Choosing siding for your home is no easy feat. Fiber cement, wood, brick, the list goes on. But one type of siding that should always be on the top of your list is vinyl. Vinyl siding offers many benefits without the maintenance of other siding materials.

1. Vinyl siding fits every homeowner’s budget.

Vinyl siding is less expensive than other siding materials and can fit a wide range of budgets, from your first home to your dream home. In addition, it’s the best bang for your buck. Few home improvement projects offer a better payoff than vinyl siding replacement. In fact, according to the 2015 Cost vs. Value Report, new vinyl siding will maintain more than 80% of its value, which is higher than most home improvement projects.

2. Vinyl siding is the easiest siding material to maintain.

Vinyl is extremely easy to maintain. In fact, it hardly requires any maintenance at all. Once vinyl siding is installed it never needs to be painted or re-sealed, saving you time and money, year after year. All it needs is annual cleaning to keep it looking its best.

We recommend washing your vinyl siding with clear water using a garden hose and soft bristled brush. For more information on how to clean your vinyl siding read our blog post here.

3. Ply Gem vinyl siding has an industry-leading warranty.

4. Vinyl siding is durable.

Vinyl is strong enough to withstand storm damage and harsh winds, meaning your home is protected during inclement weather. It’s also incredibly durable and resists denting and scratching.

5. Vinyl siding adds curb appeal.

There are a variety of vinyl siding styles such as lap siding and vertical siding, to fit any house style. These styles come in a number of colors that will match your home’s décor and add curb appeal.

Ply Gem also recently launched six new on-trend siding colors you can choose from to customize your home.

6. Vinyl is energy efficient.

Thanks to the insulation quality of vinyl, homes tend to stay warm in the winter and cool and comfortable during the summer. This means more money stays in your pockets when you pay your utility bill.
