When it comes to upgrading the exterior appearance of your home, there are a lot of options to consider, but when analyzing the choices and looking at the pros and cons of each, vinyl siding stands apart from the rest.
In fact, vinyl siding is voted as the number one choice by all Canadians for exterior home cladding. Here are five top reasons why so many Canadians choose vinyl as their homes primary layer of protection against the harsh Canadian elements.
1 – Quick and Easy Installation
Unlike many other types of siding which can be very labour intensive to install, vinyl siding installation is quick and easy. The material is lightweight, making it a relatively simple to install onto your home. This also promises additional benefits to you as the homeowner, by reducing labour costs, and cutting down the length of time the homeowner will be inconvenienced while the installation is completed.
2 – Affordable and Low Maintenance
Vinyl siding is widely popular not only because of the protection it provides and other obvious home improvement benefits, but because of its affordability and cost-saving benefits too. When compared in price to other types of exterior siding and cladding, vinyl is almost always a far less expensive option. Vinyl also requires very little maintenance, unlike wood or stone which can require substantial (and often expensive) upkeep, cleaning vinyl is easy and can be done quickly with a cloth, water, and a general cleaning solution.
3 – Improved Curbside Appeal
Vinyl siding can provide an immediate appearance upgrade to any home, which is why it’s often installed by homeowners prior to putting their home on the market to increase curbside appeal and also, overall home value. It is widely considered as one of the top choices for home improvement projects which can make the biggest difference in general home appeal and value.
4 – Large Selection of Colours, Styles and Accessories
With an enormous selection of colours, styles, and finishes, vinyl siding offers the homeowner an unparalleled number of options during the design process to compliment the appearance and appeal of their home. With additional accent pieces like shutters, louvers and other accessories, vinyl siding allows the homeowner to go beyond and personalize the look of their home to meet their exact tastes.
5 – Durable and Long Lasting
Canadian weather can be incredibly hard on our homes, requiring them to be built to withstand the harshest elements. Vinyl siding goes above the call of duty by being amazingly durable, and capable of withstanding high winds and harsh winters. Vinyl is flexible and therefore doesn’t dent, absorbing the impact from conditions like hail storms, bouncing back and returning to its original position without any sign of damage. Also, unlike wood, vinyl doesn’t chip, warp or peel, it is highly resistant to moisture, and isn’t attractive to bugs or insects.
