As a roofing contractor in Colorado Springs, we can install shingle products from a number of different manufacturers such as CertainTeed, Tamko, Owens-Corning, and GAF. To make the decision process easier for our clients, for standard installations we have settled on two of these major brands, CertainTeed and Tamko. Each shingle product and manufacturer has its specific advantages and features which prompts our recommendations of them to our clients. If you prefer the higher-end, wood-shake look in an asphalt, laminated shingle, we recommend CertainTeed Presidential line.
From a 350 year-old company, CertainTeed Roofing offers a wide array of residential roofing shingle options with profiles that are as beautiful as they are durable. Our designer, luxury and traditional shingle offerings display the textures, colors and style that today’s homeowners demand.
You will get a roof that is made from the highest quality roofing materials and backed by a strong warranty program. It is our promise to you. Quality made certain; Satisfaction guaranteed.
Perhaps the benefit of Tamko’s product that attracts our attention most is their warranty. All of the major manufacturers offer a shingle with a Lifetime Warranty (normally 50 years), but have a full coverage period of 10 years and a pro-rating after that. While Tamko’s Heritage only has a 30 year warranty, it’s full coverage period is 15 years.
In order to achieve a 130 MPH wind warranty for their shingle, Owens-Corning installed their SureNail Technology into every shingle. As their website says, SureNail is a “tough, woven engineered reinforcing fabric in the nailing area.” This material is so tough that it resists tearing.
