Updated: Nov 18, 2022

If you are looking to improve the appearance of your home, you are likely debating between aluminum siding vs. vinyl to complete the job.

So, which option is best? We explore below.

Vinyl Siding

Vinyl siding is a popular option for many homeowners.

This choice is a less expensive alternative to aluminum siding and does not scratch or fade very easily.

In fact, you will never need to replace the color on your vinyl siding as it is permeated all the way through the vinyl.

However, this option can become brittle and crack over time, especially when exposed to extreme temperature fluctuations.

Aluminum Siding

Aluminum siding is much sturdier than vinyl siding in that it is comprised of a material less susceptible to cracks, even over a long period of time.

Many homeowners prefer this option, especially if they anticipate wanting to change the color eventually.

While vinyl siding cannot be painted on, aluminum siding holds color quote well.

However, aluminum siding does not have as long as a shelf life as its vinyl counterpart.

Additionally, if you live in an area prone to hail storms, aluminum is more easily dented and can fade in color over time.
