The siding on your home protects the structure from the wind, rain and other elements. Although there are many different materials that can be used as siding, vinyl siding is one of the most popular options for many homeowners due to the advantages it offers. Our team at Sela can help determine if new vinyl siding is a good option for your home.
Your siding needs to be able to withstand high winds and protect your family against the cold winters and hot summers. Vinyl siding is incredibly durable and is able to withstand wind speeds of up to 200 mph and more. Depending on the manufacturer, you may even be able to get a lifetime warranty on your new siding due to its durability.
Another reason that vinyl siding is so popular among homeowners is its cost. Not only is this material affordable, but it is also quick to install. This means that homeowners also save on labor costs. Additionally, replacing the old cladding with vinyl siding can improve the home’s value at the time of resale, meaning homeowners could potentially recoup the cost of the new siding.
Vinyl siding is incredibly diverse. There are no limits to color options, textures and profiles. In fact, vinyl siding can mimic wood, stone and even slate, giving your home a unique look and improving the curb appeal. This type of siding is even occasionally used on historic homes that are being renovated because they mimic the original materials so well. Choosing textured vinyl is a great way to increase your home’s value without having to use real stone or wood.
Finally, vinyl is often chosen when new siding is needed because it is extremely easy to maintain. Vinyl siding never needs to be painted. Because it is made from manmade materials, the vinyl will not rot or become damaged due to insect infestation or rot. The siding will need to be cleaned with some mild soap and water once or twice a year, but this can be easily done by a siding contractor.
When your home needs new siding, vinyl siding has proven time and time again to be a great option for many homes. If you opt for insulated vinyl, you will not find that your home is well protected against the elements, but you may also see your heating and cooling costs lowered.
