Vinyl siding is one of the most popular siding choices in America. Vinyl siding in NJ, as well as in America has made a huge difference in older homes, as well as preserving the houses life. However, as with any good thing there are pros and cons to vinyl siding. Below we will go over the pros and cons of this popular material.
Vinyl siding is the most inexpensive of all the sidings that are on the market today. Even more helpful is the fact that the growing popularity of this siding makes it possible to get a few free extras, such as window casings and gutters, added in.
The biggest selling point of vinyl siding in NJ, or anywhere else in America, is the fact that it is so durable. It never needs painting, a chore everyone hates to take on, doesn’t show scratches, never peels, dents, or rots, and most importantly is not affected by snow, salt, cold, or rain.
Vinyl siding is a low maintenance siding as well. A quick wash with a power hose once a year and you are good to go.
One of the cons of vinyl siding include the fact that PVC, a material used in vinyl siding is said to be carcinogenic, making it possible to be breathing toxic fumes if the house ever catches on fire.
Heat sources should be kept away from vinyl siding as it is said to be more flammable than other sidings are.
The only other drawback to vinyl siding is the fact that once you have it you are stuck, unless you want to replace it of course. While there are plenty of styles and color choices, once you have it, you can’t paint it or change the color when you want.
