As a custom or production builder, you know that one of the best ways to sell homes is to include high-quality selections from well-known brands. Many customers are loyal to brands that they know and trust, and homeowners especially want to make sure that they’re getting the absolute best selections for their new homes. After all, they’ll be living with them for years.
If you’re hoping to furnish your homes with on-trend brands that your consumers care about, here are some of our customers’ favorites.
Kitchen and Bath Brands
Our top recommendation for kitchen and bath building/remodeling is Cambria®.
When it comes to countertops, Cambria® is a household name. Cambria® is a leader in natural stone countertops and does a lot of work to ensure they maintain that status (have you seen their film, The Legend of Cambria®?!).
If you’re looking to stay on top of new home trends in kitchens and bathrooms, know that Cambria®’s white and cool gold marbled counters are in. You’ll also find consumers looking for opulent, elegant surfaces for dramatic waterfall countertops in influencer-inspired kitchens. Cambria® surfaces are also making an appearance as luxurious, low maintenance, one-of-a-kind walk-in shower walls.
Door and Window Brands
Our top recommendations for door and window brands are Andersen™ Windows & Doors and Therma-Tru® Doors.
Andersen™ Windows & Doors
A company that needs no introduction, Andersen™ Windows & Doors has been around for more than 100 years. They’re well-known by builders, and homeowners are catching on, too. Andersen is always at the forefront of energy-efficient window technology, including being named an Energy Star Partner of the Year for Sustained Excellence in 2023. As consumers trend towards green and energy-efficient brands they can trust — with great performance and strong guarantees — Andersen™ will continue to be a sought-after manufacturer for your customers’ windows and doors.
Therma-Tru® Exterior Doors
Therma-Tru® brought the very first fiberglass front door to market and has been on the cutting edge of exterior doors ever since. Your customers probably know Therma-Tru® from their popular DoorWays app, which allows homeowners to design an ideal home entrance. If you have clients looking for stately, attention-grabbing entryways, Therma-Tru® should be your first stop.
Roofing and Siding Brands
Our top recommendation for roofing and siding is GAF. Plus, we’d be remiss to mention our very own Standard Zeeland Roofing & Siding line.
GAF Timberline Shingles & Roofing Supplies
GAF is part of the largest roofing businesses in the world, and for good reason: their Timberline® Lifetime Architectural Roofing Shingles are the #1 selling shingle in North America. These premium, high-performing laminate shingles create a gorgeous, multidimensional look that will give the exteriors of your customer’s homes the aesthetic je ne sais quoi they’re looking for.
Standard Zeeland Roofing and Siding
Maybe your clients aren’t asking for Standard Zeeland Roofing and Siding products… yet. This partnership between Zeeland Lumber & Supply and Standard Lumber & Supply allows us to offer unparalleled products from the top home improvement brands, like GAF, as mentioned above, but also:
- CertainTeed® — a leading home improvement brand for exterior and interior building products (especially siding and roofing)

- James Hardie — the world’s leading brand in fiber cement siding, with an exclusive product line created with Joanna Gaines and Magnolia Homes.

Our top recommendation for decking is Trex®.
Eco-friendly products are trending, and for the client who’s looking for an environmentally friendly yet luxurious outdoor space, Trex® decking can’t be beaten. Composite decking has long been edging out traditional wood decking, and with Trex®’s exceptional track record and warranty coverage, many consumers are seeing the value of this big-name brand.
Trex® guarantees their product against a number of problems typically seen in traditional wood decks, and they’ve got an eco-friendly seal to boot. With a wide array of color and style options and an exceptionally low maintenance care plan, your customers are definitely looking for Trex® for their decks and patios.
