Vinyl siding has been tested to withstand the harshest of climates to keep your home protected from the elements.
Vinyl siding has little to no maintenance, allowing homeowners to enjoy their home for years to come without spending time on additional upkeep.
Vinyl siding offers several variations of style that replicate other, more costly, styles of siding and a lower price point making luxury aesthetics more accessible to all homeowners.
Vinyl siding has come along way and now offers varying styles and textures to meet the aesthetic goals of any homeowner. Vinyl siding offers variations in profile, texture, color, thickness, and length. We have compiled basic information on the top six styles to help guide your decision making process.
this type of siding is the most common application where siding panels run horizontally across the house, parallel with the ground. This type of siding comes in several styles and textures and is generally layered with the top of one piece of siding tucked beneath the bottom of the piece directly above it.
Vertical Panels (Board and Batten)
this type of vinyl siding runs perpendicular to the ground and runs up and down the house vertically. The pattern is generally built by wider boards connected by narrower boards (batten) used to seal the space where the two wider boards meet. This type of siding is very weather proof and is great for blocking wind.
this is a style of horizontal panel that has a rounded edge with a corresponding groove along the bottom length of the piece to create a single rib that adds additional texture and an elevated finish to horizontal paneling. This is a reproduced variation of authentic, hand-crafted boards that have been highly sought after for generations.
this type of vinyl siding is named after the patter the pieces make when applied. This shingle style material has a rounded edge on one side to create a “scalloped” edge running along the home. Scalloped vinyl siding is generally used as accent, but can be used as a full coverage siding.
Shakes and Shingles
this type of vinyl siding is meant to simulate both the look and feel of cedar shake or wood siding, with the added benefits of vinyl. This style of siding offers all the beauty of hardy wood siding, but withstands weather much better and is less likely to succumb to insect, fungus, or animal damage.
this is standard vinyl siding that comes with a full backing of solid, rigid-foam insulated. This fills the space between the sidings layered profile and the wall behind it to help keep homes warm in the winter and cooler in the summer.
