Vinyl has long had a bad rap as “fake leather”, also known as “pleather.” But when it comes to exterior home siding in Colorado, vinyl siding has proven itself second to none. (Can you imagine leather siding on a home? Perhaps it could be attached with silver studs! It would look cool; in fact it would look like a cross between a Native American tee-pee and 80’s style rock-n-roll, but we don’t think it would be very durable or have much in the way of insulating properties. So move over leather – vinyl’s come into its own!)
Vinyl Siding for Colorado Homes
Okay, obviously we’re joking here. The modern, high tech vinyl siding we’re referring to has nothing to do with the stuff that covered the seats of your grandma’s kitchen chairs from the 50’s.
One of the main purposes of siding is to protect your home from the elements. With the frequently extreme climate here in Colorado, vinyl siding is a great choice. It’s economical, durable, and is applied with an attached layer of insulation underneath that’s guaranteed to keep you toastier in the winter, with energy savings to boot.
Not just popular here in Colorado, vinyl siding is the most commonly applied exterior cladding in the entire U.S. and Canada, and with good reason. Low maintenance and long lasting, as well as good looking, insulating and affordable — can leather claim any of that? Can wood siding claim that either, for that matter? Vinyl siding never dries out, splits or rots! Termites won’t touch it; Denver’s well known hail storms don’t dent it. And unlike wood, the color is integrated all the way through the siding panel, so your days of painting the house are happily over.
