By Your Fiderio Expert Aug 9, 2013
As a trusted roofing contractor in Connecticut, we guarantee the best roofing products that will provide many years of reliable protection for your home. Our roofs are built with a high resistance to high winds, heavy snowfall, torrential rains and severe temperature changes. And there’s no better roofing material to do this besides CertainTeed. As a CertainTeed 5-Star Contractor, we can offer you the full range of products and roofing systems for your roof. Their products have gorgeous style, are energy efficient, and come with great warranties.
CertainTeed’s products offer dozens of different profiles, textures and colors so that you can choose a completely unique style for your home. Their Luxury Slate tile mimics the look and feel of natural slate, but is lighter and much less expensive. They also offer the Presidential Shake, the industry’s toughest and thickest shingle that takes on the appearance of cedar wood at half the price. All of their roofing products come in up to 19 different colors and have the most authentic grain and textures for a stunning appearance.
Safety & Durability
Some of CertainTeed’s predicts are non-combustible and have a Class A Flame Spread Rating, meaning that the material has been proven to spread flame the least. Additionally, CertainTeed products ensures moisture resistance, meaning the material is prevents rot and mold damage.
Peace of Mind
Most of CertainTeed’s products are backed by lifetime warranties, with the shortest warranties are 25 years. We recommend asking your contractor for anything from their Luxury or Premium design series, in order to take advantage of the great warranty available.
CertainTeed’s products contain 50% recycled materials, keeping nearly 100,000 tons of discarded materials out of landfills each year. These materials also keep the heating and cooling costs down in your home. The shingles are designed to reflect the sun’s rays and reduce temperatures by 20% in the summer. Their Solaris shingle meets the Energy Star qualifications, meaning you can qualify for tax credits for choosing this material for your roof. Furthermore, CertainTeed’s facilities also recycle water, saving about 2 billion gallons per year.
CertainTeed’s WinterGuard protection is a waterproof shingle underlayment that prevents water from penetrating through your roof and into your home. Made of vapor-tight asphalt and polymers that make the asphalt elastic and stick, the barrier stretches and seals around the nails that keep it in place. Part of the Integrity Roofing System, it is your home’s first line of defense against ice buildup and ice dams.
Roofers’ Select is the final layer of protection for your home. Sitting right above the WinterGuard layer, it’s reinforced with fiberglass and protects the fasteners from wrinkling and tearing out. CertainTeed designed the underlayment for optimum performance for all types of weather conditions and climates.
Architectural Roofing Shingles
CertainTeed’s shingles are highly advanced products with distinctive and dramatic appearance that give your roof a superior three-dimensional appearance. This line of shingles are made of heavy fiberglass and coated in mineral granules embedded in water-resistant asphalt. Some of our favorite kinds are Grand Manor, Carriage House and, as previously mentioned, Presidential Shake and Symphony Slate. These give a higher quality accent to unusual roof shapes like steep planes, turrets and gables.
CertainTeed is also a great manufacturer of vinyl siding, which you can read all about here!
