Vinyl Siding Color Stereotypes
A past stereotype of vinyl siding centered around its color, and how homeowners were restricted to light color only. Traditionally, vinyl siding was made from polyvinyl chloride, which caused dark color to fade in prolonged sunlight exposure.
Today, vinyl siding is manufactured form “solarkote” and other chemically advanced materials, allowing darker, richer color to surface as vinyl siding options. This coating is an acrylic material that resists the elements, enabling a range of darker color options.
