Vinyl is a popular choice because it eliminates the problems
typically associated with other forms of siding. Homes using Vinyl
siding boast less cracking, fading, warping, and buckling. All of this
means that your home’s exterior will maintain its look for much, much
longer. Just like paint, Vinyl siding is available in a variety of
colours and textures — it can also be made to imitate wood or cedar
shake, brick, and even rustic log homes!
As a cost-effective and low-maintenance option, Vinyl siding is
becoming increasingly popular with many homeowners. It’s
energy-efficient and can be EnergyStar certified with foam backing. The extra foam backing results in 4x more insulation than regular siding offers, meaning you pay less money for heating.
Choose your style from many different kinds of vinyl siding available in the marketplace today.
