Advancements in vinyl brick siding

When it was first introduced in the 1950's, vinyl siding was simply an alternative for aluminum siding. And it looked like it. Now, nearly half a century later, vinyl siding comes in multiple shapes and sizes, including brick, rock, log, and cedar shake. While the early product had esthetic and performance problems, technological advances and design improvements have made it the most widely used siding today.

Advancements in vinyl brick siding

  • Consistency. The color and quality of early vinyl siding was often inconsistent due to the mono-extrusion process by which it was made. Today, vinyl siding is made by a process called co-extrusion, which is faster and produces a more consistent product.
  • Durability. One of the big plus-factors of vinyl siding is that it lasts. Modern siding is much more resistant to warping and cracking, and because of advancements in pigmentation, the colors are much less likely to fade.
  • Versatility. Within the world of vinyl brick siding, your choices are many. Whether you're choosing between textures, colors or size, you're sure to find the look you're going for.
  • Price. Though prices vary depending on the manufacturer and style you choose, there is no doubt that vinyl brick siding is less expensive than brick. You can find top-of-the-line panels for around $65 (46 1/2 inches wide and 25 1/2 inches high).

If you are considering siding your home with vinyl brick siding, you can rest assured that the product you're choosing is tried and true. Of course, the quality of any product depends largely on the manufacturer. Purchase your siding from a reputable source: seek out companies with customer reviews and never buy siding that comes without a warranty.
