Siding: Fast and easy shingles
These prefabricated panels can be installed four times faster than individual shingles, according to the manufacturer.
Between the shingles and the plywood is a fiberglass laminate, which serves as a breathable, vapor barrier. Panels are available in 4, 5 or 7-inch exposures, and in regular or decorator styles. Shingles can be prefinished in a variety of colors.
