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 Company was so popular, they changed the name of the company! “Quality made certain, Satisfaction Guaranteed.” That’s how the name CertainTeed was born!
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! Since this new building has an open floor plan, it enables the research team to test the impact of the products in a real environment, providing the company with the ability to innovate better products and solutions for consumers.
