Denver’s Vinyl Siding Leaders

Vinyl siding is a perfect replacement product for wood houses beginning to show their age on the outside. The product has an appearance similar to wood including a “woodgrain” type finish. It is a perfect choice to upgrade the exterior of a home; it’s great for “fix and flips,” ideal for rental properties, and is a terrific option for other residential or commercial properties where the price point cannot justify the expense of other exterior improvement products.

Vinyl siding is used primarily on single-family homes priced up to $250,000. Approximately 1/3rd of its production is used for new construction, and 2/3rds is used in the remodeling industry. It is a very popular replacement for many Denver homes that were originally built with traditional wood siding products.


Vinyl Siding Benefits

Vinyl siding has been one of the most popular choices for siding in Colorado for years –and for good reason too! Vinyl is durable, energy efficient, and beautiful and is a great choice for remodels and new construction homes alike. By choosing vinyl for your residing project, you can experience many enjoyable benefits including:

  • Cost: Vinyl is one of the most economical options for residing your home and does not require any expensive upkeep or maintenance.
  • Low maintenance: Vinyl siding mimics the appearance of wood without the high level of maintenance. Because the color goes through the panel, it does not require any future scraping, staining, or painting.
  • Aesthetics: Vinyl materials allow for deep grooves, giving them an authentic wood or cedar appearance.
  • Durability: While other siding options may split, crack, or rot, vinyl does not.
  • Versatility: Vinyl siding is available in both horizontal and vertical styles as well as many different finishes and color options.

Vinyl Siding Options

Remodelling your home with vinyl isn’t just a practical option; it’s also fun too. There are many different options for residing your home with vinyl including that can make your home improvement experience fun and enjoyable. When you choose to reside your home with vinyl, you’ll be able to choose from a whole world of options including:

  • Horizontal: Horizontal vinyl siding is a clean, classic option that’s perfect for any type or style of architecture. Add vertical accents or trim to your horizontal siding to really spice things up.
  • Vertical: Vertical siding is especially useful for placing emphasis on height or design features and is a unique, stylish option for residing your home. Place vertical siding around your porch or balcony for a dramatic, eye catching look.
  • Energy Efficient: Energy efficient options help protect your home against the elements and save money on heating and cooling costs.
  • Colors: When it comes to vinyl siding colors, the options are virtually limitless. Go bold with rich autumn red, coastal sage, or laguna blue or opt for something more traditional like natural linen or cape cod grey.

Using Vinyl Siding

Recent technological advances mean that higher end vinyl siding products now include UV (ultra violet) stabilizers to provide resistance to breakdown from UV light. Most major manufacturers apply a spectrally selective UV coating that to the surface that filters out UV rays from the sun which would otherwise degrade the PVC material (polyvinyl chloride) that the siding is made of. This is important in Denver where we have 300 days of sunshine a year, and far higher levels of UV rays than lower elevations. Dry climates are also more suited for this product than wet climates as vinyl siding has been shown to “yellow” less in dry conditions



PVC is an extruded thermoplastic polymer. Environmentally, there are pros and cons to its use. The environmental pros are:

It uses less energy to produce than other types of siding. This is a very good thing since more than over 2 billion square feet are being produced annually.

It has significant insulating and heat saving properties, so it is considered a “green” product because it will save significant energy. This, of course, also benefits consumers by resulting in noticeably lower utility bills for heating and cooling their homes.

The lack of need for painting also means less toxins in air and water.
New vinyl siding can be recycled (such as factory remnants and job site leftovers) but unfortunately, old product removed during remodeling is not recyclable.
