Siding is one of the most important aspects of your home. Not only does it make your home look great, it also protects the framework to your property! Many homeowners wonder, “What kind of siding should I get?”

There are many different types of siding including vinyl, aluminum, wood, stucco, cement, etc. However, in this article, we are going to look at the most popular question we get:

 “Should I get vinyl siding or aluminum siding?”

As professional residential contractors with over 15+ years’ experience, we can say with certainty that we highly recommend vinyl siding for a number of reasons.

Here are 10 benefits of vinyl siding vs. aluminum siding:

Benefits of Vinyl Siding

  • Durable: Vinyl siding offers long lasting, durable exterior building coverage.
  • Long lasting: It won’t chip, flake or scratch.
  • Energy Efficient: Vinyl siding is energy efficient and provides great insulation year round.
  • Affordable: Vinyl siding is very affordable. Get the look you want without the high cost and maintenance.
  • Great ROI: Vinyl siding offers significant return on investment.
  • Variety: Choose from a variety of custom colors, finishes and styles.
  • Aesthetics: Improve the look and value of your home.
  • Low Maintenance: Vinyl siding requires low maintenance and is easy to care for. You want a material that’ll require the least amount of work so you don’t have to worry about spending money on repairs or touch-ups..
  • Strong: Aluminum siding is very prone to denting and scratching.
  • Weather Resistant: Strong enough for Upstate NY winters. Vinyl is a strong siding material that can withstand the toughest weather conditions. Not only do you want siding that’ll look great for many years, but one that will also keep your home insulated year round too.
