Spray on Siding

Spray on siding is the siding solution you’ve been looking for if you never want to have to paint your house again. Made from a special mix of resins and polymers, liquid siding is a vinyl like compound that can be sprayed directly onto your home. It provides all the protection of paint and other siding options, yet lasts for thirty years or more (hence no re-painting!) and won’t substantially alter the look of your home like more traditional vinyl and aluminum siding materials can. If you’re tired of regular paint jobs or the maintenance and upkeep that comes with vinyl and aluminum siding materials, spray on siding is the answer.

Never Paint Again!

Perhaps the greatest benefit of this siding material is the fact that one application lasts decades longer than traditional paint jobs. It covers better than paint and retains a freshly painted look longer as well. In respect to other forms of siding, liquid siding doesn’t require any of the unsightly nails and hangers that traditional siding does, and you won’t have to hassle with loose, sagging or damaged pieces of siding down the road either. Add to that the fact that the liquid nature of the material makes it possible to choose from literally thousands of color options (aluminum and vinyl siding typically comes in only a handful of colors) and it’s clear why this innovative siding option is gaining steam as a favorite of homeowners everywhere. Basically you’ve got the design benefits of paint with the durability and longevity of synthetic siding materials. How can you go wrong?

Sticky Stuff

Another top selling point is the fact that it can be applied to just about any surface. Successful applications have been applied to wood, stucco, vinyl, galvanized steel, aluminum, brick and concrete surfaces. In short, whatever you’ve got, spray on siding should do the trick, and you won’t have to mess with removing your pre-existing siding in order to have it applied! Once it is applied, it is guaranteed not to crack, split, bubble, blister or flake off, regardless of the sub-surface, and it naturally resists dirt and grime better than traditional paint.

Protect Your Investment

The liquid siding industry was plagued early on by a series of irresponsible application companies who neglected proper preparation steps and application procedures, resulting in a handful of very vocal, dissatisfied customers. Further innovations in the siding material itself along with the rise of an army of reputable application companies have mostly relegated such problems to the past; however, it’s important when you choose spray on siding for your home that you ask for—and check—references to ensure you’ll be getting your money’s worth. Also, any company worth their salt will offer a 100% guarantee on their product and service, with extensive warranties on the siding itself (warranties of up to thirty years are not uncommon). Demand these concessions from your contractor and think twice about hiring them if they shy away from guaranteeing their work or their product.

    What is the cost? Sounds very enticing but what are the downfalls?

    What are the costs? How long does it take to apply? Who can apply it? Does it mildew like my current siding? What is the upkeep?

    I had liquid siding put on my house 10 yrs ago. The cost was very fair. To this day it still looks as good as it did from day 1, I haven’t had to do any upkeep and the bugs don’t like it.

    Liquid spray on polymers…do you have an idea of the cost and the time required for prep and application ….

    We had liquid siding applied twice. In 2002 originally & then again after hurricane in 2004. After another 14 years, we havie rotted wood all over & very faded paint on the West side. Do not use Liquid Siding.

    We had Liquid Siding applied to our house (t-111) and had all of the promises listed above. They had to come back several times over the next couple of years to replace sheets of t-111 that had rotted and repaint. They finally said they would not stand by their product and not to call them again. They refused to refund our five figure payment. This is not a trustworthy company. I had dealings with the owner, not a franchisee. I continue to replace rotting wood with their product on it. I am probably going to housewrap and put on Hardi Board.

    Do not use on wood siding!!

    We had liquid siding put on about 10 years ago and have had a problem with wood rot on the T111 for the past 5 years. We will have to completely reside a 4,000 sq ft house. Cannot find the manufacture.

    I need my house painted and I’ve heard of spray on siding which sounds like it may be a better bet than regular paint. I would like a quote

    We had liquid siding put on about 10 years ago and have had a problem with wood rot on the T111 for the past 5 years [likely the T1 11 was damp in application of the liquid siding this wasn’t the fault of the wood OR the material, it was a fault in the application.] We will have to completely reside a 4,000 sq ft house. Cannot find the manufacture. [With a business the business could have merchandised great & their product could have been great, but that doesn’t mean their product appliers OR processes were good, AND this could mean with work in time they can improve things, but if they DO NOT TEST APPLICATIONS WITH TIME TO ALLOW QUALITY TO BE LEARNED IN APPLICATIONS & with TYPES of MATERIALS & with TYPES OF MATERIAL & OVER TIME, they will fail as a business.]

    [But what product did Marie use? AND what application process was used.

    At times many people do not read the instructions, and at times people that read the instruction do not follow the instructions correctly either.

    Often products mention temperatures to be above OR between AND this may not mean atmospheric temperatures, but surface temperatures, humidity levels to be under.

    Painters working in the correct atmosphere may still need to work in different locations with those correct conditions because of various surfaces and the needs with those. Like applying paint on the south in the middle of the day IS BAD, when the sun was out all day in the evening after the sun sets while the times are dry can be better. OR in the morning if the night was dry and the humidity level was correct. AND this is super true with any type of liquid siding.]

    Is liquid vinyl siding good to put on top of old vinyl siding that you would like to spruce up and make look like new? The old siding is 19 years old and has been repaired. We couldn’t get an exact match so it has a patchwork appearance.
