Between myself and my employees we have installed thousands of jobs and have seen roofs from CertainTeed installed in the Late 70s. As a Roofer all these complains sound like these customers hired bad roofers. I Put the Landmark shingle on my Mothers and Brothers home. And the Independence on the cottage. There is going to be issues with any product but I am still to see one personally with the current CertainTeed line. Paolo Galloro green leaf roofing

"Terrible products, worse customer service"
We have had these shingles on for 3 years. We have had to have them patched 2 times previously. On the third time we lost over half of our roof, they are not willing to stand behind the warranty they claimed was so great. We followed all requests, they claim it's not on them. They aren't accepting the required 3 bids, even though they do not have any estimators in our area. Do not use these products, they will not stand behind the products.

"Shingles blew off"
Built our house in 2006. We have had nothing but problems. 20-30Mph gust winds and we have shingles blowing off. Sent a sample of the torn off shingles and their tests came back that they were no problems. So why then would my shingles that are rated for up to 70mph be blowing off at 30? Twelve times over the past 10 years we've had shingles come off. There's something Wrong! I would not recommend buying Certainteed shingles!

"Lost bitumen granules, cracking, and splitting."
My roof is now 9 years old ago installed with 30 year warranty "Presidential" Composite Shingles. The shingles has lost much of their bitumen granules and in a number of spots, the fiberglass is now showing. Without the granule protection, the composite will dry and become brittle and crack under the sun. There are now 2 cracks or areas where the composite is splitting and many other spots where fiberglass is showing. I've just read the reviews on how to submit to Certainteed for warranty and I'm not going to increase my chances of leaks by taking the shingles off for a sample to send. My estimate is that this roof will last another 7-10 years before risk of water penetration if I don't do anything. I will be doing spot repair and maintenance by gluing down more granules to make the roof last longer. In short, this is crap product and I will not buy shingles from Certainteed again! (And check product reviews before agreeing to the product... Don't let the words Presidential and Warranty fool you).

"Warning! Defective product warning. Class action!"
Certainteed defective fiberglass shingles failed after 5 years. Excessive granular loss and white fiberglass patches where the basecoat of the shingle is showing. Have to re-roof after we trusted CertainTeed. Contact me for class action investigation.

"Certainteed Class Action"
Customers of "any" CertainTeed fiberglass shingles. My wife and I are documenting a data base of CertainTeed customers who have been wronged and betrayed by this company. Those customers who would be willing to participate in a class action. Specifically if you have any 30 year shingle that has to be replaced due to defective product manufacturing. I have a roof with Certainteed Landmark fiberglass shingles. My roof went defective at the 5 year mark. Excessive granular loss and patches of white fiberglass base showing throughout the entire roof area. Please provide your e-mail or mail a brief description of your loss. I represent no affiliation with CertainTeed just mis-treated consumers. Thank you! Davejaenicke@Q.com or Dave Jaenicke - P.O. box 924 - yelm, wa 98597

We had Certainteed shingles put on our house 9 years ago. We started losing pieces of the shingles and they were flapping on the roof because they never sealed down. We went through the whole process of pictures, sending shingles to them, getting a quote. They tell us the shingles were tested in their lab and they did seal down and that they wouldn't be allowing any monies to us.. I have had 3 roofers look at it and they all say the shingles are cracking and curling. Today we had high winds and they are flapping so badly it sounds like people walking on the roof.. There are whole shingles and pieces lying all around on the ground. The whole shingles have cracks all over them. This is ridiculous for a company not to stand behind their products. These are suppose to b 30 year shingles,now we have to pay for a whole new roof of close to 15,000.00. I wouldn't recommend them at all.

"Very poor quality"
I had two roofers check my roof this summer and both commented about the cracking shingles. They both said they were CertainTeed and were of a poor quality. When I saw upclose pictures of my roof (it's a high roof), I was shocked with how cracked and worn the shingles looked since the house was only 10 years old. I contacted CertainTeed warranty services and of course they say that the shingles are no longer under warranty. Way to not stand by your product! You made a bad product, and now you won't pay to fix it.

"Sounds to me like installation problems, not the shingle"
Certainteed architectural shingles are what we used and we made sure we went with a reputable roofing company with A+ ratings. We couldn't be happier! I have been around construction all of my life and the majority of the low ratings I see on here are clearly from incorrect installation. Products are designed to be installed a certain way and if you go with the guys who claim to know alot about a product but don't know the fundamentals of installation chances are things will go wrong no matter which brand you use. Keep in mind the warranties are only 100% when using a certified and knowledgeable roofer.

"Color don't match samples or literature."
Selected the Certainteed Highland Slate shingles in Fieldstone for our new home. From the sample board and the brochures in looked like it was a dark gray roof with a little purple or burgundy and some slate gray- green. Went over to see how the job was going and to our horror discovered we had a green roof! Still waiting to hear from the Certainteed rep. I want this replaced with a gray roof like we wanted. CertainTeed's promotional info definitely misrepresented the product in this case. Since the house style is a Gothic Tudor / Storybook style the roof is a predominant feature and this is ruining the look we were going for.
