5 Reasons Why Vinyl is the Most Popular Choice For siding contractors in New Jersey Homes

At Magnolia Home Remodeling, as a siding contractor for New Jersey homes, we often get asked which is the most popular type of siding option is. The answer is simple - insulated vinyl. 

1. The Popularity of Vinyl Siding for New Jersey Homes

When it comes to siding your home, there are several options available, including:

  • Insulated Vinyl
  • Wood
  • Aluminum
  • Steel
  • Brick
  • Stucco

However, vinyl siding makes up more than a third of new and older home siding installations. While this wasn't always the case, modern innovations in manufacturing and higher quality materials, have elevated vinyl's durability and style to make it the most popular siding option. 

2. Virtually Maintenance Free

One of the major reasons for vinyl's growing popularity is that it is basically maintenance free. Unlike wood, which needs to be repainted every five years or so, vinyl simply needs an occasional power wash with soapy water to remove dirt and grime that can accumulate over the years. Today's high-quality materials can withstand many climates, harsh weather, direct sun, and is resistant to moisture and rot. 

3. Insulated Vinyl can Improve Your Home's Energy Efficiency

With home heating and cooling costs on the rise, more homeowners are looking for ways to reduce energy waste and lower their power bills. The outer walls of a home, even when properly insulated, still allow a great deal of heat to move through the studs. When a siding contractor for New Jersey homes installs insulated vinyl, the added insulation can drastically reduce this energy transfer, effectively improving efficiency and lowering power bills.

4. Costs Less to Install Than Other Options

Adding new siding to your home is a big renovation, one that can be expensive. While new siding can help reduce costs over time, homeowners often avoid upgrading due to the installation costs. Vinyl siding, which costs 26% less than aluminum and about 11% less than cedar, helps more homeowners improve the look and feel of their home. Here at Magnolia Home Remodeling, we provide in house financing to qualified buyers, making new home siding an affordable option.

5. Vinyl Siding Comes in a Verity of Styles and Colors

One of the drawbacks of the vinyl siding of old was how flimsy and unattractive it was. Today, however, vinyl siding is available in a wide selection of colors and styles to choose from. Manufacturing techniques have created more realistic wood textures with a low gloss finish that mimics real wood.

In-house financing is available to qualified buyers purchasing vinyl siding in the New Jersey and surrounding areas. For more information on vinyl siding, or to speak with a siding contractor for New Jersey homes about your free consultation, please call Magnolia Home Remodeling today
