Vinyl Siding Ratings
There are several different ratings that measure the quality of vinyl siding: ASTM E119 and ASTM D3679 both measure the degree to which siding resists fire. Several organizations have ratings that measure the degree to which siding resists curling, cracking and color fade.
While all of these ratings are useful, they don't answer the more basic question: How satisifed are other homeowners with their siding? The ratings below answer that question.
SidingCompare.com has collected consumer reviews of vinyl siding since 2010. When homeowners submit their reviews, they include a rating of their satisfaction that varies from 1 to 5: "Very Unsatisfied" to "Very Satisfied". The higher the rating, the higher the satisfaction. Here are the averages of those ratings for different brands of siding:
We have collected reviews on more than 20 brands of vinyl siding. However, the preceding list includes fewer than half of these. If we have only collected a few reviews, we run the risk that a single homeowner might bias the average rating too far in one direction For that reason, we have only included the average rating for brands that at least 5 consumers have reviewed. However, all of our vinyl siding reviews are available to the public.
