Finding the right material for your roof can help delay the need for frequent roof repair needs or premature replacement. This is why it’s very important to study your options carefully. The same rule also holds true when you’re redoing your siding.
Your siding serves as the “skin” of your home. It’s one of the primary layers of protection you have against the element so it makes sense that you want to choose a strong and long-lasting material. One popular option many homeowners are choosing is vinyl siding. Read on as our professionals at Expert Contracting share the many benefits you can expect from this versatile material.
Vinyl was developed at a time when wood was losing popularity due to its many problems and metal was still in its early stages of development. It might not be the best material for a roof replacement but it certainly found its niche in the siding industry.
Vinyl is strong. It can withstand strong winds (up to 110 mph) as well as some extreme temperature swings brought on by hot summer days and freezing winter nights. Its early versions might not have the same durability but modern vinyl siding has been designed to be impact-resistant, rot- and insect-proof, and to weather the thermal expansion and contraction caused by the heat and cold.
Vinyl cemented its place as the number one choice of homeowners and siding and roofing companies due to its low-maintenance needs. Its colors are mixed in with the material during the extrusion process so it doesn’t need repainting and it can be made to match the natural grainy texture that wood possesses, without the need for frequent inspections and maintenance.
Vinyl siding is one of the most energy efficient materials there is, boasting insulation ratings that can certainly compare to its aluminum and wood counterparts. Its long life span also means you’ll need less frequent replacements, making it one of the greenest choices available today.
