Beginning in the 1950s, contractors began lining homes with vinyl siding to protect them against environmental elements. Back then, it wasn’t the most popular type of siding available. Unfortunately, vinyl siding wasn’t considered very attractive and it was prone to cracking and sagging.
Today’s high-performance vinyl siding looks quite beautiful and is way more durable, which is why an increasing number of new homes use it. Better yet, it only costs a fraction of the price of wood siding. Unlike wood, vinyl resists excessive moisture, so it won’t corrode or rot over time. Vinyl is manufactured to withstand a variety of different environmental elements over time.
Do you hate having to paint your house every few years? Vinyl siding is extremely low-maintenance and does not require a fresh coat of paint from time to time. In fact, the only maintenance it needs is periodic washing, saving you time and money.
Anyone living in the South knows how devastating a termite infestation can be. Termite infestations can cause thousands of dollars in damage to your home. In addition to resisting excessive moisture, vinyl siding is termite-resistant, which is one less thing you’ll have to worry about as a homeowner.
Vinyl siding is a classic and versatile way to guard any house. More than just a fashion statement for your home, vinyl siding plays an important part in your house’s weather protection. It helps to keep the elements out and provides support as a good shoulder to lean on for your insulation.
Vinyl siding also helps to shed water, keeping unwanted moisture, which can lead to things like mildew and mold, out of your home. Made of polyvinyl chloride (which is commonly known as PVC), vinyl siding is flame retardant in nature, providing peace of mind to families who are concerned about house fires.

To give you some perspective, within the lifespan of your vinyl siding, you could have a child, that child could graduate high school, have a child of their own, and that child could graduate high school.
