Our premium vinyl shake siding was used in Michael and Amy’s winning flip. Premium vinyl isn’t just about curb appeal; it also adds property value! Vinyl siding adds a security blanket to the exterior. Vinyl is less likely to degrade or be damaged than other materials. When damage occurs, it’s much easier to replace than other siding options. As long as it is taken care of properly, vinyl shake siding can last for decades!

Vinyl shake siding is a synthetic alternative to cedar shake siding. It has the rustic look of freshly sawn cedar planks without the hassle of caring for real wood siding. It’s constructed of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), which is the same material as regular vinyl siding. Shake siding has a distinctive look that adds distinctive charm to your home.
