Are you searching for polymer siding or vinyl siding contractors in St Louis, Columbia MO or Central Missouri?

Many central Missouri homeowners St. Louis, Columbia, and surrounding areas prefer vinyl or polymer siding for their homes instead of the more durable and lasting option, steel siding. At ABC Seamless Siding, our expect installation contractors are happy to install vinyl or polymer siding on your home, however we recommend steel siding for a number of reasons, including longevity, strength, and low cost of ownership due to the fact that it is low or no maintenance.

Even the best quality polymer or vinyl siding has its drawbacks. For example, many homeowners believe that vinyl siding is waterproof, however this is not the case. It is water resistant, which is not the same thing. Mold can develop if water should get under the siding via seams, cracks, or holes. Vinyl or polymer siding is also prone to fading over time, and can warp or sag in hot temperatures, or dent and crack easily under other conditions.

If you are a St. Louis or Columbia homeowner who is considering polymer or vinyl siding, you should also consider the fact that overall, the cost of ownership is higher because it is more easily damaged. Unlike steel siding, vinyl or polymer are materials that are more flimsy and flexible, and since installation requires nailing, it can be heavily damaged in a strong storm containing hail or high winds.
