When it comes to choosing a siding material for your home, many people focus on curb appeal and good looks. Often times though, when looks are the focus, you sacrifice ease of maintenance, energy efficiency, and price. While curb appeal is an important aspect of your home, it doesn’t have to be achieved through the sacrifice of other important aspects. With insulated vinyl siding, you can get a combination of all of the factors that make a home great.
Siding is the first thing that people see on your home. Siding pulls the look together and turns a bare wooden structure into a home. It is important to your home’s resale value to make sure it looks nice and appeals to potential buyers. With insulated vinyl siding, this is an easy task to accomplish. One of the primary benefits of using vinyl as a siding material is that it is incredibly versatile. It is manufactured in a wide range of colors, styles, and textures. This means that no matter how you have designed and decorated your home, there is a vinyl option to match and enhance it. Even better, vinyl tends to be manufactured in larger sheets, creating fewer seems upon installation.
Insulated vinyl siding is one of the best ways you can increase your home’s energy efficiency factor. Your siding is one area of your home that is vulnerable to a transfer of air. This means that when you heat your home in the winter, that warm air will be able to flow out through your siding, and the chilly outdoor air will be able to flow in. A similar transfer takes place during the summer with your air conditioning. When this happens, your heating and cooling systems have to work harder, increasing your energy costs. Insulated vinyl siding has one of the highest resistance to heat flow ratings, allowing you to save money, and your home to run more efficiently. Thanks to energy savings, insulated vinyl siding has a return on investment of at least 80 percent.
As a material, vinyl is incredibly durable and low-maintenance. Because it is resistant to water, you won’t have to worry about mold or rotting. You’ll also be able to successfully avoid bugs and fading or cracking due to sun exposure. It’s easy to install, it’s easy to repair, and you won’t have to worry about regular maintenance aside from the occasional light cleaning.
