There are numerous benefits that come from replacing your home’s siding. In today’s post, we’ll introduce you to a particular kind of siding that has been growing in popularity in the last several years: vinyl siding. While vinyl siding has been on the market since 1950, it’s recently become a go-to option for homeowners who are looking for an affordable and reliable home siding option. Blue Springs Siding and Windows offers siding installation in Kansas City and the surrounding areas. Contact a member of our friendly staff today to learn how your home can benefit from vinyl siding!
What Is Vinyl Siding?
Vinyl siding is composed of plastic and was originally designed to replace aluminum siding, which was both expensive and inefficient. Roughly one-third of the contemporary homes on today’s market are built using vinyl siding, and although it often has the appearance and texture of wood, vinyl siding is substantially cheaper and more energy-efficient than wooden siding.
The Benefits of Vinyl Siding
As we noted in the previous section, vinyl siding is an element of most contemporary homes due to its ability to withstand harsh conditions over long periods of time. Aluminum siding will rust, dent, and scratch easily; wooden siding has a difficult time resisting water and mold. Vinyl siding also provides you with a durable material that won’t scratch or dent easily, and it is also highly water-resistant. When properly maintained, vinyl siding can last your home for decades!
For homeowners who enjoy customizing the look of their home, vinyl siding provides the opportunity to paint and decorate your home as your see fit. Vinyl siding is incredibly easy to paint, and a wide range of colors are compatible with it. Aluminum and wood paneling on the side of your home can be tough to paint and will need to be updated frequently, but painted vinyl siding will last for years when properly maintained.
We would be remiss if we failed to mention the gains in energy efficiency that vinyl siding can deliver. Vinyl siding is an excellent insulator and it will prevent both hot and cold air from leaving your home. While wooden siding can warp and allow air to flow in and out of your home, vinyl siding provides a warp-proof barrier between your home and the outside environment. Nearly all of our clients who have invested in vinyl siding have told us that they see a significant drop in their long-term heating and cooling costs. Some forms of insulated siding can even qualify your home for the ENERGY STAR® program. The money you save on your energy bill each month will make your vinyl siding installation even cheaper!
