Only certain types of siding qualify and they must have insulation. However, even some insulated siding products will not qualify. Consult with your sales rep before signing the contract.
Depending on the size of the job, new siding installation can take anywhere from two to five days.
What kind of maintenance is required?
There really is no maintenance, just occasional cleaning. Ordinarily, the cleaning action of a rainfall will be adequate to wash your vinyl siding. However, vinyl siding and soffit should be washed periodically by hosing with a garden hose and clear water, particularly in those areas not exposed directly to rain.

Does Siding Increase the Re-sale Value of my Home?
In terms of adding resale value to your home, vinyl siding is one of the best investments you can make. In its annual survey of project cost versus added value, Remodeling magazine said that "the highest payback comes from projects that give an older home the same features that have become standard in new homes."
Exterior improvements such as the installation of vinyl siding also make a home more attractive on the market. According to a real estate agent interviewed by Remodeling, "Things like new siding and new windows will not add dollar for dollar value...(but) they will cause the house to sell quicker for more money."
Another point to keep in mind: if, like many homeowners, you add insulation to an older home at the same time you're having vinyl siding installed, you add even greater value and market appeal to your home.
In some cases it is better to install new siding over pre-existing siding. This not only simplifies installation, but also leaves an extra layer of insulation on your home.
