Siding is one of the most vital aspects of your home exterior. It’s not only responsible for the overall appearance and aesthetics of your house, but it also protects your home’s exterior from damage due to exposure and the elements.

Vertical Siding

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?

Curb Appeal

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.

Enhanced Protection

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.

Maintenance

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!

What Our Siding Customers Are Saying

  • Project: Install or Replace Vinyl Siding

    From the salespeople and the project manager to the labors, everybody was very professional and went above what was expected of them. They showed up when they said they would be here, did the job they said they would do, on time and on budget. They could only finish three quarters of the the house because we had to have some insurance work done on one wall that took about a week. They cleaned up just like the job was done, and when the other contractors were finished with the last wall I called Pro's project manager ( Justin) and he had people here within two days to finish the job. The contractors I had here to work on the last wall commented several times on how nice the siding job was. They even wanted their business card to use them in their siding jobs. Even the city inspector was very much impressed. They did a great job, and when they were finished, you couldn't tell they were ever here. The cleanup was that good. I had two very small issues and when I called Justin he was out the next day and took care of them. I would highly recommend this company. I just wish all the contractors that you do business with in your life could be this good. When you get one like this its hard not to brag on them. This company will be in business for a lone time. Thank you very much Pro!
