3 Common Misconceptions about Vinyl Siding

When it comes to siding for your home, there are many options, and it can be hard to decide what is best. One of the most economical and versatile choices is vinyl siding. Unfortunately, there are many misconceptions about vinyl siding that make people reluctant to use this material. We want to clear up some of those misconceptions.

  1. Vinyl siding isn’t durable: Many improvements have been made to vinyl siding over the years. You can depend on your new vinyl siding to last many years and withstand heavy winds.
  2. Vinyl siding is bad for the environment: Vinyl siding is considered a green material because it is highly recyclable. The idea that vinyl is bad for the environment is usually attributed to the release of a toxin called dioxin during manufacturing. The truth is that the amount of dioxin released is quite minimal, with far more coming from natural fires such as forest fires, fires in your fireplace and volcanoes.
  3. Vinyl siding is unattractive: Vinyl siding doesn’t have to be bland. It is available in many colors, styles and textures. Unlike other siding options, your vinyl siding’s coloring won’t fade, so it will continue to look good for many years.
