MovingThe Benefits of Choosing Vinyl Siding Instead of Bricks

September 26, 2018by was73100

If looking to revamp the exterior of your home, have you considered vinyl siding? There are pros and cons to both bricks and siding, and the decision ultimately comes down to personal preferences. Yet, there are several reasons why vinyl siding has become the number one choice among remodelers, builders, and contractors throughout the United States and Canada.

Affordability

Have you been to a hardware store and actually priced bricks? Working through a contractor might get you a discount. But even at around half a dollar apiece, you’re looking at a huge investment. Alternatively, reinforced vinyl is a much more cost-effective material when covering large exterior spaces. Even the installation of this covering is less time consuming and more affordable with lower labor costs. These are all short-term benefits, but there are also long-term benefits.

If you’re not satisfied with the color or just want to try a new look, you can paint it to create a new aesthetic. You can also screw shutters or other exterior accessories into plastic much easier and much more efficiently than in stone.

It’s Better for the Environment

The production of bricks releases a shocking amount of energy and air pollutants. When considering total energy, air pollutants, and global warming potential, vinyl is the superior material candidate. Some studies have concluded that brick’s impact on the environment is three times greater than that of vinyl.

While bricks still have their pros, siding offers unsurpassed versatility with a smaller price tag. At the end of the day, the decision comes down to personal preferences. The many pros of siding, however,…
