Atlantica is the fourth color in the Beach House Shake line, joining Sandcastle (offering the look of natural white cedar); Hatteras (a deep, rich weathered gray); and Pacifica (which looks like fresh western red cedar).
“With the continued popularity of gray shades on home exteriors, we responded to the market demand for a light, soft gray shade that reflects the feel of the Atlantic coast,” says Ralph Bruno, CEO of Derby Building Products. “Beach House Shake’s Atlantica color is an uncompromising option that gives homeowners the look of perfectly silvered cedar, and the best part is that Atlantica goes up looking great and will retain that perfect look without the hassles of ongoing upkeep.”
The manufacturer says the Beach House Shake polymer siding features subtle shading variations, grain textures, and saw-cuts that give the product a realistic look of natural cedar. But unlike natural cedar shingles, “which discolor as soon as they are installed, Beach House Shake will stay looking as beautiful as the day they were installed with little to no upkeep,” the company adds.
Moreover, the polymer product will not rot, decay, crack, or split and is impervious to moisture and insects, Derby says.
“Designed for easy installation, the panelized shake is lightweight and can be installed using just a hammer or nail gun,” the company adds. “And one-person installation allows a contractor to beautify a home quickly, allowing homeowners to enjoy a beautiful exterior in far less time—and less hassle—than natural cedar shingles."
