Benefits of Exterior Vinyl Siding

There are several types of exterior siding available: wood, metal, fiber cement, and vinyl. Comparatively, vinyl siding has become the most popular choice in the US, according to HGTV. Certainly, this is due to the low cost, versatility and easy maintenance. Together with its longevity of 20-40 years, it’s no wonder most homeowners choose this option.

Constructed out of a PVC plastic resin, vinyl is remarkably strong. It won’t rust, conduct electricity, dent, warp, rot, or chip. Since the material is rain, sun, and wind resistant, it holds up against the elements. Also, it won’t wear down in humidity nor become affected by air pollution. Finally, it can act as a great insulator to protect your home against extreme temperatures. Thus, saving you additional money on energy bills.

Plus, vinyl siding comes in a wide range of color and grain patterns. Vinyl siding can mimic shake, shingle, or even stone. Whatever the architectural style of your house, there is a vinyl siding product to compliment it.

Cost Factors

There are several factors to consider when contemplating the cost of installing exterior finishes. First, there is the size or square footage of your house. Generally, smaller houses tend to cost less than smaller houses. However, how many windows and door openings is another big factor that impacts cost as well. Also, another variable to consider is the shape of windows and other openings. Non-standard shapes potentially increase the overall price.

Furthermore, the material itself varies in cost. For example, there are different thicknesses of siding and each varies in cost. The style of the material also plays a role in the final expense. Plain, smooth siding would cost differently vs. textured materials that mimic wood or stone.

Finally, there are the extra details to make your home look beautiful. You’ll likely choose any number of complementary pieces like specialty molding around windows and door frames. As well as details such as trim, soffits, and corners will cost you extra. Be sure to discuss this with your contractor before work begins for a comprehensive estimate.
