Why should you consider vinyl siding for your home? For homeowner’s, it means peace: from the expense and trouble of repainting the house every 5 years or so, or getting it done by paying someone. Vinyl siding costs about 11% less than cedar siding. Conservatives mock at the idea of covering houses, mostly older homes that have important architectural detailing, in "plastic." Other common doubts are that vinyl siding cannot hold its color without yellowing or fading, that it clasps in the summer heat and that, it can conceal serious complications with moistness in the walls. These concerns were worthy in the past. With huge advance in the materials and technology this is no longer the case.
Vinyl siding is manufactured by extrusion process. In this two layers of PVC, the top layer is durable and weatherable material which covers up to twenty-five percent of the siding thickness, are laid down in a continuous extrusion process. Depending upon the color, this capstock may include about ten percent of titanium dioxide, which is a pigment and offers resistance to cessation from ultraviolet rays. Like any other thing that is exposed to the sun, Vinyl siding will certainly fade over time, but the rate at which it fades is a lot slower than other claddings. The manufactures give a standard 50 years of warranty and some come with lifetime warranty. Insulated siding are more energy efficient as it warps your house in constant insulation.
Vinyl siding comes with varied color and design and thickness. Manufactures even have patterns like fish-scale shingles that are found on old homes.

The horizontal siding look good on traditional homes, while vertical siding fits well with contemporary styling. The thickness can vary within 1 manufacturer.
