Need Some Advice on Siding Selection
Getting ready to side our home and have two options for the siding we like: Georgia Pacific Cedar Spectrum or Certainteed Cedar Impressions. At first glance, both products follow the same specs (or close to):
Molded polymer w color throughout
GP is a bit cheaper, but we worry about fading and realistic woodgrain finish. The CT Impressions were reviewed by Consumer Reports and given a great grade all the way around but no review of the Georgia Pacific product. O= I cannot find out any info about he Spectrum. I know they offer fewer colors and configurations, but that is OK.
Anyone have any insight they can offer on either product?
Thanks much all.
Google is a good place to start looking for reviews :) The BBB.org comes up first and might be worth checking out.... personally never used either siding.
Google was my first resource and where I found the specs. Unfortunately, a Google search turns up virtually no information on the Georgia Pacific product other than specs. No buyer reviews, no installer recommendations. Lots on the Certainteed, but nothing I can use to compare them.
Google is good for a lot of things but not this. Forget the GP stuff, they are merely resellers, and do not manufacture themselves. Stick with the tried and true CertainTeed - they actually make their own siding and all other products and have been around for over a hundred yrs and will be here when you are long gone ;)
We have a motto in the biz... "Quality Remains Long After Price Is Forgotten".
