Vinyl siding can be a great option for homeowners who want to improve the aesthetics of their home while creating an attractive low maintenance exterior.
Vinyl siding is durable, inexpensive and relatively easy to maintain. Vinyl siding is available in a variety of grades, styles, profiles and colors making it a practical choice for many architectural styles. There are many factors to contemplate if you are considering installing vinyl siding on your home:
Vinyl Siding does not rot and never needs to be painted. These are the biggest reasons many people choose vinyl siding for residing their home. In fact, the only regular maintenance vinyl siding needs is to be pressure washed once or twice a year. When you factor in the cost to repaint a home every 3-5 years, the cost of vinyl siding can be recouped very quickly.
While installing vinyl siding on your home is going to be more expensive than a quality paint job, it is less expensive than other siding options. The installed cost of vinyl siding will vary depending on the size of the home, the quality/style of the siding, and quality of the installation but is typically less expensive than wood and fiber-cement siding replacement options. Vinyl siding also has the potential to help save future maintenance costs and energy costs.
Vinyl siding will add a new fresh look to an otherwise dated home. There are many profiles, thicknesses, and colors of vinyl siding available today. While the traditional horizontal profiles that resemble wood siding are available, there are many other options available, including board & batten, shakes, and scallops. Over the past several years, there have been many accessory products made available like window and door mantles, pilasters, and other moldings that will add character and detail to a home with the low maintenance attributes of vinyl siding.
When retrofitting an existing home with vinyl siding, there are several ways you can increase the energy efficiency of your home:
Siding contractors should install a moisture barrier and/or insulation board on top of the existing siding before installing the vinyl siding. The insulation board provides a smooth surface for the siding to be installed and tightens the building envelope which will save energy.
Many siding manufacturers offer vinyl siding that has insulation integrated into the back of the siding itself. This foamed back vinyl siding can add an R-Value as much as 4 or 5 to your wall system.
Replacing your siding with vinyl siding can be a simple process, but there are many key items that a qualified installer should know. Here are a few of the questions you should ask your contractor.
