Installation vinyl sidings have become a new trend in houses. A significant percentage of homeowners have reportedly been installing vinyl sidings to be the first line of defense against the elements, especially rain, snow, and sun. Vinyl Sidings also guarantee a comfortable interior and increase the aesthetics of the buildings.
WHAT ARE VINYL SIDINGS?
Vinyl sidings are the exterior siding of a home made from plastic. They are primarily used for weatherproofing and decoration, and to protect the interior of the house from harsh weather conditions. Vinyl sidings imitate wood clapboard and enhance the visual appeal of the home from the outside.
Vinyl sidings comprise two layers: the capstock (the top layer) and the substrate. These layers are made from polyvinyl chloride and resin. They are resistant to UV rays damage, and best suited for keeping the warmth or cold in or out depending on the season.
BENEFITS OF INSTALLING VINYL SIDINGS
Like your windows and doors, vinyl sidings also offer functional and aesthetic purpose to the building. As a homeowner, here are the benefits that the installation of vinyl sidings provide to you.
1. Enhance Energy Efficiency of a Home
One of the primary benefits of vinyl sidings is that they work as a blanket of protection over the studs and to keep the home cooler during the summer, and warmer during the winter by blocking the sun or cold air from entering the home. This improves the energy efficiency of the house.
2. Reduce Utility Costs
Installing vinyl sidings help homeowners to save more money and spend less on electricity bills because vinyl sidings are excellent insulators. They prevent the outdoor temperature from entering the home. As a result, the HVAC works optimally and uses less energy to cool or heat the house.
3. Last Long and Durable
Vinyl sidings are resilient in any harsh weather; hence, they are durable and last longer. The materials used for making vinyl sidings are designed to withstand extreme heat from the sun, hailstorms, thunderstorms, and blizzards. They do not rot, dent, warp, or peel, which ensures that you would enjoy clean and bright looking exterior for many years.
4. Low Maintenance
Vinyl sidings are easier to maintain than bricks and other materials. With water and soap, you can clean vinyl sidings, and they will look clean and fresh. Besides, vinyl sidings do not require painting and can be replaced easily if damaged.
5. Increase in Resale Value
Vinyl sidings improve the overall aesthetics of a building, and this has a positive impact on the value of the house. Because buyers do not have to worry about cracking stucco, rotting wood, or maintenance issues that come with other materials. Besides, vinyl sidings have a waterproofing feature and prevent water damage. All these positive features increase the resale value of the house.
