If you've been following this Bulletin Board very long (or other similar ones on the 'net), you're sure to find that the consensus is *strongly* against vinyl siding.
A relatively new product called Hardi-Plank (http://www.jameshardie.com) is gaining favor, and I have yet to encounter a negative post about it on the home repair BBSs.
There are insecticide additives for paint, which I'm sure will work with shingle stain as well, and that would be another option. However, I'm sure the Hardi-Plank would be vastly preferable to vinyl!
P.S. Don't confuse Hardi-Plank with the various pressed-board sidings out there--from what I hear, they're even worse than vinyl! Hardi-Plank is made from some kind of fiber-cement.
