Sherry and Bruce Berman saw the potential beauty in an old New Jersey seaside garage and set out to transform it from the studs up into their dream home. Their extensive makeover spanned 10 months and included a brand new kitchen, plus new bedrooms, bathrooms, outdoor space and last but not least, siding that would stand up to years of ocean salt spray.

High profile, high performance

Sherry and Bruce saw plenty of cedar-sided homes in their new neighborhood, but were worried about all the upkeep it takes to preserve its looks. “We wanted low-maintenance siding that would hold up to salt water,” Sherry said. After learning more about high-performance siding, they chose Celect® Cellular Composite Siding by Royal®.

"With Celect, it’s almost impossible to see the seaming on it. I would definitely recommend it to friends and family."

Seamlessly covered

The Bermans were attracted to and fascinated by Celect’s lock-in-groove system and how it virtually eliminated visible seams in the siding. They were equally drawn to Celect’s lifetime warranty against rotting, splitting, cracking and termite damage and its 25-year color protection guarantee. An interior designer with years of home improvement experience, Sherry would definitely recommend Celect to her clients, friends and family.
