APA Rated Siding- Strength and Beauty in a Single Panel
For decades, APA Performance Rated siding products have been lending strength and beauty to contemporary residential and light commercial buildings. A single layer of rack-resistant panel siding delivers an attractive exterior appearance while eliminating the labor and materials cost of installing separate structural sheathing or diagonal wall bracing.
A Variety of Styles
Rated Siding products are manufactured from a number of different species and are available in configurations such as reverse board and batten, T1-11, channel groove and other common finishes. These attractive panels can be stained or painted and offer a cost-effective and attractive exterior for contemporary structures. For more traditional architectural styles, lap siding products are also available.
