        It could very well be that you’ve seen a house with Michon installed siding and assumed it was natural wood. It’s that realistic. You see, a defined texture of natural grain that lends an organic randomness while creating a natural shadowing effect for added dimension and visual appeal.

        CREATING CUSTOM STYLE

        The marks of a mill saw for a rustic feel that plays to the modern-traditional style of the home. Shapes and sizes that add something a little unexpected. Techniques and knowledge passed down from generation to generation. And most of all, a mix of quality and culture resulting in a perfectly unique exterior siding.

        EASY-CARE ELEGANCE THAT’S BUILT TO LAST

        Discover the natural cedar beauty of the Michon expertly installed Architectural Classics Collection. A beauty that does not succumb to the elements. Architectural Shakes, Staggered Shakes, Perfection Shingles, and Scallops are manufactured with man-made material that won’t crack, fade, buckle or rot. 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.

        EXPERTLY CRAFTED FOR ENDURING STYLE

        With Architectural Shakes, Staggered Shakes, Perfection Shingles, and Scallops you can forget about the time and expense of scraping, sanding, staining and painting. Each panel is carefully manufactured with a resilient finish that’s highly weather-able and fade-resistant. The Architectural Shakes line also offers even greater design options with an exciting variety of rich and unique colors featuring an innovative acrylic finishing process.

        ARCHITECTURAL PERFECTION SHINGLE

        Originally referred to as the “seaside style,” cedar shingled homes first lined the cobblestone streets of Boston in the 1800’s. ARCHITECTURAL PERFECTION SHINGLES have a naturally textured surface and edge. Our proprietary process recreates the appearance of natural weathering to achieve a beautifully organic appearance. ARCHITECTURAL STAGGERED SHAKES echo the rustic charm of another time. With intricate detail, the “staggered” bottom edges replicate the craftsmanship of early settlers in the Eastern and Northern U.S. seaboards. For drama or distinction, nothing matches the versatility or creative possibilities of ARCHITECTURAL SCALLOPS. Architectural Scallops are ideally suited for gables, dormers and other accent areas.

        Add the perfect finishing touch to your Architectural Classics siding with our beautiful collection of color-matched trim and accessories. Together, these exterior design elements will give your home a “pulled together” look that truly sets it apart. The distinction is in the details. The color, trim and accents you select can have a dramatic effect on the appearance of your home. Classic lineals around the windows  or doorway, extra detail on the corner posts, a crisp band of trim along the roofline – it’s the little things that give a home personality and style.
