CertainTeed Partners with Trusted Home Renovation and Repair Expert Damon Bennett as Canadian Brand Ambassador
 
Mississauga, Ontario - March 19, 2015– Celebrity contractor and media personality Damon Bennett has partnered with CertainTeed Insulation in Canada, helping to educate homeowners and building professionals on how the company’s comprehensive line of insulation products and systems can help them achieve complete comfort in any project.
 
“We are delighted to have the CertainTeed brand linked to an industry professional as accomplished and trusted as Damon Bennett,” said Marlon Thompson, marketing product manager for CertainTeed Insulation Canada. “His experience as a contractor – and one with a track record of choosing energy-efficient and sustainable products – is a perfect match for the CertainTeed brand and our commitment to providing high performance building solutions.”
 
Bennett is a well-known TV personality and public speaker, and is also involved in charities that assist Canadian veterans. He has been working in the building and contracting industry for 28 years and currently operates Damon Bennett Construction. For nearly 10 years, Bennett has appeared regularly on HGTV home improvement and home renovation programming, including co-hosting HOLMES Inspection.
 
In addition to having two renovation shows in development for two different networks, Bennett can be seen in guest expert segments on Cityline and is the home renovation and repair expert for EZ TV Online and is a regular columnist for HOSS magazine.
 
“I am excited to be joining the CertainTeed Insulation team and look forward to working with this outstanding brand to help homeowners understand their insulation needs and spread the word about the superior thermal performance of Sustainable Insulation™ and the air tightness and vapour protection of MemBrain™,  Bennett said. “Efficient insulation is essential, but so is reducing the risk of moisture problems and the mould and mildew that can cost thousands of dollars to repair.”
As part of this category exclusive endorsement, Bennett will represent CertainTeed Insulation at home shows across Canada and will be the voice of the brand during live appearances as well as on television and in radio, print and online activities.
 
Among the innovative insulation products endorsed by Bennett, MemBrain Continuous Air Barrier &Smart Vapor Retarder is a first-of-its-kind polyamide film that not only blocks moisture from entering, but also adapts permeability to allow excess moisture to escape from wall cavities, helping reduce the potential for mould growth and other moisture-related problems. Bennett is also a proponent of Sustainable Insulation, a proven fiberglass technology that is easy to install and offers excellent thermal, acoustical and indoor air quality properties. It is made from recycled and renewable content including a plant-based binder and contains no formaldehydes, dyes, acrylics or unnecessary fire retardant chemicals.
 
CertainTeed is the only manufacturer with a truly comprehensive line of insulation products and equipment, including time-tested and trusted fiberglass insulation batts and rolls, fiberglass blow-in insulation, polyurethane spray foam, innovative vapor retarder technology, and highly regarded HVAC products as well as insulation blowing and foam application equipment. All of CertainTeed’s insulation products can help building professionals qualify toward credits for both the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) through the Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC) and the Green Building Standard supported by the National Association of Home Builders.
