The Benefits of KWP Vertical Siding

  • When used all over the exterior, vertical board siding can add an illusion of height to a house.
  • To further enhance the look, trim out the siding, windows and doors in a contrasting color. A brooding dark gray shade for your siding paired with crisp white trims and a bold red door. Now there is a showstopper!
  • Vertical siding can also be used to add flair to the lower portion of a home or to highlight architectural points such as the gables. Framing your entryway, bay and bow windows with Vertical siding will further draw the eye to these areas.
  • Select, rich and bold color! Don’t worry if you are more into the neutral shades, we have those as well. See our full list of our siding colors here.
  • Vertical Siding is easier to clean. This is because you do not need to worry about water getting behind the peices.
