Do You Have Old Ugly Aluminum Siding? Replace It And Enjoy These Benefits

Posted on: 15 July 2015

If you have outdated aluminum siding on your home and you don't like the color or how it looks, replace the siding with a vinyl option. There are many benefits of having vinyl siding on the outside of your home, and getting rid of your aluminum is profitable.

Here are a few reasons why you want to consider replacing your aluminum siding with vinyl, and the benefits you'll experience with the vinyl.

Aluminum is Worth Money

Removing your aluminum siding and taking it to the scrap yard is a great way to get some cash you can use towards the purchase of your new siding. Removing the old siding on your own is simple, and you just need a truck or something to haul it to the scrap yard. The scrap yard weighs the siding panels, and then gives you money on the spot.

Insulated Vinyl Siding is Efficient

New siding with insulation is going to help reduce heating and cooling costs throughout the home, by trapping in the heat and air conditioned air throughout the year. This insulation and siding will also protect the house from drafts, and will help make the house quieter. If you want new insulation put between the exterior of the walls of the home, have it installed after removing the aluminum siding.

Vinyl is Easy to Maintain

Vinyl siding isn't going to need painted, just washed. The vinyl panels are created with a single fold, so the color goes all the way through the product, making it less easy to notice scratches. Wasps, bees, termites and other pests can't burrow into the siding and cause damage. You also don't have to worry about spots looking worn. The paint color isn't going to fade, and the siding will look new on the house for decades.

Updating the House Improves Value

Updating the home will enhance the curb appeal, and replacing the siding will help protect the structure. This will improve the property value and the resale potential for the house.

The siding installation contractors can also wrap the house with a vinyl liner to protect against moisture and pests while the aluminum siding is removed, before the new vinyl siding is installed. There are a variety of colors and textures you can get, and there is siding that looks like wood planking. If your old aluminum siding looks dingy and is wearing, replace it with vinyl quickly and enjoy the benefits. For more information, contact Superior Products.
