Factors that impact vinyl siding quotes

  • Quality. Thinner vinyl is more prone to nicks, dents, and distortion. Premium styles (roughly .042" thick or more) lasts longer and costs more. Quotes should include style thickness.
  • Style. Traditional lap-style panels cost less than vinyl shakes, shingles, and logs.
  • Warranty. Thinner, less costly styles have lesser warranties. Thicker styles' rigidity helps increase the duration of warranties.

A good contractor specializing in vinyl siding can help you sort out your options and give you the best value for your money. You are in the driver's seat about what must be put in writing. Don't accept verbal promises.
