Malvern, Penn.— CertainTeed recently announced its acquisition of the Matterhorn metal roofing brand from Michigan-based metal roofing manufacturer Quality Edge, Inc. The purchase expands CertainTeed’s roofing portfolio and capability to serve distributors and contractors throughout North America with a consolidated source of asphalt shingles and metal roofing products.
“CertainTeed has seen the value of Matterhorn since the beginning,” said Scott Rasmussen, president of Quality Edge. “We’re honored that CertainTeed recognizes the quality and performance of Matterhorn and we’re excited to make Matterhorn available throughout North America.”
The alliance combines CertainTeed’s relationships with distributors, contractors, and builders with Quality Edge’s expertise in painted metal building products.
“Our collective efforts in manufacturing, product development and marketing are expected to accelerate the acceptance of high value metal roofing products by residential and commercial customers looking for a metal solution,” said Tom Smith, president of CertainTeed Roofing.
The Matterhorn brand offers homeowners three architectural roofing profiles – Tile, Slate and Shake – which are designed to replicate the color, shadow, and detail of their traditional counterparts while providing the increased durability of metal engineering. Available in numerous colors, including ENERGY STAR rated options.
“We look forward to working with existing and new distributor partners and contractors as we launch this initiative to bring a line of the most authentic replication of shake, slate and tile in metal roofing to all North America,” said Fred VanDongen, vice-president of sales for CertainTeed Roofing.
