There are no product deletions for Trim, Decking, Railing and Fence.

Manufacturing of discontinued vinyl siding products will cease at year-end. Residual inventories will be maintained through March of 2017 so you can complete and convert projects in progress. CertaFlash BA and CertaFlash Flex availability will cease as soon as inventory is depleted.  We understand the complications created by product and color discontinuations and have made every effort to keep these to a minimum in addition to giving you advanced notice. We are already working on exciting new offerings for next year which we look forward to sharing with you later this year. Once again, thank you for your continued support of CertainTeed.


Sincerely,

Deane C. Smith
