Consider Siding that’s Beautiful and Functional

Siding is one of the biggest aesthetic impacts that you can make on a home. While it’s exciting to browse all of your color options, it’s important to stay focused on finding products that are both beautiful and functional. You need an option that can protect your home in the harshest weather while increasing curb appeal, and you’ll find exactly that with UniShield® exterior.

UniShield® siding is the exclusive exterior option at UWD. You’ll find the exterior panels are built to last with heavy-gauge plastic. This outer shield is perfect for protecting your home from the elements and moisture damage, saving you a lot of headache and money from the costs of mold and mildew removal.

Every panel looks handcrafted with lifelike wood grain patterns modeled from real cedar. You’ll get the exact quality you’re looking for with today’s top trending colors, including mystic blue, platinum grey, vintage whicker, and Tuscan grey.

Once you pick your perfect panel color, don’t forget to highlight your home with vinyl architectural details. Vinyl scallops look great highlighting areas of many homes, including Victorians and Cape Cods. You can also top off your home’s look with quality soffit that is perfect for blocking wind-driven rain.

When your new exterior is ready, don’t try installation as a DIY approach. New siding installation is an intricate process that should be handled by the pros at UWD.
