Vinyl Siding Winter Installation

Posted on by andyadmin in Vinyl Siding Leave a comment

I get asked all the time what I do during the winter months. And my response is always, “we work of course!”.

It’s a common misconception that construction can’t happen when it’s too cold outside. The bottom line is cold AND heat affect building materials. It’s just as important to understand how to properly install vinyl siding when it’s 40 degrees as when it’s 90 degrees, because it’s impossible to only have projects going on during an ideal 50 to 60 degrees, and here in Connecticut the weather rarely cooperates!

Benefits To Installing Vinyl Siding In Winter

 
Let’s talk about one of the biggest advantages to installing siding in the winter. We aren’t as busy, and are more likely to give you a deal. In the spring and summer, we often have more work than we can handle, so there is absolutely no incentive for us to give out discounts. Not to mention, the vinyl siding manufacturers themselves often lower prices on materials during the fall and winter, just to move product.

So, as long a you hire a contractor who is competent, and has experience installing year round, like we do, then it’s in your best interest to do your siding project during the fall / winter months.

Don’t forget about the energy benefits of siding. Not only do we install an additional layer of insulation under the vinyl, but if there were any gaps in the old siding or around the windows, we fix it. If your house is particularly drafty, siding your house may go a long way to increase curb appeal, house resale value AND save on heating costs.

Give me a call to discuss the different siding options and we can have a no-pressure conversation about what the costs might be.

Beautiful Vinyl Siding for a Fairfield County Home

Posted on by andyadmin in Vinyl Siding Leave a comment

Vinyl siding has come a long way! If you love the idea of maintenance free siding that never needs painting, but are concerned about the aesthetics of vinyl, then you might want to check out some of the new products available – in particular at CertainTeed.com

Wood is beautiful, but who has the time or desire to scrape, prime, and paint it to keep it maintained … or wants to pay for someone to do it? Not to mention the sealing of cracks and other prep work to protect your home from leaks, insects, and mold.

Vinyl is easy to install, provides it’s own layer of insulation, and really does a better job of “sealing” up your exterior.

Some of the vinyl siding products available are offered in vibrant, rich colors that are much less susceptible to fading. Many look like real wood, with different styles of grain, along with matching accents – eave vents, trim, shutters, and lighting trim.

We Also Install Seamless Gutters…

Posted on by andyadmin in Vinyl Siding Leave a comment

If you’re planning to have new vinyl siding installed on your home, why not take care of your gutters at the same time?  It’s something we do all the time, and it’s more efficient to have this done together with the siding because we already have the scaffolding and ladders all set up – which means we can include seamless gutters for only a small additional price.

In this video we talk a little about our approach to installing seamless gutters at one of our CT job sites.

Full Video Transcription

Creative Home Improvement has been installing Vinyl Siding all over Fairfield County for nearly 40 years.

Today we’re talking with Andy about the option of installing seamless gutters at the same time as vinyl siding.

We use 0.032 gauge aluminum on all our gutters, it’s the thickest material you can get, so if you ever have to put a ladder up against it, it’s not gonna bend.

On this job we used Cedar impressions from Certainteed – giving you the real wood shingle look without the maintenance

We work in many area towns including Orange, Derby, Ansonia and more.

The Details Make The Difference: Siding Around Outdoor Lights

Posted on by andyadmin in Vinyl Siding Leave a comment

When installing vinyl siding on your home, it’s important to use proper j-blocks when putting the outside lights back up.  Not only does this give a clean finished look, but it also insures water does not leak in through the light junction box area – which could cause multiple problems.

As we’ve discussed in the past, you can get the highest quality siding materials for your home, but if it’s not installed meticulously, you’re going to experience problems down the road – and you lose the benefit of having a “maintenance free” vinyl exterior.


Full Video Transcription

Creative Home Improvement has been installing Vinyl Siding all over Fairfield County for nearly 40 years. Today we’re talking with Andy about how they handle siding around outdoor lights

On every vinyl siding project we install j blocks, which go behind your lights.  The key to that is – it’s a beautiful finished look – when we’re done the vinyl siding fits into the built in j channel on the j block and then your light gets attached on top of the j block. Of course, these lights are a little old – so when it comes time to do your project, if you buy brand new lights, we’ll put those up at no additional charge.

On this job we used Cedar impressions from Certainteed – giving you the real wood shingle look without the maintenance. We work in many area towns including Trumbull, Stratford, Easton and more. To request a quote, call us at (203) 929-5737 or visit CreativeHomeImprovementLLC.com
