CertainTeed Roofing Technologies
Quality & Improvement Go Hand-In-Hand
What makes our shingles the best on the market? It's simple: every product we produce is backed by 100+ years of manufacturing excellence. From product design and engineering, all the way through to final delivery, we remain dedicated to providing the industry with reliable, high-quality roofing that offers long-term beauty and value.
We are also constantly evolving – studying and testing products, responding to the wants and needs of our customers, and experimenting with new ideas and materials – so that no matter what the job calls for, you can trust the CertainTeed brand to deliver state-of-the-art performance.
As a result of our dedication to product improvements and manufacturing excellence, we've developed numerous valuable technologies that help contractors and homeowners build better, safer, more comfortable homes.
ClimateFlex technology combines our durable roofing asphalt with the performance benefits of rubberizing polymers. This results in impact-resistant shingles that offer an industry-leading Class 4 rating (UL Classified to UL 2218) for protection against hail damage and hail impact, as well as superior surface granule adhesion and all-weather performance that protects year round in almost any climate or condition.
In addition to protecting your home from hail storms, impact-resistant asphalt shingles (also known as IR shingles) may also save you on insurance premiums. Contact your insurance carrier to see if they provide a discount for owning an impact-resistant roof. The rubberizing aspects of ClimateFlex technology also provide cold-weather-friendly pliability, allowing contractors to handle and install ClimateFlex shingles in temperatures that turn standard shingles stiff and brittle.
ClimateFlex impact-resistant shingles include Landmark® ClimateFlex and NorthGate ClimateFlex® (subject to regional availability).
Solaris® Cool Roof
Solaris Cool Roof technology is a sustainable solution that applies energy-saving performance to our most popular shingle brands. Featuring a special granule surface blend that can reflect up to 27 percent of solar heat, they help reduce roof temperatures and heat transfer into living spaces, lessening the workloads of air conditioning system to save on energy costs.
Solaris Cool Roof shingles are available in multiple profiles – including our popular Landmark® and Presidential Shake® series – and include numerous rich and authentic color options, including darker brown, gray, and black hues.
In addition to offering homeowners a variety of beautiful, classic looks, Solaris Cool Roof products can be used to comply with California Title 24, Part 6, Cool Roof requirements (per the California Cool Roof Rating Council), and may qualify for LEED certification, federal tax credits, or other green building programs.

StreakFighter technology provides reliable, long-term protection against the unsightly black streaks caused by algae formation. Featuring copper-infused surface granules that possess natural anti-algae properties, StreakFighter works to prevent algae from taking hold on shingles - helping roofs maintain their beauty and color, and helping homeowners avoid expensive algae cleaning or time-consuming roof maintenance.
StreakFighter protection is backed by an industry-leading warranty, and is a standard feature on CertainTeed asphalt shingles sold in regions where the algae that causes black streaking is prominent.

Since its introduction in 2004, the NailTrak wide nailing area has helped contractors install with speed, accuracy, and confidence. Now NailTrak is better than ever – with brighter nailing lines that remain highly visible from sunup to sundown.
NailTrak removes the guesswork with three separately defined lines, presenting a large area to guide your nailing and a smaller area for extreme steep-slope applications. It is standard feature on most CertainTeed designer shingles, including our popular Landmark® and Landmark® PRO brands.

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.
Designed to be fast activating after installation, CertaSeal is one of our most tried-and-true technologies – with a 20-year track record of protecting homes – and is a standard feature on all CertainTeed shingles.
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, all while protecting homes from wind and wet weather year round.
