FIRST TRUST COMPANY.
Keeping up with the procession is not enough for the General—he
^,ead he does —in volume, quality and price.’
I he General s leadership is due to the enormous resources at
his command —the five m’s of modern manufacturing — men,
money, mills, machinery and materials.
Men who have learned the roofing business
through years of practical experience are in
charge of every department of the business.
Men who have made a life study of the
blending of asphalt^ comprise-the General’s
Board of Expert Chemists.
Money the means to promote efficiency,
increase out-put, reduce cost, prevent waste
is at the General’s call in abundance.
Mills—the largest roofing mills in the world
are the General s. They are advantageously
/located at points where cost of fuel, access
to raw materials and quick distribution of
of finished products are most favorable.
Machinery — the most modern known to
the roofing business, equips each of the
General s enormous mills. Not a dollar is
left unspent which would speed up produc
tion, increase quality or lower costs.
Materials the food of the mills—is bought
by the General in enormous quantities,and
stored. This means the pick of the market
and favorable buying, and no loss from idle
machinery, due to shortage of materials.
Thus the success of CERTAIN-TEED
Roofing is no secret, but is due to a combin
ation of . resources and experience without
parallel in the roofing business.
CERTAIN-TEED is made of the best
quality roofing ielt, thoroughly saturated
with a scientific blend of soft asphalts, the
formula of the General^ board of expert
chemists. It is then coated with a blend of
harder, asphalts, which keeps the inner
saturation soft and prevents the drying-out
so destructive to the ordinary roof.
CERTAIN-TEED is guaranteed for 5, 10
or 15 years, according to ply (1, 2 or 3).
Experience proves that it lasts longer.
CERTAIN-TEED is made in rolls; also in
slate-surfaced shingles. There is a type of
CERTAIN-TEED for every kind of'build
ing, with flat or pitched roof, from sky
scraper to small residence or out-building.
CERTAIN-TEED is sold by responsible
dealers all over the world, at reasonable
prices. Investigate it before you decide on
any type of roof.
