CertainTeed's third generation of signature Cedar Impressions siding

CertainTeed introduces the next generation of its Cedar Impressions siding: Double 7-inch 3G Straight Edge Perfection Shingles and Cedar Impressions accent panels, now offered in new colors and shapes. "For 27 years, the Cedar Impressions family of shakes and shingles has remained a top choice for its exceptional beauty, versatility and long-lasting curb appeal," said Brian Kirn, polymer shakes and shingles product manager for CertainTeed. "Despite the current effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the construction industry, we are committed to maintaining our high standard of quality, while also ensuring the health and safety of partners and employees, as building and remodeling projects cautiously resume across the country."

The 3G profile is engineered to provide superior aesthetics, simplified installation and enhanced performance. New features include slanted, tapered gaps with deeper shadow, high-definition texture and an offset corner to replicate a woven appearance. The new double course panel provides more coverage and requires fewer fasteners than single course siding. Meaning, installers can easily comply with social distancing measures because fewer people are needed per job. They can also spend less time on each job site, and in turn, complete more projects as the industry gets back on its feet.

The new profile also boasts CertainTeed's signature installation features, such as continuous lock, EasyMeasure tape measure, engineered side tabs with lead-in, HammerTapper hammer assist pads, SureStop to prevent hard nailing, hidden drainage holes, friction dots to support the panel, reverse texture backing and the built-in PanelThermometer temperature spacing indicator. Plus, it's hand-snip friendly for easy trimming.

For homeowners, the updates offer innovations to protect and elevate their investment at a time when every dollar counts, including durable, weather-resistant materials and the latest deluxe color and design trends, which can be mixed and matched for a distinctive look that will last for years to come.

Cedar Impressions Double 7-inch 3G Straight Edge Perfection Shingles are made in the U.S., are available nationwide and come with a lifetime limited product warranty.
