Out of the Woods: The Adaptability of Composite Cedar
See How Our Cedar Shingles Go the Distance
Back in the 17th century, home exteriors revolved around one main purpose: survival. As they struggled to endure New England’s brutal winters, early American settlers valued cedar as a sturdy roofing option. Leveraging cedar’s durability and cutting qualities, the pilgrims were able to persevere.
Today, homeowners cherish cedar for the same reasons as their ancestors did long ago. Only now, material choice is less about survival, and more about self-expression.
Cedar is no longer restricted to country homes and back-road retreats. With composite cedar, homeowners can embrace this style from coast to coast.
Ranches: Putting the Heart in Home
There’s no right or wrong way to design a ranch; each one has its own unique look and standout features. With this flexibility, you can get creative and build your picture-perfect home.
Looking to spice things up using multiple materials? Enrich your exterior with composite cedar, and then skirt the foundation with Stacked Stone. This delivers great looks, and will make your quaint ranch appear larger.
The Sunny Side: Endurance Brought to Light
Midwest and coastal homes get their fair share of sun. And so, homeowners in these areas need siding that won’t fade at the speed of light. Emerging as a promising alternative, composite siding offers the aesthetics of natural cedar—with a few tricks up its sleeves.
Our cedar products are manufactured with UV inhibitors and a proprietary clear coat*. With this protection, you can expose your siding to the sun, without worrying about premature fading.
*Clear coat is offered only Weathered Series colors.
The Pool House: Swim in Style
It’s important to keep in mind that form follows function. Pool houses are something that homeowners use regularly. And when there are children nearby, the pool area can become quite rowdy.
Demand the best of both worlds with composite cedar. Enjoy the intricate, authentic patterns of real cedar, and the durability of composite products. Our panels rest flat on the wall, and are more than twice as thick as vinyl siding. Using composite shingles, you can build a pool house that captivates the eye—and puts your mind at ease.
