Arlington Heights is one of the suburbs of the greater Chicago area, and is also subject to the weather of the Midwest. For those who don't know, Arlington Heights is host to a large community of affluent families and business that cater to the needs of those who work in Chicago, but do not want to live in the city proper. We have a number of really nice parks and recreational areas for families and friends to enjoy and during the summer, my family has awesome bar-b-cues for our friends and neighbors.
I found out that there are some types of siding that last better during tempestuous weather than others. My vinyl siding did not fare as well as my neighbors siding. I had Premier Windows come out and remedy that for me. Now I have nice aluminum siding which is far more sturdy, although the only draw back is that when it hails, you hear a constant ping sound coming from the house. But, I would rather that than have a house with large dents in it.
