Military and Seniors Earn $250 Gift Card With New Roof Promotion From CertainTeed

(Valley Forge, Pa.) – CertainTeed is pleased to announce a special promotion, “Roofs for the Red, White and Blue, Plus the Silver Too.” From June 1 through December 31, 2013, members of the U.S. military or AARP who hire a CertainTeed credentialed roofing company to install an Integrity Roof System™ covered by a SureStart™ PLUS warranty on their home are eligible to receive a $250 Cabela's® gift card. Detailed promotion information is available at

“This promotion is designed as a ‘thank you’ to two important groups of people in our country – those who have served and those who are older in age,” says Jay Butch, director of contractor programs and promotions for CertainTeed Roofing. “And because of their reputation as a popular, rugged outdoor products retailer, partnering with Cabela’s made sense. CertainTeed roofs are also extremely durable and come with the best warranty available.”

Homeowners have a wide range of options when selecting roofing products from CertainTeed. For homes located in areas prone to hail storms, impact resistant shingles feature a tough reinforced fiberglass base made from the industry’s strongest roofing materials. For superior aesthetics, Grand Manor™, a luxurious multi-layered laminated shingle, is a beautiful choice that replicates the look of natural slate at a more affordable price. Those looking to create a more sustainable home might consider Landmark Solaris™ solar-reflective shingles, which are also eligible for energy efficiency tax credits. Offering the traditional beauty of asphalt shingles with the environmental benefits of cool-roof technology, Landmark Solaris can also reduce roof temperature and future utility bills.

The CertainTeed Integrity Roof System is comprised of underlayments, shingles, accessory products and ventilation all working together to provide optimum performance. Combined with a CertainTeed SureStart PLUS warranty, homeowners are guaranteed the best possible coverage after their new roof has been installed. Homeowners should meet with their local credentialed roofing contractor to determine the best shingle and level of warranty to meet their needs.  Credentialed roofing contractors can be found on CertainTeed’s website by clicking on the “Locate a Pro” icon; homeowners can rest assured that these contractors are focused on delivering topnotch workmanship and customer satisfaction.
