Vinyl siding is like the “comeback kid” of building materials. Back in the 1950’s, vinyl siding was only known for its shortcomings, but it has come a long way since then. Now, over 32 percent of new homes are built with vinyl siding. Why? Here are 3 advantages modern vinyl siding has to offer.
One advantage of vinyl siding is how much it costs. It is not only cheaper to install, but it also saves you money on heating and cooling. Many types of vinyl siding are now built to insulate your home as well as decorate it. The other cost benefit ties into upkeep. With other siding options, you have to re-paint or clean the side of your house in some special way. Vinyl siding is cheap and easy to clean, so you can keep your home looking fresh and stay on budget.
Vinyl siding has the ability to withstand numerous environmental pressures including hail. Because of this, it lasts a long time (20-30 years, to be exact), making it well worth the investment.
When it comes to types of vinyl siding, there’s a wide selection to choose from. Whether you’re looking for something modern or traditional, there are numerous colors and design options to match the style of your home. You can even get vinyl siding that looks like wood or stone!
