Re: Which brand shingles do you install & why?


I like GAF and OC. I tried that Atlas Class IV w/SBS technology a few times and it was terrible about marking during installs; easy to sell, but looked terrible as a finished product. Maybe install crews, maybe 100+ degree heat. My 2 cents.

Additionally, do your shingle wrappers have the Miami-Dade product approval logo on them?

Owens corning mostly in Colorado. Installed a lot of malarkey shingles in 2007 and 2008. Getting a lot of calls for blistering. Malarkey has ignored us on past three. This week we will see if they finally come through. When they don't blister they are the best asphalt class 4 I have seen. They have made my company look bad though not fixing roofs with blistering.

Since we are CertainTeed Master Select we use mainly CertainTeed. Good shingles no problems. Many HOA's around here require CT Presidential TL or Shake.

Re: Which brand shingles do you install & why?


The company I work for installs GAF products. I think they install those just cuz. They are an "elite installer" so they get the lifetime warranty program. I think the shingles are crap, but better than OC, Tamko, and IKO.

When I start my own business I will only install Certainteed shingles unless someone absolutely won't upgrade to dimensional from 3 tab, then I'll install the cheapest 3 tab I can find and they'll have to live with a cheap roof.
