New CertainTeed Incentive Programs Help Roofing Contractors Sharpen Their Competitive Edge

(Valley Forge, Pa.) – When working with CertainTeed, roofing contractors not only have access to an industry-leading portfolio of products, they can also take advantage of a wide array of incentive programs to boost their bottom line. This year, the newest value-added benefits of working with CertainTeed roofing products include cash rebates, as well as various promotions for contractors.

“Our customers are some of the best in the business and we’re proud to provide them with quality products,” says Jay Butch, director of contractor programs and promotions for CertainTeed Roofing. “Our new incentive programs serve as a ‘thank you’ for playing such an important role in our continued success.”

This year, CertainTeed introduces the Contractor’s Edge™ Shingle Sweepstakes, allowing contractors in North America who utilize SureStart™ Plus warranties the chance to win one of five 2014 Ford™ F-150 trucks or be one of 10 winners of $5,000 worth of Landmark™ Pro shingles. In addition, roofing contractors who meet the eligibility requirements will be entered into a $500,000 sweepstakes for CertainTeed shingles.

New rebates are also available through the No Limits promotion for contractors who purchase CertainTeed products, such as Landmark™ Solaris, Landmark™ Pro, Presidential™, Highland Slate™, Independence™ and more, including select CertainTeed accessories.

Qualifying low-slope lines include CoolStar™ and Flintlastic® commercial roofing products. Rebates range from $1 to $4 per square and are loaded onto a CertainTeed Visa® debit card. Gold and Silver Star Contractors will also be eligible for an extra $1 per roll rebate for qualifying products.

In addition, Gold and Silver Star Contractors specifically focused on commercial projects also have the opportunity to earn incentives with the No Dollar Limit promotion. For each 250 squares of eligible warranties registered, contractors will receive a $500 Visa debit card rebate.
