GAF is better than O.C.

Certainteed is the best. IKO is the worst.

Let me have another stab at the post.I would install either one if requested by my customers.O.C and GAF have the same installation specs as many other brands.

If I were to choose and those were the only 2 for choices I would choose O.C.The reasoning is the updated colors are very attractive IMO.

I do in fact provide the customer multiple sample boards.These sample boards are from Tamko,O.C,GAF Certainteed and Atlas.

I have not really seen any data that specifically states which is the better of the two.

Both shingles conform to ASTM and UL requirements.So it comes down to preference IMO.
