Benefits of Asphalt Shingles

asphalt shingles come in a variety of colors for your roof


Without a doubt, the greatest benefits of asphalt shingles are their strength and longevity. This type of roofing tile is extremely difficult to destroy without excessive effort. Asphalt shingles hold up extremely well to hail, sleet, wind, and torrential rain. They are also fire-resistant, adding peace of mind to your purchase.

Many homeowners or business owners gravitate towards asphalt shingles due to their “clean” look. Because of their flat shape, these shingles create a smooth silhouette for any building.

Another notable feature of asphalt shingles is that they are easy to take care of. Overall, roofs covered in asphalt shingles can last a very long time. Unlike stone or clay shingles which may crack during storms, most asphalt shingles will last at least twenty years if properly installed.

Furthermore, the market for asphalt shingles has options for every project. There are choices that work well for both ends of the budget for roofing installation or repair. Because they last so long and need little to no upkeep, asphalt shingles are the smartest material investment for any roofing project. No matter what style of house you have, The Roof Guys offers a variety of classic colors and styles—the design of which will last as long as the shingles themselves.

CertainTeed Landmark® Series Asphalt Shingles

There are close to 20 potential color choices available for the Landmark® Series shingle line. From black to red tones, there is something to match every style of home!


Landmark® Series shingles are great for all types of weather, especially storms. The grading of these shingles can withstand wind speeds around 110 miles per hour. You can even choose to upgrade to a shingle that will hold up to 130 mph winds if you live in a particularly windy area.


In more humid climates, roofs can develop mold and mildew issues as a result of algae in the air. Landmark Series shingles, however, have what’s called StreakFighter technology to prevent this from happening.  They contain copper elements in the shingle material that block algae from accumulating on the roof.


One other factor that sets the CertainTeed Landmark® Series shingles apart from the competition is their weight. Landmark® Series shingles weigh 235 pounds per square (each square contains 65 shingles). In most cases, you can expect these high-quality shingles to be almost 100 pounds per square heavier than the average brand. This is due to the higher-density of asphalt in the materials used in CertainTeed shingles. Overall, this feature means that your shingles are less likely to fly off in high-speed winds.

Landmark Pro® Series Asphalt Shingles

CertainTeed’s Landmark Pro® Series offers all the amazing benefits of the standard series and more. With the Landmark Pro® Series, your shingle weight will be 250 pounds per square, 15 pounds heavier than the standard series.


You’ll also have a larger color palette to choose from with some more multi-dimensional options in the Max Def range. These choices, combined with the already-existing color options in the standard series, mean you have more than 30 total options available. This represents the most diverse color selection available on the market!


The NailTrak feature is one of the amazing perks of CertainTeed’s Landmark Pro® Series shingles. There are three major differences between NailTrak shingles and standard shingles:


  • First, these shingles have a nailing area that is three times greater than average. This ensures that we can install your roof quicker with greater accuracy.

  • Second, the bonding agent lies farther down the shingle so the nail gun can move faster without getting stuck.

  • Third, the Quadra-Bond technology contains not one, but four adhesive strips, which guarantees the strong placement and hold of your shingles.

  • Lastly, the CertainTeed Landmark Pro® Series boasts an extra five years of algae protection with the StreakFighter technology. The warranty will also cover not only the roofing installation materials and labor costs, but it will also cover the cost of shingle removal and disposal.
