Federal Way, Wash., March 16, 2016 – Weyerhaeuser Distribution has added factory-finished TruGuard Siding to its distribution centers serving the markets of Phoenix, Ariz. and Boise, Idaho. The prefinished woodgrain siding comes in nine finishes plus 11 additional two-tone colors in the company’s Deeptone Collection.
“We believe the TruGuard Siding line will be positively received by building industry professionals creating and renovating custom homes in mountain and resort area locations,” says David Helmers, vice president for Weyerhaeuser Distribution. “The remarkable grain pattern and array of distinct color options available on TruGuard Siding products sets homes apart.
“Our team at Weyerhaeuser Distribution looks forward to making this product available through our dealer network in the Phoenix and Boise areas so that builders and remodelers have access to this top-quality pre-finished siding.”
TruGuard Siding is manufactured by Northwest Factory Finishes out of Bonner, Mont. and is part of the company’s TruWood® product offerings.
“We consider ourselves very fortunate to partner with Weyerhaeuser Distribution to reach their vast dealer network with our products,” says Britt Fred, president of Northwest Factory Finishes. “Weyerhaeuser has an incredible distribution footprint and a loyal dealer base. We specifically recognize the dynamic potential for business in the Phoenix and Boise markets, and we’re eager to build brand awareness for our products by working with Weyerhaeuser.”
According to Fred, builders and remodelers have discovered that the self-aligning TruGuard Siding system makes installation fast and precise on the jobsite. Matching accessories, which will also be available through Weyerhaeuser Distribution in Boise and Phoenix, eliminate the need for the application of caulk at butt joints.
