Vinyl vs. Metal Siding

Sep 08, 2021

Picture of vinyl siding.If you’re planning to replace the exterior cladding on your home, you might be stuck trying to decide between vinyl siding and metal siding. Which is the better choice? For many homeowners, vinyl siding is the far superior option. When compared to siding made from metals like aluminum, vinyl siding is generally:

  • More durable – Vinyl siding is thicker than aluminum siding, and thus more resistant to damage like dents.
  • Easier to maintain – Unlike aluminum siding, vinyl siding never needs to be repainted, which will save you considerable time and effort throughout your years of homeownership.
  • Better for the environment – Insulated vinyl siding is more energy efficient than aluminum siding, so it can ease the strain on your HVAC system and reduce your household’s carbon footprint, not to mention potentially lowering your energy bills.
  • More attractive – Because pigment is infused throughout vinyl siding, this type of cladding is better able to resist scratches and ultraviolet (UV) rays and retain its color. Plus, because vinyl siding is available in so many different styles, colors, and textures, it can easily be customized to your exact preferences.
