Mythbusting: Vinyl Siding Edition


Vinyl is one of the best siding materials available to homeowners. Yet, many people hesitate to invest in vinyl siding due to certain myths.

Here are the most common misconceptions about vinyl sidings that you need to stop believing:

It Does Not Last Long

Made from polyvinyl chloride, vinyl siding has the capacity to withstand strong winds of up to 110 mph. Be it excess heat, moisture or extreme weather, vinyl sidings can withstand harsh elements and last for many years.

However, siding maintenance plays a key role in ensuring longevity. The latest vinyl siding products are stronger and more durable than ever before. If, for example, strong winds rip off your vinyl siding then they can be easily installed again. Unlike other siding types, installing vinyl is much simpler to install and maintain.

It Is Not Aesthetically Pleasing

Not true. Today’s manufacturers design vinyl siding in multiple colors, styles and textures. According to the Vinyl Siding Institute, vinyl siding comes in more than 400 certified colors today.  Moreover, manufacturing companies test the durability and color retention of vinyl siding before sales.

Based on your personal needs and your home’s style, you can pick any siding style and color that best suits your requirements.

It is Expensive

Contrary to popular belief, vinyl is among the most affordable siding options. Coupled with its budget-friendly price, vinyl siding can be installed quickly and does not need constant panting, or maintenance. You definitely get your money’s worth.

Installing vinyl siding can lower your energy costs throughout the year. Insulated vinyl siding prevents heat loss and can keep you and your family warmer in winter and cool in summer.

As far as maintenance of vinyl siding goes, it is quite straightforward. A sponge and a bit of detergent can help you keep it in top shape.

It Is Not Eco-Friendly

When we talk about eco-friendly sidings, vinyl takes the lead. Since modern siding delivers quality insulation, you can save a lot of money on energy costs. As compared to brick and fiber cement, vinyl is much more environmentally-friendly.
