Among CertainTeed's vinyl siding products is the Wolverine® brand family of architecturally accurate products. Restoration Smooth™, in particular, has been approved by preservation commissions across the country. Some features offered within the Wolverine® line include the StudFinder™ and StudNailing™ technologies, RigidForm™ for enhanced stability, and the DuraLock™ or GripLock™ systems for easy, one- person installations. Depending on the individual product, Wolverine® siding is offered in beaded or flat, Dutchlap or clapboard options in a variety of sizes, colors, and finishes, including authentic woodgrain.
The Wolverine® brand includes CertainTeed's innovative CedarBoards™ Insulated Siding, which increases a home's R-value by 22% and can help reduce energy bills by 20%. CedarBoards™ Insulated Siding also helps block exterior sound. With its StudFinder™ and DuraLock™ technology, CedarBoards™ Insulated Siding is not only easy to install, but it can also withstand hurricane force winds up to 180 mph. CedarBoards™ is five times more impact resistance than traditional vinyl siding.
CertainTeed's polymer shake and shingle products, like its vinyl siding, are also virtually maintenance free they never need painting. Several product lines, such as Cedar Impressions® and Northwoods™, feature the TrueTexture™ finish (molded from real cedar shingles) for the most natural and realistic look possible without using actual wood.
CertainTeed's shake and shingle products come in a number of styles, such as straight-edge or staggered shingles and rough-split shakes, half-round shingles, and hand-split shakes, all available in different widths and sizes. The CertainTeed brand also includes the Mongram™ and Hamilton Park® siding lines, and the 8-inch-wide vertical panels of Board and Batten for the Early American look.
CertainTeed offers two cement fiber products, WeatherBoards™ and ColorMax™. ColorMax™ is a prefinished siding that comes in 16 designer colors and offers the advantages of factory-applied color optimization. The color is applied over a proprietary sealant/primer called FiberTect® that is 85% more effective at moisture protection than other primers. ColorMax™ siding comes in cedar lap, straight- edged, and staggered edge options.
WeatherBoards™ offers an authentic woodgrain and is one of the strongest fiber cement products on the market. It's also 5% lighter because it's made with fly ash rather than silica. WeatherBoards™ also uses FiberTect® for superior moisture protection, and offers 13 factory-applied prefinish top coat color choices or 6 natural and woodgrain stains. WeatherBoards™ offers a variety of shape and lap options such as octagons, half rounds, random square staggered edges, smooth beaded, cedar lap, and textured Dutchlap. WeatherBoards™ also comes in vertical panels in stucco, cedar, and smooth finishes.
CertainTeed's siding products are all environmentally responsible. The vinyl and polymer siding is made from recycled materials, some up to 80%. CertainTeed's vinyl siding creates a building envelope that results in lower energy use, as vinyl and polymer siding conduct neither heat nor cold. CertainTeed's CedarBoards™ insulated siding even increases the R-value by 5.0 points, earning it an EnergyStar® rating.
The fiber cement siding is composed of fly ash, which is a byproduct of coal combustion, and wood fiber from sustainably-managed forests. CertainTeed's fiber cement siding contains 30% pre-consumer recycled material, which means it earns LEED credits in two categories. The company also recycles the water it uses during production, and most of its raw materials originate within 500 miles of their plants.
In addition to its siding assortment, CertainTeed also offers soffits, trim, and other
