3 Reasons to Choose Vinyl Siding Over Painting Your Home

considering painting or vinyl siding

If you are looking for a way to give your home a new look, chances are that you are considering painting or vinyl siding. It can be hard to decide between the two, but one has a few benefits over the other.  Below are some benefits of using vinyl siding over painting.

  • Cost – Even though you are going to pay more up front, what you save is going to make it more than worth it. An average home can have vinyl siding put on it for the same price of painting it 3-4 times using high-quality paint.
  • Maintenance – Traditional aluminum or wood siding has to be scraped before being primed and painted every three or four years so that it looks great and it’s protected from the rain, wind and snow. If you use vinyl, you just have to spray it down with your garden hose. It makes it a lot easier to keep your home looking good.
  • Many Colors and Styles – When you choose vinyl, it comes in many different colors and styles. This means that you’re able to change your home’s look completely and easily. If you paint your home, you can only change its color.

As you can see, siding is a better choice over painting for a variety of reasons. It saves you money, it is easier to maintain, and it comes with a lot of choices. That’s why you see a lot of homes decorated this way rather than being painted.
