What is the Durability of Vinyl Siding?

Sep. 25, 2020

As a Vinyl Siding Supplier, share with you. The beauty of vinyl siding is more than skin-deep. It can boost a home’s curb appeal, last 50 years or more with little maintenance, and protect a house from costly damage caused by moisture and insects.

Vinyl is also one of the most affordable siding choices, which may be why it’s the most popular.

Like the aluminum siding it has overtaken in popularity, vinyl will never be mistaken for wood upon close inspection. But manufacturers are increasingly creating new textured and overlapping styles to create a more woodlike appearance.

Careful homeowners who do their homework before choosing exterior siding for their new or renovated house will already be aware of vinyl siding. Installing vinyl siding is enticing—especially the prospect of never having to paint your home. Low maintenance is a tempting argument for the busy parent or hard-working family and can sound like a dream. Unlike pine board or cedar, this durable material will not rot or flake. Vinyl is available in several dozen colors and can mimic architectural details that were once made from wood. With these advantages, it is no wonder that vinyl has become one of the most popular siding materials in the United States and is quickly gaining momentum around the world.



It is often said that vinyl siding is permanent. It is true that vinyl will last a very long time. Titanium dioxide is often added to the chemical mixture to block UV rays, which deteriorated older vinyl siding. Consumers can purchase different grades of vinyl, both recycled and what is called "virgin," and different thicknesses are available. Like any plastic product, a good quality vinyl siding can be everlasting to the point of indestructible, but only as long as it is well-maintained.


Vinyl siding's hanging also affects its durability—because it expands, it must be hung loosely. But if it's too loose, wind can get underneath the thin sheets of vinyl siding and lift a panel from the wall. Windblown debris and strong hail can puncture vinyl. New developments have made vinyl stronger and less brittle, but the plastic sheets will still crack or break if struck or pulled at by a lawnmower or snowblower. While vinyl siding overall tends to be cheaper than other types of siding, the multitude of options and choices offered today can make vinyl siding more expensive. So it's not always the lowest-cost an alternative to exterior siding.
