Construction methods for the smooth gets better. Definitely easier to clean and also easier to seal. Insulation factor is higher. Only downfall if repair is needed it's more expensive. I have the stick and tin again and will see of problems will develop.

Unfortunately there are only 10 possible poll options. And I suppose if you are clueless on your type of siding the poll is moot.
