Will Vinyl Siding Improve The Value of my Home?

Improving the look of your home’s exterior by installing new vinyl siding is easy to see. It’s the instant makeover for an immediate improvement in curb appeal! However, there is more than what meets the eye when it comes to new vinyl siding---it actually improves the value of your home!  

Whether you plan to sell your home or you’re staying put, this is how vinyl siding can help improve its value.


1. Increased Energy Savings

Vinyl siding is primarily known for its aesthetics, so homeowners may forget that it also helps by lowering energy bills. Using insulated panels specifically designed for energy savings is the ticket to a beautiful exterior and a comfortable interior 

According to Consumer Reports, boosting your home’s energy efficiency can improve home value by up to 3%. You can even see energy savings around 5% with this upgrade---a double whammy! 

2. Stress-Free Living

Most homeowners don’t find it thrilling to maintain vinyl siding over the years. But the fact is that wood siding is time-consuming and expensive to maintain. The national average is almost $3,000 to paint wood siding!  

When you have vinyl siding, this takes away almost all of the stress of maintenance. There is certainly no painting or staining involved, and it’s for sure much cheaper to maintain. All you’ll need to do is get your hands on a long-handled bristle-brush and a bucket of water mixed with vinegar.

3. Eye-Popping Aesthetics

This is what vinyl siding is known for---its beauty! Vinyl siding truly captures the look of real wood siding and striking attention to detail. It also comes in a wide selection of exterior colors, with the panels covered with quality exterior paint! With the factory paint process, you’ll know that your new vinyl siding will look beautiful for decades. 

With this major increase in curb appeal, a boost in home value is sure to follow. According to House Logic, homes with well-maintained curb appeal can demand a higher selling price and they even sell faster. Along with new vinyl siding replacement, you can invest in new landscaping and even an entry door for the ultimate curb appeal makeover!
