When looking at siding a home or business, there are many options from which to choose. Each material has its benefits and drawbacks, but vinyl siding is- by far- one of the easiest to install and maintain. With very little upkeep needed, there are reasons vinyl siding Cincinnati is a top choice. Here are 5 reasons we feel vinyl siding is a fantastic choice.
Cincinnati home and business owners understand the need for a durable long-lasting home exterior. While other sidings may have a tendency to rot, chip, and/or become an inviting environment for insects, as long as it is installed properly, vinyl typically has none of these issues. Depending on chosen thickness, vinyl may withstand wind speeds of over 100 mph allowing it to last through every type of weather Cincinnati has.
2. Environmentally Friendly
When most of us think of plastics, we do not think of environmentally friendly material. Although vinyl is indeed a plastic, its durability, lasting color, and impact on global warming need to be taken into consideration. This material is actually better than most other sidings in almost all categories impacting global warming and overall environmental impacts. Also, according to the Vinyl Siding Institute during production, extra scraps can be melted down and reused. It was actually designed with sustainability in mind.
3. Easy to Install
Installing vinyl siding Cincinnati is relatively simple in comparison to other siding options. It requires nails, a hammer, and some additional minimal tools. The more people installing, the more quickly the job will progress; however, installation can be done with a small crew of 1-2 people. Vinyl siding simply hangs on nails and clips one over the next to secure and seal out water.
4. Enhances Curb Appeal
Vinyl siding gives a home a clean, fresh appearance. It comes in a variety of colors, textures, and sizes and can even be made to look like wood.
5. Retains Lasting Color
Unlike wood that needs to be painted and repainted often, vinyl siding Cincinnati is relatively maintenance-free. The siding comes pre-colored in your choice of color and you simply have it installed as-is. Although the sun may lightly bleach out the vinyl color, the bleaching effect is incredibly minimal and can be renewed if needed with simple vinyl-restoration products or just a cleaning. If you tire of your home’s color, you can also paint the vinyl and paint will be lasting as well.
