TOP 10 REASONS WHY CONTRACTORS CHOOSE CERTAPLANK™ SIDING
The charming appearance of hardboard siding. The colorfastness and durability of vinyl. Homeowners love the look of CERTAplank, and here are winning benefits for you as an installer:
1. MEET CUSTOMER DEMAND FOR WOOD LOOK VINYL SIDING WITH A WIDE, FLAT FACE AESTHETIC
There is customer demand for vinyl siding that looks like wood, and you can help fulfill their vision by adding CERTAplank to your product portfolio. CERTAplank features an extra thick panel with a reinforced foam backer that makes the panel rigid to the touch and helps “straighten out” uneven walls.
2. IT FITS ALL STANDARD 3/4" ACCESSORIES
CERTAplank fits all standard 3/4” accessories, including standard new construction window j-channel. The variety of complementary accessory offerings allow you to choose between the speed and flexibility of vinyl accessories or the dimensional accuracy and beauty of cellular PVC.
3. ENGINEERED WITH TIGHT LAPS TO MINIMIZE THE VISIBILITY OF SEAMS
The tight seams on this flat face, single-course panel will give any project a clean, finished look.
4. NO HEALTH HAZARDS FOR INTALLERS
With no respirator needed, and No OSHA/ NIOSH restrictions on cutting, CERTAplank is safe to cut and handle in any environment.
5. LABOR SAVINGS WITH ONE-PERSON INSTALLATION
Each CERTAplank panel is lightweight enough to be installed by one person, and its self-leveling panel design eliminates any need for tools to level the boards.
6. NO ONGOING MAINTENANCE, AND REDUCED CALL BACKS
There is no touch-up, re-painting, re-caulking or re-sealing with CERTAplank, which means no call backs for your business. Plus, the long-term, maintenance-free ownership of this wood look siding is a perfect message to share with your potential customers.
7. NO SPECIAL TOOLS REQUIRED
CERTAplank requires only the basic siding installation tools – there are no special saws, OSHA enforced masks, nail guns, caulk guns, paint or leveling tools to purchase.
8. EASY HANDLING
A durable material face that will not crack or chip when handling, on or off the job. You can easily hand unload all material for the job without any special equipment requirements, and there are no manufacturing-required delays due to inclement weather.
9. SIMPLE & PRECISE INSTALLATION
Installing high-quality siding has never been easier. There is no need to caulk or paint each seam and cut edge, and no need to add butt joints on off-stud seams. CERTAplank is also engineered with built-in tools like STUDfinder™, to ensure that each stud is hit properly, and a self-leveling lock to make certain that each panel is level.
10. DURABLE PERFORMANCE AGAINST MOTHER NATURE
The Secure Lock™ post-formed factory lock, heavy-duty panel thickness, and rolled-over reinforced nail hem each help deliver excellent performance in any weather conditions. Plus, no face nailing is required to exceed the required windload standards.
