Title

Siding Tiles

Description

The home of Wilbur W. and Hilda E. Seek at 1408 Sixth Street after remodeling. The decorative trim on the roof line and front porch have been removed. The porch was enclosed and windows put in which maintains the openness a porch provides. The wavy edge siding tiles that resemble shingles are possibly a mixture of asbestos and Portland cement which provided durability and fire resistance. These siding tiles were popular from the 1920s through the 1960s.
