Vinyl siding for your Wichita, Kansas area home

Choose vinyl siding from All States Home Improvement and you can lower your monthly maintenance and raise the value of your home. Vinyl siding is durable, affordable, and energy-efficient, without sacrificing a vibrant appearance. It’s less likely to crack or rot over time. Once installed, vinyl siding will provide your home with a high strength protective layer.

Vinyl siding requires very little monthly maintenance. If dirt or debris begin to build upon its surface, all it takes is a hose and a damp cloth and your vinyl siding will look factory fresh once again. And unlike wood, which requires constant scraping and painting, vinyl siding features a blended on the color that will not fade or chip through the years. The same vibrant color that you see on the day of installation will be there for years to come.

When installing vinyl siding, precision is key. Any gaps or leaks and the siding won’t function at peak capacity.

Vinyl vs. Fiber Cement Siding: Which is Best for You?

Your siding is the first thing people notice when looking at your home. It’s like clothes for your house. In an instant, it communicates personality and style. From the color you choose to the material it’s made from, the possibilities are endless. The process of selecting your new siding can be overwhelming, and that’s where we come in! We have been installing vinyl and fiber cement siding in Kansas for more than 25 years, and we have solutions to fit every budget and aesthetic.

At All States Home Improvement, we wrap Kansas homes in vinyl or James Hardie fiber cement siding. Both options have their own unique set of benefits and price points. Before deciding which option is best for your individual circumstances, let’s first go over the similarities and differences between vinyl and fiber cement siding.

Vinyl Siding

Made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) resin, vinyl siding is the most popular option used to adorn homes in America today. Its affordable price point and low maintenance level make it highly accessible for any homeowner. 

A primary advantage of vinyl siding is its color longevity. Unlike other siding options that are painted, the color in vinyl siding is baked in. This means the color runs through the entire piece of siding and cannot be scratched off. Therefore, vinyl siding does not have to be painted.

Affordability is another leading benefit of vinyl siding. Product costs alone make vinyl the least expensive siding option. Additionally, labor costs are lower because vinyl is quick to install.

Durability and simple upkeep round out the list of pros for vinyl. Because PVC plastic is relatively flexible, it resists cracks and chips where other, more rigid options might fall short. And since the vinyl siding surface is slick and smooth, virtually any dirt or grime buildup can be cleaned away with a simple garden hose.

The most important factor when considering vinyl siding is ensuring proper installation. Inexperienced contractors will diminish your vinyl siding’s longevity if they attach it too tightly, resulting in cracks and bulges. Our siding experts have trained for years to guarantee quality installation. All States also offers composite siding with contour foam for an insulated vinyl siding option.

Fiber Cement Siding

Manufactured with a mix of cellulose fiber, cement, and sand, fiber cement siding resists cracks and warping, and it is equipped to resist damage from rain, wind, snow, and ice. While fiber cement products and installation come with a higher price tag, they are built to last around 50 years. Fiber cement siding is impervious to insects and rot, and while requiring painting, most homes can make it 20 years before needing a new paint job.

There are many benefits to fiber cement siding. One reason to choose fiber cement over vinyl is its appearance. Because fiber cement siding is more than five times thicker than vinyl, it has deeper grooves, which gives it a more authentic wood-grain look. Therefore, if you have an older, traditional home with unique details, fiber cement siding would better match your chosen aesthetic. Additionally, fiber cement siding is more flame resistant than vinyl. Because vinyl is essentially plastic, it will melt in a fire, while fiber cement siding is non-combustible and ultimately better at withstanding damage.

We install the highest quality fiber cement siding available: James Hardie siding. James Hardie engineers products for different climates across the country. This innovative technology is called The HardieZone System. Why is it ideal to have siding designed for the Kansas climate? HardieZone means your home will be equipped with HZ5 siding that withstands freezing temperatures and extreme seasonal temperature variations, which we know sums Kansas weather up to a tee! Additionally, HZ5 siding has a unique surface that guarantees superior paint adhesion and improved water management. And James Hardie comes with a 30 year NON prorated warranty!

So which siding option is best for you?

Well, as you might have guessed, that’s ultimately dependent on your preferences and budget. Contact us to schedule a no-obligation consultation with one of our design consultants. We will sit down with you and go over your individual circumstances and help you assess the options that match your budget. Stop by our local showroom to see our siding in action!

