Overview: The Foundry Specialty Siding offers the handsome warmth of shake and shingle siding and the inherent charm of stone and brick.
Homes clad in cedar or natural stone have an undeniable attractiveness, but require regular costly upkeep to maintain its original appeal.
To meet today’s environmental challenges, vinyl siding is engineered for sustainability. Benefits of vinyl siding include: low maintenance, increased product life, wind and water resistance, color retention, and impervious to insect damage. Once installed, homeowners will never have to apply environmentally harmful paints or stains.
Foundry siding is crafted from unique molds cast from real cedar and stone to achieve incredible authenticity. Our premium PVC panels present genuine wood graining and the authentic texture of stone with minimal repeat visible on your home.
The Foundry offers a complete selection of shake, shingle, and stone panels in a variety of exposures, with profiles featuring classic fine details or rugged rustic grooves.
Shingles from The Foundry showcase classic style. They provide naturally-textured surfaces that feature the random marks of a mill saw, creating soft dimension that adds appeal to any home. Foundry Shingles are available in 7" exposure.
The Foundry’s Perfection Shingle delivers the perfect balance of the deep texture of Shakes and the clean lines of Shingles. This profile offers a traditional look with a hint of ruggedness. Offered in a 7" exposure, the crisp vertical grains are highlighted, complementing random shingle widths.
Deep texture is the hallmark of our Split Shakes, which offer the look of wood that’s been hand-split by an axe, revealing random grooves and grain. The depth creates captivating contrast between light and shadow to heighten visual appeal. Split Shakes are offered in the popular 7" exposure.
For bold texture, Foundry Staggered Shakes offer a rough-sawn appearance that gives a home a more rustic quality. The staggered butt ends and varied widths provide rich character. This profile is available in popular 7" and 10" exposures that add dramatic attractiveness by enhancing the shakes’ long vertical grain and random keyways.
The Weathered Collection gives a home the authentic appearance of cedar siding that has weathered over time. The Weathered Collection colors are available on the 7" Split Shake, 7" Shingle, 7” and 10” Staggered Shake, and 7” Perfection Shingle style panels.
Created with molds cast from real masonry, The Foundry Stone Collection provides uncompromising detail and warm colors to reflect the authentic, rugged qualities of hand-cut stone and hand-laid brick. To deepen authenticity, we incorporate the use of ceramic microspheres for a subtle grittiness and the stone segment’s truest look and feel.
Stone Collection siding panels are hung just like traditional vinyl siding. The collection comes in our efficient 5' lengths and features our innovative patent-pending locking system. Compared to polypropylene stone siding, our premium vinyl stone has no telltale sheen and can be easily cut with snips. With the Stone Collection, there is significant waste reduction and highly-efficient installation.
Foundry Stone Collection profiles partner beautifully with Foundry Shake and Shingle siding as well as the full spectrum of cladding materials.
Signifying attention to detail, Foundry shapes distinguish a home with exceptional dimension. Whether you choose to accent a gable or create visual interest that extends all the way around your home, the possibilities are endless. Shapes are available in 6" exposure.
