If you want to replace the siding at your house, you may want to consider using vinyl. There are a lot of benefits to using vinyl siding for your house over choosing some other kind of siding.
If you want to add a lot of color to your house but you don't want to deal with the work that painting your house can bring, vinyl siding can meet your needs. Vinyl siding can come in a variety of shades, so you can find ones that will work right for your house. The benefit of using vinyl siding to get that color is that it is going to last longer than painting your house will, and you won't have to worry about upkeep like watching for peeling paint. If you think that the color isn't as bright as it used to be, it may just be that your siding is dirty and washing it off will get your color back.
If you want to have vinyl siding but you don't want it to look like you have vinyl siding, there are other choices open to you. One of them is that you get vinyl siding that is patterned so that it looks like other things. That can include things like clapboards and cedar shakes. Not only will the vinyl have that pattern stamped into it, it will also be dyed the appropriate color. People will have to get up close to your house to look at it before they can be sure that the siding isn't the clapboard and is indeed vinyl.
Vinyl siding is also relatively easy to maintain. Since it has a relatively long lifespan, mostly what you have to do is wash it once a year or so. You can get a power sprayer and wet it down, checking to see if there aren't any holes in your siding while you are doing that. After you have wet it down, you can also spray it with some soap to help get all the dirt off, and then rinse the siding. That should get it looking as good as new.
