Most builders these days provide vinyl siding for houses. Seldom will you come across houses with a three-inch thick siding these days. The type of siding provided depends largely on the budget.
Vinyl sidings are made up of polyvinyl chloride, commonly known as PVC, and various styles, colors, and types are available in them. They are made to look like stones and bricks, or resemble clapboards, battens, and logs. There are also varieties designed to look like wooden lap siding. Let us look at each one of them in detail.

It is famous for its heat reflecting capacity, thereby saving on energy bills. It is maintenance free, and its longevity is much more than regular paint. It protects the exterior of the house from extreme temperatures. It is also eco-friendly, and unlike other types, it does not emit any harmful chemicals.
