Siding plays a big role not only in your home’s curb appeal and protection but also in its energy efficiency, which is why siding is so important! Both vinyl and insulated vinyl siding are great choices, so knowing the benefits of each will help you decide.
Jayson Global Roofing in Edmonton offers professional roofing, siding, masonry, and solar installation. They share the differences and benefits between vinyl and insulated siding:
Unlike other siding options, vinyl is one of the most affordable choices, which also makes it one of the most popular. As a bonus, it’s very low-maintenance, so there aren’t any future expenses from any upkeep. The vinyl itself is also one of the most durable materials for siding, especially against extreme conditions. High temperatures, snow, hail, wind or heat won’t cause any damage to your vinyl siding. Plus, it’s resistant to rust, corrosion, and any pests.
Design-wise, vinyl comes in a seemingly endless range of choices and styles. If you like the look of shingles, shakes or scallops, vinyl can easily mimic the look. It comes in a wide selection of colours or can imitate the look of wood and stone siding. Whichever way you customize it, vinyl siding will do a lot to boost your home’s curb appeal.
Insulated siding takes standard vinyl siding but adds a rigid foam insulation backing to it. The added layer of foam is what provides the siding with new benefits, such as a higher R-value. Like vinyl siding, insulated siding is just as durable, low-maintenance and long-lasting. However, where impacts can damage vinyl siding, the insulated foam helps prevent that. The biggest benefit of insulated siding, though, is the energy savings it provides. Choosing it will save more on cooling and heating expenses throughout the year, which saves more in the long-run. According to Remodel Magazine’s cost vs value report, a siding replacement will recoup as much as 75.6% of the cost. Coupled with this energy-efficient siding, you’ll not only save on the siding expense but also future energy bills.
Which is better for me?
Both insulated and vinyl siding are great options for your home, and both provide their own benefits. Still, when it comes to choosing between the two, there are a few factors to consider. If you are planning to sell your home or are on a strict budget, then vinyl siding is the best choice. Thanks to its high recoup, you’ll boost both your home’s value and curb appeal while also attracting potential buyers. Otherwise, if you plan to stay in your home for some time and want better energy-efficiency, choose insulated. With the long-term benefits of insulated siding, it’s a better choice over the long run. Plus, it’ll still benefit you if you ever do choose to sell. Potential buyers love energy-efficient homes, so it’s an investment you can’t go wrong with.
