Benefits of Vinyl Siding
Vinyl is made to withstand the elements, even hail, ice and heavy wind, something that may be surprising considering it costs much less than other types of siding. Vinyl is also very versatile with designs that can imitate other types of siding, including cedar shake. Vinyl is also almost maintenance free, resistant to termite and other pests. It never needs painting and a simple cleaning once each year will keep your siding in excellent shape. Vinyl can also reduce your home’s energy costs. With a wide range of vinyl siding colors, you can also create almost any look you choose on the exterior of your home.
Vinyl Styles and Types
Vinyl comes in three types, including horizontal, vertical and cedar shake. Horizontal, or clapboard siding, run across your house from end to end in a horizontal pattern while vertical, or board and batten siding, runs up and down, often in different widths. Cedar shake siding looks like old-fashioned shingles or shakes, much like those made of cedar found on older-style homes. Each type of vinyl also has a variety of styles. For example, beaded clapboard siding has a rounded groove or notch that gives your exterior the look of a shadow below each strip. Vertical vinyl is often combined with cedar shake to create an older look. This type of siding is often called barn siding because it is similar to siding used on barns across the country. In addition to styles and types, you can also choose from a wide range of vinyl siding colors.
What to Look for When Choosing Vinyl Siding
Beyond choosing vinyl siding colors, style or type, there are other things to consider when choosing vinyl for your siding. If you want to add additional energy savings to your home, consider choosing insulated vinyl which adds an extra layer of protection from the elements and can help lower your energy costs. Although cheaper grades of vinyl can save you money initially, it may not be as attractive on your home and it may not have the same life expectancy of higher grade vinyl, costing you more in the long run.
