Vinyl Siding Options:
Vinyl siding is plastic exterior siding for a house, used for decoration and weatherproofing, imitating wood clapboard, and used instead of other materials such as aluminum or fiber cement siding. It is an engineered product, manufactured primarily from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) resin.

Double Dutch lap vinyl siding has a versatile design that is ideal for all types of residential properties.
The main reason many homeowners choose Masonite siding is because it looks like wood but doesn’t come with the same troubles. Because of its strength, there is no swelling, shrinking, or blistering. It still retains that traditional, classic look of wood, but is cheaper than lumber to cut down on siding cost. Also, since the material is partially synthetic, it creates a gentler impact on the environment since it uses fewer trees in its initial production. And due to its artificial nature, there is also less risk of insect infestation. You can choose textured, smooth or beaded.
This siding works well for a wide range of climates. Also called horizontal siding or clapboard, lap siding, may be made of wood, fiber-cement, plywood, hardboard, or similar materials. Most lap siding is beveled, meaning that the bottom edge is thicker than the top. As its name “lap” implies, an upper siding board laps over the board below it by 1 to 2 inches.
This siding has a more natural, wood-grained look. T1-11 siding is a wood or wood-based siding product that reached its height of popularity in the 60’s, 70’s and early 80’s, when a more natural, wood-grained look was all the rage. Its widespread use has dwindled as other siding materials, including steel, aluminum, composite and vinyl siding have taken over the market. It is still produced, however, and if you’re looking for a more natural product, T1-11 just might be just what you’ve been searching for.
