You may believe that vinyl siding all looks very similar, and it can, but it doesn’t have to. When people talk about the style of vinyl siding, they can be referring to a myriad of things. You can choose the profile, texture, color, thickness, length of the panels, and whether it is insulated or non-insulated.
There are eight basic styles of vinyl siding:
- Horizontal panels
- Vertical panels
- Traditional lap
- Dutch lap
- Board & Batten
The three main styles of vinyl siding most commonly seen include
- clapboard that runs across your home horizontally,
- board and batten that runs vertically, and
- cedar shake.
You can even mix and match styles to make the most out of your home’s size and appearance. Many homeowners choose to use batten and board siding with scalloped accents for a charming aesthetic. When you hear people talk about siding types, they are generally talking about the different materials siding is available in.
