Is Vinyl Siding a Good Investment?

Vinyl siding is the best-selling house cladding in most areas of the United States, for several good reasons. In terms of affordability, durability, and ease of maintenance, you can hardly find a better option. But does that make it a sound investment? In other words, can you expect newly installed vinyl siding to yield monetary advantages when compared to other types of cladding? 

Does it Add Value to Your Home? 

According to the National Association of Realtors, exterior cladding projects provide homeowners with a notably high return on their investment. For example, when you sell your home, you can expect to recoup 83% of your vinyl siding investment. And a 2012 CNBC report puts that number at 89%. To use a round figure, this means that if your vinyl siding project costs $15,000, you may be able to add $13,350 to your asking price when you sell your home.  

Is it Energy Efficient?

Your siding’s R-Value, or its ability to resist heat traveling through it, is another factor to consider. The higher the R-Value the better the thermal performance of the insulation. For residential cladding, some innovative companies like Alure Home Improvements will wrap your home’s exterior with high-performing insulation before installing their siding. This meticulous process can translate into appreciable energy savings on your monthly bill.

What About Long-Lasting Beauty?

If you want siding that will look great for decades with minimal maintenance, you can’t go wrong with vinyl options. To remove dirt and grime from your siding, all that’s required is a good hose-down with a spray nozzle or a pressure washer set on a medium spray pattern. The fact that vinyl siding has color infused in the panels and, thus, won’t chip or flake also means that siding you invested in for curb appeal will surely deliver on that front. And because vinyl siding comes in numerous colors, styles, and textures, you will have a wealth of great aesthetic choices, regardless of your home’s architectural style or your personal tastes.

Many local home improvement centers carry vinyl siding, but you can’t always find the aesthetic features you like. For that, it’s better to explore the options at Alure Home Improvements.
