Scituate Ma: Latest in Windows, Doors & Siding

By: Craig H. Guido, CS

As professional Remodelers it is so important that we take the time out of the office and job site to stay on top of the latest products and industry news. So our Production Manager Mark Caruso and I recently took a trip to the Harvey Building Products Trade Expo at Gillette Stadium to see what is new for 2012.

Annually Harvey’s holds the Northeast’s largest building and remodeling trade shows designed for people in the building trade. Through demonstrations and vendor displays, these trade shows help build sales skills and productivity, informing you of the latest
products and installation techniques in the marketplace today.

Mark and I came away with a lot of  good information that will certainly help Almar and the clients that we work with. We got the latest updates on Harvey Windows & Sunrooms, Therma TruDoors, and many more products. But one new product really peaked our interest.  Almar installs a lot of Certaineed Vinyl Siding, including their CedarImpressions. According to Certainteed’s website Cedar Impressions provides homeowners with “all the charm of cedar without the high cost and maintenance…”

But there is now a product available to those clients whose budgets might need an additional option as well. The Foundry Vinyl Siding by the Tapco Group might be an option to consider.

According to their website; “Its limited lifetime warranty and enhanced color
protection mean your home’s charm can stand up to unrelenting sun, serious
rainy seasons, frigid winters and blizzards…Foundry premium siding is crafted from hundreds of real cedar and stone molds, providing nature’s exact texture.

The industry’s most comprehensive color palette elevates a full range of
architectural styles, from Craftsman to Cape Cod and Victorian. Explore The
Foundry to envision your dream exterior.”

Foundry siding offers options in: Shingles, Shakes, Stone, and Shapes.

            Shakes: Deep texture is the hallmark of Foundry Cedar Shake siding. With the look of hand-split cedar, its random grooves and grain demonstrate extraordinary authenticity.

            Shingles: Shingles from The Foundry showcase classic style. They provide naturally-textured surfaces and sophisticated detail.

             Stone Collection: Created with molds cast from real stone, Foundry Stone Collection Siding provides uncompromising detail and vibrant color that reflect the authentic, rugged qualities of hand-cut limestone.

            Shapes: Signifying attention to detail, Foundry shapes distinguish a home with exceptional dimension.

You can visit their website ( for Virtual Remodel where you can upload a photo of your own home and see how new vinyl siding can enhance you homes curb appeal.
