Benefits of Vinyl Siding
You’re probably wondering why you should go with vinyl siding over wood or aluminum. Vinyl offers many benefits that you won’t get with other home cladding options. From better energy efficiency to improved curb appeal, it’s your best choice.
Weather-Resistant Siding – Made for Chicago’s Weather
Wood siding warps and rots when exposed to moisture while aluminum siding absorbs heat causing your house to be insufferably hot. Where other types of siding fail, vinyl siding excels.
For instance, vinyl is resistant to warping and rotting because moisture isn’t absorbed into the panels. Similarly, heat isn’t absorbed into vinyl either. This is because it isn’t a conductor of heat like most metals. It’ll be much easier to regulate the temperature of your home.
Low Maintenance Siding
The color of vinyl siding is baked into the panels when it’s manufactured so you’ll never need to paint or stain your siding. The colors will last a lifetime without the fear of fading or discoloring.
Plus, since vinyl siding doesn’t warp or rot, you don’t have to worry about repairing your siding. With only an occasional cleaning, your siding will look as good as it did on installation day.
Energy Efficient Siding From Danley’s
Did you know you can save money on your energy bills with vinyl siding? It’s because of how it’s made. Most vinyl siding has a foam insulated board installed behind each panel. It works like a giant blanket and wraps around the exterior walls of your home.
This prevents outside weather from getting into your home and keeps heated or cooled air inside. Your furnace and air conditioner won’t have to work as hard to meet your desired temperature inside and keep you comfortable.
By keeping heated and cooled air inside your home, you’re able to dictate the temperature with ease. No more freezing under a blanket on cold winter nights.
Durable and Impact-Resistant Siding
It goes without saying that vinyl siding is the most durable home cladding. You already know that it doesn’t warp or rot so moisture is no threat. It’s also impervious to bug and vermin infestations since they’re attracted to moisture, darkness and wood – all of which are not a problem with vinyl siding.
Most importantly, it’s impact resistant. The foam insulation board is to thank for this benefit. It adds a layer of cushioning beneath your siding panels which absorbs the shock when your home is struck. Whether it’s hail or a baseball, nothing will damage your vinyl siding.
Create the Siding of Your Dreams at Danley’s
There are many customization options with vinyl siding. There are different styles, colors and textures that help bring life to your home’s exterior. It’s also very easy to mix and match different styles and colors to create a custom look for your home.
If you like the look of wood but don’t want to deal with all of its problems, you’re in luck. Some vinyl styles such as shake siding replicate the look of real wood. Even with a close inspection, you won’t be able to tell the difference.
Improve Your Home’s Curb Appeal
Vinyl siding is sure to improve your home’s curb appeal. With all of the different styles, colors and textures, you’re sure to find a beautiful combination that’ll enhance your home’s curb appeal.
Also, since it doesn’t warp or rot, it’ll stand tall and look great for decades.
Reduces Outside Noise
The foam insulation board does more than effect your home’s energy efficiency. It also prevents you from hearing outside noises because the sound wave would have to pass through the foam board. The sounds will end up being muffled or not heard at all. Long gone are the days of hearing traffic outside louder than your own TV.
Styles of Vinyl Siding
There are many different styles of vinyl siding available. You can get the more traditional looking double four siding or a more elaborate board and batten siding. The choice is up to you. We’ll go into more detail on the different vinyl siding styles below.
Double Four Siding
When most homeowners think of vinyl siding, double four, or standard siding, is what comes to mind. It’s a traditional overlapping siding that’s extremely common. It’ll give your home a clean, crisp look.
The reason so many homeowners like double four siding is because it’s extremely versatile. It can be the cladding choice for your entire home or can be used to complement other siding styles.
Dutch Lap Siding
Dutch lap is very similar to double four siding but has one major difference – it creates a decorative groove around your home. It adds depth and beauty and gives your home a unique profile.
Dutch lap siding is extremely strong. It’s durable enough to handle anything Chicago weather can throw at it. Even children are no match for the strength of dutch lap siding.
Vertical siding is double four siding turned on its side – the boards run vertically vs. horizontally. The vertical boards create different patterns which highlight the sections of your home nicely. You can use vertical siding to side small sections or the entire home.
The traditional look of vertical siding is sought after by many homeowners. It helps create a truly custom look for your home.
Board and Batten Siding
Board and batten siding is vertical siding with a bit of a twist. It’s composed of alternating width vertical boards. It creates more depth and dimension for your home.
Board and batten siding is usually paired with other siding styles since it’s very complementary. It’s typically found on eaves, gables or an entire side of the home.
Many homeowners like the look of wood shingles. Shake siding mimics the look without all of the warping, rotting and maintenance problems. It has many texture similarities to shingles as well and is available in many different wood grain finishes.
Shake siding is extremely versatile and can be used anywhere on your home but it’s often used to complement other siding styles. It looks great on eaves and gables.
Much like shake siding, scalloped siding is often found on eaves and gables of your home. This is because it’s vastly different than all of the other siding styles. Rather than being straight and angular, it’s rounded.
Scalloped siding has rounded bottoms giving it the nickname, “fish scale siding” because it looks like fish’s scales. It helps give your home a soft, warm feeling by eliminating such harsh lines.
Soffit and Fascia
You can complete your vinyl project with soffit and fascia. Soffit is the underside of the over hanging sections of your roof such as eaves and arches. It closes the space created from the extended roof line.
It’s important to get soffit that has ventilation to help keep attics cooler in the summer months. It also helps prevent moisture from collecting and creating mold.
Fascia is found between the roof line and top of your wall. It creates a horizontal band that works as trim for your home. It adds beauty and is sure to improve your home’s curb appeal.
