What is the Best Asphalt Roof Shingle?

Sep 28, 2021

If you’re considering an asphalt shingle roofing system for your home, you’re far from alone. Asphalt shingles are the most commonly used roofing materials in the United States, largely because they make for a great all-around product that works well for all kinds of homes. But, as with any kind of mass-manufactured product, these shingles are not all of the same quality.  And with an investment as big as replacing the roof on your home, cutting corners on quality simply isn’t a good option for any homeowner. You can’t go wrong with CertainTeed’s shingles when you want a reliable asphalt roofing system for your home. CertainTeed, a leading manufacturer in the roofing industry, offers some of the best high-performance shingles on the market today.

How They’re Made

CertainTeed is at the forefront of roofing technology, manufacturing their shingles with many great features that extend their life and boost their ability to protect your home. These include:

  • Fiberglass bases and waterproof asphalt covering, which can also reflect UV rays and heat (though the latter is partly dependent on the shingles’ color, as darker shingles will naturally absorb more heat than lighter ones)
  • StreakFighter® technology that staves off algae growth (and has its own 15-year warranty)
  • Top-tier resistance to impact, fire, tearing, and high wind speeds

What’s more, CertainTeed offers a 10-year warranty on all of its asphalt roofing products.

At ALL-TIMATE ROOFING, we proudly install CertainTeed asphalt shingle roofing systems for our customers. What’s more, as a CertainTeed Select Shingle Master—a designation only 1% of roofing companies have—we can offer you an unbeatable 50-year warranty on our labor. We’re here to back up your investment in the best asphalt shingles with some of the best installation service around.
