In a previous blog post Fiderio & Sons mentioned Mastic Home Exteriors, one of our favorite vinyl siding product companies. Mastic, by Plygem, offers vinyl siding, replacement windows, designer accents, trim and gutters for your home. As professional contractors with working knowledge of many home exterior product companies, we highly recommend asking for Mastic products when it comes time to renovate your home.
Low-maintenance siding from Mastic is a great choice for any homeowner. Vinyl siding is a maintainable and durable option for home siding. Professionals and homeowners prefer vinyl siding over cedar, wood, and fiber cement siding.
Mastic Siding Options:
- Insulated Siding: Mastic offers a Structure Home Insulation System, "that is made with a premium recycled-content vinyl siding panel permanently bonded to expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam to provide superior looks and performance over traditional vinyl siding." We prefer Mastic insulated siding because it offers excellent insulation while delivering a beautiful look.
- Traditional Lap Siding: Mastic offers vinyl siding in various colors, textures and durabilities. Our favorite traditional lap siding product line is the "Eclipse" style- which provides the look of wood siding, without any of the problems that wood siding comes with. (We have blogged about faux-wood vinyl siding the past!)
- Vertical Siding: Not all siding is created equal. Don't forget, you can always forgo horizontal siding for vertical siding on your home. Vertical siding can be used as an accent feature or to create design on the exterior of your home. Vertical siding also comes in various styles and patterns, which allows it to add traditional, modern or unique design elements to your home.
- Shakes and Shingles: If you want your home to look like it has the traditional cedar shingle appearance, then Mastic has the answer. Mastic's Cedar Discovery line of authentic shake and shingle siding profiles provides the look of historical American wood, without any of the maintenace or repair. The line provides shingles that mimic the traditional look of cedar shingles, shakes and half-rounds.
- Shutters: Mastic's shutters are a great addition to any home. They complement any style siding with their broad range of colors and styles.
- Windows and Door Accents: Mastic's classic window mantels and doors are low-maintenance and high quality. We prefer the elegant and sophisticated look of window mantels and surround systems, also called "headers."
- Vents: Every home needs gable or utility vents. "Gable vents allow heat to escape in the summer and prevent the formation of condensation during the winter. Utility vents allow for proper airflow in a specific area of the home, and can be used in garages or foundations, or use for range hoods, dryer vents, bathroom exhaust fans and soffit." Both come in various shapes, sizes and colors to match your home.
- Mounting Blocks and Columns: Mounting blocks are used to mount fixtures, such as exterior lights, house numbers, water faucets and electrical receptacles. Mastic columns add a beautiful and stately look to any home. Check out our favorite style, Mastic's gorgeous Monticello columns.
As you can tell, Mastic offers a wide variety of quality products. Fiderio & Sons highly recommends talking with a professional contractor before making any final home siding or accent decisions.
