GAF and Owens Corning have problems what about Certainteed?


#1

Owens Corning has a solid tar strip that I am worried will trap water. GAF seems to have a small nail coverage area. I don’t want to spend a ton of time lining up shingles with only a quarter inch overlap. What about Certainteed? Anything wrong with these. I’m looking for a install friendly shingle that will not cause problems. Does Certainteed have solid tar strips? I am looking to buy 50 year architectural shingles.

Consider either Certainteed Landmark Premium, Landmark TL or Timberline Ultra.


#3

GAF first choice Certainteed a close second. I also dont mind OC


#4

Tech question for the Pros :

Isnt it better to NOT have the solid strip due to the fact that any water penetration thru top course seam will get trapped on bottom course ??


#5

they should just make the shingles like the original timberline w/the male/female ends and that would eliminate the ugly seam,i think gaf`s sealant is better for expansion/contraction reasons thancertainteed or owens corning personally


#6

Are certainteed architectural shingles install friendly? I’m looking for a shingle that has a spotted tar strip, install friendly, and has high quality. Any lines of certainteed recommended.
