Vinyl Siding

in Vinyl

More and more people are doing it than ever before. Even homeowners that swore they never would are succumbing to the temptation. When time grows short and careers and families begin monopolizing your quality time, nobody wants to be stuck working on the weekend doing home maintenance. Unless you have enough money to pay someone else to do it for you, it's likely you as the homeowner are up on the ladder every year in the spring painting your wooden siding or window frames, or at least attempting to clean them both inside and out. If you're sick and tired of the upkeep you have to undergo to maintain that natural wooden look, while your neighbors enjoy the ease of their vinyl siding and vinyl windows, then you might just be ready to throw in the towel and go with the technologically advanced version of the modern sided home!

In the past, many homeowners may have been founded in their concerns about going with vinyl. The material looked quite plastic-like and fake, what some might even term 'tacky' in its younger days. While it has always been an affordable and durable alternative, many people thought it looked that way as it faded throughout the years of weather, sunshine, and general wear and tear. Luckily today technology is keeping up with not only functionality but aesthetics, so that when it comes time for a window replacement or replacement siding, many people are able to lay their fears aside and go with a low maintenance vinyl package.

Replacing windows can be expensive, difficult and tiresome. If you've struggled with windows that are not energy efficient, or simply suffer from the normal ailments of a wooden home like mold, mildew, rot, rust, pitting or peeling, then you are likely ready to look at a vinyl alternative. The color of vinyl home products today never fades due to being dispersed with color throughout, meaning it looks sharp, and can be quickly and easily cleaned with a wet cloth. Put away the step ladder this spring, and clean off your vinyl siding with nothing more than a rag and the garden hose. With that kind of ease, you'll be out enjoying the sunshine in no time, instead of slaving away and sweating all day.

In the winter, if you're worried about losing money while 'heating the outdoors' due to poor insulation then vinyl can really make a difference. Modern vinyl windows and siding are made to be energy efficient so the hot air stays in during the winter, and out during the summer. Features like double insulation on windows help increase energy efficiency, while the actual vinyl material is impenetrable by the cold air, keeping your home warm and snug from all sides, or cool and calm inside when the sun blazes in the summer. If saving money on time, repair, and energy efficiency all sound like positives to you, then it may be time to consider a different kind of home improvement project this summer like an overall switch to vinyl!
