Expanded CertainTeed® Bufftech® Fence Color Selection Enables Beautifully Coordinated Exterior Living Spaces

(Valley Forge, Pa.) - CertainTeed is expanding color options for its line of Bufftech® vinyl fence, enabling beautiful, sustainable exterior living spaces. The new colors—Canyon Blend and Timber Blend—are popular options from the company’s vinyl siding, offering a single source from which to mix and match various exterior building products for a coordinated look.

“Bufftech fence offers an attractive, long-lasting alternative to wood fence, and an industry-leading array of styles, colors and textures, which equates to endless opportunities to boost curb appeal,” said Doug Mucher, marketing manager for CertainTeed’s Fence, Railing and Deck business. “The new colors keep our offering fresh and on-trend and are designed to perfectly complement a home’s siding, trim, decking and other exterior elements.”

Canyon Blend is a light, neutral color that offers a variation to traditional tan or beige, and Timber Blend is a darker, earthy tone balancing grey and tan. The new colors expand the designer fence color options to 13, which include nine multi-chromatic blends that capture the essence of stained wood.

Several Bufftech products feature the company’s proprietary CertaGrain® and Select Cedar™ textures, which deliver the most authentic woodgrain available and replicate both the look and feel of true wood craftsmanship. Also, Bufftech CertaStucco™ textured fence provides a cutting-edge alternative to traditional stucco walls in a beautiful low-maintenance design.

All of the dark colors in the Bufftech fence product line are backed with ColorLast™ fade protection, a state-of-the-art acrylic formulation that provides superior protection from the sun’s rays. In addition, every Bufftech product includes a lifetime limited transferable warranty, including SureStart™ protection, an exclusive benefit that covers warranted repair and replacement costs, including labor, for five years after installation. The line is also backed by Windzone™ performance and is engineered for use in high wind and hurricane conditions, meets ASTM requirements and complies with local codes for swimming pool applications.

Made from high recycled content, Bufftech fence is GreenCircle Certified® for environmental performance and is manufactured with a commitment to sustainability. It requires no painting, staining or chemical treatment, and is designed to last much longer than wood fence, meaning it won’t need to be replaced as often.

CertainTeed offers unsurpassed Freedom of Choice™ through its industry-leading portfolio of 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. As the result of a strong commitment to environmental responsibility, CertainTeed is the first manufacturer to issue and publish third-party validated life cycle assessments (LCA) for its vinyl and trim product lines.
