The best siding options depend on your area, home, and personal preference.
At Thermal King, we offer vinyl and Hardie siding and top-notch installation. Vinyl and Hardie siding are the best siding options in Kansas City because they have a great aesthetic and minimal maintenance requirements. They can also stand up to our harsh climate.
The Best Siding Options Depend on Your Needs
You get wood, metal, vinyl, and fiber cement siding. Choosing the right one for your home will depend on the look you are trying to achieve, your budget, and your neighborhood.
Homeowner associations and municipalities have different rules about house siding. That is why we offer Hardie and vinyl siding so that we can meet the needs of our clients based on their area.
Wood and Metal Siding
Wood and metal siding require more maintenance than vinyl and Hardie siding.
Wood siding needs to be painted regularly and well maintained. It can also warp and rot over time if it is exposed to moisture and is prone to mold.
Metal siding is extremely thin, so it dents and dings easily. This also means that the paint is quick to scratch and chip, leaving your home looking shoddy.
If you are looking for home siding that you will never have to paint again, vinyl is the material for you. It is entirely maintenance-free, which is a big selling point.
In the past, vinyl siding had a bad reputation because it was perceived as a cheap material. But technology has come a long way in the last 20 years, and now you can get wider vinyl siding planks that look like natural wood.
Vinyl is a solid color material that doesn’t show scratches or needs to be repainted over time. In fact, paint doesn’t adhere well to vinyl.
At Thermal King, we offer high-grade vinyl that is weather-resistant. If you choose a low-quality product, you may find that your vinyl siding chalks, discolors, fades, and becomes brittle.
Vinyl isn’t for everyone, but if you are looking for a hassle-free, long-term, no-paint solution, it might be for you.
Here are some of the benefits of vinyl siding:
- It won’t rot, split, or peel
- Greater wind resistance
- Large color selection
- Large finish selection
Hardie Board Siding
Hardie board siding is a high-end fiber cement concrete product. It is a great-looking material that is extremely popular at the moment.
The only downside to Hardie board siding is that the color plus diamond coating only has a 10-15 year warranty and will need to be painted after that. Hardie board siding is not a solid color material and holds paint like wood. If you plan on changing the color of your house after a few years, Hardie board is the best siding option for you because it gives you flexible color options.
Here are some of the benefits of James Hardie siding:
- Kansas City Hardie board is designed with patented climate technology that gives it an edge over steel and vinyl siding
- It is durable and suitable for the harsh midwest winters
- Better withstand worst-case scenario weather like hurricanes, tornadoes, UV rays, and ice storms
The Best Siding Options Should Be Paired with Excellent Installation
Hardie board and vinyl siding are both fantastic materials, but proper installation is key to getting the best out of them.
