Versatile : Today’s vinyl siding comes in hundreds of colors, textures, and profiles to give you complete versatility in designing your dream exterior. Like the look of cedar shakes but prefer the qualities of vinyl? You can find a vinyl replacement that looks so authentic, it fools even the most discriminating eyes. Love Victorian scallops? There are plenty of inexpensive vinyl options for that, too. You can find a vinyl siding style that works with both horizontal and vertical applications for any home profile.
Durable : Vinyl siding is made to withstand the elements, including heavy wind and impact from hail. In addition, vinyl resists excessive moisture, meaning it won’t rot or corrode over time. In many cases, you can get a lifetime warranty on your vinyl siding that is often prorated for up to 50 years on successive owners.
Cuts Home Heating and Cooling Costs : Insulated vinyl siding prevents heat loss between the wall studs in exterior walls, a phenomenon known as “thermal bridging.” While most homes have insulation between the wall studs, the studs themselves bleed heat where they come in contact with exterior siding. Insulated vinyl siding places a blanket of protection over the studs, keeping your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer. In addition, insulated vinyl siding may make you eligible for energy tax credits, making it even more economical to install.
