The Different Types of Vinyl Siding

Aug 25, 2013

At Continental Siding in Kansas City, we’ve been in the siding and home improvements business since 1982 – that’s over three decades in the siding industry! In all that time, we’ve performed over 44,000 vinyl siding installations. And, with all our years of experience, we’ve learned that when most people think about vinyl siding, they create a picture in their minds of “traditional” vinyl siding. Maybe it’s yellow, maybe it’s white, but in any case, it’s almost the same “idea” about what vinyl siding looks like. People don’t typically think of vinyl siding in other forms because they’re unfamiliar with the different types of vinyl siding available. And we’re here to tell you that vinyl siding comes in a lot of varieties.

When talking about the different types of vinyl siding available, it should be first stated that vinyl siding comes in over 200 color choices. So, if you’re looking for a “Harbor Gray” siding material to go with your “Dover White” trim and a “Tardis Blue” front door, we can accommodate that request. “Harbor Gray” is just one of the hundreds of standard colors you can choose for your vinyl siding. And if you have a special request, perhaps a “Cornflower Blue” that matches your favorite tie, you can bring in a swatch and we’ll do our very best to help match the color. But, we’ve gotten off topic talking about color choices. What we really want to talk about is types of vinyl siding.

If you’re looking into vinyl siding and you’re hoping to find something unique, why not take a look at Log Cabin vinyl siding. You heard right! In its composition and makeup, vinyl siding is a versatile material. It can be shaped and colored and textured by the manufacturers to affect a number of different appearances. As such, there are a number of different types of vinyl siding to be found that don’t look much like traditional vinyl siding. The Log Cabin vinyl siding is available through Continental Siding in Kansas City. It offers all the durability and long-lasting quality of our other vinyl siding products, but once installed, it looks just like a log cabin construction. And, obviously, the Log Cabin vinyl siding is completely impervious to wood-boring insects. Now, that’s a real bonus!

Perhaps you’d like something a little less rustic, something more traditional on the exterior of your home. We might suggest our polymer Shake Siding. The Shake Siding material we have available is truly unique. The siding is fabricated from over 100 unique molds. Each strip of Shake Siding is patterned from realistic wood graining and detail – including cedar shingles, split shakes, and cedar shakes. And, like traditional vinyl siding, the Shake Siding is available in over 200 color choices.

At Continental Siding, we also stock Staggered Siding, Shingle Siding, and realistic vinyl Stone Siding. Each of these siding products is high-quality in design and manufacture, and each will add decades to the life of the exterior of your home.
