Have a rental we are selling and as there is some wood rot on the current siding we want to replace with vinyl. My head is spinning over the different products and what would be best for my area in Spokane, Washington. I have estimates being given by companies using the following products: Royal Building Products, Crane Performance and Alcoa.

I deal with vinyl on a daily basis, and know the companies you mentioned. I am not familuar with your climate, but here in the midwest we get a good dose of all the extremes, and the only company I deal with is Alside. If you are looking for "The Best" vinyl options on the market, look at one of two products. CHarter Oak, which you can see at their website,, or their new product Prodigy, which you can see at They are not the cheapest guy on the block, but they are the best value for your dollar hands down.

Good Luck!

Thanks for the answer! We ended up going with

a recommendation from our Realtor and they are putting up Charter Oak. It was great to get

your feedback before we actually made the committment.
