What advantages are there to vinyl siding?

Vinyl siding offers many advantages over and above the two most obvious; improving the look of the home and almost maintenance free. Vinyl siding in Greeley CO is an affordable alternative to other types of siding, the material offers ease of care and is very durable and stylish. Vinyl siding is also friendly to the environment as it takes fewer resources to manufacture and it is totally recyclable.

Vinyl siding is made from Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) which is combined with other materials which adds to its strength and durability, color retention and it flexibility. The material has additives which makes the finished siding resistant to denting and exposure to harsh weather conditions such as extreme cold. The additive titanium oxide protects the color from fading and chalking when exposed to summer sun.

With wood siding the finish is only on the surface, this is not the case with vinyl siding in Greeley CO, the pigment that gives the siding its base color is mixed into the PVC resin, the color goes completely through the material. Because the color is through and through if the siding is scratched, the blemish will be difficult to see, this is not the case with wood and even aluminum siding which is only finished on the surface.

What is nice about this type of material which is colored throughout is the fact that it never has to be scraped, sanded and otherwise prepared for painting like wood does. The only thing that the homeowner has to do periodically to keep the siding looking as good as the day it was installed is to wash it with a mild detergent and the garden hose. As vinyl does crack nor does it rot or rust, water does absolutely no damage. Some vinyl siding is produced with small perforations that lets any condensation escape, this feature is excellent as it prevents mold and mildew forming under the siding. A further benefit is that vinyl siding does not have any attraction to insects; this is not the case with wood.

With all the wonderful advantages that vinyl siding has it still is extremely affordable. Vinyl is one of the most commonly used materials in the construction industry because of its inherent qualities as well as its affordability. Vinyl siding in Greeley CO can easily cost at least 25 percent less than wood and perhaps as much as 50 percent.
