Homeowners Gain More Colors for Custom Curb Appeal as Popular Encore™ Vinyl Siding Line Grows


CertainTeed broadens color palette for vinyl siding to give homeowners more Freedom of Choice® in exterior cladding design

(Valley Forge, Pa.) – Homeowners have more ways to customize curb appeal with the introduction of three new colors to the popular line of Encore™ vinyl siding by CertainTeed. The new hues – Castle Stone, Seagrass and Buckskin – help round out Encore’s collection of 16 low-gloss colors.

The three earthy, neutral tones were introduced as part of CertainTeed’s ongoing effort to provide homeowners variety in beautiful exterior cladding options. The new shades are available for Encore’s Double 4-inch Clapboard, Double 5-inch Clapboard and Double 4 1⁄2-inch Dutchlap profiles, each of which features a natural woodgrain finish. The vinyl siding line also incorporates CertainTeed’s PermaColor™ System, for lifetime fade protection, impact resistance and durability.

“From roof to foundation, homeowners and building professionals want choice. They want a home that reflects their values and personal styles and we work hard to provide them with multiple design options,” said Brian Kirn, senior marketing manager for CertainTeed Siding Products Group. “Introducing more color options to our vinyl siding lines is one way we can give homeowners what they want, and we think they will be pleased with these new earth-tone hues for Encore.”

Built to last, Encore vinyl siding is an attractive, yet affordable line of high-quality vinyl siding. It features RigidForm™ Technology for straighter-on-the-wall appearance and wind-resistance up to 175 mph, and comes with the patented STUDfinder™ technology and DuraLock® locking system for accurate, secure installation.
