About Vinyl Siding
Vinyl siding was first introduced to the exterior cladding market in the early 1960s and steadily grew in popularity over the next four decades because of its durability, versatility and ease of maintenance. The product is manufactured primarily with polyvinyl chloride (PVC), a material that gives it impact resistance, rigidity and strength.
Today, vinyl siding is the number one choice of exterior cladding across the United States and Canada. In fact, U.S. Census Bureau statistics show since 1995 more homeowners side their homes with vinyl than with any other material. Vinyl siding is available in a broad palette of colors, profiles and architectural trim, which allows homeowners to choose a product that enhances and complements the beauty and style of their homes.
The Benefits of Using Vinyl Siding on Your Home
For our region, vinyl siding replacement is among the top 10 remodeling projects in terms of return on investment. Time and time again, homeowners choose vinyl siding for its:
- Value – Vinyl Siding has a lower installed cost than all other materials
- Beauty – Technological enhancements in vinyl siding manufacturing processes have allowed for a large color palette, and wide variety of styles.
- Durabilty – Vinyl siding naturally resists rot, rust, and fire, and can withstand extreme weather and wind. Vinyl siding’s color runs throughout, so scratches and marks are less visible than with other materials. Features like weep holes also mean that water won’t be trapped behind the siding, causing rot.
- Ease of Maintenance – Vinyl Siding never needs to be painted. Vinyl siding is easily cleaned with a soft brush or rag and some soapy water.
