    SIDING

    Why choose vinyl siding from Prevalent Exteriors?

    Durability
    Vinyl is now the number-one siding material available and for good reason: Nothing beats vinyl siding, accessories and trim for sheer endurance. Unlike many other siding materials, vinyl is impervious to rain, cold, salt and snow.
    Vinyl won't rot, peel, dent or show scratches, nor will it ever need painting. A simple soap-and-water rinse once a year is all that's required to remove dirt and maintain the look of freshly painted wood.

    Today's vinyl siding panels offer extrordinary durability and come in a variety of attractive styles, textures and colors.

    Beauty
    Vinyl provides enduring beauty and design flexibility. Using a variety of siding and soffit styles, colors, accessories and trim, you can update a ranch, add character to a colonial or even recreate a Victorian. Moreover, you can select siding that will be consistent with your home's design and fit into the environment and neighboring homes. Unlike conventional vinyl sidings, which may have glossy finishes and exaggerated wood grain, today's vinyl siding provides a beautiful low-gloss finish that looks just like painted wood.

    Value
    Vinyl siding is a great investment. Residing a home is among the top ten remodeling projects in terms of overall payback. If you reside with vinyl, you can often recoup 80% or more of your investment
