"TOH Top 100" Reveals the Must-Have Innovations of the Year
Wayne, NJ — GAF's Sienna™ Lifetime Designer Shingle was named a 2013 TOH Top 100 Award Winner by This Old House magazine. The third annual "TOH Top 100" features the 100 best new home products of the year. The editors spent months testing to find the most distinct, helpful, and coolest home products in seven categories: Kitchen, Bath, Tools, Building Products, Outdoor Living, Home Tech, and Finishing Touches. Each winning product is also labeled with icons such as Money-Saver, Easy Upgrade, Perfect Solution, Eco-Friendly, Splurge, or Made in the USA. Each magazine section includes picks for the most useful apps in each category.
A complete list of the TOH Top 100 can be found in This Old House and online at www.ThisOldHouse.com/top100.
"What makes the Sienna™ Shingle distinct is its classic profile and ultra-dimensional look," says Leslie Franklin, senior product manager at GAF. "The Sienna™ Shingle has a universal look with wide appeal, providing homeowners with an attractive roofing option for a variety of home styles. As part of GAF's Value Collection offering, the Sienna™ Shingle is affordably priced, making it a viable option for price-conscious -homeowners."
"The 2013 TOH Top 100 is full of products that showcase ingenuity, demonstrate originality, wow us with their functionality, and of course, mark breakthroughs in their categories," says This Old House Editor Scott Omelianuk.
"However, the true test for any item on this list is simple: is it useful and relevant to our readers? We agree that all these new products, in ways large and small, will improve the lives of our readers," Omelianuk adds.
The 2013 list marks the third annual TOH Top 100, including items for people who love houses new or old and are looking for the newest ways to fix them up.
