No project can update the look of your house like siding. In addition to appearance, there are many benefits to adding new vinyl siding to your house.
A big part of the reason for vinyl siding is low maintenance and cost-effective is its durability. It’s created to withstand elements from heavy wind to hail. It’s also resistant to excessive amounts of moisture. This prevents rotting and corrosion. It also won’t warp or rust. Vinyl siding often comes with a lifetime warranty to back up its claims. That warranty can even be prorated for 50 years for successive owners.
One reason many homeowners choose vinyl siding is that it’s cost-effective. Vinyl costs less than wood or bricks. Not only is installation significantly more affordable than other alternatives, but you also get more for your money in the long term. For example, wood siding is more prone to damage and requires much more maintenance than vinyl siding, but it also comes with a much higher price tag. While it depends where you live, opting for vinyl siding can save you over $1,000 for every $1,250 square feet. You also have to factor in the cost of maintenance and repairs. As mentioned above, vinyl siding is remarkably low maintenance, meaning you won’t have to worry about costs that will come up down the road.
Heating and Cooling Efficiency
Not only will vinyl siding save you money on the cost of the product itself, but opting to install vinyl siding will save you money on utilities. Vinyl siding that is insulted prevents heat loss through a process called thermal bridging. What happens is, even if your home as another form of insulation, heat can be lost where wall studs contact exterior siding. Insulated vinyl siding is like adding a protective blanket over the wall studs. This means your home will be cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Other types of siding can also lead to gaps and cracks that allow both warm and cool air to escape. Homes with insulated vinyl siding can be eligible for energy credits on your taxes, saving you even more money. Vinyl siding is eco-friendly.
