"Not worth the money"
I paid a lot of money for Sears siding in 2010 but I was happy with it because of the "lifetime" warranty. It is now 2015 and the siding is falling off the front of my house. When I called Sears to have it repaired they said the lifetime warranty will cover the the materials but not the labor (which is all I need since it just needs put up again). This alone make it not worth it as the original cost of this siding should cover any possible labor needed to repair it. The "piece of mind" I thought I was paying for just isn't worth it. Save your money and get a general contractor to do it. It will cost much less, even if you have to replace several times.

"Sears siding falling apart"
In 1999 my grandfather had put on the Sears siding. Soon after it started falling apart. The windows were crooked, they used a lot of cocking to fill in the gaps threw out the whole house. In 2008 there was a windstorm and some of the siding from the very top pitch came off. When I called for my grandfather, the Sears rep said that it was a "finger of god" accident and that it was not covered. Again this "finger of god" concept came across when we had a hail storm and wholes were put threw out the house. I have been very disappointed with sears! On top of it all, I cant find parts so that I can repair these "finger of god" mess- ups. Needless to say, after my grandfather passed in 2010 we found out how much he had paid for the siding. My grandfather was ripped off! I could have bought him a brand new double wide trailer with all the bells and whistles for that much! I wouldn't get sears or any of their products if you gave them to me. Very unsatisfied

"Sears Service"
We just had Sears install siding on our two story house. We bought from Sears because they said they do it all, including overseeing and providing a project coordinator to stay with us every step of the way. They hired a contractor to install the siding as we were told they would. But during the installation process, no one from Sears came by to check on the contractor, nor did we receive a call from the project coordinator or project consultant to check with us to see if the project was going ok. The contractor scheduled with us twice to start the installation (not the project coordinator) and twice he did not show up or call. The third time I called him he finally showed up. We were led to believe that a crew would be installing the siding. Two days there were two guys and the rest of the 8 days only one guy installed the siding (on a two story house). Several things we were told by the Project Consultant (the one who sold us this project) that would be done during installation were not done. Unfortunately did not get everything in writing. I didn't think I had to (dealing with Sears). Bottom line is we paid for a product and a service from Sears. The product we have and only time will tell if it stays up. But the service that we paid for we did not receive. We paid extra money for the Service as we could have had the siding installed much cheaper hiring a local contractor. If anyone is using Sears for a siding project because they provide a Service should think twice. It turns out that Sears is not a local company when it comes to Home improvement projects even though you have a Sears store in town. The Home improvement managers are few and located in a few locations. Save money and peace of mind and use good local contractors and not Sears. And if you do use Sears get everything and I mean everything including the installation techniques in writing. As for me I won't be paying Sears for services that don't provide again.

"Sears Vinyl Siding Made My House Look Brand New"
Our 20 year old house was looking pretty sad, the old T-111 siding was not in style and really need to be painted. We were never really happy with the T-111 siding but it was all we could afford when we built the house. One day we were at Sears and saw a flyer for their Weatherbeater vinyl siding. We asked to see a couple of jobs they installed and were very impressed both by the quality of their product and also their workmanship. We had the siding installed by Sears local installation crew a year ago and are very pleased. The crew that installed it was very pleasant, and our home went from drab to classy in a just a few days. We also chose to have the eaves covered which helped made the house look much better as well. Overall we are very pleased with our new vinyl siding and when it get's dirty we just rinse it off. The best part, no more painting for a long time!

"Durable Beauty Year after Year"
The vinyl siding on my house it fourteen years old, and it still looks great. I bought the siding from Sears and had it installed by a private contractor and have been extremely satisfied with the siding. What I like best about vinyl siding is I never have to worry about having it painted! This saves alot of cost and I figure over the fourteen year period of time, the vinyl siding has paid for itself two times over. Talk about a great investment. The only problem I ever had with my siding was during a very bad wind storm, a corner piece of the siding blew off. All things considered, that is a very small problem over a period of fourteen years. All it took to repair it was a hammer and a couple of nails and about five minutes. Weather and time has created some discoloration, but it is not noticeable unless you are looking at the siding close up. To keep my siding looking extra nice, I do powerwash it every year, and that is all I do to keep it looking great! If I ever have another house, it will have vinyl siding and I would by from Sears again, because I got the siding at a great price and it came with a great guarantee. So, put away your ladders, paint and brushes and go vinyl!
