A Premier Home Exterior
-Refined style, outstanding performance and a lifetime of protection – that’s the power of Charter Oak Premium Vinyl Siding. Featuring a wide range of architectural colors in the timeless beauty of clapboard and handcrafted old-world charm of dutch lap, Charter Oak makes it easy to achieve custom elegance for your home.
Clapboard is a classic exterior cladding made of horizontally overlapping vinyl siding. Clapboard is a flat design made to resemble long boards stacked on top of each other with a back-angle. While simple, it has always been the most traditional and common types of siding.
The Dutch Lap style is one of the most popular with homeowners among the many different types of siding to choose from. Homeowners prefer Dutch Lap for the attractive look created by the concave face. This creates a bump-out on the surface, which casts shadows over the course below.
The realistic, rich wood grain look of hand-split cedar with rough-sawn texture. Split along the grain, shakes are deeply textured, giving the appearance of cedar that has naturally weathered over the years. Staggered shakes replicate the craftsmanship of the early Eastern and Northern United States who split cedar into planks to help protect their home from weather.
Scallops offer beautiful rows of rounded curves that add character and charm. The shadow lines of scallops adds drama and visual dimension. This specialty siding is best suited for gables, dormers, and other accent areas.
Board & Batten (Vertical Vinyl Siding)
Board and batten siding is laid vertically using two different size boards. The mainboards are typically one foot wide, and the seams between the boards (batten) are covered by skinny board strips. This is a popular style that gives the farmhouse look.
