CertainTeed announced it has entered a strategic partnership with residential and commercial solar roofing pioneer SunStyle.
The deal broadens CertainTeed’s growing portfolio of U.S. solar offerings to include SunStyle’s building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) technology.
“SunStyle’s portfolio perfectly complements our existing Solstice line, which was designed to offer consumers a stylish, durable, and energy-efficient solution,” says Phoebe Kwan, general manager of solar solutions at Saint-Gobain, CertainTeed’s parent company. “The company has a fantastic track record across Europe, offering beautiful solar roofs that fit so well with CertainTeed’s goal of providing dependable solar products. We are thrilled to be able to offer our customers SunStyle with this partnership and are excited about the innovative ways it will be used for future projects.”
Combining structural roofing materials with solar modules, SunStyle offers a comprehensive solar roofing system with high performance and sleek aesthetics. The solar roofing modules are installed edge to edge in a patented overlapping diamond dragonscale configuration, engineered for weatherproofing and strong enough to withstand harsh weather conditions, says the company.
The system can be installed on single-family homes and multifamily buildings, or on commercial and industrial buildings.
“As we began considering expanding our reach even further into the United States, we were looking for a leader in the commercial and residential construction and solar space with strong networks, while also ensuring that a deep commitment to quality manufacturing and sustainability is a business priority,” says Philippe Agafonovas, CEO of SunStyle. “CertainTeed checked all of those boxes and much more—the perfect fit for SunStyle. We look forward to our partnership for many years to come.”
