New DaVinci Hand-Split Shake Siding

Hand-Split Siding graniteDaVinci Hand-Split Shake Siding: Can’t get enough of our composite shake tiles? Here’s the good news: we now offer shake siding!

Available in eight colors, DaVinci Hand-Split Shake Siding has similar features to our roofing products. Each piece resists impact, fire, mold, algae, insects, salt air and high winds. And, while they’ll look as attractive as real cedar, they won’t curl, cup or split like real cedar.

Each tile in our siding line is 18” tall with a 5/8-inch thickness. And, the tiles come in 8” or 10” widths. The 10” wide pieces have a simulated keyway. This gives the look of 4” and 6” wide shakes placed together to provide a multi-width appearance.


Composite Slate Roofing Options

From coast to coast, homeowners have discovered it’s easy to get the look of real slate with composite slate roofing. Forget about the high costs, heavy weight of slate and long-term maintenance hassles. DaVinci composite siding provides you with three affordable slate options.MWSL_European_7.31
