Headquartered in Valley Forge, PA, CertainTeed is a leading North American manufacturer of building materials and specializes in the production of high quality roofing and other materials including vinyl siding, trim, fence, railing, decking, insulation, gypsum, and ceiling products.
CertainTeed manufactures a variety of high quality, durable asphalt roofing systems. Asphalt roofing shingles are the most commonly used covering on residential properties in the market. Asphalt’s primary purpose in roofing shingles is to serve as a waterproofing agent. Asphalt also holds the granules in place and adds to the overall strength of the roofing shingle. The best asphalt will stay flexible and will not dry out or become hard or brittle for the expected life of the roofing shingle.
Strip asphalt roofing shingles are single-layered asphalt roofing shingles typically designed to look like slate. Strip roofing shingles are usually the lightest weight asphalt roofing shingles available in the market. Built on a tough fiberglass base, each shingle provides resistance to blow-off and tearing.
Dimensional asphalt roofing shingles are manufactured as multi-layered products and provide a thicker and richer appearance on the roof (a multi-dimensional look). Dimensional roofing shingles typically are heavier weight than strip roofing shingles and usually have improved warranty protections, which can range from 30-years to Lifetime.
Premium asphalt roofing shingles are usually described as laminated shingles that have a differentiated appearance or functionality from traditional dimensional asphalt roofing shingles. These products may have designs that mimic “old-world” roofing shingles, like natural slate or natural shake roofing shingles. CertainTeed’s Grand Manor™, Presidential Shake™ and Centennial Slate™ shingles are prime examples of premium roofing shingles that provide an enhanced aesthetic appeal.

Unmatched beauty. Although there are some maintenance challenges, it's hard to beat the appearance of wood shingles.
Wood is another common material for residential shingled roofs. Wood shingles have a beautiful finished appearance and generally provide very good durability. Wood shingles are cut with a saw and have a consistent thickness and shape, while wood shakes are split and are usually thicker and rougher. Either option can be used depending on the look you want to achieve and the style of your home.
While wood shingles and shakes are a great roofing material, there are a couple drawbacks. These roofs can be expensive to install, and they will require more maintenance than an asphalt shingle roof. However, the benefits of wood shingles still make them a popular choice -- especially for historic homes.
