CertainTeed shingles are widely used in the US in residential roofs. This material is made of fiberglass reinforced mat that is used to lay asphalt shingles on top (part of the CertainTeed brand as well). The company itself is also known for the quality of the strip shingles, mid grade architectural shingles, basic 3-tab and luxury ones.
CertainTeed was founded in 1904 and has offices and warehouses in 60 facilities in North America. It has remained one of the best shingle companies in the US since. Its shingles display high quality and heavy weight which makes them durable and long lasting. This feature however makes CertainTeed shingles slightly pricier than the rest.
One of the major advantages of CertainTeed shingles is the wide selection of luxury items they offer. In addition, they also have a three layer shingle in their portfolio that will perform better than the rest while also providing a captivating look for your roof.
Another pro of CertainTeed shingles is the wide variety of colors they offer, especially the 3-tab ones. This allows you to design a better exterior for your home.
Apart from aesthetics, CertainTeed shingles offer many functional qualities that should be appreciated. They have a Class A fire rating, a 5-star extended warranty that is also transferable once, and overall a notable durability.
As any building material however, CertainTeed shingles also have some drawbacks. The first one is price. As previously mentioned, the high quality of these shingles also make them more expensive. The warranty also comes at a considerable cost that can be off putting to many homeowners.
The prices vary depending on the type and quality of the shingles you choose. They start at $70 and can go up to $250 per square, not including installation of the rest of the supporting materials. Labor and installation itself cost from $120 to $240 depending on the location and type of roof. In addition, the underpayment, nails strips, ridge vent, starter strip and ridge cost from $10 to $22 per square foot.
