OAKS, PA--(Marketwire - Jun 27, 2011) - Over 90 million homes throughout North America have aluminum or vinyl siding for exterior protection and are therefore affected by the chalky, white bleed from aluminum, caused by oxidation, and the pitted surfaces produced by airborne pollutants.
CertaPro franchise owner, Arthur Dyck of Waterloo, Ontario, explains that "for vinyl, 15 to 20 years of sunlight often fade a once beautiful beige color to a blotchy pink. Mildew, algae and dirt also contribute to a sub-par appearance. But, often that damage is only skin deep."
For exterior house painting, both aluminum and vinyl can be restored to 'better than new' appearance with a properly applied top coating of quality exterior paint, and at a cost that is typically 25-30% of replacement siding. Repainting either material will extend its useful life many more years and give a great appearance with the same or a new house paint colors palette.

Homeowners can almost double the lifespan of a siding through proper cleaning and paint, and, when working with CertaPro, can spend closer to $2,500 instead of $7,500 to $10,000 for installation of a new siding.
