What Is Vinyl Shake Siding?

Cedar shake siding might conjure the image of a house by the sea. It’s rustic and beautiful in its simplicity. While vinyl shake siding is made entirely of plastics and plastics composites, formulated with UV inhibitors and other ingredients that make it resistant to harsh weather conditions, it closely captures the beauty and texture of real cedar, but has none of its problems.
Like all vinyl siding, vinyl shake siding is strong and maintenance free. It keeps your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer, all while easily withstanding insects, high winds, moisture, and other harsh weather conditions.

Vinyl shake siding, like cedar, adds a visual interest to your home unlike any other siding material and nicely compliments stone or clapboard.
Vinyl shake siding is easily installed, thanks to an interlocking system that assures a tight fit. With vinyl shake siding you can enjoy its classic look, which will only add to your home’s value and upgrade its appearance, and still benefit from the low-cost and ease of vinyl siding.
