Vinyl Siding vs. Stone - What to do with my house?

Post by RCGA » Tue Jun 13, 2017 6:15 pm

Long story short, I have the option of replacing the vinyl siding in my home or replacing the front with Fusion stone.

The current siding is relatively new and of a high-ish quality (Royal)

If vinyl, it would be a navy blue (Royal Midnight Surf) and include a vinyl shakes in the front gable (some shade of khaki)

If stone, Option 1 would be to start on the left corner, go up 3' up and wrap around the door (and not continuing to the right side).

Option 2 for the stone would be to do the do an "accent wall" look from top to bottom in the front porch area.

So why are you replacing and changing the colour if the siding is relatively new?
With out knowing all the details as to why, My suggestion is to keep the existing siding and use stone as an accent around the step/door area where it is missing in photo. Changing only the front colour in my mind is not going to look great with Burgundy and blue siding

Insurance can't find a color match so they said they'll either replace it all or do the stone alternative for the front.

Full replacement is around $11k, stone is around $3500

Ah I see so you would be replacing all the siding on the entire house not just the front. That makes more sense.
Any of your option would look great , I like the stone options better myself.

Go with stone- it will endure and add value to the house whereas vinyl won't.
