Headquartered in Valley Forge, PA, CertainTeed is a leading North American manufacturer of building materials and specializes in the production of high-quality roofing and other materials including vinyl siding, trim, fence, railing, decking, insulation, gypsum, and ceiling products.
Any look – historic to contemporary – can be achieved with today’s vinyl siding. Vinyl siding has the widest variety of style and color offerings of any other exterior siding, including:
- Horizontal and vertical panels
- Shakes, scallops, shingles, fish scales
- Traditional clapboard
- Beaded designs
The ability to withstand high winds (certified up to 110 mph or higher) and a composition that resists heat, cold and moisture, certified vinyl siding retains its great looks over time. Vinyl siding never needs paint. Ever. The only maintenance it will need is a simple wash with a soft cloth and garden hose to keep it looking great.
CertainTeed Vinyl Siding offers the best vinyl siding features and color options, along with exceptional durability and lasting beauty.
– What’s the best way to prove a product will perform as promised? Independent testing. This is why the Vinyl Siding Institute (VSI) established the VSI Product Certification Program.
Administered by Architectural Testing, Inc. of York, PA, the program allows manufacturers to certify with independent, third-party verification that their products meet or exceed the testing requirements specified in the industry standard for quality.
-How many products have passed this Certification Program?
There are nearly 825 products and nearly 325 colors on VSI’s Official List of Certified Products and Colors. In 2012, approximately 18 million squares of vinyl siding were manufactured in the United States. (A square equals 100 square feet of siding, or enough to cover a 10-foot x 10-foot area.) Another key test of quality is how long manufacturers are willing to warrant their products. Warranties offered by vinyl manufacturers typically last a lifetime and can be transferred to the next owner.
