Like many building materials and methods, vinyl siding has evolved.

Today’s vinyl siding options allow you to provide a low-maintenance and eco-friendly renovation to your home, while also improving the appearance.

PlyGem’s Mastic line, for example, is a leader in vinyl siding. Their innovations include different lines, colors, and textures so that you can match the siding to the architecture of your home—from traditional to contemporary.

So, which style is right for your home?

Lap siding looks like clapboard, with horizontal lines. Some types of lap siding, like Quest and Carvedwood, have been engineered to closely resemble wood clapboard.

Charleston, a Southern architectural classic, features the crisp lines of contemporary bead board. Dutch lap is a style of vinyl siding that has a decorative groove that adds a strong shadow line to the side of your home. Many of Mastic’s vinyl siding styles include a Dutch Lap option.

Vertical siding is used on an entire exterior or as accent panels on certain architectural styles. Mastic’s Board + Batten Designer Series is versatile for a wide range of homes and works in either whole house cladding or as accents. Ventura and Pro-Bead present a softer look for vertical siding, like wainscoting.

The lines of your vinyl siding can be subtle or dramatic, depending on your choice.

"A portion of our 32+ year old siding was blown off during recent windy days. We really appreciate how friendly and quickly this company came out and replaced the section that was destroyed.”

"32 years ago this company installed siding on my house and it still looks great! Needed a small repair and with a phone call and a quick response repair was done. Thanks again for a job well done!”

- Sandy R.
Johnson County Siding & Window Co.
"The lap siding on the front of our home was failing so we decided to replace it all with James Hardie fiber cement siding. We knew this would be a job that needed to be handled correctly. We were apprehensive about hiring someone to handle what we knew would be a huge undertaking and were very pleased with the way this company performed. We would definitely recommend them.”
