Skip Summer Painting with New Vinyl Siding

Posted in Siding

If your home is beginning to look shabby due to fading or peeling paint, you probably are planning to resolve the issue once the summer weather arrives. Summer is the best time for painting, but what is even better is not needing to paint at all. If you are tired of repainting your home every 5-10 years, why not invest in a different siding solution. With vinyl siding, you can say goodbye to painting your home for good.

Advantages of Vinyl Siding

When you change to vinyl siding over wood or composite siding, you gain many advantages for your home. Vinyl siding offers a long-lasting covering for your home that requires very little maintenance. Some of the benefits of vinyl siding include:

  • Energy savings. Vinyl siding can help insulate homes and keep energy costs down.
  • Low-cost installation. Compared to wood, vinyl is cost-effective for installation.
  • Wide variety of styles. Vinyl comes in different styles, including mimicking the look of wood shingles.
  • Low-maintenance. One of the biggest reasons people love vinyl siding is that it never needs to be painted and will not rot and resists mildew. It can be kept clean easily with pressure washing.
  • Durable. Vinyl siding can last for decades and stands up to all types of weather elements without problems.

While wood has been the go-to siding for many years, vinyl siding now accounts for close to 40% of the siding market. This growth is due to the many advantages it offers, especially when it comes to your bank account. It is less expensive to install and maintain, plus it helps you save on your energy bills. Contact your local home improvement contractor to learn more about switching to vinyl siding versus painting your home again this summer.
