Vinyl has become a popular alternative to real wood and aluminum years ago because it is a less expensive option that has a high-quality appearance.

What is Vinyl?

Vinyl is a plastic siding that is made by a mixture of ethylene gas and chlorine, which create a powder known as vinyl resin. An advantage of vinyl is that it can be manipulated to be flexible or as thick and tough as a pipe by melting it and adding different chemicals. Because the thickness can vary, the type of vinyl you choose will depend on the quality you want for your type of project. Typically, thicker vinyl is better quality. It also adds durability and aesthetic appeal.

Benefits of Vinyl

Because vinyl isn’t as costly as wood and is easy to install, it has become a more popular option for siding. Over the years, the quality and variety of vinyl has improved, increasing its acceptance.

Less Maintenance

One of the most attractive qualities of vinyl is that it is very low maintenance. Because it doesn’t need to be painted, upkeep isn’t necessary except washing it once a year, and re-caulking if needed.

Customization

Vinyl is available in many colors and is resistant to color fading. Since it can be designed to resemble wood, you won’t have to jeopardize obtaining the style and appearance you want for your home.

Durability

Thick vinyl is made to withstand strong winds up to over 100 mph. It also resists hot temperatures and rot. With very basic care, vinyl will last a long time.
