Vinyl siding has become one of the most popular materials to use for the exterior of your home. This is because of the several benefits vinyl siding has when compared to other traditional home exteriors. Below, we have outlined just a few of the best advantages of using vinyl siding.
Installing vinyl siding on your home will run you anywhere between $2,00 and $8,500 for a 1,200 square foot house. Compare this to installing wooden siding on a similar size house and it will cost between $6,500 and $10,000. And, if you wanted to save even more money, it is very possible to install vinyl siding yourself.
There are countless options for the way vinyl siding can look including different textures and colors. Vinyl siding can even mimic the look of other materials like wooden shakes or Victorian scallops.
Vinyl siding is made to last and can be pretty durable in the elements. The siding can withstand heavy winds and even hail. Plus, vinyl siding is water resistant so you don't have to worry about mold or wood rotting. Most vinyl sidings come with a 50-year warranty that is transferrable from homeowner to the owner.
Because of vinyl's nature, and the fact that it is water resistant, maintenance on a vinyl siding home is virtually nonexistent. You will never have to paint your house or replace rotten siding. Just a simple washing once a year should keep your home looking great.
Cut Utility Costs
Insulated siding is available that will act as a barrier between the studs in your walls and the exterior of the house. While most houses do have insulation, cold air can bleed into the areas where the studs meet the walls. Not only is cold air able to come into the home, but cold, air conditioned air is able to escape during warm weather. Having insulated siding on your home can help cut costs for heating and cooling.
