The features that make Alcoa vinyl siding so popular include:

- Selection: While the performance of your home siding is important, Alcoa ensures that you don't have to sacrifice beauty for reliability. Choose from dozens of Alcoa vinyl siding colors and numerous designs, including traditional vinyl and vinyl that imitates real wood shake, shingles, and half rounds.
- Value: Save time, money, and hassles by installing Alcoa vinyl siding which, unlike wood, won't crack, rot, flake, peel, or become infested by insects.
