Versatile, durable and low-maintenance—these are some of the most notable qualities of vinyl siding. This material has gained popularity because of its exceptional features that can help boost the aesthetics and functionality of any home. Local siding and roofing repair contractor Pawcatuck Roofing Co., Inc. takes a closer look at its numerous benefits.
Vinyl siding has graced our homes since it became available in the market in the late 1950s. Its prototypes, however, were not as good. Thanks to decades of manufacturing innovations, the siding product we know of today became more versatile. You can now find it in a diverse array of colors, textures and styles that can spruce up your exterior. This wide range of choices allows you to pick the right one that best complements the overall architectural design of your home.
Every siding and roofing contractor can attest to the ability of vinyl siding to withstand harsh elements all year round. It won’t chip, crack or fade even under intense conditions like temperature fluctuations, strong winds and hailstorms. It is also moisture-resistant— you won’t have to worry about replacing it anytime soon because it doesn’t rot or split as wood siding does. Vinyl’s durability is also the reason why it can deter termites and other pests.
Perhaps the most notable benefit of vinyl siding, and one of its main selling points, is its need for little maintenance. Unlike wood, you don’t have to scrape, paint, or apply a stain on the siding. To keep it looking good as new, all you need is some gentle cleaning once a year using a soapy water solution, soft brush and water streaming out of your garden hose. You can even use a power washer to remove dirt buildup.
