Vertical siding is also referred to as "panel siding." It is a rectangular shaped siding that is usually nailed to strips of wood which are attached across the wall studs of the home. This siding sometimes requires the installation of wooden strips over the joints (board and batten) or chalking the joints to ensure there is no leaking.
Vertical is typically manufactured in 4 x 8, 4 x 9 or 4 x 10 sizes. It is also never overlapped. Solid vinyl soffit can also be used as vertical siding.
