I'll venture to say that 90% of the homes in Canada has vinyl siding. No matter what the cost of the house. I'm on my 5th house with the stuff. I never do anything to it, except one house I had, one wall that was shaded all the time needed a rinse every couple years. Some spray nine in a bucket with a broom and it was back to new in 20 minutes. My parents place has the same (original) siding since 1984. I helped install it when I was 15. They're considering replacing it just for the sake of change. But it still looks good.
