Siding offers many benefits to you as a homeowner.
One very important factor in selecting you siding is to make sure that it is Certified Siding. The Vinyl Siding Institute (VSI) is the trade organization of the vinyl siding industry. VIS sponsors a program to certify the quality of vinyl and polypropylene siding, ensuring they are verified through an independent quality control agency, Architectural Testing, Inc. (ATI) of York, PA, to meet or exceed the industry standard of quality, ASTM D3679 and ASTM D7254. This is achieved through twice yearly, unannounced plant inspections, product testing and quality review. The VIS product certification also includes a third party verification for vinyl siding color retention.
Iossi is a certified Vinyl Siding Installer. Through the Vinyl Siding Institute's Certified Installer Program experienced professionals receive thorough training on proper, industry-approved vinyl siding installation techniques. VSI's certification process involves a combination of classroom training, hands-on instruction, and a written test given by a VSI Certified Trainer. It is important to note that the quality of the installation is just as important as the quality of the product you select.
Look for these labels to ensure your siding is certified by VSI.
When selecting your siding, consider options:
When you are considering factors like wind resistance, please keep in mind that the MPH rating for most panels meets the VSI certification standards, but how much winds MPH ratings are only part of the picture. Wind creates a 'negative pressure' around your house, depending on factors like your topography, how tall your house is, etc.; and it is this aspect that can creep behind your panels and tear them off. Providing a strong steady support for your panels to hang on to is the reason why nail hems, locks, etc. are so important. So when you are considering which siding to purchase, be sure to look at the components that were engineered to keep the panels tight to your home.
You want your siding to retain it's beautiful luster for years down the road. While most siding these days are engineered to resist heat, cold, sun and rain, not all panels are created equally, so check the testing involved. The better the panel, the more rigorous the testing. Check for formulation pigment technologies where the color stays deep and vibrant all the way through and not just on the surface or underside.
Extreme Weather performance testing also pertains to the color factor, so it is worth noting along with checking to see if the claims were third party or independent party tested, what types of testing were done, where the testing took place, conditions involved, etc. and what the results were.
Color retention is another certification offered by VSI, and requires actual outdoor weathering studies to be conducted for every color a manufacturer is considering. Each color must demonstrate the ability to resist major changes over time in a variety of climates.
