Popular Siding Profiles: A Quick Guide

Are you looking to give your home’s exterior a fresh, updated look? Choosing the right siding profile can make all the difference. The correct siding will not only enhance your home’s curb appeal, but it can also offer protection from the elements.

Popular Siding Profiles: A Quick Guide

Read on as Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. discusses various siding profiles available—from traditional horizontal panels to eye-catching vertical patterns.


This siding profile adds a classic touch to a home’s exterior. Popular options include lap siding, Dutch lap siding and bevel siding. Lap siding features long horizontal planks overlapping slightly. In contrast, Dutch lap siding has a decorative groove cut along the top edge of each plank. Bevel siding features thin planks that are thicker on one edge than the other, creating a slight wedge shape that allows for easy water runoff and a textured look. 


Vertical siding profiles can create a unique and eye-catching look for a home. Board and batten siding is a rustic profile that adds a striking aesthetic and provides excellent weather protection. Tongue and groove siding features interlocking vertical boards that offer a smooth, uniform appearance. It is relatively easy to install and gives good weather protection. 

Shake and Shingle 

Shake and shingle siding profiles are timeless and are often seen in traditional, coastal-style homes. Cedar shake siding is made from split cedar logs, giving it a rustic, natural appearance. Vinyl shake siding mimics the appearance of natural wood shakes but with low maintenance requirements. Fiber cement shingle siding offers the look of wood shakes with increased durability and resistance to rot, insects and fire. It may be more expensive than vinyl shake siding but requires less maintenance over time.

I just wanna give a shout out to one of your guys who jumped out of vehicle to help me push my van out from 62 onto coker Butte this morning awesome job and thank you so much..

No hassles, no stress roofing contractor.

We've worked with a number of contractors over the years doing home improvement projects and I can say that, without question, working with Pressure Point was about as easy as it gets.

Everything about the project, from sales all the way to final inspection, went like clockwork and without a hitch.  They delivered more than they promised, on time and within budget.   We could not have been happier with their personnel, products and services.  Highly recommended!

I've changed my review from a 1 star to a 4 stars. Matt Stone got right on a pretty poor job done installing a skylight. He had his guys remove the skylight, move it, repair the roof and inside ceiling to its original state, paint it, repair some external trim that was damaged, and all within a few days after talking to him about the multiple problems. It was really an eyesore from the inside. I'd give a 5 star if this had been done well the first time. The skylight just didn't fit the space I first wanted it and was told it would. More communication about the potential problems might have allowed this to be done right the first time. But, Pressure Point Roofing gets 5 starts for making amends and correcting a pretty ugly problem, very fast! Thank you.

I needed someone to come out to take a look at a leaky roof. I contacted Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. and they came out the same day. They gave me a quote to fix the problem and I agreed to their terms. It was about 4PM and I knew they closed at 5PM but they stayed and fixed the leak at no additional cost. I was very happy and impressed. Would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Pressure Point Roofing for earning our families trust. Will definitely be doing business with you again.

Wouldn't be good if I didn't think the best of my own company right?!

Matt Stone

Excellent experience, prompt and professional estimate, showed up on schedule (actually a day early) and did a thorough and complete job. All personnel were professional,polite and great at their jobs. Would recommend to anyone.

I am so happy I chose Pressure Point to replace my 40-year-old roof.  The crew was professional, efficient, and answered all my questions, addressed the few concerns I raised, and made me feel comfortable, trusting them with such a big project.  I couldn't be happier with their work and the look of my new roof.
