We currently have vertical cedar siding on our contemporary home and am finding the siding much too costly to maintain. I understand there are vertical vinyl siding manufacturers out there but the length of the siding seems to be limited to only 12ft. One manufacturer, Alcoa, recommends using a J channel across the width of the house, creating a really ugly seam. This would seem to give our home that "modular home look" which we definitely DONT want. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Hi thejeromins,

You have 1 option, for sure, possibly a 2nd one.

1) Go with horizontal siding.

2) Hire a Contiguous Siding Installer. I know they've been making this type of siding for a few years now but I don't know if it's done for vertical siding. You can visit various Siding Mfgr. WEB Sites and e-mail them, or attend an area Home Show and talk to some Sales folks.

Other than that, perhaps someone else will have some feedback. (Stick around for a while.) My best to ya and hope this helps.

Ooops!!! Sorry 'bout that. For some reason, I thought you were talking about VINYL siding; not wood siding. My apologies.

As an aside, there are vertical siding mfgrs. out there. As to whether or not they make a cedar-style siding in lengths > 12', (as I said), you'll need to ask the Mfgrs. if there are Contiguous Siding Mfgrs. (and Installers) out there.
