A major benefit to installing vinyl siding on your home is energy efficiency. When the weather starts to get cold homeowners will turn up the heat. However, if your siding is weak or made of a material that is not up to par you could be wasting the warm air as it slips through cracks. Vinyl siding is recommended because it is often available with insulating underlayment and backing which can increase your energy efficiency by up to 20%. Research indicates that vinyl siding has 10 times the life expectancy of traditional wood siding.
Vinyl siding is also more affordable than brick, stucco or aluminum. Paying for new siding installation is not something every homeowner can afford so when you decide to budget for this home improvement project, vinyl is the material that will save you the most. Cheaper than wood siding, vinyl is also resistant to termites and all types of wood boring insects.
The best part of vinyl siding is that it is practically maintenance free, never needing painting or sealing.
