The overall appearance of your home's exterior depends on a number of key choices, including roofing material and color, color scheme, windows and doors, and siding. When choosing siding for a new project or renovation, many homeowners opt for vinyl siding. In fact, reports show that more than 30% of new homes feature vinyl siding, with the number constantly increasing.
But where does the appeal lie? Your first thought when you picture vinyl may not be a positive one. However, this modern material stands superior to many options on the market and meets the needs of thousands of American homeowners.
In this blog, we list 10 of the fundamental advantages of vinyl siding.
1. Affordable and Cost-Effective
Compared to other popular siding choices, especially cedar shakes and other wood varieties, vinyl siding costs less initially. Cedar shakes can cost more than two-and-a-half times more to purchase and install than vinyl.

Below, we've listed the benefits of metal roofing so you can install a roof that provides you with the most advantages.
One of the best benefits of choosing a metal roof is its aesthetic appeal. Metal roofs can be made from different types of metal, so you can select a material that best suits your budget and personal taste. From copper and aluminum to tin and galvanized steel, you can install a metal roof that seamlessly matches your home's architecture.
As you improve your home's exterior with a new metal roof, you can add to your neighborhood's aesthetic and charm as well.
Traditional asphalt roofs tend to last between 20 and 40 years. Depending on the materials used, a metal roof has a life expectancy of 40 to 70 years often twice that of asphalt! Since metal roofs are extremely durable, you won't have to replace the entire roof as often.
However, just like your car, metal roofs can dent if large hail stones fall on them. If the roof becomes dented in some areas

In the spirit of Cyber Monday, take a look at what it would cost for USPS to ship one bundle of roofing shingles locally. Would you believe $161 per bundle? Considering the average sized house is roughly 90 bundles it would cost over $14,000 in shipping. ABR delivers roofing materials for a $1.00 per bundle and puts it on the rooftop.
