Benefits of vinyl siding

Thursday, February 21st, 2019 by Peter Pawelko

Today, homeowners are faced with numerous choices as to the siding material that should be used on their home. In this article, we won’t try to persuade you on any particular type of home siding. The purpose of this article is merely to provide you with as much information regarding vinyl siding, so that you, as the homeowner, can include it when making an informed decision. 

We evaluate each house and multi-family building on an individual basis and we talk to each homeowner.  This is why we decided to only list the pros of vinyl siding.  So, when considering your siding options for your home or remodel, don’t overlook the many advantages of choosing modern vinyl siding.

Here are a few advantages of vinyl siding:

  1. Affordable and cost-effective – vinyl siding remains one of the least expensive options for exterior cladding. The instillation is fast and inexpensive, so is vinyl’s lightweight and interlocking design.
  2. Virtually no maintenance - aside from cleaning as needed.  Most homeowners take care of this during warm months with a garden hose or a gentle-pressure power washer.
  3. Highly customizable and versatile - to match your individual specifications. Easily mimics any texture, even wood.
  4. No initial coating of finish – the color is infused with the vinyl itself so it cannot flake or chip. You paint when you decide to change the color.
  5. Choice of at least 3 gauges – the thickness of siding which is key when selecting vinyl siding. The thicker the gauge, the thicker the siding, the longer it will last, it can last more than 40 years.
  6. Reduces heating and cooling costs – with insulated vinyl siding we cover wall studs which reduces heating and cooling transfer.  It keeps your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer without increased use of your HVAC system.

To sum up, the main advantages of vinyl siding are its low cost and ease of installation combined with its low maintenance.  All factors must be weighed carefully against the above benefits.  Every siding has cons and we discuss all pros and cons with each client and our solutions are based on a homeowner's individual needs, location, house or building type, house or building style, plus so much more. 

Also, we review with you, the homeowner, other types of siding when making a decision as important as installing new siding or replacing siding your home.
