HardieShingle® Siding

While shake siding is most often associated with classic Cape Cod-style homes, shingle siding (also referred to as shake siding) adds instant character to any home, anywhere, including our very own Westchester County.

Recently we’ve mixed-in shake-style shingles on homes that would have otherwise gone with long plank siding. They look great; the shakes provide fantastic depth and curb appeal for owners that may otherwise look a bit flat. HardieShingle® Siding is excellent; it gives the look and feel of real cedar shake siding with less maintenance at a much more affordable price point.
