CertainTeed Roofing Introduces Patriot™— A Shingle Featuring Exceptional Looks and Durability at an Exceptional Value

(Valley Forge, Pa.) – CertainTeed introduces its newest product, Patriot™, a metric asphalt roofing shingle – combining exceptional durability, value and curb appeal.  Patriot features intricate color blend drops combined with intermittent shadow lines offering rich, aesthetic appeal that homeowners have grown to expect in quality asphalt roofing shingles. For contractors and builders, the shingles offer an easy-to-install roofing solution that is ideal for projects where high-performing products are called for at an economical price.

“CertainTeed offers a wide selection of quality shingles in order to meet the needs of a wide array of roofing projects,” says Bob Gardiner, vice president of marketing for CertainTeed Roofing.  “Patriot is a testament to that — providing distinct looks and performance while keeping the growing number of consumers in mind that want the very most for their money.”

It is offered in a popular six-color palette that includes Shadow Black, Weathered Wood, Driftwood, Colonial Slate, Graystone and Prairie Wood. Patriot features 13-1/4 inch by 39-3/8 inch dimensions with 5-5/8 inch exposure and is ideal for both residential and commercial steep-slope applications.

Backed by CertainTeed’s legacy of quality and innovation, as well as a 30-year limited transferable warranty against manufacturing defects, Patriot also includes a 10-year, 110-mile per hour wind-resistance warranty. In addition, 8-year SureStart™ protection covers 100 percent of replacement and labor costs due to the unlikely event of a manufacturing defect. All Patriot shingles feature algae resistance and 10-year StreakFighter™ coverage, for protection against staining or discoloration caused by airborne algae growth.

Patriot is currently available in Ontario, Canada and the U.S. Lake Central region, which includes Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Western New York, Western Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
