With a 3/4" projection and a single beaded panel this is a nice throwback to classic beaded panels. We still do not see many home with this type of siding but when properly designed for and integrated it works well. The color options haven't yet caught up to the rest of Certainteeds vinyl siding line but we have hopes they will soon. It is pretty thick so durability should not be an issue. Overall, it is good if you want this look and not really fair to compare this style with other standard horizontal sidings.


  • Nice architectural design
  • Good thickness at .044
  • Lifetime color warranty
  • Cons

  • Single panel slows installation time
  • Limited colors
