If you're on the fence about choosing vinyl for your new siding installation, let Isthmus Roofing list the pros and cons of the material below!
Vinyl siding skyrocketed in popularity in the mid-20th century, and for a good reason! Let’s look at why vinyl siding is the most popular choice.
Ease of Installation
Vinyl is a lightweight material with easy-to-connect slates, making vinyl installation simple and relatively pain-free.
No Painting Needed
Vinyl siding comes pre-coated with a layer of color, so there’s no need to whip out that old paintbrush after installation! Additionally, you can find a vast array of color options, so you are not pigeonholed in picking a run-of-the-mill color!
Vinyl Siding Is Affordable
Since vinyl siding is lightweight, comes in many colors, and is easy to install, it’s the most affordable siding option! If your Wisconsin home needs an adequate, stylish shield at a fair price, vinyl may be the best option!
Vinyl siding does not possess much surface area, which means it’s a cinch to clean off. To clear vinyl of dirt, cobwebs, and other debris, all you have to do is simply spray it with a garden hose!
There are many benefits to vinyl siding. However, there are still a few drawbacks that you should also take into account.
Installation May Still Be Tricky
The vinyl siding installation process is the simplest of all the materials, but it still may be tricky for the average homeowner. Many homeowners rely on the help of a trusted local contractor for installation.
Vinyl Negatively Impacts the Environment
Since vinyl is made out of a combination of plastics, it’s difficult to recycle once it’s taken off and usually ends up being burned at a landfill. This burning additionally creates a harmful release of chemicals into the air.
Vinyl May Drive Down Your Home Value
Since vinyl isn’t iron-clad, it may allow moisture inside your home and could even blow off during severe weather. This may negatively impact your home value if you choose to install it.
