Vinyl siding was the top cladding of choice for new homes in 1994 and remains the leading option in 2019, giving it a 25-year reign in the industry. This isn’t surprising given that vinyl siding is highly affordable, making it ideal for homeowners keen on working with a budget. What’s even better, however, is that vinyl siding has come so far. Today, options from trusted siding and roofing contractor Century Roofing and Siding are even more beautiful, durable and easy to maintain, making it a cost-effective exterior improvement solution.The Facts

According to a survey, there were 840,000 single-family dwellings built in 2018 and vinyl siding was installed on 215,000 of them. This is an impressive figure, accounting for 26% of the market, but industry analysts are saying new construction only accounts for a part of the bigger picture. This is because vinyl siding is just as popular in the remodeling market. 

A lot of homeowners are creatures of habit so while they want to update their property to boost curb appeal, they have the tendency to replace using like materials, whether for roofing or siding. Given vinyl siding has been historically used in a lot of homes, this results in many properties simply getting new cladding in the form of new vinyl siding. 

In 2018, total siding sold amounted to 63 million squares, with one square equivalent to 100 square feet. Vinyl siding represents 28% of the national value, or just under 18 million squares.
