How to Choose Siding in KC – Compare Three Best Quality Names 

Siding not only makes your home look nicer, it can increase your home’s curb appeal, resale value, and energy efficiency. But make sure you choose a quality siding that will last. Knowing how to choose siding for your home can be challenging. No two homes or  homeowners are the same, which is why we offer multiple types of siding to fit your architectural style, taste, and budget. We’ve narrowed it down to three of the best quality products on the market. Let us compare these three different brands. Then you can decide which one is right for your home. 

We Carry Only Quality Siding Brands 

At All-Weather Window, Doors and Siding, quality is the name of the game. There are many quality products on the market, but there are also some cheap, low-quality products that won’t last and aren’t worth the money. We believe your home is an investment and it’s meant to stand for decades. For that reason, we don’t carry any products we can’t stand behind with strong warranties and fair prices. 

Three Brands of Siding at All-Weather

The  three brands of siding we carry are: 

  • Diamond Kote siding 
  • James Hardie fiber cement siding 
  • LP SmartSide siding 

All three offer beauty, durability, and the best warranties in the business. Whether you choose to buy from All-Weather or another company, you’ll be safe with one of these three brands. We will compare their unique advantages below and if you still can’t decide which one is right for you, just give us a call or stop by our showroom in Overland Park where you can see and feel them in person and we can help you decide.

Experience and Knowledge in the Replacement Window Industry

We’ve been in the replacement window business for so long, many of the best-known names in replacement windows weren’t even in business when we started. Being on the forefront of an industry gave us a unique advantage over some of our competition. We were able to get to know the brands in the marketplace and compare products. When you work with a product every day, you get to know the pros and cons of the product itself, the quality level, the hardware, the energy-efficiency, and the people and policies behind that product. And when you get to know the players, you can’t help but have favorites – manufacturers you rely on for quality, durability, energy efficiency, and affordability. 

We Partner with Andersen Windows

Our favorite brand is Andersen. We believe they represent the best value in the replacement window industry. We are proud to be Kansas City’s premier Andersen Circle of Excellence showroom displaying the finest Andersen windows and patio doors. Our installers are experienced Andersen installers so you know the windows will be installed to manufacturer specs and standards. That means your Andersen windows will perform as promised.

You can count on All-Weather to bring you the best!

National Quality with Small Town Customer Service

While our products are national, our service is personal. Because we are a smaller, local company, we can go above and beyond when it comes to customer service. We don’t have “corporate” telling us what we can and can’t do for our customers. We know what it takes to make you happy and we simply do it. It’s the best of both worlds.

For instance, when we install a door, we also take care of the painting and/or staining of that door. You may be surprised to find out that many other window and door companies in Kansas City don’t offer that service. You have to find someone else to paint your door or do it yourself. We understand that those are the kind of service details our customers have come to appreciate. It’s why they come back time after time. Windows, doors, siding – you can trust All-Weather to have all of your energy-saving home improvements under one umbrella. Just look for our yellow umbrella.

Cost vs. Value Report: How New Windows, Doors, & Siding Can Save You Money in 2017

cost-vs-value-report-2016-2017-all-weather-windows-doors-sidingHave you heard the news? The final analysis from Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value Report shows that adding new windows, installing exterior doors, as well as adding new and beautiful home siding benefits your home and saves you money.

The experts at All-Weather are breaking down this valuable report to give you the facts and trends that truly matter:

Remodel Return Comparisons

As we move into 2017, remodel trends are geared toward curb appeal features that are more energy-efficient than ever. An average home remodel project gave homeowners a nearly 65% return by increasing the value of a home sold within one year of project completion. That number is nearly 3% greater than what it was in 2015.

With new door, window and siding designs that feature gorgeous craftsmanship and greater energy-efficiency, 2017 should see an even larger increase of return on investment for home sales after remodel project completion.

2017 Remodeling Trends

energy-efficient-windows-cost-vs-value-report-all-weatherThis coming year homeowners are expected to focus on the areas of greater returns heightening the value of their investment. Those key areas would be doors, windows and siding. For example, the replacement door of choice for 2016 was fiberglass.

Homeowners who anticipate putting a house on the market are upgrading to get a return on investment through better sale prices, but they aren’t the only ones. Data indicates that within six months of moving into a new home, about 60% of homeowners delve into a home improvement project. Return on investment for new homeowners is accumulated gradually through lower energy costs and choosing the most valuable features to remodel or replace. For a great return on your investment, consider upgrading to the latest designs of these home features:

    • Steel Entry Door: Upgrades recouped more than 90% of investment through utility savings created by innovative energy-efficient designs and higher resale value of home.
    • Fiberglass Entry Door: Upgrades recouped more than 82% of investment through utility savings created by innovative energy-efficient designs and improving the resale value of the home.
    • Siding: Upgrades recouped nearly 80% of investment by installing higher quality siding with better insulating properties that created energy savings as well as curb appeal quality which improved market value at sale.
  • Windows: Whether homeowners opted for wood or vinyl replacement windows, consumers enjoyed recouping more than 70% of their investment through energy savings and enjoyed a higher resale price.

The Benefits & Differences of Choosing Fiber Cement or LP SmartSide Siding for Your Home

When choosing between a fiber cement siding and LP smart siding, it’s important to know your facts. For most, once you understand the strengths of each option, the best choice for your home will be obvious. To assist you in this process, All-Weather is giving you all the details you’ll need to make an informed decision.

