Exterior siding is used on the walls of a house to make the house look attractive and to protect the construction from the worst of the weather.

Low maintenance - long life

There are several kinds of sidings you can use, including wood and aluminum, but today most people choose vinyl siding because it is durable and low-maintenance.

Vinyl siding does not rot or flake. It doesn't need painting, since the color you choose is mixed into the vinyl as it is manufactured.

Vinyl siding comes in preformed panels, with different grains and finishes. Many companies offering vinyl siding also manufacture drains and roofing, offering the possibility of matching all the exterior parts of a home.

Use a professional siding contractor

To make sure that the new siding system is fitted correctly, and any other remedial work is done on the house, many people elect to have their new vinyl siding fitted by a siding contractor.

This means that the end results will have a professional finish, and that materials and labor guarantees are in place. Siding contractors often offer advice on the best vinyl exterior siding systems to use for any particular house. More information...

Improve your home value

Fitting vinyl siding can improve the value of a house. The National Association of Real Estate Appraisers carried out a study that showed that returns of up to 106% can be expected on investment for projects involving new exterior siding, doors, windows, and energy upgrades. New vinyl siding is a great way to give your house a whole new look and potentially improve its market value.

Note: If you spelled vinyl either as vinal, vynl, vynal or vynel, the correct spelling is vinyl.
