Vinyl siding choices

Just wondering where is a good place to start with choosing a good manufacturer for vinyl siding. Ive installed it once before with a friend on his house, but I never really got into the details .. This is going on my house so I wanna be prepared as best I can when I buy the material... Thanks in advance

Vinyl siding choices

Depends on your price pint.

My favorite vinyl is Craneboard Insulated Vinyl

Vinyl siding choices

Check out this site.
It even has a design center so you can see different types of siding and even colors.
Most people do not do not have a clue about all the available options that can really make a siding job pop, so take the time to look around.
Siding sounds like a simple job to do but by far I've seen more done wrong then right.
I see no point in going with "insulated siding". There's still air gaps at the bottom, ends and butt joint and the price for the siding may well be 3 times as much.
Also going to be paying more for all the trim because it will need to be 1". It can also cause issues around the windows and doors because it sticks out so far.
