New Products Offer Unlimited Design Options that Boost Curb Appeal

(Valley Forge, Pa.) – CertainTeed has updated its industry-leading Vinyl Carpentry® siding accessory collection to provide more home exterior design options that boost curb appeal. Specifically, a 3.5-inch Fluted Corner, available in Colonial White, is a new subtle corner upgrade that adds character to a home with true-to-wood dimensions at a reasonable cost. And the Flexible J-Channel, which is particularly useful around curved windows and ventilation treatments, has an improved design that has been modified to further enhance performance. It is also now being offered in White, Clay, Gray and Beige.

“We know that building professionals need to be equipped with outstanding exterior finishing options to wow their homeowner customers, and the newest updates demonstrate how we continue to challenge ourselves to provide the highest quality and innovative details that make a house a ‘home,’” says Robert Clark, product manager for CertainTeed Siding. “Each accessory is easy to install and adds distinction to windows, doors, corners, gables and frieze boards for a more personalized look.”

The 3.5-inch Fluted Corner is 10 feet long with a ¾-inch pocket that gives a decorative corner option for standard sized home construction or remodeling projects on a tight budget. The new Flexible J-Channel is now offered in the most popular hues, with a more rigid face that provides better aesthetics. Both are virtually maintenance-free, never need painting and are backed by a lifetime-limited warranty. Color-clear-through construction also means scratches won’t show.

CertainTeed offers unsurpassed Freedom of Choice™ through its industry-leading portfolio of roofing, long-lasting polymer, insulated and vinyl siding as well as fence, railing, decking and exterior trim. CertainTeed offers the advantage of using exterior products from a single source that are designed to mix-and-match with each other and feature authentic textures, versatile styles and rich color combinations, for a beautifully coordinated look.
