Vinyl Siding Contest Begins, an independent resource on vinyl siding, has launched a nationwide contest directed at homeowners and contractors. Contestants are invited to submit photos of their home exterior projects for a chance to win weekly and grand prizes. Weekly prizes of $50 gift cards will be awarded to homeowners. A grand prize of a $250 gift card will be given to the overall winning homeowner. Weekly contractor winners will be permitted to display finalist badges on their websites, and the contractor responsible for the overall winning project will earn the title of America’s Best Siding Contractor.

“Many contests target homeowners but seldom highlight the local contractors who drive the renovation from start to finish,” says Samantha Chun, spokesperson for “That’s why we’re taking a different approach; we want to give credit where credit is due.”

The contest launched May 14 and entries will be accepted through June 15. Each week, the contractor with the most votes will be given a “finalist” badge and homeowners associated with the winning entries will receive a $50 gift card. The grand-prize-winning contractor will earn the title of America’s Best Siding Contractor and the homeowner associated with the top project will be awarded a $250 gift card.

“We created this contest as a way to showcase how homes can be completely transformed by new siding,” Chun continues. “We believe we’ll see some of today’s best home siding projects, which we hope will inspire many home improvement projects this summer.”
