When the time comes to replace your siding, you want to choose a product that fits your budget but that will also last for many years. Learn why CertainTeed is one of the most trusted companies in the industry.
CertainTeed was founded in 1904 in East Illinois and was originally named General Roofing Manufacturing Company. It was founded by George M. Brown and the name changed to CertainTeed in 1917 based on its slogan “Quality Made Certain, Satisfaction Guaranteed.” Over the years, CertainTeed has shaped the home improvement industry by developing innovative and sustainable products used in home construction.

Some products available from CertainTeed are made of 64 percent recycled content, the highest percentage in the industry.

Color And Style Options
One of the biggest benefits of using CertainTeed siding is that it is available in a wide range of color and style options. In fact, they were the first to introduce darker siding shades. In addition, they were the first to utilize a direct transfer system from real cedar to create a more natural texture. All vinyl siding manufactured by CertainTeed is covered under their PermaColor Lifetime Fade Protection. They also hold certification through the Vinyl Siding Institute’s Certification Program.

Two Cedar Shingle Options
CertainTeed is the only manufacturer to offer two cedar shingle options. Cedar Impressions is created by injecting molded polymer in order to create the look of natural wood and rough-split shakes. Northwoods uses a continuous vacuum-form process to create the look of real cedar shakes. Many say that it is the best-looking vinyl shake on the market today. If you want the look of real cedar shingles on your exterior, CertainTeed is your best option.
CertainTeed can also improve the energy efficiency of your home. Think of it like a blanket for your bed or a cooler sleeve for your drink, both of which keep the heat either in or out, depending on which you need. CertainTeed siding acts the same way. When an NJ siding contractor installs CertainTeed siding, you are taking additional steps to create a safer environment. By saving energy, you reduce your carbon footprint and make the United States less dependent on foreign energy sources. In addition, you will see improvement in your budget as your utility bills will be lower. Your home will be cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter without the need to adjust the thermostat.
STUDFinder Installation System
CertainTeed is the only company that offers the patented STUDFinder installation system. Each panel has an integral installation guide to be sure that the panels are installed properly and securely. All nail slots align with the construction standard of 16” on center along with indicator letters under each nail slot. This makes it much easier to locate studs as the panels are installed. Attaching siding to studs optimizes the performance of the siding and helps the NJ siding contractor avoid driving nails into plumbing, electric, or other mechanical systems. In addition, this system allows the contractor to install CertainTeed 25 percent faster than other brands.
Extensive Trim Options
In addition to siding that has an authentic look, you want trim options that will complement your home as well. CertainTeed offers a wide range of trim options. You can choose from Vinyl Carpentry which has the appearance of real wood, Restoration Millwork which provides a smoother option, or TrueTexture which gives you options that are both traditional and unique.
