We are replacing siding on our 1958 home in Norwood, MA. Of CertainTeed, what is best: vinyl, plastic/vinyl cedar shake, or cedarboard?

The siding we are replacing is original, so it's in pretty rough shape. I am a librarian and have been doing research, but am not a siding person, so am over my head. We are also researching the best way to insulate and will be replacing windows. The windows we are considering at this point are Marvin and fiberglass/wood versus all-vinyl. We plan to stay in the house as long as possible. We have had a recent moisture/condensation problem coming from the original aluminum insulation that was put in as a barrier in 1958 -- so that will also be coming out.