The Benefits of Fiber Cement Siding & ColorPlus Technology

james-hardie-fiber-cement-siding-all-weather-kcAccording to This Old House, fiber cement siding “might be your best siding option.” The major benefit of choosing fiber cement siding (pictured above) is certainly its durability. It masquerades as wood or masonry, wears like concrete, is not susceptible to warping, sagging, or cracking, and is fire resistant, which means it can survive even the harshest of elements.

This type of siding features a smoother woodgrain, or you can choose an option that features a completely smooth look. Our James Hardie fiber cement siding uses ColorPlus Technology, which means multiple coats of paint are applied and cured in between each coat for a strong bond that will last for years. This ColorPlus Technology gives homeowners the best choices in long-lasting color and comes with a 15-year warranty that covers paint and labor, protecting against peeling, cracking, and chipping.

The Benefits of LP SmartSide Siding & Diamond Kote Finish

lp-smart-siding-all-weather-kansas-cityAnother great choice in upscale siding is our LP SmartSide siding (pictured above), which is quickly making a name for itself due to its extreme impact-resistance, and beautiful appearance which has a texture similar to beautiful cedar wood. Choosing LP SmartSide siding gives homeowners the added benefits of its unique Smartguard technology, as well as the option to finish it using the innovative Diamond Kote finish, which is sure to provide years of maintenance-free beauty.

Diamond Kote Finishing is a pre-finish applied to LP SmartSide siding with over 30 colors to choose from and a custom color option. The Diamond Kote Finish comes backed by a 30-year, No-Fade Warranty from Wausau Supply Company which ensures the long-lasting beauty of your siding.

The Difference Between Factory Primed vs. Factory Finished

Both choices in upscale siding come with the option to be either primed or factory finished. Factory primed means your siding will be installed by us, and once we are finished, it’s already primed and ready for your painter to apply paint.

On the other hand, factory finished means your siding comes completely painted and factory finished for long-lasting color and easy installation. Simply put, if your siding is factory finished when we’re finished with the installation, you’re finished too! Both choices of siding also provide the option for vertical siding or a stucco panel, as well as simulated wood shake shingles for a more Cape Cod or Victorian look.

The Good News: We Have Both!

The good news is that as one of the few companies that offer both options, All-Weather is uniquely equipped to help you decide which option is right for you. Make plans to visit our showroom and chat with our knowledgeable staff. They look forward to serving you!

If you have further questions about choosing siding, please feel free to contact us online or give us a call at (913) 262-4380. We look forward to hearing from you!

Siding Showcase: Which Type of Siding Is Right for My Home?

Are you looking to add maintenance-free siding to your home? Perhaps your siding has suffered from years of storm damage and needs to be replaced, or you just want a new look for your home. In either case, it’s important for homeowners to understand the difference between various siding choices, and the pros and cons for each, in order to make an informed decision.

All-Weather Window, Doors & Siding is dedicated to offering the highest quality siding solutions in Kansas City, which is why we’re breaking down all you need to know about our three most popular types of siding, best applications for each, and their pros and cons.

*All costs are based off the Homewyse 2016 building cost calculator set at 200 sq. ft. of basic quality materials in Kansas City.*

Fiber Cement Siding

james-hardie-fiber-cement-siding-all-weather-kansas-city

This environmentally-friendly siding option is durable, incombustible, and impervious to rot and insects. Fiber cement siding is available prefinished and in a variety of different colors and textures; it can even mimic wood, stone, or brick. We offer the highest-quality options for fiber cement siding, and its durability is unparalleled.

Installation of this product requires specialized tools and the proper safety equipment. Maintenance requires a thorough power wash at least once a year. We also suggest having your siding experts check the seams every few years to determine if they need re-caulking.

The cost of fiber cement siding ranges from $5-$11 per square foot, according to Homewyse.

Vinyl Siding

all-weather-siding-alside-vinyl-siding-kansas-city-home

Vinyl siding has improved tremendously since its inception. It’s generally more fade resistant and less susceptible to chips and cracks than other types of siding. However, it’s still important to choose a premium quality vinyl siding.

Vinyl siding comes in an extensive range of colors, although you won’t have as many choices as you would with paint. However, by choosing a siding that is permanently one color, you’ll never need to worry about gouges or scratches showing up as a different color underneath. Because of its versatility and range of colors, vinyl siding is a popular choice for many different styles of homes.

Maintenance is similar to that of fiber cement, which calls for a deep power washing each year to maintain a pristine look. It is also very important to check the seams of your vinyl siding and to re-caulk when necessary. Don’t forget proper insulation as well! A house with improperly insulated vinyl is like wearing a short-sleeved shirt in a blizzard, so it is crucial to make sure your vinyl siding is installed over adequate insulation.

Homewyse estimates the cost of vinyl siding at $4-$8 per square foot.

Engineered Wood Siding

lp-smartside-engineered-wood-siding-kansas-city-all-weather

Engineered wood siding is perfect for homeowners who want the appearance of real wood, but are looking for a more environmentally sustainable way to get it. You also have options for this type of siding to resemble materials such as cedar, stucco, stone or masonry.

Not only is this choice of siding more environmentally friendly, it’s also less expensive because it doesn’t require the extensive process to construct. This material is extremely durable and also much lighter than wood, which means easier handling.

After installation, engineered wood is close to maintenance-free because it doesn’t require repainting or refinishing. Similar to any other type of siding, it may be necessary to wash once a year, but this maintenance is preventative for ensuring your siding stays in good condition.
