PBS Home Improvement Host Vicki Payne Joining VSI at Southern Ideal Home Show – Charlotte
At 11:30 a.m., she will discuss exterior design at the IDEAL Home Stage in a presentation sponsored by Charlotte Sides with Vinyl.

On the beauty side, when you mix materials, incorporate a variety of shapes, use rich colors to accentuate windows and doors or the whole house, the synergies are spectacular. On the performance side, choice of materials is critical make sure you go with something that is durable, so that it will retain long-lasting beauty but not require a lot of effort to maintain. Vinyl siding has been the number one choice in exterior cladding for the last 20 years, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
