Vinyl Siding

In recent years, vinyl has become the siding market leader. It's made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC), the same stuff that serves so ably in plumbing drain lines. Certainly its primary appeal is that it doesn't have to be painted. If properly installed, the upkeep is minimal. But, its popularity continues to grow because of new product offerings and features such as wood-like textures, shingle- and shake-style panels, more appealing trim components and deeper colors. According to the Vinyl Siding Institute, shipments have more than tripled since 1986.
Vinyl's biggest selling point remains its low maintenance. It usually can be washed clean with a garden hose. Material and installation costs are relatively low too.

Premium vinyl siding runs between $1.50 and $2 per square foot. And the material can be installed by a seasoned do-it-yourselfer, though the results are often better when a pro does the job.
