Vinyl siding is a durable form of plastic that replicates the look of other residential siding materials like wood or even stone. It comes in several different styles and colors and is a popular siding material for many reasons. Here are some of the top reasons why many homeowners choose vinyl siding over other siding options for their homes.

It’s budget-friendly.

Vinyl siding is one of the cheapest home siding options available. While vinyl siding costs about $2 per square foot installed, your other options will almost always be significantly more expensive. For example, wood siding costs $8 to $12 per square foot, stucco siding costs $5 to $9 per square foot, and natural stone siding costs $28 to $50 per square foot.

It’s versatile.

Vinyl is also one of the most versatile options when it comes to siding. You get to choose from a variety of colors, accessories, and trims to make the exterior of your home exactly what you want it to be. 

It never needs to be painted.

Unlike many other siding materials, you never have to worry about tackling the daunting task of prepping and painting your home’s exterior. The coloration of vinyl siding is baked into the material instead of being layered on top. That means it won’t chip or scratch off, resulting in long-lasting beautiful color.

It’s low maintenance.

Since there is no paint, that also means vinyl is very low maintenance. To get rid of dirt, cobwebs, and other debris, all you have to do is spray it down with water and a gentle cleaning product, like dish soap or vinegar. Consider power washing it once a year to get off any deep dirt and grime.

It’s eco-friendly.

Vinyl is considered one of the greenest options available for residential siding. Vinyl outperforms other siding materials by producing virtually no waste and having less impact on climate change. Vinyl siding can also be recycled, making it a great sustainable option for those who want something eco-friendly.
