Cedar Impressions vinyl siding tries to live up to its name with three styles that replicate real wood shingles. Molded from polypropylene, or vinyl, these shakes won't split, cup, twist or streak.

The shingles come in three styles -- perfection, hand-split and half-round. Perfection and half-round have interlocking tabs to provide invisible laps, are tested to withstand wind load pressures of 180 miles per hour, come in ten colors and have a limited lifetime warranty.

Hand-split shakes come in six popular colors and have a low gloss finish that gives the appearance of hand-split cedar shakes. They installlike vinyl siding, and are solid color -- making surface scratches invisible.
