Tilcor’s new Concealed Fastening (CF) Shingle and Shake roofing systems are making roofs more reliable, watertight and durable than ever before. These genuine concealed fastening direct-to-deck steel profiles are a cut above comparable market products. Available in the USA this summer and launched at this year’s International Roofing Expo, the CF Shingle and Shake profiles bring features that set them apart from the competition.
In this blog, we talk about the CF Shingle and Shake profiles and why it’s now your superior roofing solution.
WHY CF SHINGLE AND SHAKE ARE THE UNPARALLELED CHOICES FOR ROOFERS AND HOMEOWNERS.
Tilcor’s CF Shingle and Shake profiles are a genuine concealed fastening roofing system combined with an innovative interlocking Secure Lock (SL) lap system that can be installed direct-to-deck.
CF Shingle and Shake use the esteemed method of concealed fastening to affix panels to the roof. As the image below displays, the back-fastening tab folds over itself, which provides strength and a secure area to fasten the panels. The next panel conceals the fasteners to ensure they are not exposed to the weather. Other products on the market don’t have this feature and is just one of the reasons why the CF Shingle and Shake profiles are attracting the attention of roofing professionals. Although other products may claim their fastening systems aren’t visible, they’re still exposed to the elements and subject to deterioration.
The innovative, interlocking SL lap system uses S-Lock technology. Recent test results prove that the 3-1/2” side lap and long back-fastening tabs ensure water tightness and can withstand the highest wind loads.
