Three weeks after the first historic hail storm of the season, I am still covering the field between Denver and Johnstown – assessing roofing shingles damage and working with insurance adjusters on behalf of homeowners.
In light of all of this, I thought I would post some thoughts on a brand of shingles I highly recommend – CertainTeed Impact Resistant Shingles. You have to appreciate the twist on their tag line: “The Calm During the Storm” – because that is the kind of high level protection this type of shingle offers.
CertainTeed is the leading brand of exterior and interior building products in North America. The diverse brand includes roofing, siding, fencing, decking, railing, trim, insulation, gypsum and ceilings. Located in Pennsylvania, the company has shaped the building products industry through the “responsible development of innovative and sustainable building products” for the past 100 years.
Impact Resistant Shingles Provides Strength and Style
It’s nice to be able to tell homeowners that when choosing this high impact roof shingle, they will not have to compromise on style. CertainTeed’s Impact Resistant shingles maintain beauty and curb appeal while offering the highest impact resistant rating available. The image in this post is taken by the company drone of a roof install using CertainTeed’s Northgate SBS shingle on a historic Victorian home in Berthoud, CO.
The Shingle that Bends but Never Breaks
Northgate SBS shingles are made from a polymer that stands up to not only hail but the extreme fluctuating temperatures experienced in Colorado. Each shingle has an added fiberglass backing that provides an enhanced level of impact resistant protection. The shingles have been tested and proven to withstand the force of a 2-inch steel ball dropped from 20 feet without cracking.
The polymer element of the shingle allows for greater flexibility to resist cracking even in extreme cold weather. Which means that the roof can be applied year-round. The shingles are comprised of a granule adhesion – one of the key components for roof protection in extreme climate change.
There are none better in the industry. CertainTeed offers not only a 70 mph warranty for certain products – but there is also a 15 year warranty for winds up to 110 mph with an upgrade to 130 mph. Whichever way you cut it – the homeowner and their roof are not only covered- they are protected.
Quality Products Installed By A Qualified Contractor

We believe in perfection – and choose the best products on the market – while keeping in budget.
