Vinyl Siding Installation is popular in homes, but some people are hesitant to have vinyl siding installed because of some misconceptions. FactoryDirectSiding.com debunks myths about vinyl siding and how it can actually improve your home’s curb appeal, value, and energy efficiency.

Myth 1 – Vinyl Siding Is Not Visually Appealing

Back in the 1950x when vinyl siding was just introduced, most people thought that it was a cheaper siding option and boring to look at. It was not a popular choice for historic renovations. However, due to technological advancements, you can now choose from a wide array of colors and custom finish. These colors are also fade-resistant even if exposed to too much sunlight. You don’t even have to paint over vinyl siding. There are also period color options that look great for historic homes.

Myth 2 – Vinyl Siding Is Not Durable

Vinyl’s lightweight feature may indicate less durability. However, this type of siding is not only resistant to wind but also to heat, moisture, and cold.

Myth 3 – Vinyl Siding Is Not Environment-Friendly

It has been said that the manufacturing process of vinyl siding harms that environment. Some may also say that this type is not recyclable. According to experts, excess vinyl siding can be melted and turned into other useful products. In addition, the amount of harmful gases that is emitted during the manufacturing process is no more than 1% of the total amount that enters the environment per year.

Myth 4 – Vinyl Siding Is Not Energy-Efficient

It was believed that vinyl siding does not help lessen energy consumption. Nowadays, there are several energy-efficient vinyl siding options on the market. There are also insulated vinyl siding products that can further save you money on electric bills.
