MALVERN, Pa. – A new custom model home by Stewart Construction, Inc. of Burnt Hills, N.Y. recently received seven honors at the 2016 Capital Region Parade of Homes, including “Overall Favorite” and “Best Use of Innovative Materials.” The 2,488 square-foot, three-bedroom colonial style home is one of the first to feature CertainTeed® Cedar Impressions® Individual 5-inch Sawmill Shingle Siding. The polymer shingles feature proprietary CedarLife™ color technology with TrueTexture™ molded textures and patterns, which simulate the look of natural cedar shingles sawn in a lumber mill.
The individual sawmill shingles, installed on the front entryway in Rustic Blend, brought out the charm of the artful and warm exterior design that included a mixture of cladding materials, colors and profiles. CertainTeed Vinyl Carpentry®  trim in Savannah Wicker, MainStreetTM vinyl clapboard siding in Natural Clay and stone completed the coordinated look for undeniable curb appeal.
“We’ve been working with CertainTeed building products for more than five years, and have been impressed by the quality and durability of the exterior materials,” said Heather Stewart, co-owner, Stewart Construction. “Their new single shingle siding has an incredibly realistic look, even up close. By installing it on our model home, we knew it would add that extra ‘wow factor’ that would encourage excitement to open the front door.”
The winning home also received accolades for “Best Kitchen,” “Best Mudroom/Laundry,” “Best Outdoor Living,” “Best Master Bedroom Retreat” and “Best Interior Decorating.”
The annual event, sponsored by the Capital Region Builders & Remodelers Association, showcased 11 new builds throughout the Albany area. The Stewart Construction entry is located at 6 Carriage Run in Saratoga County’s Burnt Hills, West Wind Farms subdivision. With 20 available lots ranging from one to five acres in size, each home is custom-crafted to fit individual lifestyles and budget. West Wind Farms is also a designated conservation subdivision, where great care is taken to preserve the natural ponds and wild areas on the property.
