Even with the wide array of residential siding products available on the market today, one siding product nearly always gains serious consideration from our clients, and for good reason. New Jersey vinyl siding offers several great advantages for homes in our climate. Here are four of the most important.
1. Low maintenance. Vinyl siding is extremely easy to maintain, which for most people is its biggest selling point. Vinyl won’t rot and cannot be harmed by mold or insects. It never needs sanding or painting like wood, and fades very little over time.
2. Performance. New innovations in its chemical makeup and improved installation techniques have made vinyl one of the best performing siding choices available. Vinyl siding can withstand most weather conditions without damage. Depending on the grade, it can last for many decades, and some manufacturers are now offering lifetime transferable warranties.
3. Affordability. Another appeal of vinyl siding is that it’s less expensive than wood. Medium-grade vinyl costs around $1.60 per square foot installed, while mid-grade cedar clapboard can run around $4 per square foot even before trim and paint. In addition, vinyl siding is easier and faster to install than wood, saving on the overall labor cost.
4. Versatility. Do you want a certain color or texture to complement your home’s exterior? You’ll find it in vinyl. Vinyl siding can be manufactured to look like wood grain, in any configuration and any length, and in any color of the rainbow.
