Vinyl Siding: The Most Popular Siding Choice in America

Skywalker Windows and Siding

Siding doesn’t just cover the sides of your home. It really stands front-and-center in terms of its contribution to your home’s exterior appearance. And the right siding can really help your home to stand out in all the right ways! So, what’s the right siding for you? That’s really for you to decide, but you’d be remiss if you didn’t at least consider the many virtues of vinyl siding.

Why Vinyl Is the Most Popular Option for American Homeowners

Vinyl siding is at the top of the list in terms of popularity, and for good reason – it combines beautiful aesthetics with low maintenance and lasting performance, all at a more competitive price than most other siding options. Here are some reasons for you to give vinyl a look when it’s time for your next siding replacement:

  • Durable Vinyl is incredibly durable, especially when compared to wood or wood products. It’s designed to withstand the elements better,it resists moisture damage and threats from pests, and it won’t rot or corrode like other materials. Vinyl siding which is properly installed can last you for decades.
  • Easy to Maintain In terms of siding options, vinyl is incredibly low-maintenance.It does more than just resist moisture, rot, and pests. Vinyl doesn’t require repainting or restaining, either – something that wood siding can’t say for itself.Vinyl is also simpler to clean than many siding materials.
  • Less Mold and Mildew Not only is vinyl moisture-resistant, it can even be more “breathable” than other materials. How so? Vinyl siding that’s installed correctly will allow moisture to escape, which helps to inhibit the growth of mold and mildew.You really can’t say that about some other types of siding.
  • Cuts Monthly Utility Bills Insulated vinyl siding is specially engineered to help prevent heat loss in the winter, and heat intrusion during the summer. And the right vinyl siding can save you money in other ways, too. Insulated vinyl siding may qualify you for some special energy tax credits.
  • Very Cost-Effective With vinyl siding you’ll pay less in siding replacement costs (typically just a fraction of the cost of wood or other materials). That fact alone is attractive to many American homeowners, but vinyl isn’t just cost-saving in terms of up-front price.You’ll also pay less over time in maintenance. If you’re looking for a truly cost-effective option, it’s hard to beat vinyl siding!
  • Versatile and Customizable Vinyl comes in many great looks and styles, including both horizontal and vertical applications. There really aren’t many walls that vinyl siding can’t cover! Another thing that makes vinyl popular is the fact that it can be engineered to mimic the look of traditional wood, for less money, and with much less hassle in terms of ongoing maintenance.
  • Eco-Friendly Bet you didn’t see this one coming – vinyl siding is actually more eco-friendly than you may realize! 60-70% of all vinyl products are made from recycled vinyl, and the back ply of vinyl siding typically contains a significant amount of recycled material.Another eco-friendly feature of vinyl is its longevity. The longer your vinyl siding lasts, the fewer of Earth’s resources you’ll have to deplete to replace it!
  • Curb Appeal Boost The amazing range of colors and textures available with vinyl can be applied to make almost any house pop. That’s nice when you want to impress your neighbors, but it’s an even more valuable feature if and when you’re ever ready to put your home up for sale! In fact, if you’re preparing to put your property on the market, a vinyl siding replacement is a great way to boost the overall curb appeal of your structure.
