Vinyl Siding in Spring

Vinyl siding is one of the best new materials to cover your house in, and there are so many reasons why this is true. Vinyl is a material that does not need to be painted, meaning that there is little maintenance to keeping your home looking as great as the first day you got this siding installed. Similarly, this material is perfect in almost all types of weather climates, meaning that whether you are living in New England or New Mexico, you will be able to revel in the benefits that are bestowed upon vinyl siding.

What Makes the Spring Different?

Did you know that springtime is one of the best times to install your vinyl siding? This is because it’s not too hot and not too cold. During the summertime, it can be so excruciatingly hot, and humid, especially in Massachusetts, and in New England in general. The heat can cause the vinyl to expand slightly. While this is probably more prevalent in the southwest of the United States, it is technically possible that it can happen here as well.

On the other hand, cold weather does the exact opposite. The vinyl material can contract slightly, making the measurements a bit off where they would be during a milder season.

Different Tendencies in the Spring

In the springtime, many people change up what they do. Typically, more time is spent outside, and since there is no snow, lawn work is always a must. Some of the things that may be beneficial to look out for are as follows:

  • Lawnmowers: Lawnmowers can cause problems only if you knock directly into the vinyl or a larger rock flies into the vinyl. This could cause a crack in the material.
  • Soccer Balls: Like above, soccer balls shot rather hard can cause more cracking to your vinyl. One of the things you can do is make sure that your backyard soccer net is not directly on the side of your home.
  • Grills: Grills can get very hot, and this could potentially cause a few problems with your siding, so similarly to directly above, making sure it’s not directly against your wall will be very beneficial.

Can Vinyl Siding Stand Up To Freezing Temperatures?

If you are living in the New England area, you should truly take a look at switching over to vinyl siding. It’s the perfect material, because yes, it can stand up to freezing temperatures, but that is not the only reason why.

From its durability to its weatherability, it is the perfect material to keep you comfortable and feeling safe all throughout the wintertime. What are some other reasons why vinyl siding is quintessential siding material for us New Englanders?


As the principal element of vinyl siding, efficiency is crucial to the longevity of the investment you will be making. Everybody wants a long-term return when they make an investment such as this, and they will get it in terms of efficiency.

Vinyl siding keeps all the warm air and heating inside of the house while letting barely any out. What this does is decreases the amount of energy that you need to keep yourself snug in the winter, meaning your heating will turn on less often and do you know what that means?

It means fewer costs for you each month in the wintertime. Over a few years, you can see that this investment almost ends up paying for itself, and even if you decide to look into selling your house, you will realize that the vinyl siding also increases your home value significantly.


Being essentially maintenance free, vinyl siding is great because you do not have to spend any excess money or time on cleaning it. By standing up to rain, wind, and severe temperatures, vinyl siding has become the premier for siding material.

This material helps to protect the exterior of your home and can also ultimately save you money on the exuberant costs related to fixing rot, mold, and wind damage, such as twisting and blown off material.


Partnering with insulation, vinyl siding can help create a soundproof home. This means that you will not have to deal with the sounds of traffic outside, as well as the sounds of storms, leaving you more relaxed than ever before.

How Long Does Vinyl Siding Last?

What is Vinyl Siding?

Vinyl siding has been at the forefront of home siding for the past few decades. Created in the 1950’s to compete with aluminum siding, it originally did not have too many benefits, but over the course of about 10 years, this siding developed extremely fast into what we know it as today. Now, it is one of the most frequently used siding options in the United States. It is used so frequently that about 1/3 of homes use it. Being available in many colors, as well as having a high durability really puts vinyl out on top, in regard to home siding preferences.

What are the Benefits?

Vinyl siding offers many benefits, including the following:

  • Little Maintenance: since vinyl is so durable and weather resistant, there is little to no maintenance, except maybe to clean off some manmade stains or remove debris/dirt from snow during the winter.
  • Weather Resistance: Snow, rain, and sleet are no match for vinyl siding.
  • Inexpensive: Compared to many other options, this material is quite inexpensive, and truly is the best bang for your buck.

How Long does it Last?

As one of the most long-lasting materials on the market, vinyl siding can last about 60 years, with absolutely no interference. This means that if you have this siding, and do nothing to clean it or maintain it, it will last upwards of 60 years. On the other hand, if you do clean it every once in a while, and make sure there is no growth, vinyl siding can last 100 years or more.
