How long does vinyl siding last?
That's basically the post--how long does (better, not nec. best) vinyl siding last before it needs to be replaced? This siding would be used in a rural/semirural area in the Northeast. Trees near the house would be new plantings. "Needs to be replaced" would mean irretrievably shabby/dingy looking, brittle, cracked, color gone bad, etc. I'm guessing that trying to make good on the warranties would run into "normal wear" exclusions....?
