Vinyl Siding - Facts and Tips

Posted on June 5, 2015 at 1:45 PM

What's the #1 exterior cladding in the U.S. and Canada? Vinyl siding!

How does vinyl siding help to protect your home?


  • In extreme weather events (all certified vinyl siding is tested to withstand winds of 110 mph, and most achieve a wind rating higher than that) including climate change — vinyl siding will withstand the hottest summers and sub-zero winters

  • Against color fade, because certified products come with another level of assurance when certified for color retention (and there are hundreds to choose from)

  • Against rot and decay, because polymer-based sidings do not absorb water and their rainscreening design does not trap water behind the siding — whereas fiber-based products are a mixture of wood pulp and sand, two things that will disintegrate over time when moisture penetrates the plank.
