Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is vinyl siding?

Vinyl siding is a form of plastic siding that’s known for its durability, affordability and low-maintenance qualities. It’s also relatively easy to install and versatile. It comes in different styles and colors, and it can mimic the appearance of wood and other materials. 

How long does vinyl siding last?

Vinyl siding can last up to 60 years, according to the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors. However, you need to stay on top of repairs, maintenance and cleaning if you want your siding to last a long time.

To extend your vinyl siding’s lifespan, hire a professional who can clean and repair your siding as needed.

What kind of paint can you use on vinyl siding?

If you’re thinking about painting your vinyl siding, choose a paint that has acrylic or urethane resins to help it stick to the vinyl. Many experts recommend choosing an exterior latex urethane paint. 

However, you should always find out from your vinyl siding manufacturer if your warranty will be void if you decide to paint it, states the Vinyl Siding Institute.

How do you remove vinyl siding?

Homeowners can remove vinyl siding by using a removal tool, such as a zip tool. Removing the siding yourself may save you money. But if you’re not an experienced DIY-er (or you just don’t want to do this task on your own), you can hire a siding contractor to handle this for you.

What do you put under vinyl siding?

When installing vinyl siding, a contractor will ensure the following is underneath:

  • Sheathing or backerboard
  • Insulation (blown, house wrap, sheet)
  • Furring strips
  • Water-resistive barrier

vinyl siding installer can help ensure you have everything you need before they add the siding to your house.
