I'm looking to research the advantages and disadvantages of the protective coatings that go on like paint and are "vinyl" or "plastic" or "ceramic". Anyway they are called liquid siding products. Paint will not last and real vinyl siding fades, so is this a good alternate? I have t-1-11 rough surface on the exterior now. Thanks for your info.

All these products are is an elastomeric coating, which is very thick and flexible and will bridge across hairline cracks. They say it will last a lifetime without fading, peeling, chalking & etc. Nothing will hold like this when it is exposed to sunlight and moisture. From what I hear they charge 4 to 5 times what a regular paint job would cost, and you should get at least 6 to 7 years out of a paint job on T1-11. So unless you are planing to stay in your house for at least 30 years and you have alot of money setting around that you don't know what to do with I would not reccomend that you go with this type of system. Also do you really want your house to stay the same color forever?
