CertainTeed Residential & Commercial Services

CertainTeed Residential

The quality roofing products of CertainTeed make the company one of the most popular roofing manufacturers in North America. Properly installed roofing helps improve ventilation and airflow within your home. This means you're less likely to have a hot attic, leaky roof or damaged shingles and more likely to have increased energy efficiency.

CertainTeed shingles even come with a special manufacturer's warranty that covers any manufacturing defects, regardless of whether or not those defects affect the roof's performance. Many other manufacturers only cover these defects when it hinders performance or leads to leaks. When it comes to any warranty, it's important to keep in mind that some portions may not be covered if you've gone ahead and done the installation on your own. Before choosing a roofing product, take a careful look at the warranties available to help you decide whether or not you should hire a roofing contractor to perform the installation.

While you're looking at a wide range of commercial roofing options, make sure you're considering CertainTeed. They offer hot asphalt, cold process, torch-welded and self-adhered, low-slope roofing systems, which means you have plenty of high-quality options to consider. If you aren't sure which CertainTeed system will make the best investment for your business, Al's Roofing Supply will help evaluate your needs.

Examining Low-Slope Roofs

The majority of businesses rely on low-slope roofing systems because they present a set of unique challenges not found with other roofing types. Typically, weatherproofing is the main concern for a roof. This is especially important for low-slope roofs because water won't be able to run off the roof as easily.

The membranes installed to protect a building from penetrating water are therefore the most important part of the roofing system. A high-quality commercial roof will have layers of weatherproofing, including the surfacing itself, to ensure everyone and everything stays dry and comfortable.

CertainTeed manufactures three main types of roofing systems, and each one has its own advantages. These are the BUR systems, APP systems and SBS systems. Each system differently utilizes hot asphalt known as bitumen to create a strong and long-lasting roofing system. The system your commercial building needs is determined by many things, but variables often include where a building is located, whether aesthetics are important and how much foot traffic the roof sees.
