We often tell our customers that the appearance and functionality of the materials you use on the outside of your home are critical to its value. That’s why when you’re considering whether you want to reside your home or not, that you take a look at all the available options out there – and trust us – there’s a lot!
There are so many materials to choose from and all come with significant benefits and detractors. In our experience though – it’s been vinyl siding that’s been the most popular and there’s good reason for that. Here are a few reasons why vinyl is so popular and how it can help your home. Let’s jump right in!
Lots of materials are supposed to be low maintenance, but few actually are. Vinyl truly shines in this case. Its surface is such that color won’t peep, chip or flake. In the event that you do get some discoloration from dirt, algae and the like, it’s easy to clean. Whatever maintenance needs to be done, is done quickly and easily.
Vinyl Is a plastic and just like any other plastic – it’s not effected in the least by moisture. That’s especially good news if you live in a damp, cold or wet region of the country. And unlike metal and wood – it won’t shrink, warp, rust or rot. Ditto for mold and fungus, which will also save you money.
Everyone knows how bad pest problems can become – particularly termites and carpenter ants. Vinyl siding keeps them out and keep the integrity of the structure of your home in-tact. This comes in especially handy when you live in a rural area where critters and bugs are commonplace.
Easy to install
Vinyl is one of the easiest improvements that can be made to a home. It’s lightweight and is cut into long sections that mostly snap into place. The result is a home being covered quickly, which significantly cuts down on labor costs to get it installed.
It’s good for the environment
Vinyl won’t rot or decompose and can be recycled. Leftover siding and pieces can be disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner and then repurposed for future use. Additionally, it doesn’t need to be repainted – and certain types of paint can emit some not-so-great gasses. So choosing vinyl is good for the environment, too!
