Vinyl siding remains a popular material among homeowners because it strikes a great balance between affordability and durability. But is it the right siding for your home? As a leading provider of gutters, roofing and vinyl services, Hinkle Roofing shares the characteristics that make vinyl siding an ideal choice.
It Doesn’t Require Scraping and Repainting – Traditional wood siding requires repainting every year. In addition to the cost of paint for your exterior, there’s also the massive effort of scraping and repainting, which can take more than a weekend to finish. Vinyl siding, on the other hand, can either have molded-in colors or factory-applied coatings, neither of which require a fresh coat during its lifespan.
It Helps Improve Exterior Insulation – One of the key elements of energy efficiency is sufficient insulation. While a properly-built exterior wall often has sufficient insulation, it won’t hurt to have your exterior made of non-conducting material like vinyl. Similar to vinyl replacement windows, siding can have a layer of insulating material that helps minimize heat transfer. It can help reduce your home’s indoor heating and cooling requirements and, in turn, help reduce your energy consumption.
It’s Virtually Maintenance-Free – Vinyl siding requires virtually no maintenance, a characteristic that, for many homeowners, makes vinyl the ideal siding material. Cleaning typically requires just spraying the exterior with a garden hose, with perhaps a brush with a long handle for tight spots. Homes with vinyl siding can be cleaned in a few hours, which gives homeowners time to focus on more important things.
It’s More Durable – Vinyl siding isn’t always the first thing that comes to mind when it comes to durability, but not all vinyl siding is made the same. Hinkle Roofing provides vinyl siding options that can withstand impact from hailstones and tree branches and stay in shape despite exposure to temperature changes.
