Asphalt shingles have been around for more than a century, and in that time they’ve become wildly popular for a reason. These reliable roofing shingles are not only attractive but they’re also some of the most high-performance shingles you can put on your home. Asphalt shingles offer a comparatively affordable option that look great on just about any home.

When it comes to choosing the right asphalt shingles for your home, you want a roof that’s going to be incredibly durable and high-performing through the years. At J&J Roofing in Roseville, Michigan, our residential roofing contractors are certified CertainTeed ShingleMasters, which means we’re the best in the business. Here are a few things you should consider when you’re trying to choose the most durable roof for your home:

Shingle Material and Weight

The first thing you need to know about asphalt shingles is that not all shingles are created equally. For some of the strong winds and intense rains we get in Michigan, you need a high-performance asphalt shingle with some weight to it.

The CertainTeed Landmark series is sturdier than many other asphalt shingles due to added weight. This is due to the addition of limestone, which reinforces the durability of CertainTeed shingles in comparison with other popular roofing lines. That extra weight also helps CertainTeed shingles stand up better to high winds.

We offer three styles of CertainTeed shingles

●        Landmark series

●        The Belmont series

●        The Grand Manor series

Reduced Granular Loss

Granular loss is a significant contributor when it comes to roof failure. The surface granules on an asphalt roof protect it from the UV radiation of the sun as well as moisture and extreme temperatures.

This important layer of protection shields the asphalt underneath them from damage, which means when they begin to shed, your roof’s structural integrity can begin to deteriorate rapidly. CertainTeed shingles offer some of the best protection from granular loss, which means the shingles underneath are far more durable than most other asphalt shingles.

The CertainTeed Difference

A strong and durable asphalt roof is more than just the sum of all its parts. A great asphalt roof is going to be built with the best methods in the industry so it is resistant to the damage of time. One of the reasons we partner with CertainTeed asphalt shingles is their CertainTeed ShingleMaster program.

All of our residential roofing contractors undergo extensive training to make sure they use only the best installation techniques. Our CertainTeed roofs also come with one of the most key features of a durable roof—a powerful and comprehensive warranty.
