of the shutters. So I'm sure they will be finished Monday with all the Vinyl. I'll take better quality shots Monday and update the blog soon after.


  1. Love the siding color!

  2. Hi Cody, looking good! I think this is my favorite sidling color-Stone Mountain Clay!! It's gorgeous! Could not get it; however, optimistic that I will love my new exterior choices. Are the shutters/doors black--great combination?

    1. Thanks Nadase, we love it too! I'm sure your exterior choices will be really nice. The shutters and door will indeed all be black. I'm not sure about the door being black, I hope it's not too much.

    2. Ahh! What a simple but tremendous looking design! From the elegant garage door, to the simple color of the sidings, to the great color choice of the roof! Everything! It's really interesting to see the interior after all the arrangements have been finished.

  3. Hello there! I'm glad to stop by your site and know more about vinyl siding. This is a good read. Keep it up! I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about vinyl siding in your area.
    Vinyl siding can be observed in a wide range of product quality realized in a substantial differences in thickness and lasting durability. Thickness can vary from .035" in cheaper grade siding products up to .052" in the highest grade products which vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. Today, the thinnest vinyl siding commonly used is .040", and is known as "builder's grade". Vinyl product can vary in thickness even within one manufacturer up to .010" of thickness through varying product lines offered that range from basic to premium-grade products. Thicker vinyl products, usually realized in higher cost, are more rigid which can add to the aesthetic appeal and look of the installed, inherently flexible product and also add to durability and life expectancy. Thicker grades of vinyl siding may, according to some, exhibit more resistance to the most common complaint about vinyl siding – its tendency to crack in very cold weather when it is struck or bumped by a hard object while others feel that a thinner product may allow more 'flex before cracking' and is a subject of debate. However, at "This Old House" website, this assertion about thickness and crack resistance is disputed. They claim to know of test results that indicate chemical makeup has a greater influence on impact resistance than does thickness.
    Designers Choice pigment concentrates produce uniform colors that go clear through the panel. The colors can’t wash away because they are part of the siding itself.

  4. I've never really been a fan of vinyl siding until recently. In Edmonton though they've developed a great composite-vinyl material that has worked beautifully.

  5. Wow! Your house is beautiful and quite spacious! You must be excited to get things done and move in to your new abode. What technique did they use on your vinyl siding installation? I hope they used the new siding installation technology which includes a rain screen that allows air to flow and prevent the walls from being wet. We’ll be waiting for more updates!

  6. You’ve got a nice color combination for your roof, siding, shutters and trims. The colors complement o each other pretty nicely. Anyway, why don’t you paint the main door with a darker shade? I think that would spruce up your entryway.

  7. I really like this post. I am adding some very similar vinyl siding in Calgary to my home. I think that it looks great.
