Gentek Sequoia Select Siding Is Perfect For Your Dream Home Too

GTK_Social_1200x628_NOV03b

If you want to see how great Gentek’s Sequoia Select Ultra-Premium Vinyl Siding could look on your home, check out this rendering of the $900,000 grand prize dream home in the Saint John Regional Hospital Foundation Hospital Home Lottery.

Elegant in Iron Ore, in a Double 4” horizontal profile on the lower level of the beautiful home, Gentek’s Sequoia Select is complimented by Gentek Board & Batten Ultra-Premium Vertical Vinyl Siding in the Storm hue on the upper level.

Sequoia Select’s quiet sophistication is a substantial upgrade from ordinary vinyl siding.  The performance engineering and attention to detail will meet your every expectation for long-term protection, easy upkeep and lasting value.

The Sequoia Select colour palette is rich and warm. Each panel is solid colour throughout, so it won’t chip, flake and blister like painted surfaces.  And unlike wood, it won’t rot and warp due to moisture. Maintenance is a breeze because Sequoia Select never needs to be painted – an occasional rinse with a garden hose and you’re good to go.

If you’re lucky enough to be living in New Brunswick – or willing to move for a dream home – get yourself a lottery ticket. Otherwise, you can check out Sequoia Select at any Gentek location.


Black Is The New White For Trim & Window Colours

Are you looking for something a little different for the exterior trim or window colours of your home?

Right now, dark colours are the biggest trend.  Homeowners are choosing dark greys, dark browns and dark blues for a sophisticated, classy look.

But it might come as a surprise that one of the biggest trends is using black for trim and window colours on your home’s exterior.  In fact, while ‘Orange Is The New Black’ may be one of the hottest shows on television, when it comes to household exteriors, it could be argued that Black is the new White!

Black trim always makes sense for a white house. But people are getting more and more daring, with fantastic results.  Black is being used to trim out homes that are prominently cladded in neutral colours like Gentek’s Pebble or Dark Drift and even Gentek’s Iron Ore and Windswept Smoke.

These colour combinations create a modern, upscale look that many homeowners desire.  You will also see black being used with many lighter, more traditional colours like Dover Grey and of course White.

If you want to make something stand out, black makes a perfect highlight. It works great for windows too, especially if they’re on the larger side. If windows are the eyes of your home, Black makes for a very attractive eyeliner.

Gentek eavestrough, soffit, fascia and windows are all available in Black. Maybe it’s time you took a trip to the dark side, to make the beauty of your home’s exterior really stand out.


Coming Soon: Solar Shield S3 – The Window for Canada’s Climate

Homeowners are looking to find the most energy efficient windows for their home. The solution is on its way, as Gentek prepares to launch its new Solar Shield S3 product on October 1.  This new glass package offers Gentek’s most energy efficient option.

Ultra-efficient performance is achieved through the use of three microscopic layers of silver within the coating of the glass. While many residential windows have only one or two layers, this third silver layer helps reduce absorption of the sun’s heat on hot summer days and retain more of your home’s warmth on cold winter nights.

Some highlights of this exciting new window option:

  • Lower U-factor for reduced heat loss and greater insulation performance in winter
  • Lower Solar Heat Gain Coefficient keeps homes cooler in summer
  • Clear, crisp views – 62% of the sun’s visible light shines through the glass, while 73% of unwanted solar heat is blocked
  • The penetration of harmful UV rays is reduced to 5%, helping to prevent damage to interior woodwork, carpets and furnishings
