If the roof is responsible for protecting your home from the harsh elements coming from above your home, it’s the siding that provides protection against everything coming from the sides. Your siding must be made of something tough and functional while also enhancing the look of your home, so what siding material should you choose? According to experts, you should go for vinyl siding.
Lightweight, Not Flimsy
Some people think that vinyl siding is a flimsy material because it is lightweight compared to other options. However, vinyl is actually very durable for something that weighs so little. Vinyl is virtually immune to rust unlike metal siding, and it does not suffer from problems like splintering or rotting like wood does.
When properly installed by a siding and roofing company like us, vinyl siding can last for a long time with very little maintenance. Because moisture is not an issue with this material, it’s easier to clean, and you can afford to perform fewer regular checkups to look or any signs of moisture damage. There’s also no need to keep coating it with anti-moisture treatments, and you don’t have to worry about having to repaint it every few years.
A Cost-Efficient Option
Cost efficiency is vinyl siding’s greatest strength. Despite its affordable cost, vinyl has a decent lifespan, which means you’re less likely to spend on a fresh set of siding over the decades. Aside from the savings you get from it being low maintenance, vinyl siding’s thermal resistance also makes it a great option for blocking out external temperatures, improving your homes’ insulation and helping you save thousands of dollars on energy costs in the long run.
Because it’s easy to mold vinyl into different shapes, manufacturers have developed vinyl siding with all kinds of finishes. This means you won’t have to think about potentially ruining the look of your traditionally-styled home with smooth, boring vinyl boards. There are options that are made to resemble brick surfaces and other conventional siding materials. Vinyl is also available in a wide variety of color options, so you can pick any color that would match your roof or new replacement windows to enhance your homes’ curb appeal.
