Whether it’s due to storms, natural disasters, or simply time, replacing your roof can feel like an overwhelming decision. There are many options out there, and it can be hard to determine what type of roof is right for the conditions where you live. No matter what hazards threaten where you call home, these durable products from CertainTeed can offer the right long-term roofing solution.
NorthGate designer polymer-modified asphalt shingles from CertainTeed offer Class 4 impact resistance, unmatched weatherability, and impressive granule adhesion. With a wide palette of natural color options, these shingles combine the beauty of spilt wood shake with a level of protection and durability far exceeding that of real wood shake or standard asphalt shingles.
