CertainTeed Expands Color Palette for Wolverine® Encore™ Vinyl Siding Line

Wolverine® Encore™ vinyl siding now includes a new Cypress color, a warm, neutral hue that complements popular home styles and natural surroundings. The new offering rounds out a palette of 13 low-gloss colors and equips building professionals with more options to help homeowners enhance the exterior of their homes.

“Wolverine Encore siding is attractive, easy to maintain, and surprisingly economical,” says Brian Kirn, marketing manager for CertainTeed’s Siding Products Group. “The addition of a new color option that aligns with current exterior design trends further reinforces these benefits.”

Wolverine Encore siding is available in four popular styles and features a natural woodgrain finish. The product is virtually maintenance-free, never needs to be painted, and is backed by a lifetime limited warranty. Wolverine Encore features patented STUDfinder™ technology for the accurate locating of studs and offers superior fire resistance, with a Class 1(A) fire rating. In addition, its wind-resistant rolled-over nail hem has been tested to withstand wind load pressures up to 135 miles per hour.
