Vinyl Siding Benefits for Cold-Weather Homes

Vinyl siding is a popular choice among homeowners thanks to its affordability and reputation for low maintenance.

Homebuilders and remodelers trust vinyl siding in chilly climates, in particular, because they know vinyl endures the impacts of harsh winter weather. If you need help choosing the right siding material for your cold-climate home, consider the following benefits of vinyl.

Comfort and savings

Vinyl siding increases a home’s energy efficiency, keeping occupants cozy during cold weather, while also increasing the value of your home. You save money up front paying less for vinyl (compared to other materials), helping you pay lower heating bills in the long run and recoup more of your home-improvement investment.

Minimal upkeep

Today’s vinyl siding is engineered to withstand precipitation, wind, and severe temperatures, year after year. It protects your home’s exterior from costly damage, such as warping, twisting, and rotting. You also don’t need to re-paint or re-finish your home’s siding following a few seasons of cold weather, like you do with other siding materials.

Installation flexibility

Professional siding installers can place vinyl siding on new home exteriors or over existing siding on older homes. The latter is ideal for homes built with a less-durable siding material that has already endured harsh weather conditions for many years. This speeds up the remodeling process and quickly restores integrity to your home’s exterior.

Less exterior noise

When vinyl siding is installed with foam backing for superior insulation, the added layer also helps soundproof your home. This reduces the amount of noise generated by stormy weather, providing a quiet and cozy atmosphere where you spend most of your time during the winter.
