Siding is the better and more efficient alternative to exterior wall paint. Apart from its longer service life, it also doesn’t require reapplication and can actually improve the look of your home. Siding is available in a wide selection of materials, but vinyl siding sets itself apart from the rest, thanks to its energy efficiency, durability and affordable price.
The Carpenter’s Touch, your vinyl siding contractor, shares why vinyl is the best long-term exterior protection for your home.
Vinyl siding is the direct upgrade to wood due to its higher durability and better resilience against the elements – especially rain and water damage. It won’t rot or split, and is virtually immune to insect damage.
Thanks to its higher durability and weather resistance, vinyl siding lasts twice as long as wood, with an average lifespan of 25 to 35 years. With proper care and maintenance, it can easily last as long as your house.
As your local siding contractor, we know how important it is for homes today to be as energy-efficient as possible. Getting new siding already increases this, but you can go a step further by installing insulated vinyl siding. Siding essentially works like a blanket that keeps the wall studs, the part of your home where indoor air may escape through, warm during winter and cool during summer.
Installing insulated vinyl siding also has a positive impact on the roof, effectively reducing the moisture levels in the attic that can potentially harm the wooden parts of the roof.
Wood siding remains unmatched in terms of sheer aesthetics as no material can completely replicate the natural look of wood. That said, vinyl siding is a great contender because it has a wider color palette than wood. You aren’t restricted to just wood stains and earth tones; vinyl siding can come in lighter and darker colors as well as color tones that mimic the look of stone, brick and wood.
