If you’ve been wondering if there’s a siding that offers the strength of fiberglass and the beauty of wood, then meet composite boards and shingles! Even stronger than fiber cement, composite siding is flexible, resilient, strong, and beautiful. Composite material is made of a synthetic blend that makes it immune to rot, mold, or decay, which is ideal for homeowners who want low-maintenance options.
CertainTeed’s ICON™ Siding line offers you a variety of attractive options to protect properties from cold, heat, and other damage from the outdoors. Also, this product’s material has been rigorously tested to prove its unbelievable resistance to moisture and expansion. To help you decide on if this is the right product for you,Let’s take a deeper dive into the incredible value of installing ICON siding.
The New Standard in Siding
Get the beauty of authentic cedar planks and the durability that goes beyond that of natural wood and fiber cement boards. Icon Siding has it all: the performance to withstand harsh conditions and incredible longevity under good care. ICON™ is one of CertainTeed’s newest products that offers unmatched speed and ease of installation, which makes quality upgrades simple and fast. Easy to handle and portable, there are fewer man hours required to install this product to perfection. Here are its revolutionary features:
- It’s easy to handle: One-person can carry and install the siding, which minimizes the amount of installers on a job and the time it takes to finish.
- Easy to cut: A single installer can cut several planks at once.
- Resilient yet not too rigid: It has enough “give” to fit in tight spaces without cracking.
- Stack lock design: This allows the boards to self align without clips, which allows just one person to overlap and fasten the siding in fewer steps.
- Treated Joints: This results in minimal expansion and contraction. Joints can also be butted tightly together and do not require flashing or caulking.
- Easy Nailing: CertainTeed’s patented STUDfinder system provides a precise fastening placement guide that improves the speed of installation by ensuring correct nail position the first time.
- No fancy equipment required: ICON siding can be installed using standard woodworking tools and blades because it can be easily scored and snapped. Other siding may require expensive blades that dull quickly — costing you time and money.
- Many attractive looks: ICON siding comes in many texture varieties, including the TrueTexture™ finish that looks just like wood. These factory-primed planks come ready to be painted in virtually any color. Just choose your favorite high-grade, non-oil-based exterior brand paint.
- Incredibly strong: This product is made to withstand hurricane-force winds and freezing weather.
- Pest and rot-free: Unlike wood, ICON composite siding is impervious to insects and damage related to moisture build-up, like rot and mildew.
While other siding typically requires two-person handling and installation, ICON makes it possible for contractors to work solo with the same results. Designed with real-life scenarios and practicality in mind, this is the siding that you want if you want to keep the installation on schedule no matter the circumstances.
