Are you considering an update to your home’s exterior? Whether you’re considering vinyl siding, wood siding, or another finish, there’s a new option in town! Meet Everlast Composite Siding.
Everlast Advanced Composite Siding is taking the exterior finish world by storm, and for good reason—this siding is truly built to last. It’s beautiful, looks natural, and low maintenance. Weather Tight is the only provider of Everlast siding in our area, and we’re proud to lead the charge. Here’s why Everlast Composite Siding should be on your radar.
What is Everlast Composite Siding?
Composite siding is the latest advancement in exterior finishes. It looks like wood with none of the upkeep. Everlast siding is made from a unique mixture of granular minerals and polymer resins with built-in acrylic colorants. The stone and resin formula is proprietary to Everlast siding and is unlike other products on the market.
What makes Everlast Advanced Composite Siding so unique? The siding is impenetrable by water, and it’s perfect for our Wisconsin climate. Wood, fiber cement, and other materials absorb moisture, causing them to swell and contract. In the winter, the freeze and thaw pattern can degrade exterior finishes over time, causing wear and tear.
Everlast siding, on the other hand, holds up to wet weather and temperature fluctuations with strong dimensional stability. Moreover, the remarkable durability of Everlast material can also withstand other extreme weather conditions. Wind, hail, and sleet can come and go, but Everlast will stay firmly in place and resist damage.
Because the UV-resistant color is molecularly fused into the siding, it’s surprisingly fade-resistant. As a result, Everlast siding will continue to look bright and beautiful, day after day, year after year. After a few seasons, some sidings eventually get a dull, muted, chalky look, but not Everlast. This exterior finish will look gorgeous for a lifetime.
Since Everlast Siding is so resistant to wear and degradation, there’s no need to paint your house every few years. Take priming, caulking, scraping, sanding, and painting off your to-do list. This finish is virtually maintenance-free. Wash it off with the hose once in a while, and you’re good to go. You’ll save time, money, and the headache of exterior upkeep.
With all of these great features, you probably assume Everlast Advanced Composite Siding must be heavy, right? On the contrary, it’s surprisingly lightweight, clocking in at about half the weight of typical fiber cement siding. This is a wonderful option that looks stunning on your home. The CedarTouch® finish is modeled from real cedar, making it look authentic and natural. With many popular color options to choose from, Everlast is a homeowner’s exterior finish dream.
The Trouble with Other Exterior Finishes
Everlast outdoes the competition. Wood, vinyl siding, and even other composite siding options can’t hold a candle to Everlast in terms of durability, ease of maintenance, and longevity. This is siding for a lifetime.
Wood siding is subject to swelling and contraction. After a time, wood rots and deteriorates. It requires constant upkeep and yearly touchups to look fresh. After several years, wood siding often won’t hold paint because it has become so degraded and worn. This means painting your home becomes an annual spring chore.
Wood rot can be a problem in many areas of your house. To see the hazards of wood rot around your home, don’t miss this video from Tod & Todd:
In addition to rot, wooden finishes are subject to wood-loving pests. The most common in Wisconsin are carpenter ants, powderpost beetles, and termites. We occasionally have carpenter bees and other wood-boring insects as well. These pests are hungry for your home’s exterior, and the only way to fend them off is with pricey pest control.
Everlast is made with inorganic material, meaning these pests won’t feast on your home anymore. Because of our protective installation method, you can rest assured that pests will go elsewhere and won’t invade your house. Stainless steel seam brackets tightly join siding planks. There’s no risk of thermal expansion that opens seams up to weather, pests, and other issues.
What’s more, Everlast will keep your home protected and resistant to all of the hazards of Mother Nature. Before we install Everlast Siding on your home, we put down a Tyvek HomeWrap®. Tyvek is a protective material that blocks air and water from seeping into your home.
Tyvek protection is breathable, which keeps air and water from creeping in and allows moisture to get out of your house. All homes have humidity and vapor from people, pets, plants, cooking, showering, and other activities. Tyvek lets this moist air out, preventing mildew caused by moisture build-up. It also promotes energy efficiency, allowing your insulation to do its job and keep your home at a consistent temperature. It’s another part of our careful installation process.
