Is the type of siding on a house, like vinyl, a rating factor for insurance premiums?

There is no straight-forward answer to what building materials you use for your house and the homeowners insurance rate you will end up with.

Should I choose a company that is cheaper for my auto insurance or my home?

There's a couple of things to think about. While price is important, I would make sure you have equal coverage for your home and your auto from both Travelers and State Farm.
