When vinyl siding was first introduced in the 1960s, it was mainly marketed as a low-maintenance, more attractive substitute for aluminum siding. Since then, manufacturing advances have turned vinyl into one of the most popular choices for home siding.
Touted as nearly indestructible, vinyl siding is weather-proof, insect-proof and fade-resistant. Vinyl siding comes in a vast array of colors and styles, many of which so closely resemble wood that you have to be up close to recognize that it is not real wood. These are some of the reasons that vinyl siding is now used on homes of all sizes and architectural styles.

Vinyl Siding Cost And Colors
Let’s face it, owning a home can be expensive, especially when it comes to remodels and repairs. We all want to get the most out of our money, and that is where vinyl siding comes in. Of all the siding options available, like wood, brick, or fiber cement, vinyl is the least expensive to install, costing, on average, anywhere from $3 to $10 per square foot, depending on the style.
Compared to other siding options, vinyl is low-maintenance and durable, saving you money in the long run, since you won’t need to replace it or repaint it. Vinyl siding also makes your house more energy-efficient, which saves you money on heating and cooling costs. Here are some of the other benefits of vinyl siding:
- Enhances curb appeal
- Resistant to mold and mildew
- Easy to install
- Increases value of your home
- Environmentally friendly
- Protects your home
Vinyl siding comes in hundreds of colors and styles, offering incredible versatility when it comes to the design of your home’s exterior.

Vinyl Siding Installation
Vinyl siding is not without its downfalls if it is not properly installed. Whether or not your local building codes require it, it is highly recommended that your house be wrapped prior to installing vinyl siding. Among the biggest issues with improper installation is having moisture get behind the siding, which can cause rot. Vinyl siding will expand and contract with temperature change, which needs to be accounted for. Whether you’re using insulated or non-insulated panels also impacts installation. Finally, your installer must know how to work around corners, doors, windows, and other fixtures.
