CertainTeed Strengthens Industry-Leading Color Palette, Adds New Colors to MainStreet™ and American Legend™ Vinyl Siding

(Valley Forge, Pa.) – CertainTeed has introduced four new colors to MainStreet™, and six new colors to American Legend™ vinyl siding product lines, further strengthening the company’s robust, industry-leading color palette. The new hues can be mixed and matched with several other siding styles and accessories, giving building professionals virtually unlimited Freedom of Choice™ and design options for durable, long-lasting curb appeal.

“As the MainStreet and American Legend vinyl siding lines continued to gain popularity over the years, we listened to customer feedback for more bold, deluxe color options,” says Brian Kirn, product manager for CertainTeed Siding. “Today, homeowners want a unique exterior design for their home, and now it’s easier than ever to coordinate the popular cladding with other styles within the CertainTeed siding product family.”

With the addition of Forest, Seagrass, Charcoal Gray and Autumn Red, MainStreet now boasts 24 total colors. American Legend also adds Forest, Seagrass, Charcoal Gray and Autumn Red, along with Hearthstone and Autumn Yellow, bringing its total to 22 colors.

Available in seven classic styles with signature woodgrain or brushed textures, MainStreet vinyl siding offers consistent quality while standing up to the elements. Its RigidForm™ 160 technology is designed to withstand wind load pressures of up to 160 miles per hour.

Available in three classic styles, American Legend siding offers versatile great looks, with a natural woodgrain appearance and strong performance. In addition, the product features GripLock™, which utilizes larger than average locks for secure, snap-fit installation.

Both MainStreet and American Legend are virtually maintenance-free, never need painting, are Class 1(A) fire-rated for superior fire resistance, and backed by a lifetime limited warranty. In addition, each product features patented STUDfinder™ technology for precise and accurate installation. 

The new hues join an industry-leading spectrum of siding colors ranging from deep, rich shades, and semi-transparent stained blends to popular neutrals. All vinyl siding product lines utilize the PermaColor™ System with guaranteed Lifetime Fade Protection, impact resistance and durability. Moreover, all siding products and accessories are designed to coordinate with CertainTeed roofing, trim, fence, decking and railing options for a coherent, natural look resulting in outstanding curb appeal.

CertainTeed offers unsurpassed Freedom of Choice™ through its industry-leading portfolio of long-lasting polymer, fiber cement, insulated and vinyl siding as well as fence, railing, decking and exterior trim. CertainTeed offers the advantage of using exterior products from a single source that are designed to mix-and-match with each other and feature authentic textures, versatile styles and rich color combinations, for a beautifully coordinated look. As the result of a strong commitment to environmental responsibility, CertainTeed is the first manufacturer to issue and publish third-party validated life cycle assessments (LCA) for its vinyl, fiber cement siding and trim product lines.
