Whether it's a classic and rugged cedar, durable and paintable fiber cement and energy-efficient insulated panel, or and economical and maintenance-free choice such as aluminum siding, we are experts at matching you and your budget with the siding that works for you and your home.

For an attractive look combined with energy efficiency, consider insulated siding. Insulated siding has rigid foam insulation fused behind the exterior surface of the siding panel. Because the insulation is contoured to fill the gap between the siding and your home, insulated siding provides maximum energy efficiency, along with durability, low maintenance and lasting beauty
A few types of siding that Shoreline Builders provides:
Cedar shingles look great in natural settings, and if the natural look is important to you, then cedar shakes may be the answer. The shakes or shingles are usually stained in earth tones, browns, or grays. This is a really great look with less upkeep than clapboard that needs painting periodically.
Maintenance Free siding
Vinyl siding is a plastic made from PVC, or polyvinyl chloride. The advantages of never having to worry about rot and flaking paint makes this exterior covering attractive to many consumers. However, with a lower price tag comes problems. Vinyl siding has a tendency to crack, split, and look faded and dingy after a few years. Manufacturers have made improvements on these problems, but they still exist. The environmentally conscious may not want to choose vinyl due to the problems it creates when it is removed - PVCs release toxins when burned, making vinyl not environmentally friendly.
A full range of styles, colors and textures. It is available in 12' length or can be installed seamless.
Wood siding has been used for hundreds of years, and seeing a 300-year-old clapboard house is testimony to the durability of wood when properly maintained. Cedar, pine, spruce, redwood, Cyprus, or Douglas fir are the woods used most often. Pine holds finishes extremely well, giving it added value.
