The siding of your home is more than just its appearance. Choosing the material that helps protect your home from the various elements Mother Nature throws at it is no small decision, especially since siding installation is a significant investment. One of the options we provide here at REI Roofing is vinyl siding. Vinyl siding has made some pretty big strides in the last several years. People like to hold onto dated notions of what it means to have vinyl siding, but things have changed and we’re here to tell you why vinyl is a great option for your home.
Aesthetically, the vinyl options you’ll see today mimic the look of real wood in a much more realistic way than the faux-wood vinyl panels that were previously available. Past variations of vinyl options all had seams along the panel, but now there are many options with no seams. Also, the texture of modern vinyl panels looks more like wood than ever before. Panels typically come fully painted too, with the color infused into the vinyl to avoid having the color eventually chip or flake off. As a homeowner, you have the option of choosing from a wide variety of colors to match your preferred color scheme. If it so happens that your desired color is not available, your selected vinyl style can be painted the color of your choice.
When it comes to performance, vinyl is more durable than most other siding options. It is crafted to withstand the elements, which means anything from heavy wind to hail. Vinyl siding also resists excessive moisture build-up, so you won’t have to worry about corroding or rotting as it ages. Not only is vinyl a sturdy siding option, but it’s also incredibly low maintenance. It naturally resists common pests like termites, and will keep its original qualities while protecting your house throughout the years. Once installed, you won’t have to worry about any unexpected costs in terms of siding upkeep either. Simply wash your vinyl siding a few times per year, and that should be the ticket for keeping it looking fresh.
One of the most appealing aspects of vinyl siding is the cost. It is one of the least expensive materials a homeowner can choose, with the lowest amount of initial cost than any other siding option. Not only that, but the installation process is fast and similarly inexpensive. Most everyone struggles with their home budget, but vinyl siding offers people the chance to reap the benefits of a sturdy siding while not breaking the bank.
