Replacement Siding — Here’s Why Vinyl Might Be Best
We know how more choices than ever before when it comes to decorating, finishing, and protecting our home, and that’s definitely the case when you’re talking about something like siding. It literally doesn’t matter what kind of look you're going for, you can find it — engineered wood, brick, fiber-cement, metal siding, glass, stone, vinyl, stucco … We could continue for some time yet.
Vinyl siding is a very popular choice for modern homes, and there are many reasons behind that. Here’s a rundown of why vinyl siding could be the perfect fit for your home -
1 - Vinyl is great for all weather types.
It doesn’t matter what kind of climate you live in, vinyl can handle the job. It’s great at insulating your home if you live in an area where the temperatures plummet and the heating is on for close to six months of the year. At the same time, vinyl siding can also help to cool air in the building during the hotter times.
2 - Vinyl siding can help to make your home more energy-efficient.
Because of the many beneficial properties that this siding material offers, your home will be more energy-efficient. If you’re keeping hot air in during the winter, and not letting it escape, you won't need to have the heating on for as long, or on such a high temperature. During the summer, vinyl siding will stop the cooler air conditioning-air from escaping, meaning that you’ll need to have it turned on for a smaller length of time.
3 - More energy-efficient = friendlier on your bank balance.
One of the best benefits of installing energy-efficient vinyl siding? An energy-efficient roof will also have economical advantages. If you don't need to have the air conditioning unit or heating on for as long, or turned up to full power, you’ll be saving a small fortune in energy costs over the course of a year.
4 - Vinyl siding is inexpensive to buy and install.
The materials are fairly inexpensive to come by, and most roofing or home improvement contractors will come fully equipped to cope with vinyl siding-related queries. Being a light and easy-to-work-with material, labor costs will also be reduced.
5 - It also retains its value well.
If you want a home improvement project that’ll add market value to your home in the long run, vinyl siding is definitely a smart choice. Homes with this siding type have been shown to hold their value for longer than others (when well-maintained), and it has also shown to be a very cost-effective, long-term investment. If you were to remodel one of the internal rooms in your home (as a home improvement alternative), it would depreciate much quicker.
6 - Vinyl siding requires minimal maintenance.
All parts of your home require maintenance at some point or another, so we can’t say that vinyl siding is maintenance-free, but it’s definitely not as high-maintenance as other materials, especially brick (and painted brick). Vinyl can be cleaned easily, doesn't tend to fall prey to birds (including woodpeckers), and is more durable. You will save money in maintenance and upkeep costs alone by switching to vinyl siding. After hearing all of this, it’s easy to understand why vinyl has become a popular home improvement choice for many property owners, but it is still a big decision to make.
