CertainTeed iconic roofing underlayment gets new look
February 8, 2024 at 10:00 a.m.

GRACE ICE & WATER SHIELD® and VYCOR® Weather Barrier Solutions merge Into one cohesive self-adhered weather protection portfolio.

CertainTeed, a subsidiary of Saint-Gobain North America and leading manufacturer of sustainable building materials, is pleased to announce that GRACE ICE & WATER SHIELD® will soon be renamed GRACE VYCOR® ICE & WATER SHIELD®.

The trusted, original self-adhered roofing underlayment will join CertainTeed’s VYCOR® portfolio of self-adhered weather barriers. Both the GRACE ICE & WATER SHIELD® and VYCOR® weather barrier product lines integrated into CertainTeed in 2022 with the Saint-Gobain North America acquisition of GCP. The new name will deliver an innovative packaging design providing tools for distributors, contractors and installers.

“GRACE ICE & WATER SHIELD® roof underlayment’s superior waterproofing performance will remain the same. We are simply giving it a new look,” said CertainTeed Senior Residential Product Manager Brian Chang. “I have had the privilege of overseeing the GRACE and VYCOR® product lines for years, and I am proud to carry over that legacy at CertainTeed. Merging the high-performance self-adhered weather barriers into one weather protection system simplifies benefits for our customers. We look forward to introducing the new GRACE VYCOR® name and packaging design to enhance the user experience, and leave the roofing underlyment’s 46 year-old proven formula untouched.” 

New GRACE VYCOR® Packaging Features:

  • QR codes to access product guides and videos
  • Simplified zones of information 
  • Maximized prominence of brand and product name to easily identify in a warehouse or on the job site

The soon-to-be rebranded GRACE VYCOR® ICE & WATER SHIELD® roofing underlayments are the same product you know and trust, with more assurance and support from an iconic industry leader. Backed by CertainTeed’s SureStart™ warranty, customers can further protect their homes and roofing products during the vital early years following installation and for up to 50 years with SureStart Plus™. From the roof to the walls, the VYCOR® portfolio of self-adhered weather barriers delivers unparalleled whole house weather protection.
