Beautiful, durable, low-maintenance exterior products like vinyl siding remain at the top of the list for remodeling projects.

Coordinating traditional vinyl siding with shake or shingle siding, stone veneer, shutters, windows and trim is increasingly important. As a result, Ply Gem has expanded select vinyl siding lines to include premium darker colors, along with a cellular PVC trim line plus stone veneer in ten profiles and 100 color combinations, all from a single manufacturer.

How does your siding help residential remodelers succeed?

Vinyl’s maintenance-free durability and easy installation have helped make it a leading choice for home siding. With the trend toward bold colors and rich textures, The Foundry offers homeowners dramatic distinction with its authentic cedar-inspired siding presented in the industry’s widest color palette. Homeowners drawn to the charm of hand-split cedar siding are treated to rich detail from the line’s shakes, shingles and shapes, without the hassle of wood siding’s upkeep. There’s no splitting, bowing or rotting. There’s also no worry about termites, and no scraping, sanding, staining or painting. And, there’s no noticeable pattern repetition. It’s accomplished with a proprietary manufacturing process that reproduces cedar’s natural grain and random patterns with different molds.
