Best replacement siding

3 posts in this topic

Have ABC seamless steal now but looking at other types, they can not match the color so the hail we had is getting me all new siding.

ABC isn't that great, just my opinion.

For steel siding Edco and Revere are about as good as they come. I used Edco on my house in the dutch lap. It clips together better than Revere and is darn near as strong, if not as strong.

For vinyl I would choose either Revere, Certainteed, or Thunderbay, all in the big lengths for minimal splices and .046 thickness. They all have the 3/4" lap. For normal size siding (12.6 ft.) I would use Owens Corning .048. It is the heaviest vinyl I have seen.

With either of them you can add accents like super corners, lineals, shakes, scallops, etc.

Steel can dent and scratch. Vinyl can break or fade. Hardie will rot and has to be painted.

I choose steel over all, but for the price, high grade vinyl is very good. I wouldn't sell cement board to anyone. Looks old, needs painting, and can rot on your house.

I also wouldn't let anyone use "contractor only" stuff. It's a sales tactic.

Another thing is that vinyl is about the same price as steel to buy, but the steel labor is much higher because it is more particular and harder to work with. Very few do steel. Most do vinyl, next is cement board, both because the install is rather simple.

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
