Vinyl is one of the most enduring siding materials available today, striking the ideal balance between affordability and long-term performance. As a siding contractor who specializes in exceptional siding options like vinyl, Spicer Bros. Construction shares some facts about vinyl siding in today’s post.
Used in Many Applications
Vinyl, also known as polyvinyl chloride or PVC, is the third-most-produced synthetic plastic polymer, used in nearly every consumer product that requires durable plastics from electrical insulation to vinyl records. Your own home will likely have components made of vinyl, including sewage pipes, replacement window frames and even siding.
One of the benefits of choosing vinyl siding is with the right manufacturer, you can choose virtually any color molded-in. This means the color penetrates the entire material and won’t just be on the surface like paint. The colors are applied during manufacturing, which helps make siding installation faster as there will be no need for painting.
Minimal Maintenance Requirements
Another benefit of vinyl siding is you won’t have to worry about periodic scraping and repainting, thanks to the molded colors. Plus, vinyl only requires a mild cleaning solution and an optional brush for those hard to reach spaces. You can finish cleaning your exterior clad with vinyl siding in an afternoon.
Properly installed vinyl siding has been proven to withstand winds up to 110 mph, the equivalent of a Category 2 hurricane. And if ever it does get torn off your exterior wall, it can be replaced much faster than other siding materials.
Comes in Different Shapes and Textures
Today’s vinyl siding can be made into virtually any shape and texture, from wood-shakes to cedar boards used in board-and-batten vertical siding, all with realistic wood grain that you can actually feel. Whether you have a traditional or a contemporary home style, there’s a vinyl siding option for you.
