Building A Home And Can'T Decide Between Brick And Vinyl Siding? Why Vinyl Siding Would Be The Best Choice

Construction & Contractors Blog

If you are building a home, there are many things you have to consider. One of these things is choosing between brick or vinyl siding. While brick is advantageous as it last longer than you will, vinyl siding also offers many benefits. Below are three of these benefits so you can decide if you would like vinyl siding better than brick.

More Affordable

Vinyl siding is much more affordable when compared to brick. For example, brick can range from $6 to $12 per square foot per square foot, while vinyl siding ranges from $2 to $4 per square foot.

The total cost does depend on how large your home is and the type of brick that you choose, however. For example, brick siding will be less expensive but still much more than vinyl siding.

Vinyl siding is also less expensive because it takes less time to install resulting in low labor costs.

Easy Maintenance

Once you install vinyl siding maintenance is very easy. The only thing you have to do is to periodically hose the vinyl siding down with a hose. If it does get dirty, you can use a mild soap along with a scrub brush that has a long handle to clean the siding. When finished, make sure you use a garden hose to thoroughly rinse off the vinyl siding.

If you have a two story home you should consider hiring a professional to clean the vinyl siding for you. This will ensure that you do not get hurt climbing high on a ladder.

More Choices Available

When it comes to brick you can choose between only a few brick colors. With vinyl siding, the color choices are almost endless. This way you can choose a color that goes well with your home, your landscaping, the surrounding area, and more.

When you choose the color that you want the manufacturer mixes the dye in with white to create the correct color shade. If you get tired of the color you chose in the future, it is easy to paint vinyl siding a different color. This can make your entire home look completely different if you choose a completely different color, such as yellow to red.

Talk with a vinyl siding contractor, such as at Allstate Gutter & Siding, about these benefits to learn much more about them. The contractor can also give you much more information about vinyl siding to help you make your choice.
