Question DetailsAsked on 5/6/2015

Does Owens Corning carry the CertainTeed shingles?

Our condo association is replacing shingles and we were told the company is using Owens Corning shingles but I found on the ground a slip from the back of the shingle that said it was The Roofing Collection by CertainTeed. So I'm wondering if Owens Corning carries this shingle.

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

Are you sure it said by Certainteed ? Here is the Owens Corning shingle listing in Sweet's Construction materials catalog showing it pretty clearly as an OC product line description -

But - I also found a wholesaler ad showing The Roofing Collection - CertainTeed


http://www.roofingstore.ca/images/shi...


so may be it was not a copyrightable phrase so both use it.


And no - OC and CertainTeed are not one company - OC is US owned and operated, CertainTeed is owned by Saint-Gobain, a major building materials company from France.


Guess you would have to contact Owens Corning to find out for certain - unfortunately different styhle shingles come in different color wrappers, not Pink Panther Pink. It is possible the CertainTeed slip came from a prior job and was just stuck in handling (or left in the truck bed and got stuck) to the bundle wrapper on this job. I don't remember if the OC shingles have the company name printed on the back of the shingles or not. Sounds like maybe a thing for the contracting officer of the association to check into - but the wrappers should clearly state Owens Corning and the of shingle - TrueDefinition, Oakridge, or whatever it is.
