Beaded vinyl siding is siding that has a textured face. Vinyl siding is used as replacement siding on older homes because it is easy to install and place over older siding. It is different from other types of vinyl siding in that it is textured with beads that can be felt when a person runs their hand along the siding.
Uses for Beaded Vinyl Siding
Beaded vinyl siding, like all types of vinyl siding, is used mostly in newer homes between $250,000 and $300,000 in price. It is second to stucco as a siding material for homes priced between $300,000 and half a million dollars. In 2008 33 percent of new homes built used vinyl siding material, including beaded vinyl siding, in their construction versus 25 percent for brick, 23 percent for stucco, 13 percent for fiber cement siding and 6 percent for other siding materials.
Care and Maintenance of Vinyl Siding
