Roofing shingles are among the most popular building materials used to protect houses from the elements. But when you want to install or reroof with shingles, you should choose a brand that assures solid and durable products. CertainTeed is a leading manufacturer of a wide range of building products, including roofing shingles.
Here’s a simple consumer guide to selecting CertainTeed shingles.
CertainTeed’s Product Line
CertainTeed creates its shingles using advanced technology and materials, resulting in products that are resistant to water, wind, and other weather elements. CertainTeed also provides a range of styles and colors, allowing consumers to find a perfect match for their commercial or residential premises.
The main shingles they provide include the following:
CertainTeed’s most basic and cheapest shingle option is XT25 asphalt shingles. It is made on a resilient fiberglass base, with each shingle offering outstanding resistance to tearing and blow-off from strong winds.
Landmark® architectural asphalt shingles are a popular choice among homeowners. These shingles provide a dual-layered design with the dimensions of a true wood shake. They are also the heaviest and have the widest array of color options.
Landmark asphalt shingles have several performance perks, including class A fire resistance rating and certification as shingles that meet the toughest 3rd party (UL) manufacturing quality standards in the industry.
Landmark PRO shingles are an upgrade of Landmark. The option offers similar reliability to the Landmark line but lasts longer and has Maximum Definition colors. Moreover, they have double lamination replicating the dimensional appearance of a true wood shake.
The luxury line of CertainTeed shingles includes Grand Manor and Belmont.
Grand Manor offers all the style and grace that bring an outstanding look from every angle. They have random tabs with shadow lines to offer the dimension and depth of a natural slate roof.
Belmont Luxury is another designer shingle option from CertainTeed. It offers a natural slate roof with high-contrast shadow lines and rich hues. It also has a strong fiberglass base mat, making it durable.
CertainTeed’s Shingles Colors
CertainTeed’s shingles have a wide range of color options. Below are the color options and styling tips:
Black shingles have a dark, rich hue and gray and brown undertones. They blend in well with blue, green, gray, and white homes. Nevertheless, they are versatile to work with almost all colors.
The brown shingle lineup features extra undertones, including hints of grays, blacks, and reds. Brown shingle pairs well with houses painted shades of black, brown, and certain shades of blue and green.
CertainTeed has two blue shingles, i.e., Coastal Blue and Victorian Blue. The shades offer a slight greyish undertone and blend in well with cooler colors, such as complementing shades of greys, blue and cool neutrals.
CertainTeed has two green shingle options. They have a deep, rich green color and work best with yellow and neutral colors such as cream, beige, and tan.
There are five reddish shingles under CertainTeed’s lineup, with many offering a rich, rusty color. They give a bold statement to the property and thus work well with toned-down or quieter colors such as shades of dark browns, gray, soft greens, and black.
CertainTeed offers two dozen gray shades with different undertones, i.e., hints of red, black, and brown. They complement various home colors such as black, shades of green, grey, blue, and white.
CertainTeed has limited choices for white roofing. The available white shingles have silvery tones, but one option has more of a greyish undertone. CertainTeed’s white shingles are versatile and compatible with nearly any home color.
