Different Types of Siding Profiles

Replacing your old siding requires you to make a number of choices with regards to material, color and profile. Selecting a siding profile can be tricky especially since there are many options for this. High Performance Homes, a siding and patio door replacement company, discusses the different types of siding profiles to help you decide.


Horizontal Patterns


Horizontal siding profiles are the most commonly used patterns for homes. They include:


1. Traditional Lap – boards are partially layered on top of the other so as to create a water barrier that prevents moisture or rainfall from reaching the inside of the siding

2. Beaded – adds texture to the siding and features a bead at the bottom of each horizontal board

3. Dutch Lap – looks like the traditional lap siding but features a groove at the top of each horizontal board


Vertical Patterns


Vertical siding profiles are less common than horizontal panels, but they have also been gaining popularity in the past few years. They are typically used to match certain styles of homes.


1. Board and Batten – vertical boards come with battens that cover tracks, with the raised batten casting a shadow on the boards

2. Panel Siding – the vertical version of the traditional lap siding, with the surfaces kept flush


Shake Patterns


This siding profile basically mimics the wood shake roofing installed by top rated roofing companiesIt can be made into different shapes including round, square, staggered, fish scale, half cove, mitered corner, octagonal and hexagonal.


If you want your home to stand out, installing a siding with shake patterns can easily do the trick. With its unique appeal, your home can enjoy a distinct look that’s hard to miss.

For Cameron and everyone, again I say thank you! NW Natural has just recalculated our “equal pay” bill and we’ve gone from $67.00/month to $38.00/month. This is a savings of $348.00 per year plus the electric bill never once exceeded $90.00/month this summer saving us about $300 this year just is savings with the A/C. The windows remain beautiful, functional and more than everything promised! That and a leak free roof, who could ask for anything more! Thanks again!

“This contracting company recently replaced all the windows in my home. All of the associates I interacted with along the way were pleasant, knowledgeable, and professional. The way the windows were installed was done with precision and care for my home, and I did not have to pay any extra for trim around both the outside and inside of the windows. The end result is pleasing to look at, and I can already tell there’s a big difference in how insulated my home is.”
