The new brand alliance further expands CertainTeed’s commitment to providing sustainable energy solutions.

Today, CertainTeed, the leading North American manufacturer of sustainable building materials, announces that it has entered a strategic partnership with residential and commercial solar roofing pioneer, SunStyle. This deal signifies a notable expansion for CertainTeed, broadening its U.S. offerings to include the premium Swiss-engineered line of product. Through this partnership, CertainTeed is poised to deliver an array of industry-leading solar solutions to its customer base, including homeowners, architects, builders and more.

SunStyle has been a leader in the development of building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) technology for more than 15 years and extends CertainTeed’s growing portfolio of solar technology offerings.

“SunStyle’s portfolio perfectly complements our existing Solstice line, which was designed to offer consumers a stylish, durable and energy-efficient solution,” said Phoebe Kwan, GM Solar Solutions at Saint-Gobain. “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 industry-leading performance and sleek aesthetics. SunStyle 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. The solar roof system can be installed on single- and multi-family homes, or on commercial and industrial buildings.

Saint-Gobain, CertainTeed’s parent company, was the exclusive manufacturer and distributor of SunStyle products from 2009-2014 in Europe, exemplifying this long-standing relationship. Additionally, Saint-Gobain supplied the glass for SunStyle’s dragonscale roof project installed on a breathtaking Google facility in Mountain View, California, completed in 2021. As the demand for solar innovation rises, SunStyle and CertainTeed share a unique position geared for future growth.

“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,” said Philippe Agafonovas, chief executive officer 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.”
