Brantford, ON – Influenced by everything from pop culture and fashion to economic conditions, color forecasters look at a broad range of factors when determining short and long-term trends. Ply Gem®, a leading North American exterior building products manufacturer with distribution centre locations across Canada, turns to these forecasts when determining new product selections. As a result, two new vibrant colors – Gunmetal Grey and Regatta Blue – have been introduced to the Mitten® by Ply Gem vinyl siding Sentry® collection. Available through Mitten distribution centres and home improvement retailers nationwide, the Sentry collection now includes 33 colors, offering the largest, most vibrant selection in the industry.

Representing industry-leading durability, weatherability and color retention, the Sentry collection features a cedar-grain texture with a deep silhouette, giving it rich shadowlines and depth, in a long lasting and maintenance-free vinyl profile. Sentry is available in three profile options, including: Double 4” horizontal, Double 4.5” Dutch Lap and Board & Batten vertical siding.

Each color is designed to coordinate with the complete line of Ply Gem Aluminum and Blocks & Vents. As part of Ply Gem’s core offering, vinyl siding is one of 27 product categories in The Designed Exterior by Ply Gem,a complete exterior solution that includes windows, doors, siding, stone veneer, trim, accents, accessories and more.
