ABOUT VINYL SIDING
Vinyl siding is a popular alternative to wood siding. Although it does not have the authentic look and feel of natural wood siding, vinyl siding has great advantages in terms of maintenance. Unlike wood siding, vinyl siding does not need painting, and is not subject to shrinkage, splitting, and rotting.
Siding made from vinyl is available as board-like planks. It is also available as panels, which may be two, three, or four boards wide. This speeds up installation, and provides fewer joints. Most manufacturers supply siding in at least ten colors, ranging from white, through buff, to mid and dark browns. Most siding has a wood grain texture, to simulate the appearance of natural wood.
A variety of profiles is available, including overlapping clapboard, and board & batten.
