Mastic Home Exteriors by Ply Gem offers remodelers the complete "exterior solution" with perfectly coordinated products, making it easier for remodelers to move through the product selection stage and finish projects with higher customer satisfaction. Visual design tools such as the Color Advisor app and the Designed Exterior Studio visualizer help remodelers walk customers through the exterior product selection process, resulting in more compelling colors and designs. Our business-building programs help contractors grow their businesses by offering certification as an Elite Contractor or Preferred Contractor, as well as lead generation, consumer financing, cause marketing and marketing plan evaluation tools. What's the next advancement in the siding market? Beautiful, durable, low-main- tenance exterior products like vinyl siding remain at the top of the list for remodeling projects. But with savvy homeowners exploring design possibilities through home design TV shows, Pinterest, Houzz and magazines, one color and material of siding is not enough. Coordinating tra - ditional vinyl siding with shake or shingle siding, stone veneer, shutters, windows and trim is increasingly important. As a result, Ply Gem has expanded select vinyl siding lines to include premium darker colors, along with a cellular PVC trim line, plus stone veneer in 10 profiles and 100 color combinations, all from a single manufacturer.

Vi n y l 's m a i n t e n a n c e - f r e e durability and easy installation have helped make it a leading choice for home siding. With the trend toward bold colors and rich textures, The Foundry offers homeowners dramatic distinction with its authentic cedar-inspired siding presented in the industry's widest color palette. Homeowners drawn to the charm of hand-split cedar siding are treated to rich detail from the line's shakes, shingles and shapes, without the hassle of wood siding's upkeep. There's no splitting, bowing or rotting. There's also no worry about termites, and no scraping, sanding, staining or painting. And, there's no noticeable pattern repetition. It's accomplished with a proprietary manufacturing process that reproduces cedar's natural grain and random patterns with different molds.
