Wolverine Vinyl Siding
The Wolverine vinyl siding line consist of a variety of styles, including beaded, flat, Dutch lap, and clapboard in a variety of sizes, colors, and finishes, including authentic wood grain. Despite the unique features and different price ranges, all models feature StudFinder and StudNailing technology, RigidForm for enhanced stability, and the DuraLock or GripLock systems for easy, one-person installations because of its larger than ordinary locks so panels snap securely together for fast, secure installation. The StudFinder installation system is unique because no other siding offers an engineered installation guide on every panel, guaranteed to facilitate speedy, precise, and assured installation. By centering indicator letters under each nail slot, StudFinder makes locating studs a cinch. Secure fastening to studs not only improves siding performance but also eliminates the hazards of inadvertently hitting electrical wiring, plumbing, or mechanical systems concealed in the wall space with an errant nail. StudFinder is featured on all traditional CertainTeed sidings and has been tested to be up to twenty-five percent faster to install than any other vinyl siding. Certainteed's Wolverine line includes:
