Vinyl siding is a popular choice among homeowners who want to strike a balance between quality and affordability. However, there are some widespread misconceptions about vinyl siding that can lead homeowners to make uninformed decisions.
In today’s post, Universal Roofing & Exteriors — a trusted residential roofing and siding company — debunks some common myths about vinyl siding.
“Vinyl Siding Is Not Durable”
Other siding materials may be “stronger” than vinyl, but this does not make vinyl a weak material. Over the years, manufacturers have introduced various ways of treating vinyl and making it more resistant to the elements. Thanks to these features, you can rely on your vinyl siding to last for a long time, provided that it is properly maintained.
“Vinyl Is a Synthetic Material So It’s Bad for the Planet”
It’s true that vinyl siding is made from synthetic material. However, because it lasts for such a long time, it cuts down on landfill waste. It also requires minimal upkeep because it doesn’t need repainting, it cuts down on the use of chemicals. Vinyl siding is largely recyclable too.
“Vinyl Siding Will Make Your Home Look Cheap”
Vinyl siding is available in a huge range of styles, profiles and colors that will enhance your home’s curb appeal. And with a wide array of color options and improved color retention, you can expect its beauty to last. Vinyl siding can mimic traditional materials like wood, while requiring a fraction of the maintenance.
