What are they made of?

Asphalt shingles fuse a fiberglass base mat with a waterproof coat of asphalt. UV resistant granules, a combination of mineral, brick, or ceramic, are then pressed into the asphalt which protects the asphalt from discoloration. We offer asphalt shingles for both residential and commercial applications which vary from 230 to 480 pounds per square. View all our asphalt style offerings and color swatches.

Asphalt shingles are the best they've ever been. Our CertainTeed shingles come with a limited lifetime warranty, often referred to as a free 50 year warranty, and we stamp our seal of professional installation with an unprecedented 50 Year workmanship warranty.
