  1. On #42 you mention an Owens Corning panel but show a picture of Mastic Liberty Elite. Did you take panel thickness into account and even more importantly the amount of TIO2 used in each panel to protect the panels from fading as well as how well the companies warrant their products and stand behind them when there is a problem?

    • Thank you the image has been corrected. Panel thickness is taken into account in the durability rating. However as a caution we have seen very thick panels fail due to composition and vinyl formulas which is why this is not always an absolute comparison. Titanium dioxide is a very important factor for color retention and yes to the extent we know this it is always taken into account, please know that the actual percentage of TIO2 is almost never published. Companies standing behind their warranty is hit or miss and very situation dependent. IN general either a massive amount of communication and complaining OR a highly qualified contractor with advanced certifications is the only real way to get substantial relief from vinyl siding companies.

  2. Could you please explain what is the price you are showing (for example $240 for Craneboard)? How does it correspond to $3 to $7 per square foot installed quoted on other websites?

  3. is there a 3″ dutchlap vinyl made anymore by anybody

  4. as an installer of vinyl siding for 12 years, there is no way I would ever endorse any product Royal creates. it is the only brand, regardless if it’s royalcrest, estate, board and batten, or even their soffit lines, that I’ve had to have actual representives of the company meet with homeowners to resolve issues with their products. Their Tennessee factory has halted due to the errors coming off their lines due to poor quality control. for example, a double 4.5 Dutch lap product from one run in Tennessee will have a reveal height of 8 7/8″ and a totally different grain pattern and tint then a box of Canadien made product of the same line, which would have a reveal of 9 1/8″. pebble clay seems to be the worst offender. the royalcrest double 4 is the worst, the final pieces never stay snapped in. within 3 months, you have to go back and put trim nails in the weep holes just to get it to stay snapped. awful products that seem to be the cheapest price and cheapest made that is sold in the Midwest. Want a panel worthwhile for a few pennies more? Variform and American legend are the way to go.
