Hi all. First post here, and I hope this has not been asked before.
I’m having a new roof put on my 29 year old 1.5 story Cape style house
I’m figuring its about 39 squares of coverage. I am leaning towards the certainteed landmark pro.
I stumbled on to the CT NorthGate shingle. I like the idea of the SBS modified shingle for its durability. I live in northern Connecticut, and while we do get hail, its nothing like colorado, so my primary purpose for choosing this is not the impact resistance, but again, more for its general increased durability.
I will call the insurance co though and see if a discount for the class 4 rating would be offered.
My roofing contractor is not pushing this shingle by any means. He actually says he would put on regular landmarks on his house, as he is not a fan of the high definition color of the landmark pro. (Or Northgate).
I’m looking at it possibly from a resale standpoint when I sell the house eventually. (And again, maybe an insurance discount?).
I’m 59, so landmark, pro, or northgate shingles probably will be good enough from a longevity standpoint.
The roofer wants another $2600. for the northgate shingle over the pro. Thoughts?. Go with the landmark pro?
