Frequently Asked Questions
About Siding

Question Index

I’ve seen siding that fades over time and turns gray. Will your siding do that?

Fading to gray happens because of UV damage from the sun over time. We recommend Preservation Siding by Alside to avoid fading. This siding is infused with Ti-Shield titanium dioxide that helps protect it from sun damage from UV rays.

We also have another option that will not fade – APEX Siding. This is made from Ultrex, created by the manufacturer Marvin. It costs a bit more than other options, but it is a superior siding for Racine and surrounding areas that is very beautiful and incredibly durable.

Will the siding you install dent or crack?

No vinyl siding in Racine, Kenosha, or Mt. Pleasant can claim to withstand every impact, but Preservation Siding is very dent resistant. Everyday bumps will not dent this siding. It is built to withstand hail, sleet, and debris during severe windstorms.

Also, this siding has a lifetime warranty against cracking, rotting, warping, shrinking, and swelling.

APEX Siding is at least as durable, if not more so. It comes with an acrylic finish that is four times thicker than factory-applied paint, meaning it is super resistant to breaking, chipping, or splintering.

Will siding make my home more energy efficient?

Yes, if you select ClimaShield to be installed with your new siding. ClimaShield is a special insulating underlayment we recommend installing as the first layer under your siding. It will make your home more comfortable and keep your energy costs lower.

Do I have to pay for my new siding all at one time?

No. You can apply for financing and we can help you get set-up with a payment plan. This is an affordable way to invest in new siding but spread the costs over time.

For more information, visit our Financing page.

How long will installation take?

This depends on the size of the job, but two weeks or less is typical for siding installation in Racine, Kenosha, and the surrounding areas. We work hard to minimize the disruption to your home life. Our crews are polite, neat, and careful of your property.

We can give you a customized timeline for your project during your siding consultation.

Does your siding come with a Lifetime warranty?

Yes. Preservation Siding by Alside comes with a top warranty. We like doing business with Alside because they are a proven company that has been around since 1947. They have earned a reputation for standing behind their products with real warranty protection.

APEX Siding also comes with a Lifetime warranty.

I just want a quote – do I have to go through a sales presentation?

In order to give you an accurate quote, we visit your home to see the scope of the project. Of course, we will need to ask you questions about what you want out of your new siding in Racine or the surrounding areas.

What we don’t do is engage in high pressure sales tactics. You do not need to worry that we will use a request for a quote into a marathon sales presentation. We prefer to educate you on your options, not push you into something you don’t want.
