National Nail has expanded its STINGER line of roofing products with three ICC-certified synthetic underlayments: EXO50, EXO35 and EXO25. The underlayments are UV-resistant and can be exposed for up to six months. The synthetic woven fabrics offer high tear strength, and proprietary non-skid additives provide better roof deck contact for high slip resistance. Each roll is lightweight and, with 10 squares per roll, fewer rolls need to be carried to the roof. In addition, preprinted nailing patterns and overlap lines speed installation. STINGER cap fasteners (StaplePac and NailPac) and STINGER cap hammers, cap staplers, and cap nailers are recommended for installing all STINGER EXO products.

CertainTeed Makes Multi-year Commitment to Homes for Our Troops

CertainTeed Corp. has made a multi-year commitment to Homes for Our Troops, a national non-profit organization dedicated to building specially adapted homes for severely injured veterans across the nation to enable them to rebuild their lives. The homes are provided mortgage-free to the veterans they serve. The company’s contribution of roofing, insulation and gypsum wallboard for 40 homes across the U.S. ensures that the homeowners will enjoy a lifetime of indoor comfort and sustainable performance.

“Having corporate partners like CertainTeed is essential to our mission of helping our nation’s most severely injured veterans regain their freedom and independence through the gift of a new home,” said Bill Ivey, Executive Director, at Homes for Our Troops. “It’s an honor to help these heroes rebuild their lives, and CertainTeed’s involvement ensures our homes are built using only the best materials and finest craftsmanship available, and will stand the test of time.”

The 1-story homes feature an open floor plan, going beyond ADA compliance, with roll-in showers, roll-under cooktops and sinks, and other standard accessibility items. The homes may also include specialized items including lift systems, keyless door entry and voice activation controls. Each home is constructed by teams of skilled laborers on site to build, paint and landscape.

Each home will be outfitted with a complete CertainTeed Integrity Roof System, comprised of underlayments, shingles, accessory products and ventilation all working together to provide optimum performance. Asphalt shingle choices will include the durable Landmark 30-year color-blended line of shingles with the widest array of colors and backed by an industry-leading, limited lifetime warranty.

CertainTeed is also providing complete interior wall systems for the homes, including Sustainable Insulation fiberglass batts and a variety of high-performance wallboard. Sustainable Insulation is made from recycled and renewable content, including a plant-based binder, and contains no formaldehydes, dyes, acrylics or unnecessary fire-retardant chemicals. For areas of the home prone to moisture, such as bathrooms and laundry rooms, the team will install M2Tech Moisture & Mold Resistant gypsum board and Diamondback GlasRoc tile backer. CertainTeed Type X gypsum board, which offers a one-hour fire rating, will be used in the garage and mechanical room, and each home¹s attic will be insulated with InsulSafe SP premium blowing wool.

A typical home takes five to seven months to build and costs an average of $430,000. The organization has built more than 166 such homes for wounded service members since 2004.

Isaiah Industries Acquires RoofAquaGuard Underlayment Distribution

Effective May 14, 2014, Isaiah Industries Inc., has acquired the North American distribution of the RoofAquaGuard line of roofing underlayments. Based in Piqua, Ohio, Isaiah Industries has formerly served as a re-seller of the products through Nordic Waterproofing of Finland.

According to Isaiah president Todd Miller, “We are very excited to expand our involvement with roofing underlayments. We were one of the first companies to import synthetic underlayments into the United States many years ago. We see the value of these products and remain committed to providing our customers with high quality products and caring customer service.”

Assisting Isaiah in its efforts will be David Nemes of Vancouver, British Columbia. David has long been involved in the underlayment industry and will serve as a consultant to Isaiah, helping them achieve wider distribution.

The primary products included in this transaction are RoofAquaGuard UDLX which is a 5-foot-wide synthetic underlayment with a slip-resistant top surface. The RoofAquaGuard MT product is a self-adhering ice and watershield product with a slip-resistant and non-asphaltic top surface. The company also offers a breathable roofing and siding underlayment as well as a mesh product for ventilation, sound-deadening, and energy efficiency beneath roofing and siding products. Currently being introduced is RoofAquaGuard ECO which is a product designed for the metal, SBS, asphalt, and fiberglass shingle industries at a very competitive cost.

The company is currently aggressively working to develop new products and expand its involvement with products for waterproofing as well as vapor and moisture transmission control in the building envelope. Products are distributed from warehouses in Piqua, Ohio and Kent, Wash.
