New siding options?

Our new house needs some siding work, I'd like to replace it with what it has but not sure if I want to be staining it every 2 years. I'm considering vinal siding but there is some windows work we ned to do. If I get the vinal siding done I'm afraid I'll have to have the installers back after I replace some windows to "finish" around the windows again. Any ideas or thoughts?

Probably would not be a bad idea to do the windows first in this case,or atleast those bay windows anyway.If you are not changing the window sizes then you can do the rest of the windows at any time without concern about ruining the siding or having the siders back to fix anytthing when done.However,it would be in you're best interest to do the windows first and any roofing that would need to done so you won't damage anything.
Normally most of the work concerning window replacement involves inside work with the changing of the sills and just the way the windows are made now versus then,meaning when the house was built,however the work should be minimal

Everyones telling me I'd have to stain every couple years to protect the wood, it obviously wasn't done with the current siding. Is this to often? How long shoud the stain protect the siding?

I would expect properly applied stain to perform as well as properly applied paint: 10, 15, or more years.
