Vinyl Siding Styles

Creating the perfect look for your home's exterior isn't only about choosing the right color. The right texture, size, insulation, and scale all matter just as much. Insulated vinyl siding can increase a home's energy efficiency, help with noise reduction, and can be more resistant to dents.

Siding Colors by Shade

Homeowners are often impressed by the extensive range of colors available across vinyl siding styles. You can choose from cool earthtone shades (greens, grays, and whites), warm earthtone shades (browns, oranges, and creams), or a range of attractive blue and red colors for homes with vibrant exteriors.

Siding Styles by Color

Vinyl Siding Styles

Smooth Style vinyl siding has no texture imprinted on its surface, providing an option for homeowners who want a modern, clean look. Smooth style siding also comes in a vast range of colors.

Beaded Seam vinyl siding has a traditional look. One of the most-popular styles, the beaded seam emphasizes clean lines and extensive color options that suit most decors.

The Board & Batten(or barn style) alternates the placement of foot-wide boards and narrower strips in either horizontal or vertical patterns.

Shingles make up a large segment of siding style options. The Straight Edge vinyl shingle style is used for an aligned, uniform appearance. The Staggered-Edge shingle style is a good choice for a rustic, hand-built appearance.
