Look of the week: PVC shingles

Yes, PVC. Sounds wrong, we know, but did you see how they look on HGTV's 2013 Dream Home? Exactly like real cedar, from the texture and sheen to the variation in color across the individual shingles. The thing we love most about shingle siding is how each piece takes the stain a little differently, and clearly they've figured that out. Real wood is a great thing, but zero maintenance is certainly something to think about. We are not sure who supplied the shingles for the Dream Home, but found some here if you'd like to learn more.
