Comment:
We had this siding installed around six years ago. Noticed a slight reduction in energy cost. It is extremely durable and an attractive siding, and worth the price. If my next home has vinyl siding, I will replace it with Prodigy. We no longer worry about hail damage to our house.

Comment:
Our previous home had vinyl siding that moved around a lot and made noise when the wind blew. This siding is very quiet - likely due to the foam backing which adds structure and insulation. We have had it over 2 years now and it still looks new. The slight texture of the surface helps to make the siding look good, but also can catch some dirt. I imagine that is the case with any textured siding though.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
