What is Vertical Siding?
As the name suggests, the arrangement of vertical siding is in a vertical (up and down) rather than a horizontal (side to side) pattern.
Styles of Vertical Siding
There are just as many types and varieties of vertical siding as the more traditional horizontal siding, and it’s available in a wide range of colors, materials, and designs.
What is Vertical Siding Used For?
Vertical siding can be used as the primary design feature for the whole home, or as accent elements for certain parts of the house, such as the entryway, gables, and dormers, or porch walls. Many homeowners choose vertical siding as an accent during exterior remodeling projects for its striking appearance.
What Are the Benefits of Vertical Siding?
Among the most common reasons for using vertical siding in a home construction or remodeling project is the dramatic appearance of this exterior wall covering. Because more homes use traditional horizontal siding, houses that feature vertical siding stand out as unique and impressive.
Another benefit to vertical siding is the additional protection it provides. With horizontal siding, precipitation and debris can easily seep into the gaps between panels and underneath the siding strips. Moisture trapped between siding panels and a home can cause mold & mildew growth, warping, and potential water damage. However, with vertical siding rainwater and precipitation are allowed to slide all the way down without penetrating the panels.
Vertical siding is also easier to clean, due to the decreased risk of water penetration. While homes with horizontal siding require care to prevent leaks, vertical siding can be cleaned easily with an ordinary cleaning agent and a pressure washer.
If you’re interested in a striking home exterior that is more durable and easier to clean, vertical siding may be the right choice for you!
