CertainTeed Corporation Now Offering V-Buck(R) Vinyl Blocking System

(Valley Forge, Pennsylvania) – To offer our foundations customers an increasingly broader range of products, CertainTeed Corporation now offers the V-Buck(R) vinyl blocking system, a product manufactured by Vinyl Technologies Inc., (VTI) that helps building professionals simplify the process of creating window cut-outs in poured concrete basement walls.

The V-Buck vinyl blocking system consists of vinyl window blockouts that create window space when foundation walls are poured in both insulated concrete form (ICF) and conventional poured concrete wall construction. Perfect for installing any windows, V-Buck is easy to assemble, installs quickly, helps job sites look cleaner and is available at an installed price equal to wood. V-Buck vinyl is also resistant to corrosion, enabling it to look great many years down the road.

“We are pleased to be working with VTI in a capacity that is sure to benefit both of our companies,” says Steve Gross, Marketing Director, CertainTeed Pipe & Plastics. “The V-Buck vinyl blocking system is an innovative product that goes hand-in-hand with our Form-A-Drain(R) Foundation Drainage System and ThermaEZE(TM) Foundation Insulation System. We look forward to giving building professionals the opportunity to meet many of their foundation construction needs all in one spot.”

This venture provides VTI with additional representation for its products, while reinforcing CertainTeed’s commitment to providing a broader foundations product selection for builders. V-Buck complements the existing CertainTeed(R) foundations product line which consists of Form-A-Drain, which is used to form concrete footings, drain foundations, and vent radon, and the ThermaEZE Foundation Insulation System.

Through innovation and creative product design, CertainTeed has helped shape the building products industry for more than 100 years. Founded in 1904 as General Roofing Company, the firm made its slogan “Quality Made Certain, Satisfaction Guaranteed,” which quickly inspired the name CertainTeed. Today, CertainTeed is North America’s leading brand of exterior and interior building products, including roofi ng, siding, windows, fence, decking, railing, millwork, foundations, pipe, insulation, walls, ceilings and access covers. Headquartered in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, CertainTeed and its affiliates have approximately 9,000 employees and 70 manufacturing facilities throughout the United States and Canada. In 2006 the group had consolidated sales approaching $4 billion.
