About Water Tight Technologies®

Water Tight Technologies is a company dedicated to bringing quality products to the construction industry. To fully appreciated Water Tight Technologies, commitment to those that work with their hands, one need only look to its founder Paul Mineart.
Growing up on a farm, Mr. Mineart spent his youth working with his family of carpenters and construction workers. Anyone who has been involved in these trades knows that it is a life of hard work. It is a life filled with equal amounts of risk and rewards more often measured in personal satisfaction than financial well being.
Paul Mineart's early career was spent as a chemist in rubber compounding and processing for Firestone Tire and Rubber Company where he gained an appreciation for the performance of rubber products. After earning an MBA, Mr. Mineart served in a number of financial capacities. In 1983, he joined the newly created company, Firestone Building Products, a Division of Firestone Tire and Rubber Company as Controller. In 1992 he became President of that company. Under Mr. Mineart's stewardship, Firestone Building Products experienced explosive growth becoming the leading manufacturer of commercial roofing materials in the United States and a major supplier to the European market. Recognizing his contribution to the parent company's financial performance and success, Mr. Mineart was appointed a corporate officer, Vice President of Bridgestone/Firestone, Inc. in 1997.
Committed to supporting the growth and prosperity of the industry, Mr. Mineart served on a number of committees of the National Roofing Contractors Association and the steering committee for National Roofing Foundation, Roofing Industry Alliance for Progress.
In 1998 Mr. Mineart was appointed President of Firestone Industrial Products. As his first love is the roofing industry, Mr. Mineart retired from Bridgestone/Firestone Inc. after 33 years of dedicated service.
Mr. Mineart co-founded Water Tight Technologies® in the year 2000 and has served as its President since inception. Water Tight Technologies® strategic focus was to bring its EPDM product line, RUBBERALL®, to the smaller roofing contractor doing light commercial and residential roof projects. The long term performance properties of EPDM as a flexible membrane have prompted Water Tight Technologies to pursue other lining applications for EPDM. Today this membrane is used for waste water holding ponds, as a liner for water gardens and even for something as small as a liner for patio planters.
With clear evidence that energy costs were going to be a major concern for Americans, Water Tight Technologies began developing white roofing products in 2005. Today Water Tight Technologies markets two such products under the BRITE-n-EZ® brand to address the needs of the contractor and building owner who see the clear benefits of a white roof. These products are: BRITE-n-EZ® TPO Membrane Roof System and BRITE-n-EZ® Roof Coating System.
Roof membranes introduced in the last 30 years are performing well beyond the manufacturer's warranty period even though seam and flashing details may need attention. Today's challenging economic times are prompting building owners to seek ways to extend the life of these roofs rather than replace them. Thus at the International Roofing Expo (IRE) in 2009, Water Tight Technologies introduced a full line of coatings and roofing accessories that are sold directly to large contractors to address the growing demand for roof restoration and maintenance.
Water Tight Technologies is committed to supplying quality, value added products that will enhance the roofing contractor's profit opportunity.
