No other cladding choice combines the aesthetic versatility, low-maintenance, performance and environmentally friendly attributes that vinyl siding delivers. Look around. You'll soon discover why America sides with vinyl at a rate nearly double that of any other exterior cladding material.
New trim and accent options, more styles and finishes, and a full spectrum of colors help architects, builders and homeowners achieve their ideal exterior style for any type of home in any neighborhood. Any look from historic to contemporary is possible with vinyl siding.
While traditional pastel and earthy color options are still available, today's vinyl siding offers a comprehensive array of darker color combinations including bold, rich tones like deep red, dark green, deep blues and more. And, all colors feature unsurpassed color retention.
Today's vinyl siding is more than great looking, it's a great value. It offers the lowest total installed cost, as well as the lowest life cycle cost over the life of a home. Its no-painting, low-maintenance features keep appreciating for years and years.
It is a fact: Homeowners who re-side their homes with vinyl siding typically recover nearly 81% of the cost when selling their homes.*

With the ability to withstand high winds and a composition that resists heat, cold and moisture, vinyl siding retains its great looks over time.
Vinyl siding never needs paint. Ever. The only maintenance it will need is a simple wash with a soft cloth and garden hose to keep it looking great, a feature today's strapped-for-time homeowners totally appreciate!
No matter the color of vinyl siding, it's green. Vinyl siding uses minimal raw material in production, and nearly all scrap is reprocessed into new vinyl products – meaning nearly zero waste. Additionally, because there is no need for paint, stain, caulk, etc. maintenance-related toxins are reduced.
Real beauty runs deeper than just the surface. Such is the case with today's vinyl siding!
