CertainTeed Review: "Pacific Blue"

Name: Matt Wristbridge
Location: Margate, NJ

Vinyl Siding Satisfaction Rating:
1 of 5 stars Very Unsatisfied

We just got denied by certain teed. They took a piece of our Pacific Blue siding and shipped it to Michigan. Two weeks later they denied our claim even though the siding is more white than blue. The salesman visited our house and said Pacific Blue has been defective in the 2007 time frame and that it was obviously defective. The installer said, "Blue Sucks" as soon as I told him about the problem. He apparently has gotten several calls from other homeowners with regard to Pacific Blue. We told the warranty guy we are going to sue the company if the problem is not corrected under our warranty. He said not to do that just yet. Don't know if this is a delaying tactic. We just bought a double lot that we plan to develop just around the corner from our current home. The siding spec is going to call for, "Not Certainteed".

CertainTeed Review: "Great Vinyl siding, very durable."

Location: Clearwater, FL
Model: Cedar Impressions

Vinyl Siding Satisfaction Rating:
5 of 5 stars Very Satisfied

I own the the cedar impressions vinyl siding from Certainteed. We are very satisfied with the vinyl siding. It has lasted us several years and has many, many years to go. It looks like Real cedar siding but without all the hassle. The only thing you have to do is once in a blue moon go out and clean it with a hose and soap, Or a pressure washer. We live in Florida, and the siding has been through the intense heat, hurricanes, thunderstorms, and one time it even hailed in the winter. It is pretty durable and still looks brand new. It turned my boring house into a house that stood out in the neighborhood. It looks like real wood, and Ive gotten a lot of compliments from friends. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for siding for their house. It is great and is actually pretty cheap

CertainTeed Review: "Wonderful siding for a uniquely satisfying finish on your home."

Location: Salem, Or.
Model: Cedarboards XL

Vinyl Siding Satisfaction Rating:
4 of 5 stars Somewhat Satisfied

I ordered the Cedarboards XL product line of siding when I decided to redo my home roughly 3 and a half years ago. When I got the first shipment, I knew that I was going to be pleased, but I really didn't know what to expect as far as maintaining, repairing, or replacing. The good things definitely have shown through many times since installation, and I love them. It used to be a big hassle to get my pressure washer out, scrub for hours only to hardly notice a difference, and then continue the process every summer. Now, I can come out once a season with a quick handheld squirt bottle, and the dirt literally comes off with ease. I don't know if its just me getting lucky, but it's been very nice having almost no work to do when it comes to the siding. I didn't like the fact that when I ordered it, there were only a couple options, and now that a few years have gone by, new options are popping up right and left, and it's left me wanting a different style, but same brand and model number. I have never worried about replacing it, besides changing the style, and it's backed by a decent warranty. I would probably reccomend this brand to older home-owners, but it's been nice on my property and I would continue purchasing this stuff.

CertainTeed Review: "Vinyl Siding: The State of My Home"

Location: Miami, Fl

Vinyl Siding Satisfaction Rating:
5 of 5 stars Very Satisfied

I have lived in a home with CertainTeed Cedar Impressions Straight Edge Perfection Shingles for just under 4 years, and am thoroughly impressed. The appearance of the shingles is what drew me to the product initially. I live in an area of high humidity in which mildew can be a problem. That being said, I have only had to pressure wash my siding about once a year. This can be compared to my neighbors who must pressure wash three times a year. I had repairs performed to the siding after a hurricane came through my area, and it went well. The contractors installed the siding fairly easily and it looked as though my home had never been damaged. I would certainly recommend this product to a friend. It is durable, easy to maintain, and looks great. I like the way my house looks when I pull into my driveway after work. I'm certainly pleased with the product and glad I spent the extra funds to get a house with this siding.

CertainTeed Review: "My Experience With CedarBoard Vinyl Siding"

Location: Johnstown, PA

Vinyl Siding Satisfaction Rating:
4 of 5 stars Somewhat Satisfied

I purchased and installed this siding last summer and its endured the hot summer and this cold, brutal winter so far and has done so like a champ! I've had no issues with it, it looks fine, and I haven't had to make any adjustments or repairs. I just had to install it and that was it. Installation was a little difficult and took a little longer than the instructions claimed, but I dealt with that. Other than that, this siding has looked great on my home. Even my wife loves it, and I've already recommended it to a few friends.

