Here are the benefits of vinyl sidings you should know

It was 60’s when vinyl siding started getting momentum among American homes amidst the ubiquity of aluminum siding. However, the earliest vinyl was not so durable and high performing like its modern version. In 1970s, the industry upgraded the formulation to improve the product’s quality, resistance and range of color. Consequently, the following decades saw the soaring popularity of vinyl siding in the USA. Today, vinyl siding is known for its versatility, durability and ease of maintenance. No wonder that it was the most common exterior material used in over 32% houses across the USA.

Vinyl siding is an impact resistant and attractive siding option with a ton of great advantages for homeowners who want to improve curb appeal and reduce maintenance at the same time.

Here we have rounded up some of the key benefits of vinyl siding.

Vinyl Siding is AFFORDABLE

One of the key reasons why it is the homeowner’s preferable choice is the cost. Vinyl siding costs you less than other options like wood and brick. Besides being affordable, the low maintenance cost of energy efficient materials makes it cost effective. Professionally installed vinyl siding can cost between $2500 and $8750 for 1250 square feet while wood siding costs you $6,500-$10,000.

Vinyl Siding is DURABLE

It withstands dent and harsh weather conditions like heat, cold, moisture and wind. The siding is also resistant to rotting, splitting and insect damage.

Vinyl Siding Requires LITTLE MAINTENANCE

Another advantage is that it requires little maintenance. You don’t need to paint, scrap or apply a stain frequently. Just clean it once a year with a water hose, brush, and cleaning product. You can also remove buildup of dirt and mud with a power wash.


Insulated vinyl siding avoids heat loss between the wall studs in exterior walls—an action termed as thermal bridging. In simple words, it works like a blanket of protection over the studs, thereby keeping your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer. This way, it saves you energy cost throughout the year.


It also adds to the curb appeal of your home. It not only gives your home a new look, but also helps the exterior of your home look well-maintained as it doesn’t flake, chip or peel. As an added bonus, it increases the resale value of your home.

Vinyl Siding is VERSATILE:

It is available in hundreds of textures, color and profiles to choose from. Whether you are looking for a cedar shakes or Victorian scallops, the siding has every theme. You can choose the one which goes well with both vertical and horizontal applications for any home.

With the benefits listed above, it is affordable, durable and attractive siding option for homeowners. Not only it improves the look of your home, but also helps enhance the curb appeal and ensures great return on investment if you are looking to sell your home.

However, choosing the right vinyl siding is essential. Here are the things to look for…

  • What’s your budget? Which grade do you need—economy, standard or super premium?
  • Consider the architecture of your home as well as the tastes.
  • Is the product or installer certified?
