When you ask siding contractors about the top cladding options for residential homes, vinyl siding is often included as one of the most popular choices. But despite having a good reputation among professional builders and homeowners, this type of siding still suffers from a few myths and misconceptions.
In this post, ATD Restoration lays down the facts behind some common misconceptions about vinyl siding.
“Vinyl Siding Gets Worn Out Easily”
While it may be true that other siding materials could be stronger than vinyl, vinyl siding is still generally considered sturdy and durable. It can resist a variety of elements and prove to be even stronger and more long-lasting if treated and maintained properly. And since it requires minimal upkeep, it doesn’t really take much to see how far vinyl siding could go.
“Vinyl Siding Will Make My Home Look Cheap”
A quick look at vinyl siding photos can easily disprove this claim. Thanks to modern manufacturing and siding installation techniques, today’s vinyl siding has a more realistic and sophisticated look. It’s also available in a wide selection of colors, which have been developed to last for many years. No doubt, vinyl siding can enhance the appeal of your home and won’t make your exterior look cheap at all.
“Vinyl Siding Is Not Eco-Friendly”
As mentioned earlier, vinyl siding can last for several years, and it’s quite easy to maintain. This minimizes the need or frequency of siding replacement — which means it doesn’t end up in the landfill often. Apart from that, vinyl is also a recyclable material. When it reaches the end of its service life, you can turn it over to recycling facilities where the material can be melted and made into new plastic products.
