How To Pick The Right Vinyl Siding For Your Home

Have you decided that vinyl siding is right for you home? It is an easy choice. Maintaining wood siding can feel a lot like renting paint. You slap a few coats on your home and in 5 years you’re out there painting again. Vinyl siding offers a permanent solution that, if done right, will resist the passage of time and protect the wood of your house from the harmful effects of severe weather. But, now that you’ve chosen vinyl as an upgrade, you’re still left with a question: “Which vinyl siding is the right one?” Hopefully, we can shed some light on that question.

Do I want to stand out?

You may be thinking that your home would look awesome in teal or purple, but before you take that bold step you should know that it could affect the value of your home in the eyes of a potential buyer. Even if you don’t imagine you will ever sell your home, it is still a good idea to consider a home sale in your plan. Look around your neighborhood and see what color tones are being used and consider talking to a real estate agent to see what color could increase your home’s sale value.

Will my color choice cost me more?

Not all colors are created equal. If you choose an exotic or rare color, you can expect to pay more. Common colors are used by a larger customer base, and when vinyl siding companies can sell to a wider base, they are able to pass their savings on to their customers. They are also inclined to do so because reducing the price means they will ensure larger bulk orders for that color style.

What style works with my home?

This is the most obvious question on our list, but it deserves mentioning. If you have a fence or deck that is painted a certain color, you are going to want to match those design elements. If your home has a certain theme or style, you’ll want to go with the siding that complements your home best. Though most vinyl siding looks like standard horizontal clapboards, siding can also come in vertical panels, shingles, scallops and more.
