Many homeowners are choosing vinyl for their siding due to its wide selection of designs, styles and texture. Also, it improves your home’s energy efficiency, giving you savings on heating and cooling costs.
Here are some reasons why you should choose vinyl cedar shake siding over real cedar siding.
Vinyl resists humidity and strong winds better than wood. You won’t have to worry about its color fading over time, and it doesn’t need to be cleaned as much. This siding material works well in traditional and contemporary homes.
Vinyl shake siding is designed to achieve the look of a real cedar shake siding. It’s more cost-effective than using real wood as it’s low maintenance, doesn’t rot and is insect resistant. For high-quality, energy-efficient products, contact your roofing and siding experts at Roof Masters.
Why Choose Vinyl Shake Siding?
Unlike real cedar, vinyl will not chip or dent. It’s easier and faster to install. Since it’s installed in segments, if one piece needs replacing, the segment can be removed and replaced. In addition, there aren’t added expenses, such as primer, sealant or paint. With vinyl, you can be at peace knowing your exterior won’t rot, peel, warp and fade.
While it’s naturally beautiful, cedar attracts woodpeckers. It requires more maintenance compared to other wood species. After the initial installation, the wood has to be restained or repainted twice a year to maintain its appearance.
