As with every home, the exterior matters. While the cement and the wood keep your house upright, its “second skin” shields them from the harsh elements of mother nature. This is where the importance of vinyl siding comes in.
Carolina Custom Exteriors, your trusted siding contractor explains more below, particularly what makes vinyl siding an ideal option.
Acts As a “Second Skin”
As previously stated, vinyl siding serves as the second skin to shield your house. Siding is made of strips of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) that is made to look like traditional wood siding.
Ask any siding or roofing contractor and they’ll say that the traditional colors of vinyl siding are either beige or pastel. Recently, however, richer, deeper colors are slowly being infused with vinyl siding. Colors baked into vinyl siding last longer than on other materials.
As for how it will hold up against wind, most siding is rated for winds up to 110 mph. If ever it does get ripped off, vinyl siding will be easier for your siding contractor to re-install.
In the end, vinyl siding’ popularity lies in its affordability. Coupled with the fact that it is long-lasting, energy-efficient and comes in a wide range of colors to choose from, this makes it the perfect choice for your next home improvement project.
