Vinyl siding is a versatile and attractive building material constructed of durable polyvinyl chloride (PVC) resin. Designed to protect the home’s structure and foundation from inclement weather, pests, and wear, this siding option provides numerous benefits that are often overlooked despite its popularity. Here’s a closer look at the most common types and the benefits your home will receive.
What Are the Types of Vinyl Siding?
Vinyl siding comes in many styles, colors, textures, and widths, allowing you to customize the look of your home without sacrificing on cost or protection.
Among the options are standard, decorative, and insulated. Decorative finishes are available in multiple profiles that mimic the look and feel of natural wood, including lap, beaded, board & batten, shake, shingles, scallops, fish scale, half cove, hexagon, and more. Insulated siding is ideal for those in colder climates or in older homes that are prone to heat loss.
What Are the Advantages?
Unlike traditional siding materials, vinyl is built to last a lifetime. Not only is it durable, withstanding severe weather conditions such as wind, rain, and extreme heat, but it's also impervious to insects.
Vinyl is among the most affordable siding options both in upfront costs and over time, due to its strength, resilience, and ease of maintenance. Constructed with PVC resin, it’s also fade-proof, meaning it won't discolor or bleach in the sun, saving you time and money on repainting.
Known for its beauty, vinyl can improve your curb appeal in addition to increasing your home value. Studies show that re-siding your home with vinyl can increase your resale value by as much as 78% of the project's cost.
