For decades, in the home siding industry, aluminum was the dominant material. Houses all over the US up until the early 1960’s used nothing but aluminum which was fairly expensive. Vinyl siding came on the scene and was still in its infancy stages and gained a bad reputation as being inferior to the more expensive aluminum. It had a tendency to crack and sag and deteriorate. In all fairness, early vinyl home siding was indeed inferior because of these characteristics. With the advancement of vinyl plastics and manufacturing techniques, though, it has become the superior choice in over 40% of homes due to its durability and versatile nature. If you have not upgraded your home with vinyl siding, here is what you are missing out on.
SAVING A LOT OF MONEY
If you are trying to save money on home improvement, but don’t want to sacrifice quality, then vinyl home siding is your perfect match. Vinyl siding costs thousands less than wood siding and can be customized to just about any style. You can cut costs even more by installing the siding yourself as many websites have dedicated home siding installation how-to videos.
HAVING YOUR OWN STYLE
This is not your grandfather’s vinyl siding. Modern vinyl home siding products come in hundred of colors, textures and style cues to match your specific tastes. Do you like the look of Cedar but don’t want the weathering? Vinyl siding can be crafted to look just like cedar shakes and stay looking new for decades with minimal maintenance. Vinyl replacements are so accurate it can fool the most astute contractor and the cleaning is so easy. Even if you like retro designs like Victorian scallops, there is a vinyl replacement that looks exactly like these styles.
GETTING LONGEVITY FROM YOUR HOME SIDING
Since vinyl siding is made to stand up to the most extreme elements, there is nothing that can ruin your vinyl siding. High wind, hail or hot summer heat will not alter its look. With many installations, you can get a lifetime warranty on your home siding that is prorated but also transfers to the next owner of the house.
HAVING GREAT LOOKING SIDING WITHOUT ANY WORK
If you are looking for low maintenance home siding, vinyl is as low as it comes. It is not only resistant to termites and things like rot; it keeps its original look for a very long time. That is a fantastic return on your investment, and without having to maintain it with anything other than a water hose cleaning once a year. Once you invest in vinyl home siding, you are done there is no maintaining it, it maintains itself.
SAVING MONEY ON COOLING AND HEATING COSTS
Insulated vinyl home siding prevents warm air from inside from leaking through the wall studs of interior walls. Vinyl siding essentially places a blanket that protects the studs and keeps the house from leaking, keeping the house warmer in winter and cooler in summer. There are also tax credits you may be available for as a result of adding the siding to your home.
