Who Is CertainTeed?
CertainTeed is one of the many building material brands that we work with here at Advanced Roofing. Though we primarily make use of their assortment of shingles and roofing components, CertainTeed has managed to carve out a name for themselves in the building materials industry through hard work and dedication to the craft. With a focus on innovation and a commitment to working with the community and the industry around them, CertainTeed has proven time and time again that they deserve the reputation they’ve acquired over the years. With a spot in the industry for over 110 years, CertainTeed is a name that we trust when it comes to shingles. While the company’s reputation is one reason why their products also speak for themselves. They have been able to adapt over the years and perfect their craft. Below, we’ll show you exactly why CertainTeed is our trusted brand when it comes to shingles.
Why Do We Recommend and Install CertainTeed Shingles?
Now that you know that CertainTeed has a great reputation and quality products, let’s get down to what sets their shingles apart. When it comes down to it, CertainTeed shingles are great for three reasons, their involvement in the integrity roofing system, their durability and the definitive colors that their shingles come in. The three types of shingles that we commonly use from CertainTeed are the following:
The XT25 shingles are a great choice when it comes to being weather-resistant. They have the ability to withstand any weather condition thrown at them. They are built on a fiberglass base which allows them to resist nearly any weather condition. Each shingle is built to last. They also come in a wide variety of colors, just like the other CertainTeed shingles. If you need a shingle that is extremely weather-resistant, then the CertainTeed XT25 shingle is the product for you. This is the more economical choice and may be best for you if you are a more budget-conscious homeowner.
The Landmark shingles are CertainTeed’s most classic shingle style. When it comes to aesthetics and functionality, you’ll have a tough time beating these shingles. They rock a dual-layered design that is meant to make it look like genuine wood. The Landmark shingle, made from asphalt, is also the heaviest weight in its class, offers 10 years of algae protection and comes in a wide variety of colors which gives homeowners tons of freedom when it comes to designing their roof. The Landmark shingle gives you the power to do whatever you want with your roof. The Landmark shingle also benefits from the Integrity Roofing System that was created by CertainTeed. Though the system is rather complex, it is based on six steps. It starts with installing a waterproofing underlayment, then a water-resistant underlayment, then starter shingles are installed, after that comes the main shingles, then the hip and ridge caps, and finally a good ventilation system ensures the shingles will last a long time. Overall, the Landmark shingles from CertainTeed are a great choice for any homeowner who is looking to spice up their roof and prolong its life.
The Landmark Pro series is exactly what you think it is. It is a wonderful improvement beyond the Landmark shingle that comes with even more perks than the original. Landmark Pro is the shingle the pros recommend! The Landmark Pro shingle comes in several great colors that make it stand out above and beyond the rest and it is even thicker, heavier and more durable than the Landmark shingle. It has two laminated layers to give better definition and make the shingles look like real wood. The Landmark Pro shingle also plays an important role in the Integrity Roofing System that CertainTeed stands behind.
This upgraded shingle supplies your roof with even more durability, while increasing the aesthetics of your roof’s overall appearance. It also provides 15 years of algae protection! Homeowners can’t go wrong with Landmark Pro and will truly see the difference once their beautiful Landmark Pro roof is installed.

We aren’t the only ones that love CertainTeed. Many people have gone online to discuss how much they love their CertainTeed roofs. One website, roofinginsights.com even gave CertainTeed a 4.28/5. They primarily gave this score due to the shingles’ weight and their ability to maintain their granules long after the shingles were installed. CertainTeed shingles are loved by many, and their products only prove to add to their already amazing reputation.
About CertainTeed’s Warranty
CertainTeed provides a number of safety nets for their customers in the form of warranties. CertainTeed primarily covers a customer’s shingles for manufacturer defects over a period of time. These are considered Limited Lifetime warranties. CertainTeed refers to this warranty system as SureStart Protection.
SureStart Protection covers the products for a certain amount of time depending on the warranty a customer chooses and it kicks in if CertainTeed determines that their shingles were somehow defective when installed. CertainTeed manufacturer warranties are pro-rated for a specific time frame depending on which warranty is chosen. These are true manufacturer warranties and do not require there to be a roof leak in order to be valid and taken seriously. The CertainTeed warranties are meant to protect their customers from shingle batch issues, coloring issues and unforeseen manufacturer defects that affect the roof.
Advanced Roofing & Construction is a certified SELECT Shingle Master through CertainTeed. This means that here at Advanced, we are able to offer our customers SureStart PLUS 50-year non-prorated roof warranties and 25-year workmanship warranties backed by CertainTeed themselves and these upgraded warranties require upgraded roofing components to be installed. It takes quality work and dedication to achieve this SELECT Shingle Master status and that is why we are one of the few roofing companies in Alabama who are able to offer these kinds of warranties through CertainTeed. Ask your Advanced project manager for more information about how you can get one of these warranties for your roof!
