The reasons for this tremendous growth in popularity include all the choices in trim and accent options, more styles and finishes, and a full spectrum of colors that help to achieve the ideal exterior siding style for any type of home in any neighborhood; from historic to contemporary.
The colors of vinyl siding, once only available in very traditional pastels and earthy colors, have become darker, bolder and richer in tones like deep red, dark green, deep blues and more. The Norandex/Reynolds colors feature unsurpassed color retention, helping homes stay beautiful for years.
The vinyl products of today are also a great value, offering the lowest installed cost and the lowest life-cycle cost over the life of a home. Vinyl requires no painting and very low maintenance. In fact, according to a Cost vs. Value Report in a 2005 issue of Remodeling Magazine, homeowners who reside their homes with vinyl siding typically recover nearly 95 percent of the cost when selling their homes.
With the ability to withstand high winds and a composition that resists heat, cold and moisture, vinyl siding retains its stunning aesthetics over time; vinyl siding never needs paint. The only maintenance it will need is a simple wash with a soft cloth and garden hose to keep it looking great; a feature today's strapped-for-time homeowners fully appreciate!
No matter the color of vinyl siding, it's green! Vinyl siding uses minimal raw material in production, and nearly all scrap is reprocessed into new vinyl products, meaning nearly zero waste. Additionally, because there is no need for paint, stain, caulk, etc., maintenance-related toxins are also reduced.
