Beautiful new Houston roof replacement with CertainTeed Shingles

How Long Houston Roof Shingles Last

Houston roofing materials have different lifespans and warranties, and at Blue Ribbon Roofing, we choose only the highest quality shingles to ensure your home is effectively protected from the elements for years longer than those offered by other Houston roofing companies. Given that Southeast Texas frequently sees damaging weather events like hurricanes, severe thunderstorms, and strong winds, it’s imperative that you choose roof shingles that are built to last. We proudly offer CertainTeed roofing shingles for a number of reasons, which are outlined in this article.

Shingle Lifespan Explained

A shingle’s lifespan depends on a number of factors, most impactful of which is its material. Traditional 3-tab asphalt shingles last around 20 years, while higher-quality architectural or engineered shingles can last significantly longer, sometimes 50 years or more. CertainTeed’s Landmark line features the heaviest shingle in its class and comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty. Thanks to the use of more asphalt, CertainTeed’s architectural shingles carry a 110 mph wind warranty, which is why we use their pre-cut starter shingles on every Houston roof replacement project that we complete.

Blue Ribbon Roofing Installs CertainTeed Roof Shingles

As a roofer accredited by CertainTeed, we are proud to install their roofs for the following reasons:

  • Shingle Weight: CertainTeed shingles are heavier than other products on the market, which means they’re better constructed to withstand damage.
  • Proven Protection: CertainTeed Roofing has been manufacturing quality roofing shingles for 40 years, which is no small feat in a competitive roofing industry. Only the highest quality products can build that kind of longevity in a competitive roofing industry.
  • Third-Party Verification: Underwriters Laboratory, an independent safety certification organization, verifies their products meet all wind test Class H standards, which measure tear strength, wind pull resistance, and wind uplift. 
  • Top Rated: CertainTeed shingles are regularly rated as the top choice of most roofing surveys and have been selected as a “Best Buy” product for Consumer Magazine for two years running.
  • Complete Coverage: One of the most important reasons we chose CertainTeed shingles to be a part of our product line is because they come with an enhanced lifetime warranty.
