VALLEY FORGE, Pa. —CertainTeed Corporation has launched a new online tool designed to connect homeowners and contractors. The new “Need an Estimate — Find a Pro” tool provides homeowners with a quick, simple way to find local contractors and secure estimates for exterior home renovation projects. For contractors, the tool leverages homeowner traffic on the CertainTeed website to provide them with inquiries from potential customers. 

“A significant number of homeowners throughout the country visit our website to learn more about CertainTeed building products that will boost the comfort and curb appeal of their home,” said Eric Nilsson, vice president of Corporate Marketing for CertainTeed Corporation. “With the new ‘Need an Estimate — Find a Pro’ tool we’ve created a useful online hub to connect homeowners and contractors.”

To use the tool, homeowners type their name, phone number, email and zip code into the designated fields. From there, the system provides the names and contact information of three local credentialed contractors, with the option to request additional information. Within seconds, the request is sent to the contractor through a sales support tracking program.
