The Farnsworth Group, a leading market research company, completed the most recent study. It emailed a survey to Builder magazine print subscribers. Farnsworth researchers received 2,299 responses. The margin of error was plus or minus two percentage points at a 95-percent confidence level. In the vinyl siding category, Certainteed scored a clean sweep.
Researchers asked builders and contractors to identify their preferred building materials in four categories:
- Brand familiarity
- Brand used most in the past two years
- Brand used most overall
- Highest quality brand
In fact, contractors responding to the Builder magazine survey chose Certainteed vinyl siding over all competing products in each of the last 20 years.
Advantages of Certainteed Vinyl Siding
There are numerous reasons for Certainteed's reputation among industry professionals. The brand's wide selection of vinyl siding styles and colors is unparalleled in the industry. Also, all vinyl siding products from Certainteed are covered by its Permacolor Lifetime Fade Protection Plan.
Certainteed's Monogram product line is the leading premium vinyl siding on the market. It is an ideal choice for Montgomery County homes across a wide range of architectural styles. Monogram premium siding offers these important attributes:
- TrueTexture features a rough cedar finish molded from actual cedar boards
- Heavy-duty .046-inch thickness provides superior impact resistance
- Patented Studfinder installation system results in up to 25 percent faster installation, thereby reducing costs
- Trademarked RigidForm construction - panels are tested to withstand 220 mph wind load pressures
- Self-aligning CertiLock system for precise installation. Nails go into studs rather than wall cavities housing wires and plumbing
- Virtually maintenance-free - never needs painting
- Class 1(A) fire rating
Monogram siding is available in 33 low-gloss solid colors and 8 low-gloss blended wood-tones. Forty coordinating trim colors ensure homeowners the look they want. The color is molded right into the product, so scratches hardly show. Scratches in painted or stained surfaces may reveal primer or raw wood underneath. Also, Certainteed includes a lifetime limited warranty with its Monogram vinyl siding.
Cedar Impressions is an industry-leading type of cedar shingle siding. It is made of an injection-molded polymer that truly replicates the look of natural cedar. Certainteed's Northwoods vinyl cedar-look shake uses a continuous vacuum-form process to create perhaps the best-looking shake on the market.
Certainteed's vinyl siding products score well in terms of sustainability. For example, a Cedarboards double six-inch panel contains 64 percent recycled materials, the highest recycled content of any vinyl siding on the market. As a result, this product line qualifies for LEED-NC, LEED-H and NGBS green building credits.
Cedarboards vinyl siding offers aesthetics and energy savings as well. It successfully replicates the look of wide board wood siding, so it provides durability without sacrificing looks. Also, Cedarboards is an insulated vinyl siding product that enhances the thermal protection of the entire wall. As a result, it is often possible to cut your heating and cooling costs by choosing this type of siding.
