New siding from Gentek can lend an elegant finish to your home while also reducing upkeep and annual maintenance. For nearly 50 years, Gentek has been helping millions of Americans create homes that match their dreams and fit their budgets. And with a full range of siding, soffit, fascia, trim and decorative accessories, we have everything you need to design a beautiful finish for your home.
Of course, if your home has special problems – for example, warped clapboards that have to be replaced or lead-based paint that has to be scraped and sanded off – the cost of painting can become truly staggering.
New siding for your home can be a smart investment. For example, according to Remodeling magazine’s “2009 – 10 Cost vs. Value Report,” the national average of the cost recouped for vinyl siding is 79.9% for midrange projects.
Compare the ongoing costs of painting every three to five years to a one-time investment in siding. For most homeowners the conclusion is obvious – new siding can offer better long-term value.
Gentek offers a broad range of vinyl siding products to fit every design and budget. Choose from a variety of profiles in Dutch Lap, Clapboard, and Board and Batten with textured finishes and a wide array of colors, including classic hues, variegated and darker Designer Colors.
You’ll also appreciate vinyl siding’s easy-care upkeep. Durable and dent-resistant, each vinyl panel is solid color through and through, so it never needs painting or staining. Vinyl siding won’t chip, peel, dent or rot, so you can forget costly repairs and time-consuming maintenance. Just rinse occasionally with a garden hose to restore the siding’s like-new beauty.
For added peace of mind, Gentek vinyl sidings are backed by strong lifetime limited warranties,* ensuring excellent quality and value for your home.
Exterior improvements such as the installation of new siding also make a home more attractive on the market. According to a real estate agent interviewed by Remodeling, “Things like new siding and new windows will not add dollar for dollar value…(but) they will cause the house to sell quicker for more money.”
Choosing insulated siding for your home can add even greater value and market appeal, because it enhances thermal performance and energy savings, as well as softens outside noise for a quieter home.

If you have special installation concerns – such as running vinyl siding along a natural stone chimney, for example – talk to your contractor. It’s likely that he has handled a similar installation in the past.
The relationship you have with your contractor is extremely important. Choose someone whose skills you trust, someone qualified to perform the task required, and someone you can work with comfortably.
Do not rub vigorously. This may create glossy areas over the siding finish. For hard-to-remove dirt, such as soot and grime found in industrial areas, wipe the siding down with a solution that’s recommended by the manufacturer. If you wash the entire house, start at the bottom and work up to the top, as less streaking will result. It is important that immediately following all washing operations, the entire surface be thoroughly rinsed with fresh water from a garden hose.
