CertainTeed Introduces Shakes and Scallops Profiles to its Vytec Line of Polymer Siding
September, 2009 -- CertainTeed Corporation announces the introduction of three new Shakes & Scallops siding styles to its Vytec® brand of polymer siding. The Shakes & Scallops provide more exterior design options, with the low maintenance and superior strength of an injection-molded composite polymer.
The three new styles include: Single 7-inch Cedar Shakes, Single 9-inch Hand-split Shakes, and Single 6-1/4-inch Scallops. The Single 7-inch Cedar Shakes, complete with mitered corners, feature clean lines for a more refined appearance, reminiscent of East Coast architecture. The Single 9-inch Hand-Split Shakes, also with matching mitered corners, incorporate the look of random panels for a more rugged and rustic style. Offering a Victorian appeal, the Single 6-1/4-inch Scallops are ideal for decorative accents.

"Vytec Shakes & Scallops are designed and formulated to meet or exceed the highest performance standards in the industry," says Phyllis Vail, director of marketing communications for CertainTeed's Siding Products Group. "The new styles provide for easy installation and feature a variety of colors to enhance a home's curb appeal and value. That's style you can build on."
These new Shakes & Scallops styles offer many value-added features to enhance the detail of a home, while also being more durable and aesthetically appealing than ever before. The injection-molded composite material is extra-thick, allowing for greater stability in preventing dents and dings. The unique continuous lock-and-nail-hem design allows panels to be easily installed without the need for a center nail, holding panels snugly and securely against the wall. The deep, detailed grain looks more like real cedar, and the panel projection creates enhanced shadow lines for a distinctive style. Longer, single-course structuring is more natural on the wall and minimizes waste.
Vytec Shakes & Scallops match the existing line of Vytec brand vinyl siding and accessories to help coordinate the home's exterior and are backed by a limited lifetime warranty. For more information, visit vytec.com.
