One of the largest brands in the home siding world is Georgia Gulf Corporation, owners of Craneboard. They’ve been designing and installing Craneboard siding for years with thousands of happy customers. Their siding is available all across the United States and can be used easily for your home. With a vast array of designs and colors, Craneboard could easily be your next siding of choice.
But what makes this siding so special? Let’s take a look at the features and styles to determine whether or not Craneboard truly deserves the universal praise it seems to get. Is it the perfect siding for you, or is it just a more expensive variation of vinyl?
Special Features of Craneboard Siding
The first question we’re looking to answer is why Craneboard siding? Here is a list of some of the features offered by this brand that you might not be able to get with other, standard styles of siding.
Each of their designs offers Chromatix technology which provides a unique standard of protection against the elements. Craneboard siding offers much more insulation than brick, vinyl, engineered wood, and cement sidings.
Crane Board provides a plethora of color and design options so that your home can be unique and stand out amongst the crowd. The designs are stunning and the colors approachable – your home’s exterior will look amazing with the various choices available to you.
The fiber materials used to make the siding are much more breathable and offer room to expand and shrink as the weather changes. Many kinds of wood can expand and grow when needed, but brick, cement, and vinyl are all stagnate which can lead to cracks and damages.
Finding the Perfect Price
The installation process and pricing of Craneboard siding can be relatively cheap, but they could also break the bank. It all depends on who is doing the installation and where you’re having your siding installed. Official prices of Craneboard siding range from $3.50 to $10.50 per square foot. This price includes the cost of labor and installation.
For comparison, your standard vinyl siding costs anywhere from $3-$12 for the same space. So, it all depends on your home and where you’re having your siding installed. The main difference between vinyl and Craneboard is that vinyl will need much more maintenance than Craneboard. The fiber materials can withstand the elements much longer and will not need replacing for some time.
Additional Colors Options
All Craneboard products comes pre-painted so that you don’t have to worry about the extra cost and process. They offer a wide array of colors for homeowners to choose from which almost guarantees you’ll be satisfied with the options they have available.
I am just trying to find two panels of Craneboard T3 ( I believe, it is 3 six inch levels on each panel.) siding in the 12’1″ length that one of my renters ruined by placing a barbecue too close to the wall and melting the vinyl. I have checked every local place I can find to no avail. Just wondering if you would know anyone who could sell me just the two panels in the color Pearl. I appreciate any leads you can give me.
I am about to get new siding for my house through the services of Power (former Power Home Remodeling Group).
When I called them to know about the differences between virgin vinyl and recycled-material vinyl, they said their siding comes from your company.
Here are my questions:
1. How would you compare the long-term performance of recycled vinyl with the virgin one?
2. Do you carry the recycled version of vinyl siding? If you don’t, why?
3. What are the alternatives I can find to virgin vinyl (i.e. straight from crude oil)?
4. Do you have good source of information to compare vinyl siding and fiber cement siding?
This is from an environmental activist whose main battle is to get off of fossil fuels. I can’t bring myself to cover my own home from a crude-oil product.
ANY HELP WILL BE VERY MUCH APPRECIATED!
Thank you so much in advance.
