Vinyl siding is one of the most popular exterior siding products available today. Vinyl siding technology developed more than 50 years ago has evolved significantly over the decades. This versatile product has become a high quality exterior cladding material that outperforms aluminum, brick and hardwood in popularity. ViNyl siding Overall low material and installation costs, minimal maintenance, long-term performance, and transformative beauty make it a preferred choice among plumbers and homeowners – whether for a new home or a remodel. Vinyl offers exceptional performance with little effort.

ProVia’s Siding products are among the best for options in vinyl siding colors and different styles. Our lifestyle and signature collections enable customers to choose colors and coordinated accessories that match every living style. Our super polymer formulation is at the heart of each of our horizontal and vertical siding, making it one of the highest quality vinyl side products in the industry. ProVia Vinyl Siding offers homeowners and contractors several advantages:

Durability and Weather Resistance: ProVia’s super polymer vinyl siding is designed to be long-term sustainability and will last a lifetime. In contrast to lacquered wood paneling, which fades and deteriorates due to age and weather conditions, it does not peel, splinter, crack or rot. Our vinyl siding is made from inorganic materials, weatherproof ingredients, and acrylic modifiers to create a strong molecular chain that provides increased structural stability and excellent resistance to UV rays, wind, precipitation and harsh climates.

The polymer technology behind our siding includes heat-resistant pigments that deflect harmful UV rays, protect against the heat of the sun, and weatherproof additives to ensure colorfastness and impact resistance. The vinyl siding has an inherent moisture management profile that reduces water build-up and weeps holes along the bottom of the panels that drain the water away. Because it is hung and not nailed down, it allows for a ventilated air space for evaporation so that moisture is not trapped.

Impact resistance is the ability of vinyl materials to withstand a high force or shock applied over a short period of time. Our Super Polymer formulation is engineered with high quality impact modifiers that act as shock absorbers, adding strength and toughness to any siding to combat damage from hail and wind-blown dirt.

Affordability: Siding houses with vinyl is cheaper than using other siding. Vinyl siding installation costs are typically lower than those made from cedar, fiber cement, or brick siding. The long-term running costs are also handy as the vinyl siding will last for decades and maintenance costs are minimal.

Low maintenance: vinyl siding never needs to be painted, stained, sealed or caulked. It is easy to clean with mild soap and water from a garden hose or a wide-angle nozzle on a pressure washer. Strong chemical cleaners are not required to keep the vinyl siding clean. Stubborn dirt, mold, or mildew can be easily scrubbed and hosed off with a soft bristle brush.

Energy efficiency: insulated siding is equipped with strong, rigid foam insulation that is laminated or permanently attached. This combats thermal bridges, the direct heat transfer through the frame of a structure that results in energy loss. The insulated siding provides a continuous protective cover over the frame of a house, increases the R-value of the outer wall and protects it from extreme temperatures. It can bridge the subtle imperfections found on almost every wall and also offers great impact resistance. ProVia’s CedarMAX insulated siding provides end-to-end insulation and covers the house with rigid EPS foam that adheres to the siding board. CedarMAX has been tested and has been shown to increase the R-value of an exterior wall. It’s one of the most energy efficient exterior cladding on the market.

Sustainable: The vinyl siding’s long lifespan means it stays in the house longer and not in a landfill. Up to 99% of vinyl side and accessories waste can either be instantly ground and reused in the manufacturing process or used to make other types of products. Throughout its lifecycle, vinyl siding has 79% less climate change and global warming impact than fiber cement and 85% less impact than brick and mortar. *

Beauty and versatility: Vinyl siding is available in a variety of profiles and colors. In fact, the color and style options for vinyl siding are far greater than any other exterior cladding. Today’s formulations allow for deep, rich colors, and a wide range of isolated, traditional, and decorative styles offer a mix of textures that give a unique curb appeal. ProVia vinyl siding profiles include cedar and oak wood sizes, coarsely sawn and offset shakes and shingles, and plank and slat styles. Color options are available to suit all tastes – clean whites, warm neutrals, light hues, and deep pigments.

As the choice of materials and designs continues to grow, ProVia’s Board ‘N Batten (B’nB) offers a versatile siding alternative in a wide variety of colors. The classic vertical panel offers more design options and offers visual interest for every architectural style. The B’nB siding makes it easy to add striking details that give the exterior cladding a rustic, handcrafted quality. ProVia’s customers use B’nB’s eye-catching custom finish as the primary exterior finish of a house or to highlight entrances, gables, verandas, dormers or buildings.

In parallel with the use of mixed trim, there continues to be a trend towards darker, richer colors. The balancing act with dark colors is to give homeowners the colors they want while maintaining the integrity and performance of the panel. ProVia’s super polymer formula enables the dark colors to withstand weather conditions from Florida to Minnesota to the Rocky Mountains. Pro contractors can rest assured that they will recommend ProVia siding colors like Sea Slate, Nightfall, Willow, and Mountain Berry knowing that the exterior of the home will withstand the elements.
