CertainTeed’s New Webisode Tackles Exterior Home Color Selection

(Valley Forge, Pa.) – CertainTeed is launching their fourth webisode in the Living Spaces® Exterior Home Makeover series, “ColorView,” which focuses on selecting the right colors for a home’s exterior.

The Pohl family of Pewamo, Mich. — the grand prize winner of the CertainTeed $75,000 Exterior Living Space contest — begin the process of selecting their home’s color palette by using ColorView™, an online visualization tool found on CertainTeed’s website,  

ColorView allows users to upload a photo of their home to find the perfect color combination and create a complete custom exterior from CertainTeed’s many residential building products, including roofing, vinyl and fiber cement siding, trim, fence, railing and deck. Users who do not want to upload their own photo may instead select a home style from a variety of templates available on the website.

Check out the webisodes at the CertainTeed Living Spaces Facebook page ( or YouTube channel ( Stay tuned for additional webisodes that will air approximately every two weeks.
