Siding replacement is a major investment. After all, siding is designed not only to beautify the exterior of a home but also to protect it from the elements. For your siding investment to pay off, you want to choose siding that can last a long time. While the life span of your siding depends on a number of factors, including your region’s climate and how well the siding has been maintained, the material it’s made of plays a huge role in longevity. Among the most popular home siding materials here in the Midwest are wood, vinyl, and polymer. Let’s compare them to determine which offers value-conscious homeowners the best bang for their buck.
Wood siding can last anywhere from 15 to 30 years, but this lifespan comes at a cost, as wood requires heavy maintenance.
Highly resistant to moisture and temperature extremes, vinyl siding typically lasts between 20 and 40 years with proper maintenance. Not only can vinyl siding look like real wood, but it’s also much less expensive and easier to work with.
Made of durable polypropylene resin, a type of artificial polymer produced in a way similar to vinyl, polymer siding is more resistant to impact and the elements than both wood siding and vinyl siding. With proper maintenance, polymer siding can last as long as 50 years.
