Why Mastic – Intro

Mastic Vinyl Siding on Home's front porchVinyl siding is the most widely used cladding option for American homes today. Homeowners are attracted to vinyl siding for it low maintenance properties, rugged durability and low-cost when compared to other siding options. Vinyl siding is a cost-effective alternative to wood siding and fiber cement siding. Replacing your home’s old siding with new vinyl materials will deliver considerable ‘bang-for-the-buck’ improvement while driving up the overall home value.

When properly installed, new vinyl house siding will transform a home’s curb appeal and will look great for decades. However, The quality of vinyl siding ranges significantly from manufacturer to manufacturer. To ensure that our homeowners receive the best possible product, Hatch Homes has exclusively partnered with Mastic Vinyl Siding. Hatch is an Elite Preferred Contractor with Mastic. The manufacturer recommends Hatch Homes to any homeowner interested in having vinyl siding installed on their home. Hatch Home is also a Certified Vinyl Siding Installer through the VSI (Vinyl Siding Institute). The VSI oversees both the vinyl siding manufacturing and installation industries. To become a certified as an installer through the VSI, an exterior remodeling company must undergo continual product and installation training. Certified installers must also take and pass examinations centered around best practices, building codes, and proper installation techniques.

Mastic Vinyl Siding offers an array of colors, profiles, thicknesses, exposures and product options to meet any homeowners project goals or desired aesthetic.

Mastic Home Exteriors, owned by PlyGem, is the single largest manufacturer of vinyl siding in the country. No vinyl siding manufacturer continually invests in the improvement of their product lines as much as Mastic. As a result, Mastic manufactures the highest quality vinyl siding available on the market today.

Here’s how they are different:

Color selection

Mastic offers more color options than any other vinyl siding brand. To complement their siding product lines, Mastic also manufactures soffit, trim, aluminum coil and other accessories needed for a vinyl siding installation. This provides homeowners with a complete exterior solution with matching colors. This differs from other vinyl siding manufacturers in that there are slight color differences between product lines. This will lead to a less than desirable appearance once the project is completed.

Solar defense capabilities

Like any exterior building component, vinyl siding is negatively affected by prolonged exposure to the sun‘s UV radiation. Any vinyl siding will fade over time. However, inferior products will warp crack and split over time. Mastic’s newly developed Solar Defense Technology allows their material to withstand premature product deterioration that results from constant exposure to the sun and heat. Also, this technology allows mastic to deliver darker and bolder siding color options than any other brands of vinyl siding. Before Mastic’s Solar Defense Technology, dark blues, grays, greens, and reds were limited to James Hardie Fiber Cement or wood siding. These colors are all now available in vinyl for homeowners across the country who choose Mastic Home Exteriors.

Product options

Mastic makes over 20 different product lines of vinyl siding. These product lines range from horizontal lap siding, shingle siding, board and batten siding, foam insulated siding, soffit, and even some hardboard siding. The multiple product lines provide homeowners with the flexibility needed to get the perks that are important to them at a price point that makes financial sense. It also enables those interested in vinyl siding the ability to customize their home’s exterior with multiple colors, siding types, and design options. Homeowners are able to create a truly unique exterior at an affordable price.
