In the past people have looked down on vinyl siding. The complaints were it looked cheap, had few color options and fell apart quickly. That hasn’t been an accurate view of vinyl siding for some time. Siding comes in more colors and options than ever. It’s durability and maintenance free attributes have contributed to it’s rise in popularity. In fact, according to the Vinyl SidingInstitute, since 1995 more people have chosen vinyl siding than any other siding option. That includes new homes not just remodels.
Don’t think that choosing vinyl as a smart choice will inhibit your homes style and appeal. Vinyl is a versatile product. The latest trend is to install multiple styles of vinyl or to pair it with other siding materials.
