Woodn't Ya Know


Vinyl shingles offer the same warmth, texture and variance of natural wood but without the wear and tear. While they may look like lumber, these vinyl shingles won’t absorb any water, are impervious to insects, and can withstand strong winds.

Cool and Quiet


Haven Insulated Siding by Royal is an energy-efficient cladding that comes in 15 different colors. It reflects radiant heat and reduces thermal conductivity to keep your house cool. The siding also reduces noise by 45%—perfect for blocking your neighbor’s garage band!

Better Board and Batten


CedarBoards Insulated Siding by Certainteed
saves energy, absorbs sound, and has superior impact-resistance thanks to its “foam insulation” technology that encapsulates your home in a warm blanket. All that while maintaining the classic look of natural wood.

Strong and Steady


The Signature Supreme siding by Gentek Building Products
provides superior strength and rigidity with its .044″ panel thickness, rolled nail hem, and deep 5/8″ butt height. Its new PowerLok locking system keeps each panel in place for greater wind resistance – and its clean lines bring a touch of elegance to any exterior.

Style Statement


Not all vinyl siding needs to be linear. The Cedar Impressions by Certainteed
feature scalloped panels that add interesting architectural detail to your home’s exterior. The product resists warping and color fading, and hides scratches because the color goes all the way through the panel.

Won't Fade Away


The Timberbay
exterior cladding siding products, by ProVia, offer a distinct wood etching intended to replicate natural cedar. The half-inch thick cut shakes are available in nine shades with UV inhibitors that help keep colors rich.

Don't Skirt Away


Parkside Vinyl Skirting by Georgia-Pacific Vinyl Siding
provides a classic, finishing touch to outdoor cladding. The vinyl skirting comes with built-in center vents and is made with a low-maintenance material that can be easily washed clean with a garden hose.

Stronger Than a Storm


Ply Gem Mastic Quest Siding is capable of sustaining tornado-force winds of up to 240 mph. Available in a variety of weather-resistant colors, this siding stays straight with extra rigidity in three critical areas: the nail hem, the panel projection, and the locking system.

Branch Out


Vinyl timber siding mimics the rustic look of real logs, which can be expensive and difficult to install. It captures the charm of authentic wood siding through a texture-molding process. Anyone in the market for a log cabin?

Foam Fun


Prodigy from Alside
has a precisely contoured, insulating foam underlayment that’s up to 1.5-inches thick, making it the thickest foam in the market. This siding offers a surface texture that feels like milled lumber, the rigidity of wood and exceptional resistance to heat flow.
