Heres the pitch,, never needs painting ( saves money over the years vs. painting )

adds insulation , insulated backer board applied over existing siding save money in heating and a/c. Eliminates repairs of rotted wood, vinyl does not attract insects etc, so carpenter ants, wood peckers, and other critters wont eat your siding, hose it off, easy clean, cons nothing beats the beauty of real wood, or real stone, or real anything so savings aside theres the down fall , its fake looking to some people.
