Savvy homeowners who are looking to increase the beauty and durability of their Minneapolis home's exterior don't need to look any further than siding. While you have probably seen -- and appreciated -- the good looks that siding brings to a home, there are likely other reasons that make it a logical choice that you might not be aware of. 


1. It comes in a variety of looks

Today's vinyl siding comes in looks that mimic the rustic appearance of wood shingles without posing the issues that are so often associated with that natural material. Vinyl shingles will not absorb water which means they will not rot. They are also resistant to infestations of insects that like to feed on wood fibers. 


2. It is insulating

Given the fact that the Minneapolis/St. Paul area has some of the harshest winters in the country, homeowners are extremely conscious about their efforts to conserve energy and money. Many types of vinyl siding are insulated, making your home more comfortable year round. An additional bonus is that these types of siding also help reduce the amount of outside noise that enters your home, helping to improve your family's quality of life. 


3. It resists impacts

The exterior of your home needs to be able to withstand unexpected impacts. Whether it is in the form of a down branch or hail from a violent storm, siding provides superior protection against damage from impacts. This helps keep the pristine look of the exterior of your home for a longer period of time. 


4. It protects against sun damage

You are probably already aware that vinyl siding comes in an array of different colors -- the exact number depends on the manufacturer. However, today's vinyl siding is also treated with UV inhibitors. These are designed to reduce the damaging effects of the sun in the form of fading. It helps keep the exterior of your home looking fresh and beautiful.
