Are you considering changing the sidings of your home in Cape Cod, Massachusetts because they’re old and worn out? Do you want better quality sidings that can last longer? If you have wood sidings in your home they may have started to warp and fade.

If you’ve been living in Cape Cod for a long time, it is not surprising that your wood sidings need replacement. They may have survived Hurricane Bob in 1991 and the North American blizzard of 2005 but maybe that’s just how far they can resist extreme weather conditions. Rather than install a new and more expensive set of wooden sidings, you can consider vinyl instead. Here are the advantages of vinyl sidings for your home:

Cost

Vinyl sidings cost as low as $4 per square foot and are the cheapest siding material for your home. Installation will cost at least $1 per square foot if you plan to do it yourself. If you ask home improvement contractors on the cost of installing other kinds of sidings, you’ll most likely choose vinyl because of their price.

Performance

Vinyl siding can last long even with changing weather in Cape Cod. Since your home is often exposed to rain, snow or wind, it’s vital that it gets a second layer of skin such as sidings. Vinyl sidings can withstand wind speeds even up to 110 mile per hour, and heat, moisture and cold. As an added bonus, vinyl sidings don’t have to be painted since color permeates the material.

Durability

Vinyl sidings like Cape Cod roofing can resist rain, cold and snow. They don’t peel or rot like wood, hardly gets dented, and can be used over your home’s original wooden sidings. These modern vinyl sidings have come a long way since their introduction in the 1950s, and now give outstanding durability with a variety of attractive textures and styles.

Color

Unlike the very first production of vinyl sidings, newer ones come in more colors that don’t fade as quickly. Color is baked through the vinyl sidings and is not applied like paint. You can expect colors to fade after an average of five years, which is still longer than those of other siding materials. These sidings can match your Cape Cod windows and create a beautiful facade.

Vinyl Cape Cod siding is more often preferred for their affordability, durability, and variety in color. You can also ask your contractor for siding insulation as added protection for your home. For more information about vinyl sidings, read Dummies.com and EzineArticles.com.
