Type of Roofing.
Asphalt roofing shingles, also known as composition shingles, are the most popular type of roofing and are made from fiberglass mats, which provide strength. Asphalt shingles are saturated in asphalt, making the roof waterproof. The top of the shingles are then coated in ceramic, which provides color to the shingles and provides UV resistance. Over time, these ceramic granules fall off due to normal wear and tear or with impacts from hail.
Metal roofs have a distinctive appearance that can look rustic, modern, or classic depending on the metal, its patina, or its paint. A wide variety of metals can be used, including steel, zinc, aluminum, and copper.
While slate tiles don’t match every home’s aesthetic, the material is beautiful, and it is one of the most durable roofing materials available. The unique stone comes in a variety of shades, including black, green, red, gray, and even purple. Unfortunately, it is notably difficult to work with, so you can’t hire just anyone to install it.
Made from the same materials as asphalt shingles, but commonly applied with a torch to melt it to the substrate. Modified bitumen is most commonly used for low-slope of flat roofs where water drainage is an issue.
Stone-coated metal roofing combines the industrial strength of steel with the elegance of traditional roofing materials like shingles, shakes, and tiles.
TPO Roofing falls under the single-ply membrane roofing category. Single-ply membranes are sheets of rubber and other synthetics that can be mechanically fastened, ballasted or chemically adhered to insulation creating a layer of protection on your commercial facility or other flat-roof project.
Components of a Residential Roof.
CertainTeed manufactures high-quality asphalt roofing shingles in a wide variety of styles and colors for residential applications. Asphalt roofing shingles are the most commonly used residential roofing products in the market. There are three major categories of roofing shingles including strip roofing shingles, dimensional roofing shingles and premium 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
RESIDENTIAL ROOFING PRODUCTS
Residential Roofing Products include those products necessary to provide a quality roofing system typically for a consumer’s home, garage or other residential applications. Residential roofing products are usually designed for steep slope application. Products can include roofing shingles, underlayments and accessory products.
Underlayments are designed for use on residential roof decks as a water-resistant layer beneath roofing shingles. CertainTeed manufactures the utility grade felt underlayments ShingleFelt® 30. We also market a high performance synthetic underlayment called DiamondDeck®. Waterproofing shingle underlayments prevent leaks from ice dams and wind-driven rain in vulnerable areas. CertainTeed manufactures the product WinterGuard®.
Starter shingles save application time. They are designed to work specifically with different 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.
Accessory shingles are used to finish the hips and ridges of a residential roof and carry the same warranty as the shingles they are applied over. There are a number of 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 ventialtion needs.
