Partnership sets new standard by providing homeowners with 25-year complimentary warranties that cover roofing material, solar mounting system, panels and solar installation workmanship.

SnapNrack, a leading manufacturer of solar mounting solutions, and CertainTeed, a leading North American manufacturer of sustainable building materials, proudly announce that they are partnering to provide more assurance and confidence when installing solar panels on residential roofs by offering complimentary solar, racking, asphalt shingle and workmanship warranties.

SnapNrack and CertainTeed have introduced a solar panel and solar mounting option to the market that does not void the asphalt shingle limited warranty against manufacturing defects. Under the partnership, a solar system installed with CertainTeed asphalt shingles, SnapNrack, and CertainTeed Solstice Panels will qualify for CertainTeed's Umbrella Coverage, provided the installation is performed by a CertainTeed Solar credentialed contractor.

“One of the most common questions people ask when deciding to go solar is, ‘Will this void my roof warranty?’ With this new program from CertainTeed, homeowners can confidently know that the answer to that question is a resounding ‘No’ when their system is installed with SnapNrack mounting hardware,“ said Andrew Wickham, Director of Products & Engineering at SnapNrack.*

CertainTeed's Umbrella Coverage sets a new standard in the solar industry by providing coverage for the solar system, and CertainTeed asphalt shingles, eliminating warranty finger pointing and offering a single point of contact to both homeowners and installers.

Previously, with standard solar installations, installers or homeowners had to rely on three different manufacturers’ warranties for everything on the roof: the roofing material, the solar mounting system, and the solar panels. Through this partnership, customers will experience a seamless warranty process as the entire rooftop solar system and the solar installation workmanship are warrantied under one company. Both solar and CertainTeed asphalt shingles are backed by CertainTeed, ensuring a hasslefree experience.

"We are thrilled to be joining forces with SnapNrack,” said Phoebe Kwan, General Manager of Solar Solutions at Saint-Gobain. ”Our partnership with SnapNrack enables us to offer state-of-the-art solar, racking and roofing solutions along with complete peace of mind to homeowners so they can go solar without worrying about voiding their roof warranty.”

Homeowners, solar installers, and roofing professionals can now invest in solar with confidence, knowing that SnapNrack and CertainTeed have the right solutions to enable them to go solar with complete peace of mind.
