It is much less likely than other materials to be damaged by UV rays, moisture, hail, insects, and other common threats. It will not rot or corrode. Most vinyl siding installation projects easily last over 50 years.

This limits thermal transfer between the indoors and outdoors, for a home that is naturally warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

4. Aesthetics

Vinyl comes in a wide variety of styles and colors. This means you can find a design that will suit your home’s architectural style, no matter what type of home you have. It can also convincingly mimic other high-maintenance and expensive materials such as wood.  

5. Affordability
