Four Distinctive American Original Styles

Each style is unique, each original, but all have the depth of character we expect from a true American. Bold and stalwart, these shake and scallop siding choices express the mosaic of influences that have reached American shores.

American Original panels are different than anything on the market. The stronger, longer single-course composite polymer panels create a natural appearance, eliminating the repeat patterns that are difficult to avoid using typical double-course panels. Choose from four styles ready to mix-and-match, combining the look of wood shake siding, shingle siding and siding scallops. This lineup of profiles is perfectly suited for today’s latest trends in multi-finish exteriors, and combine well with fiber cement, stone, brick and vinyl siding.
