Their durable finish requires less maintenance than other exterior claddings, which means you’ll spend less time on upkeep and more time enjoying life. Simply rinse occasionally with water from a garden hose to remove most airborne dust and dirt and restore the siding’s fresh-looking appearance.

AGELESS CRAFTSMANSHIP MEETS MODERN TECHNOLOGY

Nearly 100 authentic molds taken from actual cedar shakes and shingles are a true throwback to classic artisan style. The four profiles included in the Architectural Classics Collection represent the most significant architectural patterns from the 20th century.

Thanks to state-of-the-art technology, Michon installed Architectural Classics Collection features a full-length nail hem for easy installation and it is environment-friendly.

VALUE-ADDED ENERGY SAVINGS

Architectural Classics, when used with Fullback® Insulation, can help save energy, reduce utility costs and create a more comfortable home environment. The contoured insulation is custom cut to fit behind the siding, providing a powerful thermal barrier against energy loss and enhancing the siding’s durability and appearance. Adding insulation to the exterior of the home also helps lessen outside noise for a more peaceful interior.

Fullback Siding Insulation can be installed with all 7″ exposure panels from Architectural Classics, including Shake, Staggered Shake, and Perfection Shingle profiles.

A TRUE REPRODUCTION of CEDAR’S NATURAL GRAIN

Give Your Home a Warm and Welcoming Ambiance.

HANDCRAFTED AUTHENTICITY

Shakes have always been esteemed by those who believe a home should be one with its natural setting. Split along the grain, cedar Shakes are deeply textured in a way that sets off an interplay of light and shadow. The sun moves across the sky, and the light changes the house as it does the landscape. Architectural Shakes are the ideal way to capture this beauty.

NATURALLY AGED

Architectural Classics’  Weathered Collection™ Colors capture the essence of time, giving a home the authentic appearance of cedar that has naturally weathered over the years. Our proprietary process achieves this incredible  look by presenting a lighter shade of a color in the grain and a darker one  on the higher points. Premium Colors are available in both Shake and Staggered Shake.

DETAILS THAT MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Architectural Shakes and Staggered Shakes can be used as either an accent or as conventional siding on your entire home. With easy elegance, the artistic detail and superb craftsmanship ensure an upscale appearance that masterfully recreates the natural appeal of handcrafted wood.
