Why Vinyl Siding?

The combination of beauty, low maintenance and affordability has made vinyl siding the most popular cladding material in North America. It can boost your curb appeal, save you time on maintenance, and with steadfast durability, your house will be protected from costly damage by moisture and insects. Another draw to vinyl siding is that it virtually pays for itself. According to Consumer Reports, homeowners who install vinyl siding will recoup about 75 percent of the cost when they sell their property.
