When it comes to the discussion of what shingles to put on your home, My-Pros will only recommend the best shingles on the market. These shingles are CertainTeed shingles. My-Pros roofs most of our homes with the Landmark line, but also use the higher-end PRO line. Why do we choose to only use CertainTeed shingles? We believe that the quality of your roof is more important that our bottom line.
CertainTeed is the premier manufacturer of exterior building materials. But don’t just take our word for it, they are also the winners of the Professional Remodelers Best in Class award.

One of the most exciting things about getting a new roof on your home is getting to pick a new color. Perhaps you’ve always dreamed of living under a red roof, or you like what you have and just want to make it fresh. CertainTeed’s line of colors is diverse and cohesive to get you the color of your dreams.
CertainTeed offers 33 different colors in their Landmark line alone. These colors range from brown to black to green to blue. CertainTeed also offers colors such as Granite Grey, which is comprised of a mixture of shades to create a roof with great amounts of dimension. The upgraded shingle line, Landmark PRO, introduces 24 other color options that are named with MAX DEF to emphasize the definition these shingles can add to a roof.

If you are an informed homeowner, you know that the quality of your roof is the most important aspect. CertainTeed shingles out perform all other shingles in its class. They are made of fiberglass-reinforced asphalt (SBS modified bitumen), they are then constructed with fused, laminated layers. Most of the CertainTeed shingle lines weigh over 250 pounds per square (100 square feet). This is obviously superior compared to its direct competitor in premier shingle manufacturers, GAF, whose most common line of shingles weighs under 240 pounds per square.
We know that weight isn’t everything when it comes to shingle quality, but anyone who tells you it doesn’t matter is trying to pull the wool over your eyes. In addition to weight, the reliability of the company’s warranty is unparallel to any other shingle manufacturer.
CertainTeed is the only manufacturer that offers a 25-year workmanship warranty in addition to a 50-year shingle lifetime warranty. The CertainTeed Warranty also includes non-prorated coverage, material & labor, tear-off, and disposal. At the end of the day, workmanship warrant is what matters. Due to the low probability of a manufacturing defect on the shingles or roofing accessories.
