Cedar vinyl siding: great looks with low maintenance

Cedar vinyl siding adds an air of distinction to any home. There are several types of cedar-like siding on the market and each has its own characteristics. Here's a look at two types by CertainTeed--a 5" straight edge shingle and a 9" staggered shingle with a rough split.

Both offer an upscale look and work well with new construction or remodeling. The siding carries a lifetime limited warranty and, like all vinyl products, does not require painting or regular maintenance. Both products have deep shadow lines between the siding sections for extra visual depth. The difference between these two product lines is in the detailing and the overall look they portray.

While costs will vary based on the local market, cedar vinyl siding typically is priced around $7 per square foot, depending on the product and your local market.
