What Impacts How Long Vinyl Siding Lasts?

The longevity of your vinyl siding depends on several key factors. Knowing what these factors are can help you ensure you get the most out of your building material.


Vinyl siding from New Jersey Siding & Windows, Inc., is designed to protect your home. Because it’s exposed to the outdoor elements, over time, the climate can take its toll on any siding material. Temperature and weather conditions greatly impact the longevity of your vinyl siding.
