When we hear of siding, a number of materials come to mind to include aluminum, steel, brick, brick veneer, wood, stucco, and vinyl. Each of these siding options offers a number of advantages and disadvantages although the pros typically outweigh the cons. If you are thinking about having siding put on your home, you will need to make a decision as to type.
Now, a new type of siding has recently been introduced, known as liquid siding. With this, the siding is actually sprayed on. This liquid siding is made from different polymers and resins with a vinyl-like compound. Due to the formula, the siding is simply sprayed on like paint. People love it since liquid siding is also highly protective while never needing to be painted.
In fact, many manufacturers of liquid siding offer a 30-year or more warranty. Best of all, liquid siding actually looks very similar to that of aluminum or vinyl siding. However, the fact that the home would not need painting and liquid siding is easy to clean and maintain it has become a very popular choice. Just one application and your home will look gorgeous.
You will also discover that liquid siding covers much better than standard exterior paint. While traditional siding uses hangers and nails for installation, these unsightly things are eliminated. Additionally, because liquid siding is sprayed on, becoming an actual part of the home you never have to worry about cracks, damaged pieces, waving, sagging or loose panels, and so on.
Now, most types of siding are now offering a variety of beautiful colors but even this has its limitations. However, with liquid siding, you would have a choice of literally thousands of colors and color combinations. Therefore, no matter the size or style of your home, along with personal preference, you will definitely find exactly what you like. All of this coupled with liquid siding's durability and longevity, you can see why this is quickly becoming the siding material of choice.
Another huge benefit to liquid siding is that it can be sprayed directly onto just about any surface. With regular siding, different underlayments are required but with liquid siding, it does not matter. For instance, liquid siding can be sprayed onto stucco, brick, wood, concrete, and even aluminum, steel, and vinyl siding. Then, after the installer has sprayed the liquid siding on, you have a powerful guarantee against blistering, cracking, splitting, flaking, or cracking no matter where you live.
Unfortunately, when liquid siding first came out, a number of poor applications gave it a bad name. Today, not only have installers been specially trained on this type of siding but also the overall materials used are more advanced. Just remember, when choosing liquid siding, always check references so you have confidence in the company you are hiring.
