Vinyl siding made its debut on American homes in the late ‘50s. This was a time when most homes used aluminum siding and the early returns on vinyl were not very good. The early applications of vinyl siding tended to crack and sag. However, modern manufacturing techniques have made vinyl siding into one of the best choices for your siding needs. In fact, it is estimated that over 32% of new home constructions choose vinyl for their siding needs. What are the benefits of vinyl siding? Here are four of the biggest ones.
Vinyl is a cost effective option for your siding needs, costing significantly less money than wood siding. No matter whether you want to do your own installation or have the professionals come out to do it, vinyl will save you a bundle on your overall costs. And its ability to insulate your home well can save you some more money on your utility bills!
Vinyl siding comes in a wealth of colors, textures, and profiles to suit any taste. No matter what your dream exterior looks like, chances are good that there’s a siding out there to meet your needs which is made out of vinyl!
Vinyl is an incredibly hardy material, and siding made from it is built to withstand the elements. Mother Nature will throw heavy winds, hail, and many other things at your home, but your vinyl siding will stand the test of time. It even resists excess moisture so you won’t have to worry about it rotting or corroding over time. And, in many cases, manufacturers of vinyl siding provide lifetime warranties for their products.
4. Virtually Maintenance Free
Vinyl is, in essence, the least needy material for siding when it comes to keeping it maintained. Pests don’t like it and it doesn’t rot so you can rest easy knowing it will keep its original qualities for a long time. And it retains its color well so you won’t have to worry about repainting your home every so often. Usually, hosing down the siding once a year is all that is required to keep it looking sharp.
