CertainTeed Corporation Announces Distribution Appointment of Goodfellow, Inc. for Cedar Impressions® Polymer Shake, Monogram® and Encore™ Vinyl Siding

(Valley Forge, Pa.) – CertainTeed Corporation is pleased to announce a new distribution appointment of Goodfellow Inc., for its Cedar Impressions® polymer shake, Monogram® and  Encore™ vinyl siding. The appointment will service Goodfellow customers in Quebec through its three distribution centers located in Ottawa, Delson and Quebec City.

“We are very excited about the expanded partnership with Goodfellow, which makes our quality siding product lines much more accessible to the Canadian construction and remodeling industry,” said Jake Clegg, national sales manager for CertainTeed Siding Products Group in Canada.

The additional siding products expand upon the large Quebec-based distributor’s CertainTeed offerings, which also include WeatherBoards™ fiber cement siding, Restoration Millwork® cellular PVC trim and CertainTeed® asphalt roofing shingles.

“CertainTeed is a market leader that recognizes the importance of distributing products through a respected, local building materials specialist,” said Jean Nadeau, siding division manager for Goodfellow. “CertainTeed also shares our commitment to color selection and is the only manufacturer to offer fiber cement, vinyl and polymer shake siding — making it easy to match colors across product lines.”

The expanded distribution appointment applies to the Cedar Impressions polymer shake, Monogram and Encore vinyl siding product lines that combine exceptional performance and curb appeal. All products are virtually maintenance-free, backed by a lifetime-limited warranty and boast a Class A (Class 1) flame spread rating.

Featuring dozens of designer low-gloss colors, Cedar Impressions offers consistent quality and enhanced panel thickness to withstand strong winds and harsh weather, combining an authentic TrueTexture™ wood grain molded from real cedar shingles with low maintenance. 

Monogram also offers the rich look of natural cedar without the expense and heavy maintenance. The line has the widest natural color palette in the industry — featuring more than 40 siding and trim colors in regular size or longer length double Clapboard or double Dutchlap styles.

Encore is a high quality woodgrain panel that is attractive, easy to maintain and economical. It is available in 13 low-gloss colors and four popular styles, including double and triple Clapboard, as well as double Dutchlap.

“Both CertainTeed and Goodfellow have more than a century of construction industry experience,” said Mark Rayfield, president of the CertainTeed Siding Products Group. “We know Goodfellow will continue to provide the promised inventory and exceptional service that building professionals have come to expect from both businesses.”

As the North American leader in siding products, CertainTeed offers Freedom of Choice™ that no other manufacturer can provide, with the most comprehensive spectrum of profiles and colors of polymer shakes, fiber cement siding, insulated siding, vinyl siding and trim for finishing touches. The company actively pursues strategies to reduce environmental impact and is the first siding manufacturer to issue and publish third-party validated life cycle assessments (LCA) for its vinyl and fiber cement siding product lines. The LCA carefully examines all environmental impacts—from raw materials and manufacturing, to transportation and use, to disposal and/or recycling—gaining an accurate view of true product sustainability.
