It’s that time of year again – time to go outside and look up at your Residential or Commercial Property and determine if you can really afford to put off having your siding replaced. Most siding contractors say this is their busiest time of the year because the weather is nicer and Property Owners want to invest their tax refund in improving the look of their home or business. But is vinyl siding really the right choice for your home?

The benefits of vinyl siding go far beyond its good looks and affordability. Vinyl siding also protects and insulates your home or business, helping it withstand punishing storms and other harsh weather. Vinyl siding is built to last for many years to come, while resisting scratches, cracks, rusting, and sagging.  Because it is entirely weather resistant, vinyl siding is perfect for homes and business in hot or cold areas of the country, whether it’s cold air or warm air coming into.

Property Owners who are looking to reduce energy bills might want to know that vinyl siding is also considered Eco-friendly and can be purchased with an insulated backing bring the R value much higher than other options. This ultimately keeps energy bills lower and helps with the resale value of your home or business. Being a natural insulator vinyl siding helps keep your property at a comfortable indoor temperature. These benefits and many others explain why more than 30 percent of all Property Owners choose vinyl siding for their property, but it never hurts to do a fair comparison between vinyl and other materials on the market.

Vinyl siding was first introduced in the 1960s as an alternative to aluminum, but its reputation faded early because the earliest version tendency to fading, cracking, buckled. It wasn’t until the ‘60s & 70s that vinyl siding was perfected and Property Owners started choosing it over aluminum and wood. Now another durable siding product has hit the market – fiber cement siding. While not identical, both vinyl and fiber cement are now considered the bestselling exterior building products.

Interestingly, despite its widespread use throughout the building community there are few subjects in the residential construction industry that draw battle lines as clearly as vinyl siding does. Detractors believe that the outside of a home should never be covered by anything but wood shingles, brick or stone while proponents praise the easy maintenance and affordability offered with vinyl.
