If you’re considering a replacement to your home’s siding, the solution at the top of your list should be low-maintenance vinyl siding, and this is true for several reasons. Not only is it weatherproof, but you won’t ever have to re-paint it or do anything more than give it a cleaning every few years. If you’ve ever had to re-paint the exterior of a home, you’ll know how messy and how tedious a job it can be to undertake a project like that. Here are some other reasons you should make vinyl siding your first choice when it comes to any kind of siding replacement.
Vinyl siding is well known for its toughness and durability, even under extreme conditions. It can withstand winds of up to 180 mph, which are winds stronger than a Category 5 hurricane would generally produce. It can also endure powerful rainstorms, hail, and snow without being compromised. That means that under virtually any kind of weather conditions, you can count on vinyl siding to protect you against what’s coming. There aren’t even any visible nails which might account for its superior performance under such conditions, because all connections are completely hidden from view.
Anyone concerned about the environment will appreciate the eco-friendly nature of vinyl siding. Since it requires no wood or other natural resources, it does not deplete the natural resources of the environment, making it a sustainable choice as a building material. It also does not have any paint or stain which might leach into the surrounding environment and cause problems with the natural flora or fauna. Since it never needs to be re-painted, it can eliminate the possibility of paints or stains being introduced into any local environment.
Ongoing Ease of Maintenance
Virtually all types of siding which make use of wood or fiber cement must be re-painted periodically because they fade and chip away when exposed to weather conditions. In contrast to this, vinyl siding requires no painting or staining ever, and all you’d ever have to do in the way of maintenance is to wash it every few years with ordinary soap and water. To save yourself some time and effort, you could even have your vinyl siding pressure-washed, which is a straightforward and easy process to perform. You can either rent the necessary equipment or pay to have a professional perform the service for you. Even a garden hose and a simple nylon brush would be sufficient for the task if you choose to do it yourself.
