Chattanooga, TN (Vocus) February 9, 2010
According to Propex Executive Vice President Ralph Bruno, the launch of Opus Roof Blanket, which has been in development and testing for the last six years with constant feedback from roofing contractors, will create an entirely new category in roofing underlayment.
"Unlike felt paper and plastic sheeting underlayment, Opus Roof Blanket was developed with roofing contractors in mind,” says Bruno. "The unique composition of Opus gives it the most slip-resistant surface technology, meeting a top concern for roofing contractors. Additionally, the one-of-a-kind "blanket” surface makes it easy for roofers to snap a chalk line.”
In addition to these benefits, Bruno says roofers can expect to see many more advantages versus felt paper and plastic sheeting underlayment when they use Opus on their next job. "Opus is lightweight and easier to work with, cleaner with less wasted material, provides more coverage per roll, and is faster to install,” said Bruno.
"I’m looking forward to launching Opus at the IRE,” he added. "When roofers get this product in their hands, they’ll quickly realize it is vastly different and a far superior product than both felt paper and plastic sheeting underlayment. Opus truly is in a category of its own.”
