Properly installed and well-maintained siding is needed in order to protect your home from the outside elements. Of all the siding materials to choose from, vinyl siding is the most used in the United States. There’s a few reasons why vinyl siding is considered the top siding material among homeowners.
For the homeowner that likes to have choices when remodeling their home, vinyl siding offers you the most variety and versatility. With over 350 certified colors, vinyl siding can provide you with the exact color you’ve been searching for. Once the color is selected, you can choose to place the materials horizontally, vertically, or use patterns such as fish scales, scallops, or shingles.
Lack of Maintenance
Not only does vinyl siding offer a wide variety of colors, but the color is extremely resistant to fading. This means you won’t have to go outside with cans of paint for a refresh after a few years. If that doesn’t get you excited then the lack of maintenance needed to maintain the siding will! Simply spray down the siding with the hose and wipe it dry once or twice per year.
Not only will you save money because of the lack of maintenance needed, but the actual cost of the material is the least expensive of any siding material. Fiber-cement siding and stucco can cost double more than double, while materials like wood, brick, and stone can cost anywhere from triple to ten times the price of vinyl.
Vinyl siding is the most popular siding material in America not for one reason, but because of a long list of benefits that are hard to ignore.
