If your home is beginning to look its age as the result of worn-out vinyl siding, it may be time to consider an upgrade.
If your vinyl siding has seen better days, there are many advantages to replacing it. Here are our top five:
Vinyl siding is the protective shell of your home. It prevents both air and noise pollution while still protecting moisture levels in your home by allowing the walls to breathe.
2. Energy efficiency
Vinyl siding insulates your home, increasing its R-value. With today?s energy efficient vinyl technology, you can reduce your home?s energy costs by up to 30 percent.
3. Visual appeal
That avocado green siding from 1970 isn?t exactly in style anymore, and your siding is showing its age. Replacing worn-out siding greatly improves your home?s curb appeal.
In both form and function, vinyl siding improves the overall value of your home. In fact, Remodeling Magazine’s 2013 Remodeling Cost Vs. Value Report states 73 percent of your investment in vinyl siding could be recuperated if you decide to sell your home.
Vinyl siding lasts and typically comes with an extensive warranty. This protects your investment so you don?t have to worry about replacing it again.
Can I Just Paint My Old Siding?
Painting vinyl siding will actually cost you more in the long run. How?
- Vinyl and paint are incompatible due to the flexibility of vinyl versus that of the paint.
- Vinyl absorbs heat, and particularly with dark paint, warps and melts, producing unattractive results.
- Vinyl contracts in the cold, exposing unsightly unpainted surfaces between planks.
- Paint weakens vinyl, deteriorating the chemical structure of the vinyl as the paint is exposed to UV light.
- Painting is costly and time consuming, especially considering that paint will crack and peel in a very short time.
