Vinyl siding has many benefits. It is usually more cost-effective than wood siding. It can be installed quickly, needs little maintenance (periodic cleaning with a soap solution), and resists wood-boring pests such as termites, carpenter bees and woodpeckers. Since its introduction to the building trade in the 1950s, the vinyl siding industry has grown through advances in chemistry, manufacturing, and installation techniques that have yielded a product that is engineered for weather resistance including UV damage resistance, and has an aesthetic appeal that echos wood siding. CertainTeed’s siding options are sure to include the right fit for your house. Among their portfolio:
- Shake and Shingle Siding – Cedar Impressions® polymer siding looks like traditional cedar. It is available in Sawmill finish, Cedar grain, and Wood grain. Nine styles are available, with over 40 color choices including blended color for the look of stained cedar.

You can mix and match styles to create your own look – product styles and colors blend well with each other, and CertainTeed’s exclusive PermaColor TM color technology assures true colors that resist fading. Some products are created with an exclusive polymer capstock that allows darker colors not usually found in vinyl siding. Board molds are based on natural cedar to achieve an authentic appearance. Accessories and trim work are thoughtfully designed to be functional yet highlight the visual appeal of CertainTeed siding. The siding includes features such as molded perimeter locks and weep holes that make installation easy and extend performance. Perhaps even better, CertainTeed’s American-made products have one of the best fire ratings in the vinyl siding market and provide a limited lifetime warranty. And, CertainTeed is a socially conscious company that believes in investing in the community.
