In 1904, George M. Brown, a young entrepreneur in East St. Louis, Illinois, started the General Roofing Manufacturing Company. A manufacturer of roofing products, it was the predecessor of today's CertainTeed Corporation. As General Roofing's reputation for quality and service grew, so did the company. In 1988, CertainTeed became a wholly owned subsidiary of Saint-Gobain. Renowned for its expertise in glass technology, Saint-Gobain is the world's largest building materials company.
DECRA Roofing Systems originated in New Zealand and is owned by Fletcher Building. Fletcher Building is one of New Zealand's top industrial companies with a history going back to the early 1900's. Fletcher is New Zealand's largest building materials manufacturer and distributor with operations in concrete, steel, plasterboard, laminates, panel products and aluminum extrusion for residential and commercial construction. The original coating has since been replaced with a much stronger acrylic basecoat. Utilizing an acrylic technology has allowed DECRA products to withstand some of the harshest climates worldwide. Over the years, DECRA Roofing Systems has made advancements in production, styles, color, and installation methods, but the product’s origins will forever remain an ingenious solution to a wartime crisis that has benefited people around the world for over 50 years.
