A thriving American tradition… Revolutionary design, business integrity, product quality
In 2008, Ferriot introduced a proprietary injection molding product to the building industry: American Original Shake & Scallop Siding.
With the resurgence of American cedar shake styling and demand for new home cladding options, Ferriot engineers saw an opportunity to use their injection molding expertise and ingenuity to create a best-in-class polymer siding product.
Smarty Built and Truly Original
American Original Building Products LLC (AOBP) was born with the intention of creating the natural look of classic, cedar shake shingles in a smartly built product that is easy to install and requires little to no maintenance. Made of polypropylene, AOBP shake panels outperform similar vinyl cladding products. Using years of injection molding mastery, the company succeeded in creating realistic shake textures in easy to install panels. American Original Building Products focused on color matching quality and installation features to create a premium product with four shake profiles… truly an original.
For the stocking distributor, American Original Building Products offers 16 standard shades and four shake styles. In 2020, we are also introducing EverWeathered traditional shake, our new color collection offering the rich hues of naturally aged siding.