Should You Replace Your Windows This Winter?

With the winter months upon us, there is no better time to assess the quality of your home’s windows. Lower energy bills and a warmer home are both undeniable reasons to upgrade your windows, especially during freezing temperatures. While many people choose to replace their windows during the spring, winter is the perfect time to improve your home’s comfort, energy efficiency, and overall value with new windows.

For some, an old home may be a sign of old windows. However, many homeowners have no idea how old their windows are or whether they were properly installed to begin with. While it may be obvious you need new windows if you have visible damage or water leakage when it rains, it’s easy to overlook some lesser-known indicators it’s time to replace your windows. We’ve taken the guesswork out of it by rounding up some of the top signs to look for when questioning whether you should replace your home’s windows.


6 Signs You Should Replace Your Windows

  1. Your energy bills are through the roof.

One of the most motivating reasons to invest in new windows is the potential cost savings. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, you lose 30% of your heating and cooling through your windows. Consider on top of that, old, damaged, or improperly installed windows, and that percentage skyrockets. If you have noticed a steady increase in your monthly energy bills, it is likely time to replace your windows. The cost of energy-efficient windows will ultimately pay for themselves in the form of reduced energy bills each month. Additionally, those new windows will increase the overall value of your home and result in a higher resale price point.

  1. Your windows are drafty.

That annoying whistling sound you hear each time the Kansas wind blows through your window frames is an indisputable sign you should replace your windows. The air rushing through those cracks will be more noticeable and uncomfortable in the heat of summer or cold winter months. During those times, your heating and cooling systems will be working overtime to make up for the cool or warm air escaping your home. Money is quite literally flying out the window!

  1. Your windows are difficult to open.

Your daily workout should not consist of leveraging all your body weight to open the windows in your home. Quality windows should glide effortlessly on their tracks and remain in place until you are ready to close them. If windows are painted shut, won’t open easily, or immediately fall after opening, it’s time to replace them. Difficult or impossible to open windows are not only irritating, but they are also a dangerous fire hazard.

  1. The siding or trim around the window is soft or distressed.

Take a walk around the exterior of your home and inspect the siding and framing around your windows. Is it decaying or falling apart? This damage is not only an indicator you need new windows, but it is also a sign that you may have moisture entering your home that could require additional repairs. Don’t wait for mold to form and spread around your windows before you replace them. 

  1. Your windows fog over.

Foggy car windows have trained us to believe it’s completely normal and safe for our home’s windows to fog over. Condensation on the interior side of your window occurs because the temperature in your home is lower than it is outside, while condensation on the outside is due to the opposite. The more concerning condensation appears between the two panes of your glass windows. Moisture between the sheets of glass is a sign of poor insulation within the window. Older or damaged windows with a deteriorated seal will allow moisture in when it rains or snows, and that moisture will turn into condensation during temperature extremes. It is important to repair or replace your windows as soon as you recognize this sign, as waiting may result in water damage or mold.

  1. Your windows have visible damage.

These common problems are an obvious sign you need new windows, but they are most certainly worth mentioning. If your windows are leaking, cracked, have broken framing, or any visible damage, they should be replaced or repaired. Don’t wait for larger, more complicated problems to develop before addressing the issues at hand.


Is Winter a Good Time to Replace Windows?

It may seem counterintuitive to install new windows during the freezing winter months. Though your home’s thermostat will drop a bit during installation, there are preventative measures to minimize the temperature change. The immediate cost savings far outweigh the short term inconvenience. In other words, don’t wait until spring when everyone else is replacing their windows. The sooner you replace your windows, the sooner you will begin enjoying their benefits. Just imagine how comfortable you could feel in your air-conditioned home next August!

New, clean windows provide more than curb appeal. Yes, they will reduce your monthly energy bills, make your home more climate-controlled, and increase the value of your home. However, when you live in Kansas, it can be easy to overlook the benefit of reducing outdoor noise with new windows. Though you are likely not surrounded by honking car horns late at night, you may have a barking dog next door or a neighbor who loves to mow his lawn at 5 am on Saturdays. New windows can provide a renewed level of noise cancellation to keep you peacefully asleep until your alarm (or child!) awakens you.

The benefits of new windows are clear. From cost savings to comfort, new windows will pay for themselves over time. Be proactive this winter about upgrading your windows when you first begin noticing signs of disrepair rather than waiting for expensive, unplanned damages.
