Home Siding (Vinyl) delivers the warm, quality appearance of wood without the costly, time-consuming maintenance and repairs.

The Home Doctor, a home siding contractor, offers vinyl siding that is manufactured with proprietary designs and ingredients to deliver greater durability, rigidity and wind resistance; more attractive, fade-resistant colors; more authentic touches and historical details. Vinyl Home Siding means eliminating the hassle and expense of repainting your house every five years or so. Besides saving work, vinyl siding can save you money with energy efficient options.
