Available in a broad array of textures and colors, aluminum casings provide a low maintenance and durable trim solution. Available in hundreds of colors, aluminum casing trim is economical and provides a durable, low-maintenance finish. This solution involves bending and wrapping aluminum trim coil around existing or new wood casing trim on windows, eaves, gutter lines, posts, entry doors and garage doors. Aluminum trim is available in smooth and wood grain finishes.

Vinyl Siding by Home Visions Inc.
Siding is your home as the appropriate jacket is to your body. Vinyl siding protects your home from the elements, prevents you from having to perform annual maintenance and increases the resale value of your home more than any other single home improvement project.
Through the years vinyl siding has evolved considerably. Think of it this way, we went from caves to huts. Then we moved to wood structures and brick. Due to high cost and lack of durability the focus shifted to soft siding such as asphalt and fiberboard. Then along came aluminum that provided homeowners with minimal seams, low maintenance, durability and at the time, a new modern look.
Through the years, we have discovered disadvantages to the aluminum product. For instance, it dents easily. Aluminum is a high conductive material therefore it would promote colder walls. Repairs were costly when the siding was damaged and oxidation occurs over time which fades the aluminum siding.
Today we use vinyl siding. The big advantages to a high quality vinyl siding is that it is virtually maintenance free and will not fade or oxidize. Vinyl siding is made through a heat bonded Co-Extruded process. Color is at the base and the top is a full 10% capstock which is essentially a special coating on the surface of the siding that prevents fading and reflects harmful sun rays, while also strengthening the vinyl so that it will last year after year.
Though some days our work is affected by the weather you will find our crews working hard all year round. Working through the extremes that weather brings is part of the job in exterior remodeling, but it can create some tricky situations.
Take caulk for instance. Caulk is a key part of pretty much any work done on the exterior of your home. From windows, to siding, to roofing, and gutters, caulk is the sealant the holds everything together. Our crews use the best exterior sealants available, all specifically designed for performance against the elements for years to come. Despite this, even the best products can be rendered unusable in extreme temperatures. Ever tried to use caulk that has been left in the cold? One person compared it to trying to get those first few sips out of a really frozen milk-shake. Yea, not very much fun.
Enter the "hot-box".
This is one creative way our crews came up with to keep caulk at the proper temperature when the weather outside turns frigid. A small single oven burner is placed inside a box with enough room to tuck enough caulk for the day’s work. (DON’T NOT TRY THIS AT HOME – THIS SITUATION IS CONSTANTLY MONITORED BY OUR PROFESSIONALS) This crafty bit of engineering saves a lot of headaches and time on install day and is one of the creative reasons that our crews can be effective installing outside year round. Curious about how siding or windows are installed? Have a concern about roofing? We would love to tell you more!

If you don’t prepare — which may mean “repair” — your walls properly before the job, your new vinyl siding will not be attractive. And that’s putting it mildly. Residing a wavy wall will give you nothing more than a newly sided wavy wall. Putting new siding over wood rot will only cover the problem: underneath all that lovely new cladding is a rotting frame.
