Crane Performance Siding
Founded in 1947 in Ohio as Crane Plastics, Crane Performance Siding® has more than a half-century of experience producing high-performance vinyl siding. Working with Monsanto in the 1950s, Crane was the first to come up with an extrusion die system for solid vinyl siding, and went on to produce vinyl siding marketed by companies such as Alside, Bendix, Johns-Manville, and CertainTeed. In the 1970s, Crane Plastics decided to produce and market its own proprietary siding.

Crane Performance Siding
Crane is well-known for developing double-clapboard siding and advanced color technology in the 1970s, and introducing the superior durability and performance of Solid Core Siding® products such as CraneBoard® in 1998.
Crane Performance Siding® now offers five distinct brands of vinyl siding for superior protection and lasting beauty: American Dream™, Carolina Sands®, Market Square®, Premium Pointe® 360, and Oracle™. Each features its own unique combination of attributes such as profile edge, thickness, nailing and locking systems, lap type, and degree of wind resistance, available in 9 to 18 colors.
Crane Performance Siding® boasts a full vinyl product line that includes soffits, trim, and a gutter guard system. The firm backs up its products with a Lifetime Warranty, one that it calls the "strongest warranty in the industry." It also differentiates itself by pointing out that while other vinyl siding manufacturers promote their products as 'low maintenance,' Crane siding is 'no maintenance.' No painting, ever that's the Crane promise.
In its Exterior Portfolio family of premium brands, Crane also offers a variety of high-performance finishes and top-quality materials such as CraneBoard®, BellaStone®, and Portsmouth Shake®. The Exterior Portfolio collection also includes complementary accent and roofing products such as BellaStone® Architectural Columns, the handcrafted look of Architectural Essentials™ trim, and the sophisticated appearance of roofing products such as Verona Slate™ and Cordoba Clay™.
Technology innovations such as SmartCORE™ insulation has helped CraneBoard® establish itself as one of the most consistent, best- performing, energy-efficient siding products available. SmartCORE™ is specifically engineered to breathe and keep moisture out. All CraneBoard® products are 240% more impact resistant than fiber cement, and many have R-values that are at least 4 times greater than fiber cement. CraneBoard® products come in 17 colors, reduce noise by up to 45%, and offer Crane's No-Nonsense Life-of-the-Home Warranty.
