How long does vinyl siding last on a house?
Vinyl siding can last over 40 years if maintained well. It may be damaged and need to be replaced sooner than that depending on a few factors such as heavy weather, too much sunlight, high pest activity, and poor installation. You can prolong how long it lasts by adding a layer of paint for protection from sunlight, weather, and bugs, making sure that it is properly installed, and maintaining the walls and areas surrounding it. Vinyl siding also comes with some type of warranty that ranges from a few years to a lifetime, which ensures that the siding will stay intact and keep its color if a new color has not been added after the manufacturing process.
