CertainTeed Doubles Down on Innovation, Contractors at the 2017 Western Roofing Expo
Manufacturer to showcase latest asphalt shingle designs, credential programs and more in Las Vegas
(Malvern, Pa.) – CertainTeed, a leading North American manufacturer of building materials, is set to highlight the latest product offerings in the company’s roofing portfolio, along with new contractor credential programs, at the 2017 Western Roofing Expo. All attendees are encouraged to stop by booth #305, June 12-13, at the Paris Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, NV to get an inside look at new shingle and accessory products, line expansions, and valuable contractor programs offered by CertainTeed.
With innovation at the heart of this year’s presence for CertainTeed, the company is poised to feature an array of new products, which include:
Arcadia Shake® – Arcadia Shake shingles offer the most authentic replication of classic shake roofing available today. Four layers of highly-refined asphalt make up these large format shingles which meet the industry’s highest fire resistance rating, while offering longevity and
durability unmatched by real wood shake. Arcadia Shake is available in an array of colors, including solar reflecting options, that will enhance nearly any exterior and provide true curb appeal.
Belmont® – Belmont blends the natural beauty of slate with the state-of-the-art performance characteristics of luxury asphalt roofing, resulting in a high-quality product that is affordable and immediately adds traditional charm to any home. This architectural laminate shingle is available
in six dynamic colors that capture the depth and dimension of natural slate. Belmont is maintenance free, wind and fire resistant, and comes with a lifetime limited warranty, providing homeowners with total peace of mind. Class IV impact resistant versions are available in the central United States.
RoofRunner™ – Rounding out the new product offerings from CertainTeed is RoofRunner, a lightweight and tear-resistant synthetic polymer-based underlayment. Featuring a scrim-reinforced, high traction, water-resistant surface for safe wet/dry walkability, and a large roll size (48” x 250’), contractors will appreciate RoofRunner’s speedy ease of installation. In addition to exceeding the performance requirements of ASTM D226 and D4869, RoofRunner is Class A fire rated and complies with ICC-ES AC188.
“The Western States Roofing Contractors Association always does an incredible job putting the Expo together. The show serves as an incredible vehicle to highlight our continuous commitment to innovation and the roofing community,” said Bob Gardiner, Vice President of Marketing for CertainTeed Roofing. “A setting like this also affords our team the opportunity to highlight the best in curb appeal, performance and value – topics always on the mind for contractors and consumers.”
In addition to the newer products on display, CertainTeed will also feature:
Presidio® Metal Roofing – Shake, Slate and Tile award-winning, hyper-realistic options from Presidio enhance the specific architecture of homes with less maintenance, cost and worry than traditional materials. Made from high-performance deep draw steel, Presidio Metal Roofing is engineered with incomparable durability and designed with statement-making authenticity —providing the look homeowners want and the protection they need.
Metal Credential Program – To support the expansion of metal roofing, CertainTeed will be highlighting their new credential programs. Built in the spirit of CertainTeed’s well-respected programs for asphalt shingle and commercial roofing contractors, the CertainTeed MetalContractor™ and CertainTeed MetalMaster™ credentials are designed to provide pros with tools to enhance application skills, business acumen and in-home selling efforts. Contractors are encouraged to stop by and learn about the different credential requirements and numerous benefits available as part of this exciting new program.
NorthGate® SBS-Modified Asphalt Shingle – Engineered for harsh climates and cold weather, NorthGate’s SBS polymer-modified composition allows it to remain flexible at temperatures as low as 0° F (-18°C) enhancing its weatherability and making it easier to install in cold climates. The two-piece laminated fiberglass-based shingle also meets the requirements of UL 2218 Class 4 for impact resistance – the highest rating possible.
