CertainTeed® Captures Curb Appeal in New Monogram® Siding Webisode and Music Video

(Valley Forge, Pa.) – The newest webisode of the popular Living Spaces® Exterior Home Makeover series, “Monogram,” shows how CertainTeed® Monogram® 46 vinyl siding—which features an industry-leading color palette—can boost a home's curb appeal.

Through the video, viewers are able to follow the Pohl family of Pewamo, Mich.—the grand prize winner of the 2012 CertainTeed $75,000 Exterior Living Space contest—as they continue along their journey of the transformation of their 112-year-old farmhouse. Previous episodes highlighted the process of installing housewrap, selecting a color palette for the home’s exterior and removing and installing roofing shingles. In addition to the webisode, viewers can enjoy the accompanying music video, “Monogram 46 for Life” with the Pohl’s 2-year-old daughter singing along with her dad about all the great features and benefits of Monogram siding.

Monogram 46 vinyl siding offers the widest low-gloss color selection in the industry with a designer palette of 33 solid colors, eight wood-tone blends and over 40 coordinating trim colors. The product is manufactured with CertainTeed’s TrueTexture™ rough cedar finish molded from real cedar boards — offering the rich look of painted or stained cedar without the expense and heavy maintenance. In addition, each product uses a patented STUDfinder™ and CertiLock™ self-aligning, post-formed positive lock designed for accurate and secure installation. Monogram 46 and 46L are virtually maintenance free, Class 1(A) fire-rated and backed by a lifetime-limited warranty.
