Understanding Your New Roof

​​​​Underlayments
High-performance underlayment (RoofRunner™) provides a water-resistant layer over the roof deck and a secondary barrier against leaks. Waterproofing shingle underlayment (WinterGuard®) prevents leaks from wind-driven rain and ice dams.


Roofing Shingles
Strip shingles are the most basic of residential roofing products available in the market. They are single layered roofing shingles that are generally designed to look like slate. CertainTeed manufactures strip shingles under the product names CT™ 20, XT™ 25, and XT™ 30.

Dimensional roofing shingles typically are heavier weight than strip roofing shingles. They are manufactured as dual-layered products or multi-layered in the case of CertainTeed’s tri-laminate technology. CertainTeed manufactures the Landmark® Series Roofing Shingle as an example of a dimensional roofing shingle.

Accessory Products

Hip and Ridge
Accessory shingles are used to finish the hips and ridges of a residential roof and carry the same warranty as to the shingles they are applied over. There are several options designed to complement the appearance of shingles while providing the same level of protection and durability. CertainTeed manufactures hip and ridge accessories under the product names ShadowRidge® and Mountain Ridge®.

Proper Attic Ventilation
Proper attic ventilation systems allow a continuous flow of outside air through the attic which creates cooler attics in the summer and drier attics in the winter. It consists of a balanced system between air intake (at your eaves or soffits) and air exhaust (at or near your roof ridge). CertainTeed offers Ridge Vent, Rolled Ridge Vent, Static Vents, and Intake Vent products to meet a variety of ventilation needs.    

Starter Shingles
Starter shingles save application time. They are designed to work specifically with assorted styles of shingles for consistent appearance and performance. CertainTeed manufactures starter shingles under the product names Swiftstart® to be used with the Landmark® series and High-Performance Starter to be used with Grand Manor®, Highland Slate®, and Hatteras® shingles.