CertainTeed Review: "Cedar Impressions Love It"

Location: Boston, MA

Vinyl Siding Satisfaction Rating:
5 of 5 stars Very Satisfied

I have had this siding for about 3 years now. It is great. I live in Boston so the weather has been pretty varied and it has stood up to everything. The textured look is great and the color stays incredibly. Besides small areas, it looks like new. The one thing i do not like wasnt really a fault of the company i guess. I could not find an exact match to the color i wanted. It was no big deal though because i just painted the accents of the rest of the house to match and it came out fine. I have had to repair a portion of it once but that was from ball damage, as my neighbor's kids throw around the baseball and our houses are pretty close to one another. The reapir was easy they just replaced a couple slots and it was about 2 years after we installed it. I would defintely recommend this to a friend as well as buy it again when needs to be replaced.

CertainTeed Review: "this isnt a bad brand"

Location: allentown pa

Vinyl Siding Satisfaction Rating:
4 of 5 stars Somewhat Satisfied

I owned my vinyl siding for a little over four and a half years. I like the fact that it comes in many colors. It is easy to clean and maintain. It makes my house look more inviting. I feel it really makes my house more of a home. The only thing I don't like is that they can crack and fade over time. I haven't had to repair anything yet but some friends of mine did and it is not the cheapest thing to do. I'm really not sure if I would buy this product again I would defiantly want to search the market to see what is out there. As far as a friend I would also tell them to check out what is on the market. I would tell them about my experience with my vinyl siding so they could find the product that fits their needs best.

CertainTeed Review: "Dressing Up A Beautiful Home With Vinyl Siding"

Location: Cortland, NY

Vinyl Siding Satisfaction Rating:
5 of 5 stars Very Satisfied

I purchased Certainteed brand vinyl siding this past spring. I selected the Mainstreet line in a color of "sandstone beige" This summer I resided my home, which was built in 1823, and has been covered with ugly yellow-burnt orange fake-brick asphalt siding. I had an enjoyable conversation with my four year old twins about what we were doing to our home. I described the home as a "beautiful lady, who needs new clothes because her old ones are getting ragged and torn." They thought that was really funny, and liked to laugh about how the fan-fold I put on to go under the siding was the house's underwear. I have been so pleased with the way the house looks. I can't think of anything I dislike about this siding. It looks as if the old clapboard siding underneath has been restored to its former beauty. I get compliments constantly! I would definitely recommend this brand to anyone.

CertainTeed Review: "Poor Quality, Good Price"

Location: Mechanicsburg, PA

Vinyl Siding Satisfaction Rating:
2 of 5 stars Somewhat Unsatisfied

Approximately five years ago, I needed to replace the siding on the south side of my house, and couldn't afford an expensive brand of siding, so I chose Ashland Davis Dutch Lap Vinyl Siding. Although the price was about thirty percent lower than the average retail price of vinyl siding, had I the chance to re-do my decision, I probably would have opted for a more expensive siding of better quality. The initial appearance of the Ashland siding, although not superb, was not terrible either. However, within three years, the paint was significantly chipped, and it made my house look as though it were ten years older than it actually was or else had survived Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana by the appearance. I had to repaint the siding, which incurred a significant cost of money and time, both of which could have been avoided had I not been so stingy when picking a brand. I would not recommend this brand of siding unless you really don't mind a dingy appearance after the first couple years, or else enjoy repainting the exterior of your house on a regular basis.

When I was looking for vinyl siding I wanted a dark brown color. I ordered my choice from a different manufacturer than Cetainteed. After receiving the dark color siding I noticed by accident that with a fingernail the color could be scraped off. This would not hold up in Maine with all the sand and salt during winter months. I could not find a dark color in 2002 that didn't scrape off and settled on a lighter color- Certainteed Monogram D/4 rough cedar timber blend. The color is a neutral and I actually like the color, it has wood grain which looks very nice. It goes well with a dark brown garage door and dark green eaves. Most important is that the color does not come off, even since 2002. It has also stayed flat which sometimes vinyl siding buckles. I do wish the siding was a little thicker( I am not sure I had that option at the time).in 2009 after a very hard and icy winter I noticed 4 places where there was a hole in the siding. It could have been caused by ice falling off the roof or from something being thrown from the snowthrower, I don't know. I had extra siding and had it repaired. I would recommend this siding.
