CertainTeed has been the trusted roofing manufacturer for decades. As such, they are always revolutionizing their product line to offer the best materials to both homeowners and contractors. The Northgate shingle is a perfect example. This heavy-duty shingles is perfect for homes located in high wind areas, providing 40% more tear strength and nail pull resistance, compared to the traditional architectural shingle. This added strength comes from the use of SBS, or styrene-butadiene-styrene, blending asphalt with a polymer, creating a more flexible, thermal resistance, and crack resistant shingle. SBS shingles are also easier to install in cold temperatures, as they will bend but never break. Northgate SBS shingles pass a flexibility test at 0 degrees Fahrenheit, allowing for year-round installation without shrinkage. SBS also provides 15% better granule adhesion which is one of the key components in protecting the shingle against the elements. So what are you waiting for? If you live in an area that experiences high winds and frezzing temperatures, this is the perfect shingle for you! CertainTeed offers a wide variety of color options, catering to any design aesthetic.
