In our extensive time in the business, we’ve developed our techniques of installing vinyl siding to make sure the exterior of your house looks fantastic for years to come. But why install vinyl in the first place?
Advantages of Vinyl Siding on Long Island
Long Island has a climate and accompanying weather patterns which require a siding solution that can handle many different challenges. Vinyl siding excels in many different conditions in terms of weather and temperature. Due to the composition of vinyl siding, it not only handles the elements incredibly well but provides you with the best value in terms of the quality you receive for its cost.
Vinyl Siding is Cost Effective
Of all the options of exterior siding out there, vinyl siding is easily the most cost effective. It’s no wonder why vinyl siding is the most popular type of siding in the United States and has been in this position since 1995 according to the Vinyl Siding Institute. It also provides long-term savings as vinyl siding is often listed to last the longest among siding types if proper maintenance is performed.
Vinyl Siding is Durable
We mentioned before that vinyl can definitely stand up to everything that Long Island weather can throw at it. Vinyl is rated to be able to withstand winds as high as 110 miles per hour according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency. These gusts of wind are typically seen at the more powerful end of category 2 hurricanes. Vinyl siding is also totally rot resistant, pest resistant and can adjust to both extreme hot and cold temperatures.
Vinyl Siding is Pest Resistant
Unlike other siding options, vinyl siding is 100% pest resistant. Made out of high strength polyvinyl chloride, pests will not be able to penetrate the exterior of your house if you install vinyl siding. Termites and carpenter ants specifically look for wood to nourish their colonies so they won’t be an issue. Birds like woodpeckers and nuthatches which can peck into other forms of siding will find it impossible to get through the barrier that vinyl siding provides your house. If you’ve had pest problems in the past with the siding on your Long Island home, vinyl siding is the answer you’ve been looking for.
Vinyl Siding is Low Maintenance
Vinyl siding also provides you with something most forms of exterior cladding cannot: time. How does it do this? Because vinyl siding is so low maintenance you are left with time to do the things you actually want to do rather than putting work into your exterior siding. Vinyl does not require painting, staining or caulking like other exterior cladding types. Vinyl siding also just requires once or twice a year washing, especially for areas in the shade which might develop algae. Most hardware stores provide algae remover that you can attach to a garden hose which is easy to apply and washes off simply.
