Quality products and valuable services are key to CertainTeed’s 100-plus years of success. The company recognizes, however, that much of its good work can be directly attributed to the professionals CertainTeed strives to serve.
“Our achievements in the roofing marketplace are thanks in large part to strong partnerships with contractors and others in the industry who are instrumental to our success as a trusted manufacturer. We consider it our job to provide them with the tools that will ultimately help them build prosperous businesses,” says John Donaldson, president of CertainTeed Roofing.
In fact, CertainTeed takes pride in knowing how contractors do business. First, the job must be sold, then the products are installed, and in the end the job must be profitable.
According to Donaldson, that’s why CertainTeed created the Contractor’s EDGE™ program. “We are committed to helping contractors build a better business - from sales to profits. Through Contractor’s EDGE, we’ve developed the right products and services to help our contractor customers prosper,” he says.
The EDGE program reflects the diversity of contractors’ business needs, with credentials for companies that focus on both selling and installation expertise. The program offers several services, including credential programs, business resources catalog, installation and product knowledge, The Integrity Roof System™, SureStart™ Plus warranties and Roofers Rewards™.
Contractor support services, however, are only as valuable as the quality of the product the roofer is selling and installing. CertainTeed has earned its reputation as a leading manufacturer of low- and steep-slope roofing products for commercial, industrial, institutional and residential roofing applications.
CertainTeed Roofing offers more than 30 different styles of shingles. As the industry leader in color, design and materials technology, CertainTeed offers hundreds of color choices and classic architectural design features.
