I'm not sure of the type of vine your referring too.

Vines can become invasive and cause extensive damage to a homes siding.
Depending on the material your siding is, may decide on how to remove the vine.
I have heard of some success with a pressure washer in removing vine from siding, but you can also damage wood and brick with to much water pressure.
