Are you tired of painting your house every few years? With vinyl siding, you’ll never have to go through that process again. That’s not all – vinyl siding is a bargain, and, most importantly, looks great.

Vinyl is the superior type of siding

No other type of cladding material can match the durability of vinyl siding. It retains its color even through the harshest elements, so it never needs to be repainted.

The only required maintenance is the occasional rinsing with a garden hose and, for tougher spots, a washing with cloth and soap. Some sidings come with warranties that may last for as long as the lifetime of the house.

Vinyl siding is also the best value out of any type of cladding material available. At an average of $152 per 100 square feet, vinyl siding costs almost one-third less than wood paneling.

Wide variety of selections

Vinyl siding is available in an incredible variety of colors and profiles. Both vibrant and more subdued tones are very popular, but there is also a rich diversity of deep reds, greens and blues, among others.

There is a huge range of profile choices, from traditional paneling to scallops to Dutch lap designs, so you can choose the style that will perfectly complement the architecture of your house. Vinyl siding is even used in historical restorations because of how easily it can be made to resemble certain types of wood paneling.

More new homes being built with vinyl siding

The benefits of vinyl siding have not gone unnoticed by the market, as almost 40% of new single family homes are built with vinyl siding - that’s more than twice the number of houses built with wood paneling or brick.
