Your home’s siding is its “skin.” It is the outer barrier between rain, snow, wind, and the sun’s rays and your home.
Vinyl siding is just one type of siding you can choose for your home. Some homeowners choose wooden siding, stone veneer, fiber cement siding, or mounting blocks. Each type of siding has its benefits and drawbacks.
One of the greatest benefits of choosing vinyl siding is its cost to install. It costs $2 to $7 per square foot, typically averaging $4 per square foot installed. To install vinyl siding on a whole house, the national average is about $9,500. Your vinyl siding project could cost more or less than this figure because of the type of siding you choose, whether you choose to install additional features like trim or soffits, and the size and shape of your house.
Gone are the days of boring, breakable beige vinyl. Today, vinyl siding comes in a wide variety of colors and styles to suit any home, old or modern.
Examples of the vinyl siding styles available to you include:
Some homeowners choose two styles of siding to give their homes unique looks, like using a more intricate type of siding on dormers to make them stand out from the rest of the home.
Vinyl siding has a lot of advantages, but it is not perfect. There is no “perfect” siding. Although vinyl is durable, its colors can fade over time. It can also accumulate dirt and grime, making it necessary for you to clean your siding. Cleaning vinyl siding is not difficult, though – you can clean it yourself with a water and vinegar solution, no power washer necessary.
When vinyl siding wears out or becomes damaged, it is easy to install. Because it is inexpensive and relatively hassle-free, it is the most popular siding choice in America.
