(Malvern, Pa.) – CertainTeed has announced an update to its Shingle Applicator Manual (SAM) mobile app that allows a user to display residential roofing installation instructions in Spanish.

The SAM app, currently available for IOS and Android mobile devices, is an excellent on-the-job reference tool. It provides contractors with the official manufacturer installation instructions and reference videos for CertainTeed’s steep slope roofing products — including the popular Landmark® shingle series — as well as information on safety, roof tear off, shingle underlayments and installing shingles on specially shaped roofs.

“By adding this new and important language feature to the SAM app, we provide more roofing contractors with easy access to valuable detailed technical information when they need it most — on the job,” said Jay Butch, director of contractor programs for CertainTeed Roofing.

The app includes both English and Spanish resources, and users can easily change the language version by swiping a button located on the app’s home screen.

Find the SAM app and other useful apps from CertainTeed by searching the Apple App Store and Google Play store for ‘CertainTeed’, or by linking directly to the app by visiting one of the following web addresses:
