In the past, vinyl had a bad reputation. It was seen as a cheap, plastic material that was prone to fading and causing problems. However, with advances in technology, this is simply no longer true, and vinyl is one of the best materials that you can choose if you’re purchasing new windows or siding for your house. In fact, vinyl siding in South Jersey is quite common today.
To be technical, the vinyl used in windows and siding is PVC, or polyvinyl chloride. It is blended with various additives that make it strong and resistant to chemicals, sunlight, and water. Our windows and siding are made of uPVC, which means that the material contains no plastic.
Advantages of Vinyl Siding:
- It will last a long time. Wood siding may eventually need to be replaced after being damaged by moisture. Vinyl siding, when properly installed, can last for decades without ever needing to be replaced.
- It requires very little maintenance. Unlike wood siding which needs to be repainted every few years, vinyl siding requires almost no work whatsoever to maintain. If it becomes dirty, simply wash it with a mixture of water and vinegar or a mild detergent.
- You can get just about any look you want. Vinyl siding is available in hundreds of different colors. Since the color is completely incorporated into the PVC, you don’t need to worry about it flaking or peeling off like wood or aluminum siding. Plus, plenty of different styles and textures are available to mimic the appearance of natural materials like wood.
Advantages of Vinyl Windows:
- They have good insulation. PVC is an excellent insulator, which means that it will help keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer, which can help you save money on your energy bills.
- They come in all sizes, styles, and colors. Whether you need double-hung windows for your living room or a slider window for your bathroom, vinyl windows can be made to fit every room in your home. Plus, they are available in several other colors besides white to beautifully match your decor.
