Vinyl siding is becoming more and more popular in the US. With more innovations and options available, it’s quickly becoming the best option for many families. Here are five easy reasons your home should go vinyl.

1. Cost

Vinyl siding is currently the most affordable type of siding on the market. It is significantly cheaper than wood, aluminum, stone, brick or any other type of siding. We all look for affordable ways to improve our home while still receiving great quality, and vinyl does just that. Not only does it cost less up front, but it will also save you maintenance and energy costs down the road.

2. Maintenance

Vinyl is virtually maintenance free. Wood siding needs regular painting or staining. It also has a tendency to rot or flake and require maintenance. Since vinyl is a plastic composite, it does not flake or require repainting. The only maintenance suggested for vinyl is a yearly power washing. Quick, easy, and leaves your weekends free for more fun activities.

3. Style

Despite popular belief, modern vinyl siding comes in a huge variety of colors and styles. It comes in nearly every color, ranging from light and bright to rich and deep. You can even get textured vinyl that gives the appearance of painted wood. With such a wide variety available, vinyl can fit with almost any style of home.

4. Energy Efficiency

Many families are now opting for insulated vinyl siding. This type of vinyl has a foam underlayment that’s usually 1.5 inches thick that keeps your home insulated from weather and sound. It can increase your homes R value (its resistance to heat flow) by up to 25% and save you loads on energy costs during the summer.

5. Durability

Vinyl is made from a rigid, strong plastic composite made to last through all conditions. It is specially designed to last for long periods of time, and is resistant to rot and fading from age or sunlight. Vinyl is strong, but flexible enough to withstand storms and high winds without cracking.
