Reasons to Consider Vinyl Siding


When you are thinking about replacing the siding on your home, there are many reasons that having a professional replace it with vinyl siding is a great idea. There are many advantages to vinyl siding, including a wider variety of designs and styles than many other siding materials. In addition, vinyl brings with it a very low cost in terms of both installation and materials with a high return on investment, and a durable, low maintenance option that can withstand many types of weather conditions.

Options in Terms of Design, Style, and Color

When you install vinyl siding in, you are opting for a material that has many different options in terms of design, style, and color. You can get vinyl siding in a nearly any color imaginable, and there are many different styles. Some styles that you can choose include clapboard or Dutch lap, vinyl that looks like cedar shingles, and even brick, wood, and log vinyl siding. The different styles of vinyl you can choose from will of course come with their own costs, other advantages, and features. There are even more applications and finishes that you can choose from with vinyl siding. For example, you can choose a glossy or matte surface, textured or smooth. Some vinyl siding will provide more insulation to your home than others will, which obviously will make your home that more efficient.

Different styles of siding

Extremely Cost Effective

Perhaps one of the primary reasons why vinyl siding is so popular these days is that it is so extremely cost effective. Vinyl is one of the most cost-effective siding materials available on the market, even though there are many different price points even within the vinyl family. Your new vinyl siding will also provide you with a very high return on investment. People who install new vinyl siding on their home often report a return on investment of at least 80 percent or higher when it comes time to sell their home. As mentioned above, your new siding can even make your home much more energy efficient, which will save you on heating bills month to month.

Cost Less for You to Maintain

In addition to the return on investment and the initial lower cost, vinyl will also likely cost less for you to maintain and provides an option that is impermeable to many different types of weather conditions. For example, if you live in an area that is prone to frequent temperature changes, many types of siding material will require additional maintenance to counteract this phenomenon. Not so when you choose vinyl siding, however. Vinyl is an excellent option for those who do not want to be constantly maintaining their siding every time there is a storm or extreme heat. Vinyl is resistant to fading from the sun, and is strong against windstorms and rain. Other than occasionally cleaning it off with your run of the mill garden hose, your siding will not require a lot of maintenance either. Other siding options such as brick, stucco, and stone will need to be repainted or otherwise refinished every year, but vinyl siding will not require this.
