Beaded vinyl siding is a particular type of siding that is very distinctive looking and many homeowners feel adds a nice touch of elegance and charm to the overall look of a home.
Beaded Vinyl Siding Basics
With a beaded vinyl siding, there is raised bead that runs the length of the horizontal board. The panels can be vertical, but they are almost always horizontal lap boards. So for a 5″ wide panel, there is a bead that is roughly the width and height of a standard pencil that runs the length of the board and is placed in the very middle of the panel. The result is more visual interest with the shadow and depth that is added to the panels. Many homeowners feel it adds a southern charm and elegance to a home. Other homeowners feel it’s a little too busy for their taste and prefer a standard dutch lap profile.
Beaded Vinyl Siding Costs
A beaded vinyl siding will often add a touch in terms of price as compared to a comparable siding product, say 10% for the added production and material. We typically estimate vinyl siding prices at $0.50 to $3.50 per square foot (product only not including the installation). So assume a beaded version ranges in price from $.55 to $3.75 per square foot, with most of that high end cost reserved from insulated vinyl siding or foam backed products.
