Painting of House Siding

Wood siding—planks, shakes, shingles or clapboard—is still the most common type and is generally thought of as the most sophisticated look for higher-end or historic homes. Depending on how it's forested, wood can be a renewable resource, too, and therefore a good “green” option. But wood is also the most vulnerable to insects, moisture
 and the elements. Swings in temperature and humidity levels can warp wood, sunlight bakes it and depletes its resins, and water perhaps damages wood the most. Damaged wood leads to bubbling, crumbling and cracking paint, Kellogg's Painting uses the latest advances in the painting industry, using 100% acrylic paints, primers, and proper preparationwill protect and restore your most valuable investment. Lack of proper preparation and cheap materials cause your paint to fail. Acrylics are flexible, UV protected, mildew resistant, and retain color the longest.
 
Other types of siding include plastic (vinyl or weatherboard), metal (aluminum or steel), masonry (brick, stone, stone veneer and stucco) and fiber cement (a laminate made from a mixture of cement, fiberboard, sand and other materials). The least expensive options, vinyl and aluminum, aren't as vulnerable to the elements as wood, but their color and condition will deteriorate over time, too, requiring paint or replacement. Vinyl, in particular, tends to bend, crack and fade. Aluminum fares better and has the added advantage of being recyclable. Kellogg's Painting can paint and restore your siding whether it's wood, vinyl, aluminum, or concrete. A paint job cost a fraction of the cost to re-side a home.
 
Even if vinyl or aluminum siding looks faded and old, you may not need to replace it. Many premium acrylic paints adhere so well that they can go over faded vinyl or aluminum siding.

Kellogg's Painting uses paint that will withstand the rain, snow and other elements of the climate in upstate New York. Only high-performing (and more expensive) paints, like high-end options by Sherwin Williams work on aluminum or vinyl because they are able to expand and contract in the heat with the siding.
