Vinyl siding is a type of plastic exterior siding that is made for houses and small apartment buildings. The two main purposes of having vinyl siding are decoration and weatherproofing. However, vinyl siding is also commonly used for replicating wood clapboard, shakes, and acts as a replacement for aluminum or fiber cement siding.
The vinyl siding cost is affordable compared to other building materials as it is an engineered product that is manufactured mostly from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) resin. 80 percent of the weight of this type of siding consists of PVC resin.
The remaining percentage includes ingredients used for color, opacity, gloss, impact resistance, flexibility, and durability. Given all of these qualities, vinyl siding is the most common type of exterior cladding for residential buildings in the United States and even in Canada.
