Pros of vinyl siding shingles

  • Shapes: Vinyl siding used to mean long, uniform panels that made your house blend in with a thousand others. Today's vinyl can be shaped to create realistic shingles, logs, and other textures that give you a more unique look.
  • Colors: In years past, vinyl siding manufacturers limited their selection to lighter colors because of vinyl's propensity to fade. With new, colorfast tinting, manufacturers now offer much darker colors as well. This especially helps improve the natural look of shingle siding.
  • Function: Unlike the material of 25 years ago, today's vinyl is more resistant to temperature changes and less likely to crack or warp in heat. Lower maintenance than wood, vinyl is easier to clean and doesn't require repainting or staining.
  • Price: Vinyl siding shingles are very cost effective compared to wood. At about $10-$15 per 14.5" x 49" panel, it's budget-friendly. Cedar shingles, for instance, will cost two to three times as much as vinyl.
