Vinyl Siding is a low maintenance siding option. It’s incredibly weather resistant, and withstands the elements better than basically any other option there is. If you live in an area with a lot of snow, rain, and other forms of precipitation all year long, vinyl siding may be a good option for you! Here are a few key features of vinyl siding:
