I have been offered 2 different siding products at approximately the same price.
Royal Woodland comes in 20 foot lengths which means there are about 50% less laps and looks more seamless. It is guaranteed not to fade and has a transferable warranty on materials and labor for 50 years. It comes a variety of lighter colors; light grey, light blue, a darker grey, etc.

Alside Charter Oak comes in standard 12 foot lengths, has the same warranty as Royal but comes in a host of new Architectural Color including a dark green, brick red, darker blue, sandy grey, etc.

I love the Alside colors especially the darker blue. I would like to have my home stand out from the rest of the whites, beiges, and grey homes in my area and I think it would be stunning.

But... is Alside as good as Royal? If you were faced with this decision which would you choose?

You may want to ask your Alside dealer about Charter Oak XL. This is the same panel as the 12', but in 16'1" lenght. It may cost a bit more, but it is avail. in the color you like.
Regarding Alside as a company, their logo reads, "Alside First on America's Homes", because they have been around since 1947, and invented aluminum siding for residential use. They don't make aluminum anymore, but they do make Charter Oak which is the best vinyl product on the market hands down. Nothing can compete with the tri-beam construction. It is the best, so good, I put it on my mother's house last summer.
Hope I helped.

Good Luck!
