At Chase Construction NW, Inc. we work with a variety of products, and today we are going to focus on just one – CertanTeed. This company was founded in 1904 by George Brown, and after 13 years in business, the slogan for the General Roofing Manufacturing Certainteed roofing Chase Construction North West Inc.Company was so popular, they changed the name of the company! “Quality made certain, Satisfaction Guaranteed.” That’s how the name CertainTeed was born!

About CertainTeed

Since it’s start, this company has grown as a premier asphalt shingle manufacturer. In the 1960’s the company expanded to include fiberglass insulation and PVC pipes, leading to the introduction of solid vinyl siding. Recently in 2007, the company added Gypsum and ceilings to their scope of building materials as well! In 2015, CertainTeed re-established themselves in a new state of the art headquarter building that showcases 40 products!

Roofing Shingles

Asphalt Shingles are the most commonly used residential roofing product on the market, and CertanTeed manufactures a wide variety of styles and colors. With shingles for every taste, they are sure to have the right one for you!

  • Strip shingles are the most basic type. They are single layer shingles and generally designed to look like slate. CertainTeed strip shingles are: CT™ 20XT™ 25, and XT™ 30.
  • Dimensional shingles are typically heavier weight than strip shingles and are manufactured with multiple layers. CertainTeed’s  Landmark® Series Roofing Shingle is a dimensional shingle that features tri-laminate technology.
  • CertianTeed Premium roofing shingles are Grand Manor®Presidential Shake® TL, and Carriage House®. Like most premium roofing shingles, they include enhanced aesthetics, increased design element and are laminated.



Waterproofing is very important in the roofing industry, and a good underlayment prevents leaks from wind driven rain, and ice dams on vulnerable areas on the roof. Used as a water resistant layer beneath the shingle, CertainTeed manufactures several grades of underlayment.

Starter Shingles

Starter shingles provide extra protection to your roof with out taking away from the overall design, and they save time on the application!  CertainTeed manufactures starter shingles under the product names Swiftstart® to be used with the Landmark® series and High Performance Starter to be used with Grand Manor®Highland Slate® and Hatteras® shingles.

Accessory Products

TAM skylights

“Tam Skylights are the best performing skylights on the market”

Who is Tam?

TAM Skylight replacement by Chase Construction

Tam industries was founded in 1970 by Louie Tam in his garage in Seattle, WA. He worked with a acrylic sheets, and eventually fiberglass. As the energy crisis hit the 1970s, he saw a need for energy efficient products and the evolution in the demand for skylights. Marketing to existing clients, and using material that he already had, he started manufacturing acrylic dome skylights. And the rest is history! In the ’80s, with the acquisition of a larger skylight manufacturing company, production capability increased, and Louie was able to establish his company, as one of the leaders in skylight manufacturing in the Pacific Northwest. Louie’s son Irwin now runs this family owned business in Seattle in a 50,000 sq ft facility. Tam Skylights have proven themselves to many local contractors and homeowners of the reliability and quality of their skylights.

EDCO Generations Roof in Kent

Kent Gets a New Metal Roof!

An elegant material to work with

New Roof in Kent

We have recently told you about the EDCO Generations® line of metal shingles. This material has further ignited our passion for roofing. It is an elegant material to work with and we are proud to have the chance to beautify the roofs of the Northwest with a steel “cedar” shake that won’t fade or diminish.

A New Metal Roof In Kent, WA

EDCO Generations Roof in KentRecently we had the opportunity to transform a beautiful home in Kent using the EDCO Generations in the color cedar. Arriving at the property, we instantly knew that a full roof replacement was necessary to restore this beautiful home to its former glory. After several material samples and quotes, the homeowner decided upon EDCO Generations, and we could not be happier that they did! The steep pitch of this roof made it difficult to maintain over the years, and surpassing the 30 year mark, well let’s just say that it was a relief to the homeowner to get this project underway! Material was ordered, safety checks took place, and our crew was ready to begin!

A New Roofing System

shake roof replacementWe started by tearing off a very old and rotted layer of cedar roofing that had reached the end of it’s life. We then proceeded to re-sheet the entire roof over the existing skip-sheathing in order to create a solid sub straight to lay down the new roofing system. Next came the ice and water shield that was applied around the perimeter edge of the roof, which helps prevent leaks due to ice-damming in the gutters, and wind-driven rain. Malarkey hybrid synthetic, breathable underlayment was then laid down for quality roof deck protection. The crew proceeded to grind out the existing counter flashing around the chimney and replaced it with new. We also had a flat section on the garage, our crew installed DensDeck roof board to create a smooth solid surface to apply the GAF 60 mil TPO. This combination created a complete roof system with a class A fire rating. The existing existing skylight was formatted for shake roofing and was incompatible with the new metal roof system, so the crew heighten the curbs and installed new TAM skylights.

Happy with the results!

Edco Generations Steel RoofThe homeowner could not be happier with the results, and that means that we could not be happier! We love seeing the faces of our satisfied customers once they see their new roof system. Not only is the house now more beautiful than ever, it will be well protected for years to come!! Having been in the roofing industry since 2002, we are experienced, and certified in a wide variety of roofing products. We are happy to say that EDCO Generations Roofing Collection, is one of the products that we work with!
