FREMONT, CA – August 8, 2017 – Fremont, California-based PetersenDean Roofing & Solar announced its relationship with GAF, North America’s largest roofing manufacturer. The relationship will help supply PetersenDean consumers in all of its seven operating states with shingles that can be used to comply with Title 24 cool roof requirements.
GAF is an American owned company with headquarters in Parsippany, New Jersey, and more than 30 manufacturing facilities nationwide.
“We selected GAF because they own an expansive network of manufacturing facilities and produce quality products that make the company a leader in the industry,” said Gary Liardon, President of US Consumer Division, PetersenDean Roofing & Solar. “With all of GAF’s plants based in the U.S., we are providing our customers with quality products and supporting American jobs. They also produce the popular shingle colors that our customers like and offer comprehensive warranties. We are proud to partner with such an innovative and dependable manufacturer.”
GAF is the only roofing manufacturer to earn the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval on its products. The company recently introduced its Timberline HD® Reflector Series™ Shingles, which can be used to comply with Title 24 cool roof requirements. Cool roofs reflect more sunlight and absorb less heat than traditional roofs to help keep your home cooler. Additionally, GAF offers its Timberline HD® Reflector Series™ Shingles in a large selection of colors with comprehensive warranties. The color selection and warranties will provide PetersenDean customers with choice, quality, and peace of mind.
“At GAF, we are committed to working with the best contractors in the industry,” said Todd Tarchalski, West area vice president of sales at GAF. “We couldn’t be more excited to work with PetersenDean, one of America’s largest and most trusted roofing and solar companies.”
The GAF products will be offered in all seven states where PetersenDean operates.
This relationship helps meet two important goals for PetersenDean, which installs about 2,000 solar and roof systems each month nationally: providing PetersenDean customers with quality, innovative roofing materials and supporting American jobs.
“We made a decision at PetersenDean to only source our products from manufacturing facilities in North America,” said Jim Petersen, president and CEO of PetersenDean Roofing & Solar. “That’s why we chose to utilize GAF, which owns multiple manufacturing facilities across the nation. We can help customers lower their electric bills, help the environment, and help the economy.”
