CertainTeed Corporation

George M. Brown founded General Roofing Manufacturing Company in 1904. It quickly followed a name change for the company to CertainTeed Corporation due to its increased popularity. Starting as a roofing product manufacturer, the company extended its range of products to other construction materials like pipes, sidings and cements. In 1988, CertainTeed became a subsidiary of one of the largest construction materials companies - Saint-Gobain. From the 1930’s to the 1980’s, CertainTeed used asbestos in making its roofing and construction materials, putting the lives of the company’s workers in danger along with the people that used them on a constant basis.
