Designing a beautiful exterior makes it easier to sell your home in the future. The ideal exterior blends in with the rest of the neighborhood while subtly standing out from your neighbors. Nova Exteriors offers three different options for finishing a home in need of style that will last for years. All three options for siding come with their own sets of unique benefits, and some can be used together for an eye-catching finished look for the home.

The first step, though, is picking the right material:
Available Siding Types
Vinyl siding is a low-maintenance option that can look like nearly any other material you like. There's no need to deal with the painting and sanding of wood siding when vinyl has the same look without the work. The coloring agents are mixed into the material before it is poured into the texturing molds, reducing fading problems over time and ensuring there is no peeling and bubbling after just a few years. The light weight of vinyl materials also make installation fairly quick and easy. If something does damage a section of the siding, it can be removed and replaced without disturbing the rest of the exterior. Of course, the affordable price of vinyl siding also helps it stay one of the most popular products on the building supply market.
James Hardie siding boards are affordable and tough, but they also bring a lot of traditional or modern style to the table. The boards are coated with a solid, baked-on finish to keep moisture out of the material while adding long-lasting color. Choose from shades that remind you of classic weathered barns or bold greens and blues that really pop. Various products are available to meet the climatic requirements of Northern Virginia, meaning there's no reason to worry about high humidity or late summer storms when using this type of siding. This Northern Virginia siding is also thicker than other products, giving it resistance to 150 mile per hour winds and debris like hail and falling branches.
Finally, don't forget about PVC trim options from Azek and Nova Exteriors. The trim acts and feels like wood, but the cellular material is far more resistant to fire and impervious to rot and termites. Workers can trim and cut it to fit on the site without needing any special tools. Moulding and other finishing pieces are also available to complete your Northern Virginia siding. Check out dozens of different colors to find trim that complements or contrasts with your favorite vinyl or board siding. Once you mix and match the various sofft covers and other components of a complete exterior, Nova Exteriors can roll in and get ready to start the installation.
