Shake Siding

Add Rustic Charm With Shake Siding

Embarking on a siding replacement project is an exciting endeavor, and American Way Exteriors is here to guide you along the way. We offer a variety of siding options for you to consider, including shake siding—a timeless and elegant solution that adds natural appeal to any home exterior. Located in Centerville, Ohio, we are a leading shake siding contractor serving homeowners in the Cincinnati and Dayton areas.

The Unmistakable Style of Shake Siding

Shake siding boasts a rich history rooted in traditional architecture and offers a warm and inviting aesthetic. Originating from natural, hand-split cedar shakes, the shake siding style has evolved into a versatile option for modern homes. Its distinctive appearance, characterized by irregular edges and a textured surface, adds rustic charm and is a favorite among homeowners who enjoy a classic look for their home.

Durable Shake Siding Materials

Traditionally made with natural cedar—and, indeed, American Way Exteriors installs cedar shake siding—this style of siding is also available in high-performance and low-maintenance materials. Choose from:

  • Vinyl shake siding – easy to clean and never needs to be painted
  • Fiber cement shake siding – extra resistant to damage from weathering and pests
  • Composite shake siding – mimics the appearance of natural wood but is far more durable
  • Cedar shake siding – a time-honored, traditional favorite

No matter which shake siding option is right for your project, our experts will customize it with your preferred color to create a gorgeous new home exterior.

"Replaced the existing siding on my home. Contact and price were discussed thoroughly during the initial discussions. Workers arrived at the scheduled time and were professional in the removal, new installation, cleanup, and onsite conduct. Communication between supervisors, installers and myself was on a daily basis and any issues were addressed immediately. Would not hesitate to use this company again or recommend them."

"We chose American Way Exteriors to replace our old vinyl siding with Hardie board siding and trim. Throughout the entire process we found the team to be very professional and receptive to our questions about the project. They were constantly in touch with us about when work would start, what to expect each day of the project, and followed up to see if we had concerns. As the project began it was very apparent our house had suffered from poor installation by the builder years ago. The American Way team worked to fix the problems, keeping us well informed along the way. We could not be happier with the finished project both cosmetically and structurally. This is definitely a company we highly recommend exterior projects!"
