Vinyl still gets a bad rap, despite recent environmental impact studies suggesting it isn’t as bad for the planet as once thought. And alternative cladding options continue to grab market share.

Vinyl still dominates the siding market, but for those who want an alternative, options exist. Products are available in a wide range of materials, colors, and systems.

Made from steel, aluminum, polymers, fiber-reinforced concrete and wood composites, today’s vinyl siding alternatives feature easy installation, low maintenance, and protection from extreme weather, offering contractors and homeowners a bevy of cladding options designed to mimic natural wood, brick, and stone without the associated upkeep.
