CertainTeed enters into Metal Roofing Market with Presidio™ Roofing Product Line


High performance metal roofing collection combines old-world form with new-world function

(Valley Forge, Pa.) – Strength and elegance are beautifully combined in the new Presidio™ line of metal roofing products from CertainTeed. Incomparably engineered to provide durability and statement-making authenticity, Presidio beautifully replicates the appearance of slate, clay tile and wood shake roofing, and with less maintenance, cost and worry than traditional materials.

“For our first ever metal roofing collection, we knew we had to hit it out of the ballpark and ensure that wow-factor,” said Bob Gardiner, vice president of marketing for CertainTeed Roofing. “We’re confident that building professionals, contractors and homeowners alike will agree that Presidio is an innovative addition to CertainTeed’s product line that has been built on a tradition of enduring quality and backed by the strongest warranty in the industry.”

Each easy to install Presidio panel has overlaps that conceal the joints and create a seamless appearance. Available in colors such as English Toffee, Nutmeg, Smokey Sage, Speckled Bronze and Terra Cotta, Presidio Tile embodies the same Mediterranean magnetism of traditional clay, but weighs hundreds of pounds less, and at a fraction of the cost. Presidio Shake, available in Ash, Sand Dune and Weathered Wood, are pre-weathered, aged and distressed to recreate the look of wood. Lastly, the Midnight and Artisan colors of Presidio Slate showcase the natural beauty of stone in a lightweight, fully recyclable, energy-efficient material.

Presidio is manufactured with durable, deep draw steel to achieve exceptional weather resistance, solar reflectance and noise reduction. Its fade resistant surface features a patented anti-corrosive coating with cool roof technology that can significantly lower roof temperature, decreasing the amount of heat transferred into a home to reduce overall cooling demand on hot days. Also, in addition to being Class IV impact resistance rated, Presidio can be installed to resist winds up to 130 mph and to achieve a Class A fire rating.

ENERGY STAR® qualified, the sustainable product is manufactured with up to 50 percent recycled material and is 100 percent recyclable when ultimately removed due to renovation or demolition. By producing clean water runoff, lowering energy bills and reducing landfill contributions, Presidio meets both style and sustainability demands and reduces overall carbon footprint.
