Owens Corning, Certainteed and Georgia Pacific are three of the most popular brands of vinyl siding. Other brands include Heartland, Revere, Alcoa, Gentek and Mastic.
Vinyl siding comes in a variety of colors and textures. Many brands offer vinyl siding that mimics wood-grain lap siding, stone and wood shingle. Polyvinyl chloride is used in the manufacture of vinyl siding. Because of this, vinyl siding can last for many years. Vinyl siding panels are 12 feet long and cost between $2 and $7 per square foot, as of 2015. This easy-to-install siding requires little maintenance and the top brands offer a lifetime warranty.
