"Warning Do not use Certainteed Shingles."
After the last storm rolled through our area in September of 2017. I had call my insurance company out to look at a leak that happened in the storm. Storm winds did not exceed 70mph in this area. The roof had just been replaced 3 years ago. Insurance company came out to look at the leak and informed in their inspection that the shingles had failed and I needed a new roof. I have lived in this area for almost 30 years and have been through many storms and never had a leak. After having an inspector look at the roof as well, he informed me of the same as the ins company and that there was no adhesive on the tabs of the shingles and the next storm I will have blow off. Do not purchase these shingles. Roofers have told me that they have had to replace other roofs in the area with the same problem and they no longer will use Certainteed shingles for their jobs. I am now in litigation.

"Certainteed warranty is worthless."
I had a new home built by well known contractor after 9 years shingles have granular lost and need replaced. After submitting claim and providing all the correct pictures and information I was declined by certainteed because I had a decided to have a living trust made which changed the title of my home. Certainteed says more than two title changes voids the warranty even though I'm the original owner. This is their way of getting out of replacing shingles that are under warranty. So be warned don't purchase their products.

13 years ago I had 40 year CertainTeed AR shingles placed on my new built home. Horrible customer service. Horrible quality as my insurance agent came out after 40 mile an hour storm and said my shingles not only did not meet the 80 mile per hour rating but the shingles were brittle and very dry. Cracking and breaking were constant after 10 years. You think you are getting better quality on 40 years but it's not true. If you have this company make sure you buy many back up bundles in case they discontinue the shingle Luke they did mine after 10 years. Do not buy this company. My roofers that did the estimate said to stay away from this companies products. Ed Owens homeowner. Call me and I can tell you the horror story that's costing me 15,000 after 13 years.

"Non existent customer service/bad product"
Within a few years of the new roof installed shingles blew off whenever we experienced a strong wind. The first 2 times we blamed it on a fluke. The roof is guaranteed for 110mph wind, which we have never experienced, yet shingles continue to come off. The roof was installed during new construction by a reputable contractor who had been in business 50+ years. The only thing certain about Certainteed is poor customer service, they do not stand behind products, and complete run arounds. Maybe my husband has been to much of a gentleman when dealing with various reps and the presidentís secretary because no one has been responsive. Unless you want grief, my recommendation is to use a different manufacturer.

"Worthless fiberglass shingles"
New house 2005. Builder used CertainTeed landmark 30 year fiberglass shingles. 12 years later we have experienced advanced granular loss. CertainTeed only offered $923 on our warranty claim. Their shingles and warranty is a piece of crap. It is a shame that they are allowed to do this to people. Buy CertainTeed at you own risk. They do not stand by their product. I now understand why. Now I have to pay lots of $$$$ to replace our roof in not even 1/2 the life of the shingle.

Model: Landmark AR (algea resistent)
"Not truly algae resistent - Waste of money"
Had 50 squares (5000 sq ft of shingles installed) after removing cheap algae stained 20 year shingles. Purchased Landmark AR (30 yr architectural designed shingles), Atlantic Blue (94711). After 9 years they look like cheap 20 year algae stained shingles. Total rip off. If you pay to have someone remove a stained entire shingle (difficult to do) and then follow all of the ridiculous instructions of making a large box to ship it in with a series of pictures and original invoices, you may get a check for a 100 or 200 dollars. Truly pathetic - I will pay some guy to clean the shingles, probably using a copper sulfate formula that will kill algae, and warn others about Certain Teed's inferior shingles. Didn't do previous research first, but trusted a roofing contractor to pick the best - Now That was a BIG mistake.

"CertainTeed Does Not Care"
A certified CertainTeed installer put a new roof on our home. Immediately, the shingles blew in the wind and came off. The installer, Giles Construction LLC near Albany, NY "repaired" thiis all winter and spring. In late spring, we had a leak. CertainTeed sent a rep out to take shingles off the roof and test. The rep, Steven Hern, walked the roof and saw the atrocious installation - with visible nails everywhere, bulging shingles due to nails below not driven in completely, too short 1 inch drip edge installed whereas the original was 2 inches and CertainTeed specifies a mimimum of 2 inch drip edge. Despite all this, CertainTeed would not replace the shingles and CertainTeed continues to list this incompetent roofer on their website!

"Loose shingles and questionable install"
I bought my new MI Home in Sorrento Florida in December of 2016. My gutters have collected pounds of grit from the shingles in that time period. With the recent storm that came through our area with wind up to 70 mph, I had several (20) shingles blow off the roof. I had a GC/Roofer, come by to look at the damage. He was willing to fix the roof for $700.00. After we spoke about the repair, he advised that (80)% of the remaining shingles are loose and the amount of adhesive was almost non-existent. He said that it would be foolish to pay him and the rest of the roof either needs more adhesive or CertainTeed and the Alverez Roofing company based in Thonotassa Fl., need to fix or replace it. The Roofers just came to my house and after looking at roof, advised me to go the same route a lot you did by calling the warranty division and start a claim. It would be nice to actually have the Orlando or Tampa representative come to my home. A Lake Co. Fla., inspector came out and after looking at it said that there was not enough adhesive on the roof for it to bond correctly. After talking with (2) other neighbors that had the same issue, we realized that our three homes all closed at the same time and the batch we got had to be inferior, because the other (70) homes are fine. Hopefully I can change my rating and give both companies a Very Satisfied rating when this roof is fixed.

"Beware and Run"
After the hail storm in Houston we had our roof replaced by a company that used Certainteed shingles. The Hurricane revealed the poor quality of the material, it also revealed that the warranty is not worth the paper it is written on. This is a prime example of expensive is not always better. Run for your life!

Most worthless shingles ever made. Would not put on a dog house. After 7 years the grit started coming off. A sample was taken by Certain Tweed and said it was a defect. I complained to the BBB and with the help of PV roofing and Chessmar Homes I got a new roof with a different make of shingles.
