Vinyl is most preferred based on maintenance costs, durability, appearance, and resistance to damage.
Metal Siding – Metal siding has mostly disappeared and is no longer readily available. It provides less maintenance than wood but is very susceptible to scratching and denting. As the siding ages, it gives a tired look to the home, and painting it may become preferred to update the appearance of the home.
Vinyl Siding – Vinyl siding is designed to give the appearance of wood and comes in a wide range of quality levels and colors. Vinyl never requires painting, allowing the look to remain. The siding color comes through the entire panel, front to back, and has titanium dioxide that prevents fading, providing long-lasting lifetime color.
