Residential Asphalt Roofing Systems: Shingles

One page wouldn’t be enough to cover the many types of roofing and building materials made by CertainTeed Corporation. You can narrow down what you are looking for for your next roof by focusing on roofing shingles and roofing materials.

Our partnership with CertainTeed at Alpha Roofing is based on many factors. There are only two things that determine the length and quality of a shingle warranty. Manufacturer’s warranty for roofing materials are the best in the industry, according to CertainTeed. 

There are nearly 30 colors to choose from when it comes to the Landmark series. We may not have some in our region, so you will need to speak to your Alpha Roofing project manager to learn if they are available. Choosing CertainTeed Landmark shingles for your roof from Alpha Roofing will give you peace of mind. As far as weight is concerned, Landmark shingles are the heaviest on the market.

Benefits to Landmark Shingles

Wider Nail Line

Landmark shingles have had CertainTeed’s NailTrak system for over a decade. Landmark shingle installation companies have found the NailTrak system to be helpful because it makes the nailing area wider and stronger. The redesigned nailing area is 1-1/2” wide. As a result, crews are more efficient and more accurate when installing your shingles.

Better Algae Streak Fighting Properties

Everybody has seen it, whether on a neighbor’s roof or their own. The roofing shingles are stained with ugly dark streaks. In no doubt, this impacts the appearance of your home, not just for you but also for your neighbors. It would be impossible for us to own a home if we weren’t proud of it. 

A CertainTeed roofing shingle uses science to prevent this unsightly sight before it starts. To accomplish this feat, CertainTeed uses streak-fighting granular blends that include copper as a natural streak fighter. There is a mineral core in the CertainTeed shingles, followed by a copper layer, and finally a ceramic layer. On the CertainTeed website about algae-resistant technology, you can read more about how CertainTeed combats shingle algae.

Residential Asphalt Roofing Systems: ShadowRidge & MountainRidge Hip & Ridge Shingles

With ShadowRidge or MountainRidge true hip & ridge shingles, you can add some accent to your new roof while also upgrading the warranty on your new roof.

There are many cheap roofing companies who will not only cut corners by putting three-tab roofing shingles on your hips and ridges but also do it without ever telling you. It may seem strange to you that someone would do that and never say anything about it. Roofing manufacturers can offer you a wide array of roofing products, but many cheap roofers are not confident about showing them to you. There is a fear that if you get them, the job will cost more because you will want them. 

Shreveport & Bossier City’s best roofing contractors will explain why you need to upgrade your roof and show you all the available roofing products.

You can upgrade your roof’s warranty with ShadowRidge & MountainRidge hip & ridge shingles, which will also give your roof a nice higher profile while protecting it better.

The most common type of shingle used by cheap roofers is the 3-tab shingle. The problem begins with the fact that a 3-tab shingle was never designed to bend. Your roof deck should be flat when you lay down a 3-tab shingle. When you bend a 3-tab shingle, the matting or backing is cracked, and it’s just a matter of time before the shingle deteriorates and leaks.

You can get a detailed explanation of all these roofing issues from one of Alpha Roofing’s experienced project managers. You can count on Alpha Roofing to provide you with information about all roofing products available.

Low Slope & Flat Roof Areas

It’s common to find flat or low-slope roofs in patios, game rooms, and balconies of homes. There is also a CertainTeed product line for this part of your roof. 

Self-adhering Flintlastic SA is a low-slope roofing product made especially for these uses. Available in 10 colors, you’re sure to find a color that matches the rest of your home.


Residential Asphalt Roofing Systems: Integrity Roof System

When you install the integrity roof system from CertainTeed, you get long-lasting performance, great looks, and longer warranties, giving you the peace of mind, you need and deserve. 

The Integrity Roof System consists of 6-roofing components 

Component #1

Your first roofing component is your WinterGuard ice & water shield. All vulnerable areas, such as around plumbing pipe boots and in valleys, are protected by this self-adhesive barrier.

Component #2

The second roofing component is the CertainTeed Roof Runner synthetic felt. Adding this second layer of protection will ensure that your roofing shingles will not be penetrated by water in the future.


Component #3

The third roofing component is the CertainTeed starter shingles. Taking special care of this area of your roof is another important decision. Each rake and all eaves should be covered by starter shingles. As the first course of shingles will adhere to a proper starter shingle, the roof will be protected from wind-driven rain.

Component #4

Integrity Roof Systems begins with your roofing shingles, which are the first component of a roof system. Various types of roofing shingles are available from CertainTeed. There are three Landmark models: the Landmark, the Landmark Pro, and the Landmark Premium. You will find the most suitable shingles for your home’s newly installed roof.

Component #5

Hip and ridge shingles make up the fifth component of roofing. If you are looking for a lower profile hip and ridge shingle, CertainTeed offers Cedar Crest, or if you prefer a beefier appearance, ShadowRidge or MountainRidge. Choosing CertainTeed hip & ridge shingles will enhance the look and protection of your new roof.

Component #6

The sixth and final component is your attic ventilation. Your roofing system must have adequate attic ventilation. Your new roofing shingles will cook from the bottom up if you don’t have proper attic ventilation.
