In this manner, are vinyl houses good?
Like any plastic product, a good quality vinyl siding can be everlasting to the point of indestructible. Vinyl siding comes in many colors, but you can also paint it to your liking. Like vinyl windows, vinyl siding is inappropriate for historic preservation and can cause irreversible damage to brick and stone.
how long does vinyl siding last? 20-40 years
Also question is, is vinyl siding bad for your health?
Your vinyl siding is generally safe, as long as you don't spend time licking it or touching it. You can get lead in your body if you drink liquid that contains lead, such as water that has passed through lead pipes. So far, the most studied danger of vinyl siding comes when it is burned, as in a house fire.
How strong is vinyl siding?
Vinyl siding is constructed out of a PVC plastic resin, which makes it remarkably strong. Unlike metal or aluminum, it won't rust, conduct electricity, or dent: even if a baseball hits it, the plastic simply bounces back. And unlike wood, it won't warp, rot, or chip.
