  • Residential Roofing Products

    Residential Roofing Products include those products necessary to provide a quality roofing system typically for a consumers home, garage or other residential applications.

    CertainTeed manufactures high-quality asphalt roofing shingles in a wide variety of styles and colors for residential applications. Asphalt roofing shingles are the most commonly used residential roofing products in the market. There are three major categories of roofing shingles including Traditional roofing shingles, Designer roofing shingles and Luxury roofing shingles.
  • Underlayments

    Underlayments are designed for use on residential roof decks as a water-resistant layer beneath roofing shingles. CertainTeed manufactures the utility grade felt underlayments ShingleFelt 30 and the fiber glass-reinforced felt underlayment Roofers Select. We also market a high performance synthetic underlayment called DiamondDeck. Waterproofing shingle underlayments prevent leaks from ice dams and wind-driven rain in vulnerable areas. CertainTeed manufactures the product WinterGuard. Accessory Products
  • Hip and Ridge

    Accessory shingles are used to finish the hips and ridges of a residential roof and carry the same warranty as the shingles they are applied over. There are a number of options designed to complement the appearance of shingles while providing the same level of protection and durability. CertainTeed manufactures hip and ridge accessories under the product names ShadowRidge and Mountain Ridge.
  • Proper Attic Ventilation

    Proper attic ventilation systems allow a continuous flow of outside air through the attic which creates cooler attics in the summer and drier attics in the winter. It consists of a balanced system between air intake (at your eaves or soffits) and air exhaust (at or near your roof ridge). CertainTeed offers Ridge Vent, Rolled Ridge Vent, Static Vents, and Intake Vent products to meet a variety of ventialtion needs.

TRADITIONAL

Traditional Shingles are the original and the most basic of roofing shingles available in the industry. Strip Shingles are denoted by the fact that they are single layered roofing shingles that are generally designed to look like slate. Strip Roofing Shingles have a very flat appearance on the roof line and are typically the lightest weight roofing shingles available in the market.

DESIGNER

Designer Shingles are now the predominant roofing shingles installed in North America. These products are manufactured as dual layered products (or multi-layered in the case of CertainTeeds tri-laminate technology) and provide a thicker and richer appearance on the roof (a multi-dimensional look).

LUXURY

Luxury Shingles are usually described as laminated shingles that have a differentiated appearance or functionality from traditional Dimensional Roofing Shingles. These products may have designs that mimic old-world roofing shingles, like natural slate or natural shake roofing shingles.
