Centerpoint Roofing Systems
Innovative Centerpoint Translucent Roofing Systems are designed to
let soothing, white museum quality light flood into your home.
Nichols & Associates Custom Designed Homes is the exclusive
Centerpoint distributor in Fairfield Glade, Crossville and
Cumberland County (and many other mid-East Tennessee counties).
This innovative roof system has captured the attention of
homebuilders all over the southeast and you can see these
translucent roofs in our Cumberland County homes.
Centerpoint uses Lexan, a poly-carbonate material produced by GE
Plastics, and Nanogel, an ultra lightweight solid produced by
Cabot Corp., to produce a roof system that allows more natural
light into a room, blocks harmful ultraviolet rays and prevents
the heat buildup often seen with glass skylights.
The result of this new technology allows a builder to bring
natural daylight further into a home than ever before. This soft
light creates a unique atmosphere in a home that is soothing and
relaxing. The CPT Systems roof produces more efficient usable
light than traditional glazing methods.
Two of the largest homebuilders in the Southeast, Centex and D.R.
Horton, have installed Centerpoint roofs on more than 100 homes in
The roof systems come in several sizes... from Series 300 for bay
windows or small breakfast nooks to the Series 500 for a home
office, den or kitchen. The CPTS mainframe is made from heavy duty
extruded aluminum and wrapped in maintenance free vinyl. The
panels are made from polycarbonate and filled with “Nanogel.”
What is Nanogel could be your next question? It was developed at a
cost of over $100 million dollars by the Cabot Corporation. It is
truly space age insulation. It insulates space suits for
astronauts as they spacewalk. Once a silica sand, Cabot
manipulated the grains to where each piece has 50,000 pockets of
air in it, making it the lightest weight solid on Earth!
When installed in a CPTS it will never lose its insulating
abilities. It is permanently hydrophobic (water can’t touch it) so
it will never foster the growth of mold. Hail can’t dent it. It
will never leak. It is extremely energy efficient at stopping
solar heat gain and carries a 10 year warranty.
