The number one factor to consider when deciding if it’s time to replace your vinyl siding is the condition of your vinyl siding.

Obviously we’re kidding a little bit – everyone knows vinyl siding doesn’t really go to the bar for a cold one – but if your siding is of legal drinking age or older, it’s time to seriously consider having new vinyl siding installed on your South Shore home.
