CertainTeed Vinyl Siding Colors
CertainTeed vinyl siding comes in more than 40 colors, depending on the type and style you choose. You never have to paint vinyl siding. Choosing a high quality product will ensure that the color will stay true for years. CertainTeed products carry a lifetime limited warranty against fading, peeling and chipping.

CertainTeed Siding Styles
The house on the left shows traditional horizontal vinyl siding. This style is often called clapboard, beveled siding or weatherboard. On the right, you see both Cedar Impressions™ and board and batten siding. Cedar Impressions™ is a polymer siding by CertainTeed available as traditional straight edge shingles, half round shingles or shakes (shown). Board and batten siding is vertical style siding that alternates wide and narrow straight boards.
Vinyl Siding Cost
Compared to other home siding materials, vinyl is a great value. In the Remodeling Magazine 2012-2013 Cost vs. Value Survey, vinyl siding was listed among the highest return on investments at 72%. In addition, re-siding your house in vinyl can dramatically increase curb appeal and have a major impact on resale value.
The cost of vinyl siding varies based on the type of material you select, trim and accessories, as well as square footage of your home.

Vinyl Siding Maintenance and Repairs
Tips for Keeping Your Vinyl Siding Looking Like New
Most vinyl siding products offered by Fichtner Services are backed by a limited lifetime guarantee against manufacturer defects and workmanship. Caring for vinyl siding is easy and with proper maintenance, you can keep it looking like new for several decades.
Vinyl siding products are resistant to common stains like oil and grease. Like any product exposed to the elements, vinyl siding can become dirty. For most grime and dirt, you can clean your siding with a garden hose and soapy water. If you have stubborn stains, mold or mildew that won’t come off with regular household detergents, contact Fichtner Services for a consultation.
Vinyl Siding Repair
With quality product and installation, chances are you’ll never need repairs to your vinyl siding. Extreme weather can cause damage, however, in these cases contact Annapolis siding contractor Fichtner Services for a siding repair consultation. If we installed your siding originally, we should be able to repair damage quickly and easily. If we did not install your siding, we will want to evaluate the age and overall condition to determine if a repair or replacement is the best solution.
