When you’re a homeowner, you know that every decision you make about your home is one you’re going to have to live with for the years to come. What does that mean in terms of your home’s exterior?
When it’s time to upgrade or refresh your home’s appearance, you have siding options. Most common here in the Lowell area, where there are many traditional, contemporary, and transitional homes are wooden clapboard siding and vinyl siding. In this article, we’re going to focus on 4 ways vinyl siding makes your life easier in the long run.
First and foremost: vinyl siding never needs to be painted. This is extremely important, because when your house does need to be painted – which is every couple of years when you have wooden clapboard siding – you either have to do it yourself, which means giving up your free time, or pay a professional to do it, which means giving up quite a bit of your money.
Second: vinyl siding doesn’t need a lot of maintenance. Some people enjoy working on their house, but honestly, with the world being the way it’s being right now, most folks feel like they already have enough on their plate. Knowing that vinyl siding only needs a quick spray with the hose a couple of times a year to stay looking great provides great peace of mind.
Third: vinyl siding can deliver a radical visual transformation without costing a ton of money. When you work with an experienced siding contractor in Lowell, you enjoy the full range of exterior design options. Vinyl siding can be installed in traditional horizontal or vertical configurations, New England Batten Board style, or in combination with wooden clapboard or shingle siding.
Fourth: Vinyl siding delivers lasting performance. As a Lowell siding company, we often tell homeowners you’ll get tired of your vinyl siding a long time before it wears out. It’s not unusual for the best vinyl siding to last more than 60 years!
