Vinyl Siding is one of the more low-maintenance materials on the market for siding. It usually requires cleaning once a year to preserve the attractiveness of the panels. As technology continues to make improvements in siding, vinyl siding has gone through a lot of improvements as well. It look more authentic than ever before, when compared to many wood sidings. It also is more durable and is less prone to dents and cracking like the old-fashioned aluminum siding.
