If you’re looking to improve your look of your home and you absolutely hate painting and the hassle of having to maintain the paint on the exterior of your home, then you might want to consider vinyl siding. Vinyl siding has become a very popular choice for new homes and home remodels, providing a number of benefits over the standard siding or painting options.
Thanks to the folks at Grennan Construction, a family-owned and operated company for over 15 years and who specialize in the installation of vinyl siding, here are five major benefits of choosing vinyl siding for your next home improvement project.
Reason #1: Durability
Perhaps the reason why vinyl siding has become the most popular siding material is because vinyl siding is long-lasting and durable. Vinyl siding can stand up to most tortuous weather conditions without suffering severe damage. Newer vinyl material is even stronger than the older vinyl material, so it is less likely to crack and become brittle. As an added bonus, vinyl siding has been known to last even the harshest of sun exposure without severe fading.
Reason #2: Maintenance
Out of all of the siding materials, vinyl siding is among the easiest to maintain. There is no need to paint the siding, as it never fades from outdoor elements. Other than an occasional spray wash once or twice a year, there is no other major maintenance required with vinyl siding. If moisture is an issue, a simple application of additional caulking at the joints between the siding and trim is all that is needed.
Reason #3: Cost-Effective and Energy Efficient
Long-term, vinyl siding is extremely cost-effective. The initial cost to install vinyl siding will vary based on the size of the home and the quality grade of the vinyl material used; however, the money saved in its low-maintenance and high-durability benefits will more than make up for the cost to install vinyl siding. Plus, vinyl siding is energy efficient and can also help reduce energy bills by serving as an extra layer of insulation, reducing any costs associated with heating and cooling the home.
Reason #4: Appearance & Curb Appeal
Newer vinyl materials have color hat is actually baked through the vinyl, instead of applied to the vinyl, which means that the color stays true over longer periods of time. It also avoids fading, scratches and other small imperfections that come with other siding materials and vinyl that has been painted. It comes in many different grains and colors to suit any homeowner’s taste and style, including those looking for a more ranch-like home, colonial type or even a Victorian home. You can select vinyl siding that is consistent with both your environment and neighboring homes, as well as what fits your personal design preferences.
Reason #5: Increased Home Value
Last, but not least, vinyl siding is a great investment for any homeowner looking to add value to their home. Redoing the siding of a home is among the top ten remodeling projects in terms of overall payback.
