The top 10 videos, as selected by Facebook users, will be in competition for a best overall pick by CertainTeed judges. The winning homeowner will also star in a series of video webisodes featuring their home's remarkable transformation. The nine runner-ups will each receive $500 exterior living spaces prize packages.
The contest is a perfect way to officially introduce the new CertainTeed Living Spaces Facebook page, which offers tips on outdoor living trends, design inspiration, backyard safety, gardening and more. One lucky family will get their turn to be stars in the video webisodes, sharing their vision for their ideal outdoor living space oasis and offering commentary as our 5-Star, Master Remodeler and SELECTShingle Master Contractors complete every phase of the design and installation, making their new outdoor living space a reality.
