Asphalt roof shingles


I'm just starting to research asphalt roof shingles to replace an old wood shingle roof. I have gotten a couple quotes: one using CertainTeed Landmark Series shingles and the other using Ownes Corning Oakridge shingles. I live in So. Cal. and was wondering which would be a better material to use.

Asphalt roof shingles


The one who uses the better craftsmanship and labor.

The rest is virtually irrelevent. The main difference in companies is the labor they use and how talented they are.

MJW is right on the money.,But since you are asking,,,I would call your building Department to make sure that you are not required to install a certain type of material for your region.

I would then call several suppliers.I would find out what material is the most common followed by an honest reply from the supplier about which materials have had the most problems in your area.

The inquiry to your building department pertaining to material requirements is because several areas around my location require certain shingle manufactures,grade,quality and colors.

If I were to choose between Certainteed and O.C,,I would choose Certainteed any day of the week over O.C,,,but that's my opinion.

X2 on the Certainteeds. But it's mainly because the local rep is much more responsive than the reps for other brands, not so much the material.
