Timeless Beauty

The solid wood look and feel of ICON Composite Siding is unmistakable. This distinctive character is created through its wide flat face and squared edges—and is complemented beautifully with a Select Cedar TrueTexture finish emulating real wood. Its 16′ plank lengths produce a more beautiful finish by creating fewer seams than standard length planks. Each plank is secured with hidden fasteners, which eliminates visible nail heads.

Plank Lengths
