A known asphalt shingle manufacturer has entered the ranks of the metal roofi ng era backed by years of research and study. CertainTeed has introduced a new metal roofi ng product that Surface Shield is excited to offer homeowners due to its ability to emulate various types of roofi ng substrate profi les such as slate, clay tile, and wood shake. This provides homeowners with a modern look with an old-world feel that has a lower maintenance demand on homeowners and is easier on the wallet. This new line of metal roofi ng products is called Presidio™.

According to a press release from CertainTeed last May regarding the advantages of their new Presidio™ line, CertainTeed enlightened homeowners and contractors alike on Presidio’s advantages by stating, “Presidio is manufactured with durable, deep draw steel to achieve exceptional weather resistance, solar refl ectance and noise reduction. Its fade-resistant surface features a patented, anti-corrosive coating with cool roof technology that can signifi cantly lower roof temperature, decreasing the amount of heat transferred into a home to reduce overall cooling demand on hot days. Also, in addition to being Class IV impact resistance-rated, Presidio can be installed to resist winds up to 130 mph and to achieve a Class A fi re rating. ”

In addition, Presidio™ is available in various colors that allow homeowners to capitalize on its aesthetic versatility, some colors available are English Toffee, Nutmeg, Smokey Sage, Speckled Bronze and Terra Cotta.


Another advantage that CertainTeed highlighted in their press release is that Presidio is an “ENERGY STAR-qualified, sustainable product that is manufactured with up to 50 percent recycled material and is 100 percent recyclable when ultimately removed due to renovation or demolition. By producing clean water runoff, lowering energy bills and reducing landfi ll contributions, Presidio meets both style and sustainability demands and reduces overall carbon footprint.”

Overall, this new product is an ideal product for homeowners who are looking for the modern feel of metal with a touch of traditional design, aesthetic versatility, energy-effi ciency and ability to withstand the elements.
