Types of Siding We Install
Vinyl siding is a durable form of plastic engineered from polyvinyl chloride resin and has become one of the most popular options for homeowners in New Jersey since its introduction in the 1950s. Victory's siding contractors install four types of vinyl siding: clapboard, Dutch lap, beaded seam, and board and batten.
Clapboard vinyl siding is where long narrow boards or panels are nailed horizontally across the house. This is a common style that dates to the colonies on the East coast and is actually the most popular style of vinyl siding sold today. Each overlapping panel is shaped like a wedge that gets thinner at the top and wider at the bottom. This style also provides a line of shadow which in return will add to your home’s profile.
Beaded siding is characterized by having a distinct “V” groove that runs along the bottom of each board. This design creates a shadow line between the face of the board and the rounded bead. This type of vinyl siding is great for classic architecture and upscale homes, as the low gloss brushed finish looks similar to freshly painted wood. This great style will give any home a clean and polished look that we can provide.
Dutch lap vinyl siding is a style of siding that creates overlapping horizontal rows, with a slight curve that runs along the top edge of the panel. It is made to resemble hand-carved wood siding. Back in the day, Dutch lap was considered to be premium siding, as it took skill and time to carve and create the groove along the edge. Today it is easy to achieve the same style and appearance with vinyl siding.
This is a type of vinyl siding that offers a rustic yet modern appearance. There are wide planks with a thin strip that overlaps panel seams. This siding is installed vertically and replicates centuries-old wooden board and batten siding. Many consumers enjoy this style of siding, as since the panels are vertically installed, it visually increases the height of the house. Our vinyl siding contractors can install this style horizontally as well, which is great for homeowners who want a different aesthetic.
