What Brand Shingle is Best? Part 2 of 2

Last week’s blog broached the question we get so often about which brand of shingle is best. If you missed part one, click here. As we said last week, there is no “best brand,” only the best brand for you. We addressed the benefits of GAF shingles. Today we’re going to cover Owens Corning and CertainTeed roofing products,which are the other two brands of shingles that we offer for roof replacement in Winston Salem and the rest of the Triad.

CertainTeed roofing products are popular among our customers for many reasons. One of the benefits we like best in their two most popular lines, the Patriot and Landmark® shingles, is their durability. Both of those lines offer shingles that are impact, wind, and fire resistant. They also both have the StreakFighter® warranty to protect your shingles from those unsightly algae stains for up to ten years.

Landmark architectural shingles are designed to look like cedar shake roofing and in our area come in 18 colors, some of which qualify as cool roofing through ENERGY STAR. Patriot, the other top seller from CertainTeed, comes in six colors and with advanced color technology, these shingles give your roof a look that can’t be beat. Both of these top selling shingles come backed by CertainTeed’s SureStart™ warranty covering you 100% with labor and replacement costs for up to ten years.

The brand you know for insulation also makes roofing shingles and they do it well. Their “total protection roofing system” includes all parts of your roof providing which protect your home and family for decades. Owens Corning offers six primary lines of shingles with the two most popular being the Oakridge and Duration Series. Both are architectural shingles that come with their algae resistant technology.

The Duration series is exceptionally wind resistant (up to 130mph) thanks in part to the SURENAIL Technology used to affix the shingles to your roof. With four different lines in this series and many color options, it’s hard not to find a shingle that will work with your home. If you want something a bit grander, the Woodcrest series emulates wood shake and the Berkshire series gives your home the look of real slate.
