The demand for sustainable and world-class infrastructure has brought about a wave of innovative products introduced to the architectural and building community. Amongst all the products, two of them found immediate adoption by a diverse customer base, namely Architects, Builders, Individual House-owners, and even Government Agencies for a variety of projects ranging from residential, townships to commercial.

The first product that stood tall in its class was Roofing Shingles which today have become an integral part of sloped roof projects. They are not only extensively used for residential projects but also a big hit in the commercial industry such as resorts and hospitality, educational institutions, government staff quarters etc. The reason behind this rapid popularity owes to the unmatched technical performance that Shingles deliver coupled with a variety of aesthetically designed patterns where one gets to choose from.

The year 2004 saw Roofing Shingles foray into the Indian market. Introduced by Saint-Gobain, under its CertainTeed brand, Roofing Shingles are essentially composites of reinforced fiberglass and mineral stabilized, high grade asphalt.

The upper layer is overlaid with high strength ceramic coated granules and below the bottom layer is a mineral stabilizer cum fire-retardant coating. The granular layer provides multiple hues of shades which do not fade in color for lifetime.

They come in the form of mats sized 3 x 1feet, fabricated in a variety of patterns that cater to diverse designs of the roof. This entire composition, though light-weight and unbreakable, is resistant to wind, algal-growth, and ensures 100% waterproofing.

Shingle can be conveniently applied on RCC slabs, wooden decks, fiber-cement boards etc. and are fast to install. Their mat-form enables them to flexibly adapt to various steep-slope/curved/arched/conical/dome-shaped profiles.

CertainTeed, a group company of Saint-Gobain in US is renowned for manufacturing the most quality-oriented Shingles. Their presence in India has led to the development of a wide network of dealers and exclusively trained application teams across the country.

The other product which is quickly catching on the demand in the façade sector is- Vinyl Sidings. Introduced by Saint-Gobain, Vinyl Sidings enjoy distinct characteristics through their ability to shield the building exteriors from water-penetration and fast installation with minimal surface preparation.

Vinyl sidings are primarily blended Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) extrusions (In the form of panels) which are modified during manufacturing with stabilizers, pigments and acrylic agents and finally extruded to give the finished product important attributes like UV resistance, color stability, and durability.

They are extremely light-weight but sturdy, making ideal for installation on high-rise buildings. They do not rust, rot, peel or flake-off and come in a variety of profiles and colors to choose from. This makes them convenient to perform in various climatic conditions thereby making them highly sustainable.

As a result, many residential, educational, and commercial buildings have been cladded with Sidings. Their popularity continues to rise and is paving the way for a new trend of cladding in the facade industry.

With the aim to offer world-class building products, Saint-Gobain continues to develop and educate the market about innovative products such as Shingles and Sidings.
