5 Reasons to Choose Vinyl Siding for Your Home
With roots dating back to the 1950s, vinyl siding has become a popular choice in residential homes. Here are some of the top reasons for choosing it.
Hundreds of Color Options
With vinyl siding, you choose from hundreds of different colors. The Vinyl Siding Institute (VSI) has certified more than 350 colors for color retention, meaning they will withstand the hands of time without succumbing to fading and/or discoloration. So regardless of your preferred style, chances are there's a vinyl siding color to match.
If you're looking for low-maintenance siding, there's no better choice than vinyl. Aside from the occasional washing, there's really no other maintenance needed. Just wash your vinyl siding using water and soap once every six months and it will maintain a pristine appearance.
Being that vinyl siding consists of engineered polyvinyl chloride (PVC) resin, it's protected from rot and decay. Whether it's one year from now or 20, you can rest assured knowing that vinyl siding won't rot.
While not technically fireproof, vinyl siding is slow to ignite when exposed to high heat. This is because it has a chlorine base, which is naturally flame retardant.
Withstand High-Speed Winds
Strong winds can wreak havoc on residential homes, ripping away roof shingles and siding materials from homes. Hurricanes and other strong storms are often accompanied with 100+ mph winds. Thankfully, vinyl siding offers a superior level of protection from strong winds such as this. Depending on the particular type, some vinyl siding can withstand up to 200 mph winds.
