Owens Corning Roofing and Asphalt has made available its patented WeatherLock Mat Self Adhering Underlayment that helps make installation safe for contractors working on the roof. The product’s design is engineered with SureStep Technology, which features a non-abrasive surface, providing excellent traction to help roofing crews reduce the potential for slippage. As part of the Owens Corning Total Protection Roofing System, WeatherLock Mat Self Adhering Underlayment acts as a secondary water shedding layer under shingles to deliver the weather protection that homeowners expect, while featuring the self-adhering, lightweight and versatile design contractors need for convenient and safe installation.

CertainTeed Launches Brand Your Roof Marketing Program

Valley Forge, Pa.-based CertainTeed introduces Brand Your Roof, a marketing program that allows distributors and contractors to add their company logo to roofing underlayment, essentially doing double-duty by turning a current roofing project into a personalized billboard for motorists driving by.

Brand Your Roof allows company logos and contact information to be printed in up to three colors within a 24- by 42-inch area and repeated across a DiamondDeck underlayment 10-square roll, which is 48-inches wide by 250-feet long. DiamondDeck is a synthetic, scrim-reinforced, polymer-based roof underlayment that can be used beneath shingle, shake, metal or slate roofing.
