Restoration Millwork® Helps Restore Classic Architectural Details in Latest CertainTeed® Webisode, Music Video

(Valley Forge, Pa.) – CertainTeed has unveiled their latest webisode in the Living Spaces® Exterior Home Makeover series along with a music video featuring original new music. The launch of the new videos coincides with the search for the 2013 contest winner at

The webisode shows the step-by-step process of beautifully restoring the classic details of a 112 year-old-farmhouse with Restoration Millwork® exterior trim—which recently received top rankings as building professionals’ favorite products in the Brand Use Study sponsored by Hanley Wood.   

The video features the Pohl family of Pewamo, Mich. — the grand prize winner of the CertainTeed $75,000 Exterior Living Spaces™ contest— as they continue the journey of renovating their home. The Restoration Millwork video shows the benefits of installing low-maintenance exterior trim while still maintaining a wood-like appearance.

In addition, a new CertainTeed music video “Restoration Millwork Can’t You See,” has made its debut on Facebook and YouTube. The up-tempo video conveys the excitement of turning a deteriorating home into a historic masterpiece.  

Restoration Millwork is engineered to look, feel and work like top-grade lumber. Unlike wood, however, it is made with a long-lasting, low-maintenance material that is resistant to rotting, warping, moisture and insects. It can be cut using ordinary woodworking tools and fastened with nails or screws. It is highly resistant to yellowing caused by UV rays, resists freezing during winter months, features a Class A (Class 1) flame spread classification and is backed by a 25-year limited warranty.
