We personally prefer the look of brick or stucco finishing to the budget option of vinyl, but sometimes that is all you can afford. Stucco or brick just look so much more elegant and exclusive when you drive into a neighborhood. When you see homes that are covered in vinyl, you know that the area is more affordable and there is nothing wrong with that. However, in a perfect world, there would be less vinyl and more stucco.

The biggest advantage of vinyl is it’s cost, and part of that cost is the installation. If you decide to hire someone to do the installation for you, it will be much cheaper than hiring a contractor to apply stucco. You will save even more money if you decide to tackle the job of installing your vinyl siding on your own.

Most people are intimidated by big jobs that they have never done before, but if you really think about it, installing vinyl siding is not rocket science and almost anyone can do it. You just need someone to show you how to do it. This is where YouTube comes in to play. I have done almost all the repairs on my houseĀ over the years, mostly because I am too cheap to hire someone to do something that I know I can do myself.

If you are thinking that you don’t have the tools and equipment to do a big job like this, just go to your local Home Depot and rent whatever you need. The most important thing you will need is scaffolding. If Home Depot does not have that to rent, there has to be a rental company in your city that does have it. Once you get the scaffolding, a hammer, drill, hardware, cutters, level, and measuring tape, you are ready to start the job.
