Five Benefits of Vinyl Siding Installation
Siding is non-negotiable in home construction. Otherwise known as cladding, it is a protective, weatherproof layer to the house's outer walls. Aside from their protective capabilities, the proper siding installation can also enhance your home's looks from the outside.
Vinyl sidings provide several benefits compared to other types. In the past, it wasn't as popular, but more people are coming to see its usefulness today.
Before we get into the benefits, let's take a brief look at what it actually is.
What is vinyl siding?
Since its introduction in the mid-20th century, vinyl has slowly crept up the priority ladder, becoming a favored medium for siding in home construction. Wood has long been the primary medium for siding. However, high maintenance costs and prices saw the demand for alternatives increase.
Initially, manufactured vinyl had some limitations, such as being thin and susceptible to fading quickly under intense sunlight. However, manufacturing innovation made it possible to create a more efficient medium.
Today, vinyl siding is made of PVC (polyvinyl chloride), a durable type of plastic with additional elements that give it durability, opacity, and color.
Here are some of the benefits of vinyl siding installation:
When choosing siding for your home, it's essential to consider maintenance requirements. Vinyl siding excels here, as there's no other option with such low maintenance demands.
To keep it looking great, you have almost zero upkeep activities to worry about, save for the once-a-year DIY cleaning. You won't even need to paint your home.
After installation, you're good to go for as long as it takes - no need to worry about repair or maintenance costs.
Siding that isn't durable is not worth the stress or the cost. Vinyl siding is as durable as they come as it's designed to withstand extreme weather conditions, including hail and heavy rains.
Vinyl won't rust or warp. Additionally, it has zero reaction to excessive moisture that would otherwise cause corrosion or rotting.
Vinyl is not too expensive
Vinyl is reasonably priced, unlike other options like bevel, board-and-batten, stone, and brick. Its installation is cheaper, and you get more value for your bucks in the long term.
Other options, like wood, are prone to damage and cost more time and effort to maintain while coming with high price tags. Repairs cost money, and other non-durable options are infinitely costlier in this regard- vinyl requires next to zero maintenance.
Vinyl comes in various colors and styles, offering plenty of customizability for your home's exterior.
You can select various shapes, textures, decorative accessories, and trims for your doors, windows, etc. Several colors are available in different profiles, including beaded designs, lap, fish scales, shingles, shakes, and vertical panels.
Vinyl siding is one of the easiest to install. It weighs much less than other materials, and the uniform look at the end is truly excellent.
To get your vinyl installation done right, you need the right professionals.
