Lowes Vinyl Siding vs. PJ Fitzpatrick

Lowes Vinyl Siding

Over the past several decades, vinyl siding has become a very popular type of siding among homeowners. In 2013, around 73 million squares of siding (a square covers 100-square feet) were installed by and the amount is expected to increase over the next few years.

History/Materials

Lowes Vinyl Siding

As opposed to wood or aluminum, vinyl siding is made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) resin, a material that was first made back in the late 1800s. Though PVC was used in the 1940s as piping for water supply systems, it wasn’t made into siding until the early 1960s. When it was introduced as siding, it was originally sold as a siding for remodeling, but has grown in popularity for new home construction.

Why Homeowners Love It

Before the 1960s, aluminum was a popular siding material for homes. It offered heat protection and durability, but the paint on aluminum would often chalk and fade, so homeowners would have to repaint it every five years or so. Vinyl siding, however, is colored during the manufacturing process, so it doesn’t need painted. This was an appealing quality, and became one reason homeowners love vinyl.

Another reason homeowners love vinyl siding is because of the cost. Vinyl siding is considered an affordable option for nearly any home, whether it’s during the build or during a remodel. While the price can vary based on the quality of the siding, the installation cost is much lower than other siding materials.

Vinyl siding is also insulating, which can help you reduce your energy costs. In addition, it’s very resilient and will resist rotting, warping, and cracking, making it very low-maintenance.
