Long Fence and Home® Recognized by CertainTeed® as Top Roofing Contractor

Washington, DC area-based pros bring peace of mind and added protection to homeowners


(Malvern, Pa.) – By virtue of its commitment to providing homeowners with top-notch service and extended warranty protection, Long Fence and Home® (Long Roofing®) of Beltsville, MD has been recognized by CertainTeed Corporation as a roofing contractor that homeowners can trust.

“Replacing a roof is a major undertaking,” said Jay Butch, director of contractor programs for CertainTeed. “One of the biggest concerns homeowners have is finding a contractor that they have confidence in to do quality work.”

Long Roofing is credentialed as a CertainTeed SELECTTM ShingleMaster, a hard-earned designation that only two percent of all contractors in North America attain—and a credential that shows homeowners that Long Roofing is committed to quality installation, professionalism and ethical business practices.

As a SELECTTM ShingleMaster, Long Roofing is able to offer its customers CertainTeed SureStartTM Plus, the industry’s most comprehensive extended warranty program. SureStart Plus extends and expands CertainTeed’s standard product warranty coverage in the unlikely event of a manufacturing product defect.

CertainTeed is recognizing the top 20 companies throughout North America for going above and beyond to protect consumers interests and Long Roofing is the number one roofing contractor in North America in usage of these extended warranties for their customers.

“We’ve had a long history in the greater Washington, DC area as a contractor that people can rely on,” said John DePaola, principal of Long Fence and Home. “We’re very proud to work with manufacturers like CertainTeed who continue to offer us quality products, credential programs and homeowner benefit programs that ultimately help us put the best and most reliable roofs on peoples’ homes.”

Long Roofing’s practice has brought a 70+ year legacy of professionalism and craftsmanship to the greater Mid-Atlantic region of the country. The company has made it a point to not only offer up incredible service to the community, but also warranties that can help homeowners sleep easier at night.

“Long Roofing is one of those contractors in the country that exceeds the norms and ensures their clients receive top-notch service,” said Butch. “They’re exceptional in the industry and should be applauded for their commitment to placing the customer first.”
