Vinyl vs. Wood Siding

dutchlapMaintenance – Wood siding, although durable, needs to be painted over. It does not need to be cleaned as much as vinyl siding. Vinyl siding never needs to be painted, and is virtually maintenance free. It needs to be cleaned once a year.

Price – Wood siding is much more expensive than vinyl siding. Although it may last longer, the price alone may scare you away. Vinyl, however, mocks the look and warmth of wood without going over your budget.

Quality – Wood looks great when first installed, but over the years it will flake or rot. When this happens, you may have to replace shingles which becomes very costly. Vinyl siding is constructed from PVC which will not rot, and remains durable and in shape for years.
