One choice that works well for homes with a rural feel is vinyl cedar siding. This type of vinyl siding replicates the look of hand hewn or rough sawed cedar shakes or shingles. Cedar siding can be found throughout the U.S. and is especially associated with both the New England seaboard and Pacific Northwest.

Vinyl Cedar Siding Advantages

Vinyl cedar siding offers the traditional look of wood shakes or shingles without the expense and maintenance requirements of real wood. The vinyl cedar shakes or shingles are molded from wood shakes or shingles to reproduce the original wood characteristics. The modern product is manufactured into boards instead of individual pieces for ease of installation. Vinyl cedar shakes or shingles will never need to be painted because the color is molded into the boards during production.

Vinyl cedar siding has many other advantages. It is more durable than wood siding, adds visual interest to the home, and will not be harmed by insects. Vinyl shake siding is also hypoallergenic, as allergy inducing mold or mildew will not grow on vinyl siding.
