When your house is almost complete, it is time to give it a unique aesthetic look. The choices you make for its roof color, siding color and style, windows, and landscaping all communicate to visitors and passers-by what you like and value in a home.
Siding is an important part of your home’s exterior. For an affordable, durable exterior, choose vinyl siding.
If thinking of the term “vinyl siding” brings images of tacky, beige plastic exterior walls to mind, think again. Vinyl siding comes in a variety of colors and styles that can make it look like wood and stone siding. Sometimes, it can be very difficult to tell vinyl siding from wooden siding without actually touching it.
The three basic types of vinyl siding available for homes are:
On average, vinyl siding costs between $2 and $7 per square foot. To install vinyl siding on the average two-story home, it can cost about $6,000 to about $13,000, with a national average of about $9,500.
There are a few factors that determine what you will pay for your vinyl siding project. One of these is the style of vinyl siding you choose; plain siding styles cost less than textured siding meant to look like wood or stone. Another is the size and layout of your home – if you have a large home or a home with irregularly shaped or sized exterior areas, expect to pay more than a homeowner with a basic square house will pay.
In its early days, vinyl siding developed a bad reputation for breaking easily and being inconsistently colored. Initially, it was developed as an alternative to aluminum siding. Today, vinyl siding is the most popular choice of siding for homeowners for a few reasons. One of these is the advances in manufacturing that made modern vinyl siding far sturdier than its first iteration. Another is its cost – typically, vinyl siding is the most cost-effective choice for homeowners.
