1. Low Maintenance: Vinyl siding can deliver a decent wood look without costly, time consuming maintenance and repair. Vinyl siding doesn’t split; peel or rot like wood and it never needs to be scraped, stained or painted.

Today’s vinyl options will add beauty and value to your home, and the materials used in today’s manufacturing process doesn’t fade like in past and like paint does over time.


2. The Price is Right
. According to the Vinyl Siding Institute, vinyl siding has the lowest total installed cost of any exterior cladding material on the market. In comparison, brick is about 426 percent more expensive to purchase and install. Also, the initial purchase price and labor of fiber cement is 63 percent higher than vinyl siding.

3. Warranties: According to the Vinyl Siding Institute, warranties offered by vinyl siding manufacturers are typically 50 years, and some products come with lifetime warranties that can be transferred to the next owner.

4. Lots of Options: You can choose from thousands of different options, from panel style, color, to accessories. Your choices aren’t limited.

Older homes in towns like Braintree and Weymouth have such great details (detailed moldings and window mantles) that we often want to keep and give character to the house.  Accessories options with vinyl siding allow you to keep the historic look while still having a low-maintenance home.
