They have been in the industry since 1904, and provide a wide variety of products. This is in addition to roofing materials. Shingles are manufactured right here in the United States, in Ohio to be specific. As far as quality is concerned, each batch that is manufactured goes through rigorous testing at their facility. They have with high tech machinery to ensure quality and consistency with each batch they manufacture. They twist and stretch shingles, perform impact tests, check for exact color and thickness, among other things.

When it comes to product variety and color choices, you will not be disappointed with Certainteed. They offer everything from basic three tab shingles (the flat looking shingles that you normally see on older houses), to the popular architectural shingle with a dimensional look. They even have specialty products like cedar shake style shingles. They also have solar roofing products.

Another reason why CertainTeed shingles product review is easy to do is because of the offered warranty. Depending on which type of shingle you choose, your product warranty will run anywhere from 25 years to lifetime. The warranty is transferable to the next owner within a specified time period called SureStart, up to 15 years for some types. They also warranty against algae buildup, a necessity in northern climates.

Certification

While many manufacturers offer training courses for their installers, CertainTeed has 8 different certifications available to their contractors. This ensures that you get a quality product. It also ensures product is being installed properly as well. In addition to training their contractors, they also make their shingles easier to install. Most shingles provide a 1/16″ wide line across the shingle for nails to go. Certainteed meanwhile has a 1 1/2″ strip. This makes it much easier to ensure that the nail is placed properly. It also means less risk of them blowing off in bad weather.
