As a green roofing and siding installation company, P.J. Fitzpatrick takes pride in selling and installing products made by CertainTeed. CertainTeed is one of the most trusted companies in the home improvement business and focuses on the impact their siding and shingles have on the environment. Here are a few reasons why we recommend choosing CertainTeed materials:
When it comes to vinyl siding, polymer siding, and PVC exterior trim, CertainTeed makes all of these products using recyclable materials and using environmentally friendly processes. These materials are also shipped and installed using very little valuable resources and they eliminate the need to paint or caulk (which can impact the environment).
In addition, CertainTeed siding comes in nearly every color, is virtually maintenance-free, and is highly durable, so it will look beautiful for years to come.
CertainTeed shingles are one of the most popular roofing materials in the country. When it comes to the Landmark Premium shingle series, they’re designed to be more durable, more comfortable, and have more color depth than ordinary roofing.
They can also reduce your maintenance costs and are created from fewer materials. CertainTeed shingles are made from smaller trees (which reduces the demand for old growth timber) and are known for being stronger, more consistently made, and often less expensive than plywood.
As a Company
Founded in 1904, CertainTeed has helped shape the home improvement industry “through the responsible development of innovative and sustainable building products.” The company constantly employs the “Life-Cycle Assessment” tool when creating products, which helps determine how environmentally friendly the life-cycle of a product is, from extraction to transportation to manufacturing to installation to recycling.
CertainTeed has also achieved many awards and certifications that make them a go-to company for green building materials. Some achievements include:
CircleGreen Certification – Many CertainTeed products have this certification, which ensures that they comply with sustainability and environmental claims from the manufacturer.
USGCB – CertainTeed is a member of the United States Green Building Council, which developed the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certification.
Millionaires Club – Many of CertainTeed’s facilities meet the stringent criteria for membership to this elusive safety club.
