VINYL SIDING:

Vinyl siding is the most popular type of siding in the U.S., accounting for approximately 50% of all siding and growing. The reasons for vinyl's popularity are mainly price, low maintenance requirements, and product improvements that have made vinyl a more attractive option, both literally and figuratively.

No siding is 100% maintenance-free

Vinyl siding is the least expensive siding to have installed. And it doesn't need to be painted. Both very attractive selling features. However, it does need to be cleaned regularly. Over time, vinyl oxidizes, leaving a chalky residue that makes your house look dull. So don't believe the common misconception that vinyl siding is 100 percent maintenance-free. It doesn't rot or peel, or need to be painted, so vinyl requires a lot less maintenance that other types of siding, but no siding is truly maintenance-free. 

Shorter product life reduces cost-effectiveness

As for the cost savings, although vinyl is relatively inexpensive initially, and you save money on paint and painting, it has a lower life expectancy than some of the other types of siding. You can expect to get 25 to 50 years out of vinyl siding, which may or may not affect your purchasing decision, as you may be long gone by then.

Don't believe the common misconception that vinyl siding is 100 percent maintenance-free.

A drawback to consider with vinyl siding is that vinyl is not fireproof. It will melt from heat from the BBQ if it is too close, or from a fire that is up to 100 feet away. It can chip or crack in cold weather or if struck by hard objects. Also, vinyl generally does a good job of providing a shell for your home, keeping the elements out. However, it can hide the problem if certain elements do manage to penetrate the shell, such as excess moisture or termite infestation.

 Tips to increase wind resistance- Some people dislike vinyl siding because it does not hold up well in high winds, causing a flapping noise or even stripping off. If you have these concerns, buy a thicker panel (0.044 to 0.046), which will also look more like real wood. And have your installers use a double-hem mounting, which tends to be more wind-resistant than single-hem mounting. Like any type of siding, vinyl siding requires quality installation by experienced, professional installers. Vinyl siding can become wavy or buckled if installed too tightly, which can allow water to penetrate and rot the underlying structure. It needs to have enough “give” to be able to expand and contract with changes in temperature. This is more important in areas that have freeze-thaw cycles, yet still a factor in warmer climates.
