Bold, solid colors are one of the top home exterior trends in 2019, and CertainTeed’s two most popular shake and shingle siding lines are leading the way: Cedar Impressions® Polymer and Northwoods® Vinyl siding. The new colors extend CertainTeed’s title as the industry color leader, adding to the existing wide palette of on-trend colors and profiles that can be mixed and matched for the ultimate in personalized curb appeal.

Cedar Impressions Individual 5-inch Sawmill Shingles and mitered corners are now available in Colonial White, Natural Clay, Savannah Wicker, Seagrass and Sterling Gray. These are in addition to the innovative Ageless Cedar™ color blends, which capture the appearance of natural Eastern White Cedar and Western Red Cedar at various stages, providing a comprehensive selection of unique random color patterns.

Accessories for Cedar Impressions Single 7-inch Straight Edge Perfection Shingles are now available in a new solid color to best complement the Ageless Cedar, Cedar Blend color. The new Cedar Blend solid color accessories include: outside corner, inside corner, j-channel, undersill trim, cornice mold and bay window corner. The shingles are also offered in Driftwood, Natural and Rustic blends.

“Since we launched the latest Cedar Impressions with Ageless Cedar color blend technology back in 2017, the demand for our authentic cedar shingle look with proprietary color-through blended technology has been overwhelming,” said Brian Kirn, Siding Products senior marketing manager for CertainTeed. “The new additions come in response to many requests for solid colors to mimic the look of painted or dipped shingles that still have that rough sawn lumber texture of real wood.”

The newest profile in the Northwoods’ line, Single 7-inch Straight Edge Perfection Shingle, now also offers three lighter shades in Colonial White, Sandstone Beige and Desert Tan. These new solid colors join the line’s 17 other colors, including Autumn Red, Espresso, Midnight Blue, Seagrass and more.

“As lighter shades are becoming more popular, we responded to the many requests to include them in this product line,” Kirn said. “We look to our customers for feedback and suggestions because it is so important that they have the ability to find the perfect exterior style for every homeowner.”

Offering superior looks and protection from the elements, Cedar Impressions and Northwoods each have limited lifetime warranties. To meet even the toughest code compliance, Northwoods also has a Class A flame spread rating.

The new colors are now available nationwide. For more information about Cedar Impressions and Northwoods shakes and shingles, visit, contact your local CertainTeed distributor or call 800-233-8990.
