J & J Roofing works with CertainTeed roofing shingles because of the nice variety of styles and color choices offered as well as the warranty from the manufacturer. Depending on the CertainTeed shingles used for a roof installation, the warranty ranges from 15-years to a lifetime. CertainTeed roofing shingles come in three basic types, which are strip shingles, dimensional shingles, and luxury shingles.

Strip Shingles

Strip shingles are very popular and used extensively in new home construction. Many know them as “three-tab” shingles because of their design. They are usually installed as a single layer to give the appearance of a slate roof. A roof with strip shingles has a flat appearance. Strip singles are good to install in areas with heavy snow because they are the lightest weight when compared to other styles. Strip shingles last a long time and replacing damaged ones to make roof repairs is fairly easy.

Dimensional Shingles

Dimensional shingles are also called architectural laminated shingles because they have dual layers or multi-layers. This gives them a three-dimensional characteristic, which creates beautiful color shades and distinctive shadows making the roofing very attractive. These shingles appear thicker than strip shingles and are heavier in weight. Because of the increased thickness, warranty periods for these shingles are longer than strip shingles. CertainTeed uses a tri-laminate technology to produce dimensional shingles that have a rich multi-dimensional appearance.

Luxury Shingles

CertainTeed has a luxury line of roofing shingles that have the appearance of European “old-world” styles such as naturally-looking shake and slate roofing. These luxury shingles are also called premium shingles. Not only do these shingles have a nice look, they also are engineered for better functionality, which includes having stronger resistance to impacts and better reflectivity to reduce solar damage and heat. Increased reflectivity helps lower the energy costs needed to keep a home cool during hot summers.

Popular Styles

J & J Roofing works with the popular styles of CertainTeed shingles that include Grand Manor, Belmont, and the Landmark series. All the different styles come in a wonderful selection of color choices. The Grand Manor style looks like slate. The Belmont style is good for roofs with a very steep slope. The Landmark style looks like wood shake.
