Vertical Siding is definitely one of the most significant products offered by NuCedar Mills. It can be used as an accent or for cladding throughout the exterior of a home. The three styles, or exposures, help you tailor your siding to the architectural style you desire for your historic or rustic home. Whether you choose a Board & Batten, Channel Rustic, or Shiplap profile, your NuCedar siding will prove to be a low-maintenance, durable option.

Impervious to water and able to be run direct to grade without potential for decay, rotting, or any coating concerns, this siding is truly one of a kind. The interlocking features of Shiplap and Channel Rustic profiles utilize tongue-and-groove joinery for a water-tight installation that, along with the strength of cellular PVC, promotes durability over the lifetime of your home. With a warranty against peeling, cracking, or chipping, you really can’t go wrong.
