Benefits of Vinyl Siding: It’s More Than Just an Exterior Upgrade!

If you’re considering upgrading your home’s exterior with vinyl siding, you may wonder if there is more to it. As it turns out, vinyl siding has plenty of upfront and fringe benefits.

Premier Home Exterior believes education is critical to making an informed decision about investing in our services. As one of Westerville, Ohio’s leading exterior remodeling companies, we feel it’s part of our customer service efforts to help you understand. That said, let’s get into it.

Pros and Cons of Vinyl Siding

Investing in vinyl siding means a near-total overhaul of your home’s exterior, so it’s best to know what you’re getting into before you make the decision. After all, you deserve to know more than just the benefits of vinyl siding.


To start, vinyl siding is a relatively inexpensive way to make a significant difference in your home’s style. You can go from a plain white exterior to a dramatic color like dark red, green, or even gray with new vinyl. Vinyl is also a low-maintenance material, meaning you’ll only ever have to take a garden hose or pressure washer to it for cleaning.


Vinyl, unfortunately, does come with some negatives. Vinyl siding can boost a home’s value, but not as much as traditional wood siding. Vinyl installation from a less-than-reputable company can also cause issues with moisture buildup under the surface. Vinyl cannot be painted, meaning you’re locked into one color choice for decades.

Types of Vinyl Siding

Like ice cream, vinyl siding comes in several different flavors. Just don’t try eating a panel. Depending on which company manufactures your vinyl – Premier uses ProVia for our vinyl siding, for example – you’ll have plenty of options to choose from, such as:

  • Clapboard
  • Dutch Lap
  • Wood Grain
  • Smooth
  • Board and Batten
  • Cedar Shake
  • Log Vinyl
  • Shake
  • Beaded Seam
  • And more!

With the many types of vinyl siding, you have a tremendous opportunity as a homeowner to elevate your home’s charm and character. If you’re shopping for vinyl, take this as a chance to go outside your comfort zone to choose something unique and out of the box.

How Long Does Vinyl Siding Last?

As an investment, you want your vinyl siding to last as long as possible. If you choose a company that partners with a reputable brand, there’s no way your vinyl siding can’t last for decades. However, on average, vinyl siding can last up to 30-40 years. Of course, that time depends on various factors like the climate, how often the vinyl is cleaned, and other routine maintenance.

Is Vinyl Siding Worth the Cost?

Without question, vinyl siding is worth any investment to upgrade your home’s exterior. As a siding material, vinyl is one of the least expensive ways to refresh your home’s style. If you work with a company like Premier Home Exterior, you’ll also receive a surgical-style approach to installation. That level of detail will protect your home from any hazard and could lower your energy costs over time.

“Premier replaced 5 windows and all the siding on our house! They did a great job and I would recommend them to anyone.”

Mary B.

“Premier Home Exterior was our choice for 31 new windows. The quality of the product is 5 stars, the price is reasonable and the company is trustworthy! Our home has a brand new fresh look. We are also looking forward to lower heating and air conditioning bills. The installation was completed in 2 days. The clean-up included the removal of all the old windows and screens with no extra charges. From the knock on the door to the clean up, we felt comfortable with our choice. We recommend Premier Home Exterior.”

Karen A.

“WE LOVE OUR WINDOWS! My wife and I have been wanting to get windows for 6 years. We took our time on determining which company was best and we chose Premier out of 5 options. They NEVER pressured us to buy. Prices were up front. Matt and our installers (Billy, Grant, and Wyatt) were extremely professional and flexible. We even had a garden window put in after one company told us "you need an inheritance for that." I will recommend Premier to everyone and will definitely use them in the future.”
