Building Materials Corporation of America Completes Acquisition of Correct Building Products. Establishes GAF Decking Systems Unit

Wayne, NJ (8/09) - A subsidiary of Building Materials Corporation of America (BMCA) has completed the acquisition of substantially all of the assets of Correct Building Products effective August 28th, 2009. Correct Building Products, based in Biddeford, Maine is a leader in developing and manufacturing high-performance, low maintenance, composite decking and railing and the business will operate under BMCA's newly formed GAF Decking Systems business. The acquisition will add to GAF's current decking brands, including CrossTimbers® Decking and RailWays® Railing Collection, and further enhances GAF's position as one of North America's largest building materials companies.

Bob Tafaro, President and Chief Executive Officer of GAF, welcomed the Correct Building Products team, sharing "Correct's product has an excellent reputation in the marketplace and immediately gives GAF a leading offering for the growing low-maintenance segment of the market. We're thrilled that they're joining the GAF family of quality building products." The operation will be joined with GAF's existing CrossTimbers® decking business. Dick Nowak, Chief Operating Officer of GAF, added, "Correct has a terrific reputation for product innovations and has a great team. We are looking forward to working with the team at Correct as we create a true industry leader in decking and railing."

Correct Building Products was founded in 1999 by two industry veterans with the goal of manufacturing technically superior, durable and sustainable composite building products for outdoor living. CorrectDeck® products, including CorrectDeck CX®, CorrectPorch® and CorrectDock®, are made from a patented wood fiber-polypropylene formulation. In addition to producing a superior product, CorrectDeck® has also been recognized for their environmentally friendly manufacturing processes including a two-time winner of the Governor's Waste Reduction Award. Correct was the first manufacturer of polypropylene-based composite decking products and continues to lead the industry with technical innovation in areas of design, formulation and automation.

This acquisition will provide GAF with a more comprehensive offering of composite decking and railing, supported by a top notch sales force, two of the best manufacturing facilities in the industry, the strongest customer service, and outstanding marketing support and advertising. Moving forward, GAF will continue to offer both the CrossTimbers® and CorrectDeck® products, each of which serves a unique market segment. In addition to the current offerings, stay tuned for new and exciting products that will ensure GAF has one of the most comprehensive decking system offerings in the industry!
