Since the 1950s, vinyl siding has gained popularity due to its appearance and durability. At Exteriors Plus in Savage, Minnesota, we specialize in home exterior renovations and often recommend vinyl siding for our customers. Replacing the siding on your home can be a big task which is why we also recommend hiring a siding contractor to do the work for you. We love waking up every day knowing that our services go towards serving our customers. If you are considering vinyl siding for your home, here’s how long you can expect it to last – spoiler alert – it’s a long time.

 

Maintenance

Vinyl siding requires very little maintenance. The materials vinyl siding is made of naturally resists grime and are pest and rot resistant, allowing you to rest assured that your home will be very protected from the elements. You do, however, want to clean the sides of your home once a year to check for any damage and to make sure your house is clean.

Durability

Vinyl siding is created to withstand damage from hail, ice, and other inclement weather. For this reason, you often do not have to worry about replacing siding. This durability makes vinyl siding a very good choice for your home, especially given the commonality of thunderstorms in Minnesota. While you do want to check for damage every now and then, it is not a big concern. For questions regarding the installation of siding on your home, reach out to us today!

Long Lifespan

With increased durability and even lack of maintenance required, vinyl siding can last for 40-60 years. In some cases, this material can last for up to 100 years! This is one of the biggest reasons we often recommend this siding. As a vinyl siding contractor, we want our customers to be happy with our work and the products we use and nothing is more pleasing than having siding that will last for an entire lifetime.

Replacing

Vinyl siding is relatively easy to install and replace. It is an extremely versatile siding material, which makes it easier to replace than wood siding. But, because it is so durable, it rarely requires replacement and even though it is pretty easy to install, we recommend hiring a professional to do it.
