Transform Curb Appeal With Alside's® New Black Vinyl Soffit

New color expansion in select vinyl soffit product lines helps builders and remodelers differentiate homes among the sea of sameness

Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, July 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Sometimes the easiest transformation for a home's exterior is by adding contrast and color. Now, builders and remodelers no longer have to imagine the effect a refreshed exterior has on curb appeal with Alside's launch of black to the Charter Oak® and D5 Punched Vinyl Soffit lines.

The products are an attractive, low-maintenance option for porch ceilings, overhangs or focal points where you want to create high-impact appeal. It's the obvious choice for adding quality and distinction to a home. Charter Oak features the following benefits:

  • Charter Oak is five times more rigid than leading competitive soffit panels, according to independent testing, thanks to the exclusive TriBeam® System, providing unsurpassed panel rigidity and superior wind resistance.
  • It spans uneven surfaces while resisting sagging over long runs.
  • For eaves, aeration openings hidden inside the panel's grooves provide the air flow needed to reduce heat and humidity build-up in attics.

"We are pleased with our on-trend black color expansion for the Charter Oak and D5 Punched Vinyl Soffit," said Shawn Hardy, senior vice president and general manager of integrated products, Associated Materials. "The new black color used as an accent in soffit applications mixes well with existing vinyl siding standard and architectural colors. It also provides countless options to achieve unique color schemes to better serve new construction and remodeling customers."

In addition, the new Charter Oak and D5 Punched Vinyl Soffit offers a Lifetime Transferable Warranty.

This color expansion coincides with Alside's seven new siding, soffit, trim and accessory colors as part of the Explorer Collection. Inspired by nature, these deep saturated hues, cool neutrals and bold shades will transform the appearance of any home. The new colors include on-trend grays, blue, red, green and timeless browns.

The Explorer Collection is available in full or in part on the following lines: Prodigy®, Charter Oak®, Odyssey Plus®, Coventry®, Conquest®, Board & Batten® and Williamsport® and comes with a Lifetime Limited Warranty. Like all Alside exterior building products, this collection provides builders and remodelers wide design flexibility with the added benefits of ease of installation and trouble-free maintenance.
