CertainTeed® Offers Preview Of Popular Metal Roofing Profiles At METALCON
CertainTeed's Matterhorn® collection offers homeowners a variety of styles and colors to choose from.
Malvern, PA – Leading North American building materials manufacturer CertainTeed® showcased its impressive Matterhorn® Metal Roofing collection during METALCON 2018, held at the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, North Carolina in mid-October, offering a preview of what contractors, architects and building owners will soon see in expanded markets nationwide.
CertainTeed’s architectural metal roofing line, which offers the classic looks of shake, slate and barrel tile in a form that is tough, lightweight and 100-percent recyclable, is available in more places that ever, much to the delight of CertainTeed Manager of Residential Product Marketing Dale Walton.
“We’re really excited about what we have to offer this year,” said Walton in the run-up to METALCON. “Matterhorn is quickly gaining market share due to the fact that it is long-lasting, sustainable, and able to be utilized in a variety of settings, including residential, religious, and light-commercial buildings.”
Matterhorn provides customers with the appearance of natural materials, but without the maintenance cost or the risk of algae, moss and wood rot. It also comes with a Class 4 impact resistance rating, a Class A fire rating, and can withstand winds up to 130 MPH—all of which can lower insurance premiums. Plus, at hundreds of pounds less per panel than materials like clay and stone, metal roofing is easier to transport and requires less structural roof support.
Walton also remarked on Matterhorn’s impressive color variety, which includes 16 cool roof colors that can be used to comply with 2016 California Title 24, Part 6, Building Energy Efficiency Standards.
“Americans spend $22 billion a year on air conditioning, mostly to cool their homes during the hotter months,” said Walton. “Matterhorn Metal Roofing comes in colors that can reflect solar radiant heat, lowering surface roof temperatures by as much as 50-70 degrees Fahrenheit and leading to significant energy savings over time. It is a great option for consumers seeking to reduce their carbon footprint and their AC bill.”
