Three New, Distinctive Colors of CertainTeed® Bufftech® Chesterfield Privacy Fence Offer Design Flexibility, Contribute to Whole Yard Approach

(Valley Forge, Pa.) — CertainTeed introduces three new multi-chromatic blend colors to its Bufftech® Chesterfield with CertaGrain® vinyl privacy fence that bring together an industry-only combination of woodgrain texture and variegated color. Featuring exclusive ColorLast™ fade protection, the new colors are: Brazilian Blend, a rich reddish blend; Frontier Blend, a neutral light brown shade; and Honey Blend, a natural stained wood look.

“The new colors complement the wide range of fence styles offered through the Bufftech product line, paving the way for a cohesive whole yard approach,” said Doug Mucher, marketing manager for CertainTeed’s Fence, Railing and Deck business. “While a picket fence can add to the curb appeal in the front of a home, a privacy fence might be more desirable for outdoor living spaces in the backyard. Through coordination of the color palettes for all of our Bufftech fence products, homeowners can have a seamless, streamlined design.”

With the addition of these three new blends the Bufftech line now features four solid colors and seven multi-chromatic blend colors that, together with CertainTeed’s distinctive CertaGrain texture, constitute the most realistic wood-emulating vinyl fence on the market today.

“With even more natural colors to choose from, CertainTeed strengthens its position as the industry standard for authentic wood-emulating fence and the brand of choice for those looking to design truly personalized outdoor living spaces,” added Mucher.  “CertainTeed has a long-standing reputation as the color leader for exterior siding, which has helped propel the strategic development of our fence offerings. We truly offer a one-stop-shop for limitless exterior design opportunities.”

Chesterfield with CertaGrain privacy fence features a tongue-and-groove picket design and is available in 4-, 5- and 6-foot heights. Manufactured from premium quality polyvinyl chloride (PVC), the product offers exceptional durability and will not rot, warp, split or splinter. It includes a steel-reinforced bottom rail for a stronger, more rigid fence that resists sagging and bowing, and is available in CertainTeed’s exclusive WindZone™ design for exceptional performance in high-wind conditions.

Additionally, Chesterfield with CertaGrain is backed by CertainTeed’s outstanding lifetime limited warranty coverage with SureStart™ parts and labor protection and a newly added transferability feature.
