Vinyl siding is durable and available in a ton of textures and colors. Since the color is throughout the vinyl, dings, damages and scrapes aren’t as obvious. Advanced production techniques can create siding that does a great job of resembling wood-grain or stone. As well as being lightweight, vinyl can, in most cases, be installed directly over existing materials. This makes it a good retrofit option. And being easy to handle, vinyl installation can be done quickly, which cuts down on labor costs.
