We realized quite a long time ago what a cost-effective way it is to safeguard the exterior walls of your house, and nowadays a lot of people have caught on. That’s why we want to give you more information on what exactly vinyl siding is and what it can do for your house.
The Whats of Vinyl Siding
Vinyl siding is, in essence, a plastic exterior for the house. It looks like wood clapboard but it’s actually mainly made from PVC (polyvinyl chloride) resin and it’s installed on top of the exterior walls like a shell. Its purpose is to both protect and decorate the house. Sidings are a very common product in North America, and vinyl is ranked as the most popular siding material in the United States and Canada.
The Hows of Vinyl Siding
As mentioned previously, vinyl siding is used both for protection and decoration. While it’s nice that the siding can make the house’s walls look brand new or bring a sense of color to them, generally the most important reason for having vinyl siding installed is protection. There’s a multitude of things a good siding protects from, including extreme weather conditions from torching summers to freezing winters. It also protects the exterior wall underneath it from color fade as well as rot and decay issues – anything that’s polymer-based doesn’t absorb water, which means no water gets trapped behind the siding.
And, perhaps most importantly, when you choose insulated siding, it comes with the added benefit of insulating your house, which helps you with heating and air conditioning bills alike. The added energy-efficiency is also good for the environment.
