When making just about any decision, it is helpful to make a list of the pros and cons of each option you are facing. It isn’t just about how many items are listed on each side, but about the overall importance of each one. If you are considering new siding for your home, this same process can be used to determine if vinyl siding is a good option. Here are a few of the pros and cons to consider.
- Pros of Vinyl Siding- There are many advantages involved, which may be why vinyl siding has gained such popularity in recent years. One advantage is that it can be paired with insulation to make your home more energy-efficient. This is a huge benefit because you can enjoy a more comfortable home and lower heating and cooling costs for years to come. Vinyl siding is also very cost-effective and widely available. It is easy to maintain, while being durable and resistant to damage even in harsh weather. Another big plus is that it never needs painting.
- Cons of Vinyl Siding- Although there are numerous styles and color options, the choices are not quite as extensive as other types of siding. This only becomes a disadvantage, however, if you are simply unhappy with all the options offered, which is a rare case. You should pick your color choice carefully, as vinyl siding cannot be effectively painted afterwards. Another minor inconvenience is that, should a panel become damaged, it can mean removing and replacing a larger section than would be necessary with other types of siding.
