CertainTeed Living Spaces Video Wins Telly Award

(Valley Forge, Pa.) – CertainTeed has been chosen as a Bronze winner in the 34th Annual Telly Awards for its “All From CertainTeed” music video, which was produced in conjunction with the 2012 $75,000 Exterior Living Spaces® Home Makeover Contest.

The Telly Awards recognize the finest video productions, such as commercials, films, and cable television programs. A panel of more than 500 accomplished industry professionals served as judges for the competition.

CertainTeed’s award-winning country pop video shares the excitement of the Pohl family from Pewamo, Mich., after winning the home makeover contest. The original song follows Craig and Allison Pohl with their baby daughter as they tell friends and family the fantastic news. It also illustrates the transformation of their 112-year-old farmhouse using CertainTeed exterior products.

“Our team is thrilled to receive national recognition for the ‘All From CertainTeed’ video, which is part of an original webisode series created by CertainTeed,” said Mark Rayfield, president of CertainTeed Siding. “The award truly sets the stage for the next phase of the webisodes, which will highlight the winner of the 2013 Exterior Living Spaces Home Makeover Contest later this year.”

The “All From CertainTeed” video is one of a series of original webisodes and online music videos that document the renovation of the historic home featuring the Pohl family along with a talented team of CertainTeed credentialed contractors. Including other original music videos, the series can be viewed at the CertainTeed Living Spaces Facebook page ( or YouTube channel (
