Building Professionals Back CertainTeed® Vinyl Siding for 16 Years Running


(Valley Forge, Pa.) – For the 16th consecutive year, building professionals named CertainTeed® vinyl siding the overall brand leader in Builder magazine’s 2012 Brand Use Study. For the past three years, the company’s CedarBoards™ Insulated Siding has also received top rankings in the study, which included the participation of more than 10,000 building professionals.

“CertainTeed has a long-standing reputation in providing high-quality siding products that are available in an industry-leading array of colors, textures, and profiles,” said Ken Warshaw, director of marketing communications for the CertainTeed Siding Products Group. “The Brand Use Study offers a credible resource for exterior cladding solutions, and we are thrilled to have this recognition from the building community for 16 years running.”

Conducted by Readex Research, the study asked building professionals to rank products based on familiarity, frequency of use and overall quality.

With more than 40 different color options, the CertainTeed Vinyl Siding Collection features the industry’s widest selection of textures and styles. The siding offers durability, ease-of-maintenance, and is backed by a lifetime, limited warranty.

Molded from real cedar boards and backed with polystyrene insulation, CedarBoards insulated siding can increase overall thermal performance, helping to reduce heating and cooling costs.
