siding for the real american landscape
american styling, workmanship and practicality.

You are an original. Now, your home can reflect that true American spirit with 4 styles in 16 colors of American Original Shake & Scallop Siding. American Original gives you an authentic American sensibility with the natural appearance of real wood; traditional American styling that’s rugged and rustic or clean and classic; high-performance American workmanship that combines technical knowledge with aesthetic appeal; together with American practicality in materials and configuration.

American Original makes stronger, longer single-course polymer panels that are easier to install and eliminate the need for repeat patterns that make ordinary double panels so difficult. UV inhibitors protect against sunlight to keep your colors looking like their original shade longer than ever.

Mix and match your choice of polypropylene shake, shingle and scallop siding styles to achieve a distinctive multi-finish design perfect for today’s latest home exterior trends, or combine with fiber cement, stone, brick or conventional vinyl siding to make a more personal visual statement.
