When it comes to replacing their current siding with vinyl siding, most homeowners focus on the visual benefits it offers. However, enhancing the overall aesthetics of your property is not the only advantage of vinyl siding installation. Some may be surprised to learn that vinyl siding available from New Jersey Siding & Windows, Inc., can help clients save money by reducing energy bills. We have served northern New Jersey homeowners for more than 2 years. Here, we discuss the properties of insulated vinyl siding and how they impact your energy spending.

What Is Vinyl Siding?

Vinyl siding is made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) resin that’s weatherproof and often imitates the look of wood siding. It has been around since the 1950s but has come a long way since then. Today, nearly one-third of all homes in the United States are sided with some form of vinyl siding product—either horizontal lap siding planks or shake/shingle products.

Vinyl siding provides homeowners with an authentic look without the hassle and demanding upkeep of real wood. Vinyl siding is available in a variety of styles, textures, and colors, allowing homeowners to select an option that matches their aesthetic tastes.

Potential Savings on Energy

Insulated vinyl siding acts as a protective barrier for homes. Its fortified construction and makeup help trap warm air during wintertime and keeps cool air from escaping the home during the summer. The result is significantly reducing the amount of energy it takes to keep your home at a comfortable level, which ultimately can have a big impact on your home’s energy bills.

Even well-insulated homes have weak points and heat loss can occur in several ways. For example, the air inside your home can escape through the contact points where wall studs meet the exterior siding. Vinyl siding accounts for this by acting as a protective blanket over the wall studs.

Other Advantages of Vinyl Siding

The reason vinyl siding is one of the most used building materials is because of the various benefits it provides. Other reasons so many builders and homeowners opt for vinyl siding include:


Designed to last anywhere from 20 to 40 years, vinyl siding is constructed with lightweight, durable materials, allowing it to effortlessly protect your home from inclement weather. Vinyl is insect-proof, weather-resistant, and rust and rot-resistant.

Low Maintenance

Due to its slick surface, most debris and dirt wash right off vinyl siding with a simple clean. With very minimal maintenance needed, homeowners can spend more time admiring their siding rather than working to maintain its condition.

Easy to Install

Vinyl siding is much easier to install when compared to other exterior siding options. This is important for homeowners because it may reduce labor costs.
