Vinyl Siding Installation



Vinyl siding is an increasingly popular option for many homeowners. When installing new siding, here are some items you should consider:

The Good:

• Affordable

• Durable, but lightweight

• Easy to install

• Will not be damaged by termites or other insects

• Low maintenance

• Does not need to be painted

• Individual panels can be replaced if damaged

• Comes in many different colors and textures

• Insulated panels are available

The Bad:

• Color may fade

• Darker colors will absorb excess heat

• Thin, uninsulated vinyl has poor energy efficiency

• Can be damaged by severe weather

The Bottom Line:

Vinyl siding is an affordable and durable option. It will last year after year with little to no maintenance. The options are endless in terms of color and texture. If energy efficiency is important, it’s best to choose a vinyl that includes a layer of insulation. If the necessary precautions are not taken, moisture underneath the siding can lead to water damage and mold growth.
