Ensuring that your home looks and performs its best relies on several key features. Your siding is perhaps one of the most significant. Siding can make up the majority of your home’s exterior; how well it works and how good it looks can have a substantial impact on your home as a whole. There are several materials available for use when you’re choosing your next siding, but vinyl should be one of your primary choices. Vinyl siding offers a wide variety of benefits that you’ll enjoy for many years to come.
One of the first aspects of vinyl siding to consider is that it is incredibly durable and one of the most low maintenance options. When cared for properly vinyl siding can last up to 50 years. Even with inconsistent maintenance, when installed correctly it will last for many, many years. Second, vinyl is incredibly low maintenance; it can’t rot or rust, doesn’t need painting and is mostly resistant to dirt and grime. Occasional cleaning may be, but it is not always necessary.
The primary function of your home’s siding is to keep your home free of moisture and safe from the elements. For many other materials, heavy precipitation and humidity can cause vulnerability over time. Vinyl siding, on the other hand, has been shown to have significantly better draining and rain-screening capabilities. Additionally, some vinyl siding is rated for wind speeds of up to 200mph, making it versatile and effective in all types of weather.
Thanks to the way it is manufactured, vinyl can be altered to fit almost any size, shape, style, and color. This versatility goes even further as newer technology also adds the potential for texture to be added that can make vinyl look like wood and other materials. This customization is highly valuable as it allows you to achieve any look at a lower price and without the need for labor-intensive finishes or paint jobs.
When looking at the initial prices of the materials alone vinyl siding is much more affordable than almost any other option. Cedar shakes, in particular, will cost up to two-and-a-half times more than a vinyl alternative. Past this initial price, the long term and labor costs of vinyl siding are lower as well. Because it is cheap and easy to ship, and fast to install your prices for shipping material and your installation prices will be lower.
