Upgrading your home to vinyl siding is a wise choice for homeowners.
Vinyl siding first appeared on the scene in the late 1950s. At the time, most house siding was aluminum, but the vinyl version proved to be cheaper and easier to maintain than its aluminum predecessor. Since that time, manufacturing enhancements have made vinyl more durable and a better insulator than many other siding products on the market today.
Of the four main siding options (metal, wood, fiber cement, and vinyl), vinyl is the least expensive material, and the second least expensive to install. Only metal siding is cheaper because it can be snipped and riveted into place. However, being cheaper can come at a cost. After all, you get what you pay for, right?
Installing vinyl siding requires special skills and attention to detail. That’s why vinyl siding installation is best left in the hands of a craftsman.
