Does new vinyl siding really give you 88-93% ROI?

I certainly hope so.

Today is the last stage of a home improvement on our house. We have new siding, new sliding class doors, added a window where an air conditioner used to be and new gutters. Being in this business, I have read so many articles about how these types of improvements positively affect the resale value of your home that I almost have the statistics memorized. We selected an uncommon style of siding (dutch lap siding) for our area and it looks different than others in our neighborhood making our home unique (for now).

The best reasons for making improvements to your home are still; the house looks great, is more energy efficient, a pleasure to live in and easy to maintain. The improvements cost twice the price of my first car so the ROI will be nice if and when we sell. With 1 child starting her sophomore year in college and 1 starting his senior year in high school, we won't be going anywhere for a while.

I agree Shane. I have only been able to get statistics regionally. Any improvements are relative to the "before" state and the rest of the homes in the area.

Just read your comments.

This question really need a lot more info but in a general sense the answer is no unless the paint is peeling off the house or the siding is in poor condition.

New vinyl siding maybe the cost of a good paint job in some areas though.

If you really want to increase the value with Vinyl Siding. Do not nail it. Most installers do not nail the siding into the framing members per the V.S.I. installation instructions as well as they nail too tight or too loose. This is what causes vinyl siding to loosen and blow-off and become wavy. The other thing about vinyl as well as all types of siding they all leak and can cause mold, rot and decay behind the siding and most people will never know it until it is too late. Check out some of the links below to see the new technology that emerged to solve these hugh problems.

Its is a great for you and i like your this post, Be careful when choosing siding. Many inexpensive brands do not offer enough pure vinyl to prevent cracking or missing key elements needed to prevent discoloration. Vinyl siding offers a high quality system of higher substrate and is resistant to chipping, cracking, curl, fade, and strong winds. And you can take your brush when facing quality starts dull just clean it with a little soap and water to restore to the new.
