NorthGate ClimateFlex designer shingles offer the beauty and dimensionality of wood shake roofing in the form of a durable, polymer-modified asphalt. This results in high-quality roofing that offers enhanced resistance to damaging hail and superior surface granule adhesion (compared to standard asphalt shingles), as well as all-weather performance that protects a home year-round in any climate.
The rubberizing aspects of ClimateFlex technology provide enhanced cold-weather pliability, allowing contractors to handle and install NorthGate ClimateFlex in low temperatures that make standard shingles stiff and brittle.

CertaSeal is a high-grade adhesive made from a proprietary blend of asphalts and polymers that seals shingles together on the roof to safeguard against wind uplift, shingle blow off, and moisture infiltration. Unlike harder sealants that can dry out and crack over time, it is designed to remain pliable and accommodate the slight structural shifts caused by years of temperature and weather changes.

NailTrak® wide nailing area has helped contractors install our shingles with speed, accuracy, and confidence for more than a decade. NailTrak removes the guesswork with three separately defined lines, presenting a large area to guide nailing and a smaller area for extreme steep-slope applications.
