7 Benefits of Choosing Vinyl Siding
The exterior siding of your home is designed to protect the interior and exterior of your home against the elements. Many homeowners may find the siding options overwhelming, but one of the most common choices is vinyl siding because it provides attractive and long-lasting protection. If you are considering vinyl siding for your home, here are seven of the benefits you can look forward to.
One of the most popular reasons many homeowners choose vinyl siding is the cost. Vinyl siding is typically much more affordable than other options, such as wood or brick. Along with being extremely affordable, the low-maintenance cost of energy efficient materials also makes it extremely cost effective.
Durable and Long-Lasting
Vinyl is one of the most durable types of siding available, second only to stone or brick. It is made to withstand high temperatures, high winds, hail and other extreme climates. Vinyl also doesn’t rust, warp or corrode. And it deters against pests, such as termites. One of the best benefits of vinyl siding is that it is moisture resistant, so, unlike wood, it will not rot or split.
Another great benefit of vinyl siding is its need for little maintenance. There is no need to scrape, paint or apply a stain year after year; you will simply need to give it a gentle cleaning once a year with a water hose, brush and cleaning solution. You may also occasionally power wash your vinyl siding to remove a buildup of dirt and mud.
Using insulated vinyl siding will help your home stay green. Insulated vinyl siding works like a blanket of protection over the studs to help keep your home warmer during the winter and cooler during the summer; saving you money on energy costs all year round. In addition, the use of insulated vinyl siding is often used as an allowable energy tax credit.
Improves Curb Appeal
Whether you need a quick way to improve your home for selling, or you simply want a new look for the exterior of your home, vinyl siding is a great option. It does not chip, flake or peel, which helps the exterior of your home to look well-maintained. Vinyl siding may also help to increase the resale value of your home because of its longevity and durability.
When it comes to vinyl siding, homeowners have an extensive variety colors and textures to choose from, including vinyl that looks like other materials, such as wood, brick or stone. For a more finished look, you can also choose to use various color combinations for the door frames and windows.
Quick and Easy Installation
The materials are lightweight and come with pre-drilled holes for installing directly on the studs, which allows for a quick and easy installation. The quick installation time will minimize the amount of time you will be inconvenienced during the installation process.
