Tennessee-based Propex Operating Company today announced that Opus™ Roof Blanket, a new category of roofing underlayment, was selected by Professional Builder and Professional Remodeler Magazines for their "101 Best New Products of 2010".
The building products editors were seeking the most innovative and impactful products introduced during the past year. Opus Roof Blanket is an entirely new category of roofing underlayment that features Blanket Protection™ for both the roof and the roofer. It has a unique blanket-like look and feel, providing safer walking traction and acting as an added layer of protection against moisture and leaks.
"We are pleased that experts in the industry have recognized Opus Roof Blanket as an excellent option to both felt paper and the plethora of synthetic plastic sheeting underlayments," said Ralph Bruno, Executive Vice President for Propex Global Sales and Marketing. "As an entirely new category of roofing underlayment, this recent achievement for Opus underscores our acceptance and growth with building professionals."
Perfectly suited for all types of roofing materials including metal, tile and asphalt, Opus Roof Blanket has superior fastener retention, stability in high heat and walking traction that has been independently tested as the best in the industry. In addition, Opus Roof Blanket has a one-of-a-kind tear-free guarantee that provides peace of mind for the roofer and a 30/30 warranty that says it can be left exposed for 30 months and will endure for 30 years after roofing materials are applied. As an added assurance to contractors and their customers, Opus Roof Blanket has a building code report from ICC Evaluation Service, Inc. (ICC-ES), report number ESR-3041.
