FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Four Beautiful Blended Colors Added to Bufftech® Chesterfield CertaGrain® Texture Privacy Fence with Lattice Accent

CertainTeed is the first vinyl fence manufacturer to offer realistic stained wood shades in a privacy fence with lattice accents

(Malvern, Pa.) – Realistic textures that replicate wood grain and stucco. A broad palette of rich, natural earth tone colors with ColorLast® fade protection. Superior performance that meets the highest standards for durability and safety. These are some of the hallmarks of the industry-leading CertainTeed® Bufftech® line of low-maintenance vinyl fence and accessory products.

Chesterfield CertaGrain® with Lattice Accent

Now CertainTeed has expanded the color options available for the Lattice Accent style of Chesterfield CertaGrain® privacy fence. The colors – Weathered Blend, Arctic Blend, Brazilian Blend and Sierra Blend – are popular monochromatic hues that mimic the subtle beauty of stained wood, and make CertainTeed the first vinyl fence manufacturer to offer such colors in a privacy style topped off with an eye-catching lattice pattern.

“Our goal is to continue to offer the homeowner more styles to choose from in order to mix, match and complement other exterior products,” said Doug Mucher, marketing manager for CertainTeed Outdoor Living. “With the natural wood look of our popular blended colors added to our decorative accents, we’re providing even more ways to effortlessly include a personal touch to outdoor living spaces.”

The four blended colors join White and Natural Clay, also available in the Lattice Accent. The three-dimensional, molded lattice features a subtle texture that perfectly complements the finish on the main portion of the fence. The privacy portion of the fence measures 56 inches and the lattice portion 16 inches, for an overall fence height of 72 inches (six feet).

Bufftech Chesterfield CertaGrain fence is available in a four-, five- or six-foot solid privacy barrier with a steel reinforced bottom rail and easy-to-maintain vinyl design. In addition to Lattice Accent, styles include a variety of options that replace the standard squared-off top rail with dynamic architectural shapes including Concave, Convex, S-Curve, Swoop and Victorian Accent.
