The reason that vinyl siding is a good choice is that, when installed properly, it is very durable, is not easy to dent, is rust proof and also fade resistant. Considering that we need it to last for a long time, we can see that these are important qualities.
What can we say of any possible disadvantages? Well, if you’re looking for vinyl siding to provide you with extra insulation, you would be disappointed as it will not increase energy efficiency. Another thing to be aware of is that in the event of a fire, toxins that are harmful to health could be emitted from the vinyl siding.
As can be the case with many types of exterior cladding, in certain elements, vinyl siding can be prone to damage. For example, extremes of weather temperature can affect it. If temperatures become too hot, the siding could start to warp, melt and start to distort. If the temperature goes to the other extreme and becomes too cold, it can become brittle and easier to crack.
From this brief review, we can see that vinyl siding can be a very good choice of exterior cladding, but it should be installed by someone who knows how to do it correctly.
