Strength and Beauty in an Exterior Product
For decades, APA Rated Siding products have been lending strength and beauty to contemporary residential and light commercial buildings. APA Rated Siding panels and lap siding are structural products produced with known and reliable strength and stiffness properties. Siding panels can be applied direct to studs or over sheathing.
A Variety of Styles
APA 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.
The APA Mark of Quality
APA trademarks appear only on products manufactured by APA member mills. The mark signifies that panel quality is subject to verification through APA audit– a procedure designed to assure manufacture in conformance with APA performance standards or the standard shown in the mark.
