When you think of shake siding, you’re probably thinking of cedar. Cedar lends a natural charm and beauty to practically any home exterior. However, natural wood siding comes with its own set of drawbacks too, starting with the fact that it’s a high-maintenance material. Thankfully, DaVinci has provided a better option. DaVinci polymer hand-split shakes deliver all the beauty of real cedar, without all the same ongoing maintenance needs. In fact, DaVinci polymer synthetic siding outperforms wood siding in essentially every category!
Vinyl siding has become one of the most widely-produced and widely-installed siding solutions, not just in the U.S., but in the world. Vinyl is known for being a generally durable, low-maintenance product. Even so, DaVinci’s new line of synthetic shakes carries some distinct advantages over ordinary vinyl.
Both vinyl and polymer are types of plastic. Vinyl siding is made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), while DaVinci polymer siding is made from 100% virgin polypropylene resins. What’s the difference? Here are a few points to note:
DaVinci is proud to say that their Hand-Split Shake Siding serves to expand the legacy of beauty … because what’s behind the beauty is genius. What’s so great about DaVinci polymer siding? Quite a bit!
DaVinci siding is modeled from actual hand-split wood shakes. The result? It gives your home exterior the beauty of real cedar, without all the accompanying maintenance. With DaVinci, you can achieve your aesthetic goals with a product that performs better than wood.
DaVinci shakes are made of pure virgin resins, which are fortified with state-of-the-art UV stabilizers. In terms of color longevity, you really can’t beat it. As DaVinci likes to say, the color you pick is the color you keep – for life!
Rotting, curling, cupping, and splitting are all issues with “real” wood shakes. But with DaVinci, none of those issues are even a possibility. DaVinci Hand-Split Shakes are practically immune to weathering, and they never need painting either.
While the positive attributes of real cedar tend to fade and disappear over time, DaVinci polymer siding tiles are engineered to deliver reliable resistance to everything, including water absorption & penetration, mold, algae, fire, pests, impact, even salt air. That kind of performance is really hard to beat in a siding product, especially one that also happens to be beautiful!
Some siding product manufacturer warranties are simply better than others. Looking for a siding solution that can really last you a lifetime? You’ve found it in DaVinci! DaVinci Hand-Split Shakes come with an impressive 50-year warranty against breakage and deterioration under normal weather and usage conditions.
Why choose DaVinci Hand-Split Shakes over natural wood shakes? DaVinci offers the superior performance of engineered polymer craftsmanship, along with the authentic look of natural, hand-split cedar shakes.
Here are some features of note with DaVinci polymer siding:

But no matter which siding materials you decide to go with, it’s also incredibly important to choose the right local service provider to make sure your siding gets installed correctly in the first place. Regardless of material or manufacturer, the #1 cause of siding problems down the road is improper installation. A botched installation can cause issues for you long before your siding itself has any material problems!
