It is about respect. A respect for the natural beauty of cedar. The way its grain and the marks of a mill saw interact with sunlight. How those random patterns give a home its own unique character. How techniques and knowledge hundreds of years old can still bring forth innovations, like an exterior siding never seen before.
Natural beauty that endures
Let us be the first to agree with you, wood siding is beautiful on a home. But it’s a beauty that quickly succumbs to the elements. Cracking, fading, buckling, rotting. It is a look that is expensive and time consuming to maintain.
Craftsman and technology
We love the look of wood. It is the inspiration for this completely proprietary process. With nearly 100 unique molds, taken from actual cedar shake and shingles, each home is individually beautiful. No other manufacturing is as committed to rendering the natural, random beauty of cedar as Window World.
Give your home the environmental and financial benefits of improved energy efficiency with the Fullback Thermal Support. When used Window World’s Architectural Classics Shakes and Scallops, Fullback provides a complete wall system that dramatically improves thermal efficiency, rigidity and durability. Help reduce your energy costs by choosing this patented insulation option.
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 only other way to capture this beauty.
A Faithful Reproduction of Cedar’s natural Grain. Our Shakes bear the rich grain of hand-split cedar. Our Shingles, the random marks of a mill saw. And on all our claddings, the texture is carried through on the bottom edge of each shingle – an honest rough-sawn look. The level of authenticity is only possible with our proprietary process. What you won’t see are seams. Even when you know just where to look, they’re difficult to find. All this makes Window World’s Architectural Classics the most realistic siding anywhere.
The past meets the present. Architectural Staggered Shakes echo the rustic charm of another time. Their uneven pattern and the rough-sawn look of their edges make them appear handcrafted. And they are. But not by a carpenter in a musty barn, but by our artisan mold makers.
Scallops that mix and match for distinction and style. Even if you don’t own a Victorian or a Queen Anne, Architectural Scallops afford you the opportunity to bring style and originality to your home. Challenge your imagination with the possibilities. They come in a broad palette of colors, many of which simply are not available anywhere else.
Trimworks® accessories are made with the same quality and attention to detail. Many trims and accessories are insulated inside to make the energy efficiency and durability of your siding complete. For example, our beaded and fluted corner posts feature insulated backing inside to add rigidity, insulation, and 300% greater impact resistance. Small animals, birds, and insects can’t nest in these corners. Plus, soffit, trim, accessories, rainware, gutter coil, fascia and trim coil are matched to your siding, thanks to the ColorConnect® Color Matching System.
Many Color Choices
Look at your home, look at its surroundings. Then look at the color choices listed in the Siding Design Studio under Shakes. With many colors to choose from, you’ll quickly find one that gives your home the special emphasis you want to create. All provide a low-gloss, easy-care finish. And all are color-coordinated with Window World’s full range of trim and accessory products.
