Is Vinyl Siding Right for Your Home?

Vinyl siding has come a long way over the years. This versatile building material, which has largely replaced aluminum siding as a material of choice, is long lasting and never needs to be painted. In this article from This Old House Magazine, author Mark Feirer presents a detailed look at aluminum siding including its advantages, disadvantages, and what to look for in a vinyl siding product. He arms his readers with enough information to make an informed decision about whether or not to use vinyl siding to spruce up their homes.

Feirer is also quick to point out that “every quality vinyl siding job starts with the contractor. Don’t hesitate to ask potential installers for their certifications — most of the large manufacturers certify installers in proper installation techniques — and for the names of satisfied customers. Also check complaint lists established with local and state business associations, as well as with state contractor licensing boards.”
