Rustic, High-Tech Siding

Rustic, High-Tech Siding

Vinyl siding has come along way and is a lot different than your parents siding!

Now, new technology and fresh ideas are making vinyl siding not just practical but aesthetically appealing, as well. More and more, homeowners are choosing vinyl based on color and trim options.

Siding colors are getting richer and deeper, in response to consumer demands for more selection. Vivid forest greens and intense red-browns are showing up in sample palettes all over the industry. Trims and accessories are showing more detail, and corner posts, scallops, cornices, and other accents are now part of the siding package.

As you drive around different neighborhoods, chances are you’ve noticed a trend in beautiful homes that sport a rustic look. Siding manufacturers are aware of this “rustic” demand, and have come out with a popular siding option known as CertainTeed.

For homeowners who want siding with a more rustic appearance, Cedar Impressions Triple 5-inch Perfection Shingles offer an authentic look. Molded from real cedar boards, the shingle panels are available in 12 colors. Each 15-by-60-inch panel consists of three rows of 5-inch shingle exposure. This “rustic” siding is actually very high tech. The PanelThermometer system displays the panel temperature so that the panels can be accurately installed at the correct temperature-line indicators. The shingles are 0.100 inch thick and come with a lifetime limited warranty.

Whether you like rustic or not, the good news is that siding is a beautiful, affordable option for your home’s exterior. And nowadays, you have a huge selection and color palette to choose from.

    I really enjoy that cedar aroma and the rustic look that you get. With cedar you can also have peace of mind as this type of wood will outlast mostly all of the other hardwoods and the best thing is it’s a pleasure to work with and that rustic look is amazing.
