For more than 100 years, CertainTeed® has delivered exceptional building products and service to roofing contractors. Further exemplifying its focus on service, the company has launched “Joe Knows,” a new video series created to educate contractors on the installation and benefits of low-slope commercial roofing.

The CertainTeed Contractor Support Network is deeply committed to listening to and responding to the needs of its customers, and the new video series is one of many elements designed to provide contractors with the tools they need to more effectively and efficiently install CertainTeed’s roofing products.

Industry veteran and CertainTeed associate, Joe Thompson, hosts the "Joe Knows" series, which launched on the CertainTeed website on Feb. 1. Thompson is a key member of the CertainTeed Commercial Roofing Technical Services team and serves as lead instructor for the Flintlastic® SA commercial roofing installer training courses, which are held throughout the U.S. He is also a member in good standing of The International Institute of Building Enclosure Consultants (IIBEC).
