Because vinyl siding is so lightweight, no structural reinforcement is necessary. Made of polyurethane, polypropylene, plastic recycled or polymer-based materials, brick vinyl siding is also known as faux or simulated brick.

Deciding which type of vinyl siding to use can depend on what surface you plan to cover and whether you are planning an interior or exterior home improvment project. Keep in mind that most vinyl siding can be installed over any surface that is sound, dry and clean--indoors or out. Because it requires only standard carpentry tools, it might even be a good project for the handyman in the house.
