CertainTeed Launches New Ventilation Products, Providing a Single Source for Complete Roof Systems
(Valley Forge, Pa.) – Strengthening its position as a one-stop-shop for complete roof solutions, CertainTeed announces the introduction of seven new roofing ventilation products. Part of the CertainTeed Integrity Roof System®, the new product line includes CertainTeed® Ridge Vent, CertainTeed® Rolled Ridge Vent and CertainTeed® Intake Vent.
“We are extremely excited to introduce our new best-in-class ventilation products,” said Bob Gardiner, vice president of marketing for CertainTeed Roofing. “A quality roofing system features the proper underlayments, shingles, and accessory products along with proper ventilation. Now we can proudly offer roofing contractors and distributors a single source they can trust to stand behind every important system component.”
CertainTeed® Ridge Vent is available in 7, 9 and 12-inches with both filtered and unfiltered options. Each ridge vent is made of high quality co-polymer to remain sturdy, nailable and flexible. Reinforced ribs provide greater stability and rigidity, imprinted slot guides ensure proper slot width, and nail holes and nail lines enable easy, mistake-free installation. The product line also includes a Class A fire-rated vent.
CertainTeed® Rolled Ridge Vent, also available in filtered and unfiltered, is designed for use in roof pitches from 3/12 to 12/12. The product features a unique, virtually invisible profile that installs fast.
CertainTeed® Intake Vent is easily installed on a shingled roof with or without overhangs, and can be used to supplement existing soffit or undereave vents. Internal baffles, drainage system and weather filter provide three levels of weather protection. The intake vent allows air to flow into the attic and helps prevent heat build-up and ice dams.
The new ventilation products feature proven, effective technology for shingle roofs in all climates and come with a lifetime limited warranty and 5-year SureStart™ Protection.
The products are designed with an external baffle to deflect wind and weather over the vent, creating low pressure above the vent to pull air out of the attic. Each vent comes in a black finish to blend with a variety of shingle colors and create a clean, uncluttered roofline. All provide excellent weather protection and prevent premature deterioration of roofing materials by continuously moving air year-round to improve interior comfort.
Products are available on a regional basis. For more information, visit certainteed.com.
