CertainTeed Redesigns Website, Online Tools
January 19, 2009
VALLEY FORGE, Pa. - With the launch of CertainTeed Corp.’s
redesigned Website (www.certainteed.com),
the company says that building professionals are a click away from product
information, technical resources, and continuing education programs, as well as
new tools to drive new business leads.
The site provides readily accessible information for more than
1,000 CertainTeed interior and exterior building products, including detailed
specifications, material safety data sheets, and installation guides. A new
feature, “My Project Folder,” allows visitors to select and save product
information for future reference.
In addition, an online “Learning Center” provides
information on frequently asked questions and tips regarding CertainTeed
product performance and best practices. The site also offers a comprehensive
menu of continuing education courses and a special “Green Building Products” section,
aligning CertainTeed products with LEED® and the National Association of Home
Builders (NAHB) Green Building Program™.
“CertainTeed’s leadership in the industry is rooted in the
manufacture of high-quality products that are backed by the technical support
and resources needed for building industry professionals to succeed,” said
Peter Dachowski, president and CEO of CertainTeed. “Through the development of
a comprehensive, easy-to-navigate Website, we have strengthened that commitment
to our customers.”
The CertainTeed Website incorporates a new tool that connects
consumers to contractors, installers, and builders through an automated system.
Using the “Find a Pro” tool, consumers can search for a building
professional by zip code and automatically request information directly from
the contractor, builder, or installer.
Featuring project photos, case studies, and an online,
interactive tool - ColorView™ - the “Idea Center” serves as an
information source for building professionals and designers. A special version
of ColorView can also be downloaded by building professionals and serve as a
sales tool, helping customers visualize CertainTeed products on their home or

building sectors through the manufacture of insulation, gypsum, ceilings,
exterior trim, vinyl and polymer shake siding, fiber cement siding, PVC pipe,
