Replacing your existing home exterior with vinyl siding can improve the look of your home and save you money. Energy-efficient vinyl siding prevents cool air from escaping in the summer and holds in heat in the winter. This durable, beautiful material lasts for decades and is a valuable structural feature if you decide to resell your home. However, it’s essential to team up with professional contractors to ensure proper installation. At ACE Construction & Remodeling, our siding specialists pay close attention to detail to ensure great results.
How Much Money Can You Save with More Efficient Siding?
Vinyl siding can help you save money on your energy bills. It provides insulation and prevents air leaks, potentially reducing your heating and cooling costs by 20%. The amount of money you save depends on several factors, including the following:
- The type and quality of the siding material: Vinyl siding is more energy-efficient and low-maintenance than wood siding, for example.
- The amount of insulation in your walls: If you have poor or insufficient insulation, you may lose more heat in the winter and gain more heat in the summer, which can increase your energy bills. Vinyl siding can help you improve the insulation of your entire home.
- The size and shape of your home: Larger homes may have more heat loss or gain than smaller ones, resulting in lower energy efficiency.

Low-Cost, Low-Maintenance Siding
Vinyl siding is affordable and easy to install. It also comes with low maintenance requirements. Don’t worry about painting, staining, or sealing it, as the colors and finishes are slow to fade. If you have a power washer, you can clean it annually or as needed.
Color and Climate
Many homeowners in Indiana worry about the cost of heating during the state’s brutal winters. Different colors reflect or absorb solar radiation more or less efficiently. Lighter colors are more reflective and cooler. Choose a color that matches your heating or cooling needs. To retain more warmth, select a darker siding color.
Mix and Match Materials
One way to boost your curb appeal with vinyl siding is to mix and match different materials and textures. For example, you can use vinyl siding in combination with stone, brick, or wood to create contrast. Select from lap, shake, board and batten, or vertical siding to add a creative element.
Add Decorative Trim for Extra Verve
You can use trim, shutters, molding, or columns to highlight your windows, doors, and eaves. Lighting fixtures and planters add charm and character. These decorative details create focal points for your home’s exterior.
