The CertainTeed Integrity Roof System

For residential applications, the CertainTeed Integrity Roof System is an excellent, long-lasting roofing solution. The six-part system does not assume anything. From underlayment to ridge, you get a complete answer to every troublesome aspect of your roof.

  1. Water and Ice Shield — WinterGuard® is the waterproofing underlayment. It prevents leaks from wind-driven rain and ice dams in vulnerable areas like valleys, near eaves, and along your roof edge.
  2. Underlayment — Roofers’ Select® or Diamond Deck® high-performance underlayment is a protective, water-resistant layer. It goes over the roof deck and a secondary barrier to prevent leaks.
  3. Starter Shingles — Designed to work specifically with each different type of CertainTeed shingle for maximum performance. They beef up the edge profile and get your roof off to the right start.
  4. CertainTeed Shingles — High-quality shingles available in a wide variety of styles and colors.
  5. Hip and Ridge Accessories — Special shingles used to finish the hips and ridges of the roof. Designed to complement the appearance of CertainTeed shingles.
  6. CertainTeed Ridge Vent — Get your most effective ventilation system by combining CertainTeed ridge vents with CertainTeed intake vents.

With an integrated, purpose-built system, your roof lasts longer, your house stays more comfortable, and the beauty of your roof is retained far into the future. Talk to your local, trustworthy CertainTeed roofer about the Integrity Roof System.

The CertainTeed Warranty

Warranties from roofing material companies usually only protect against manufacturers’ defects. Defects are problems from the assembly line not found until the shingles are on your roof. To be honest, with today’s sophisticated manufacturing processes, such errors are almost non-existent. “Lifetime” warranties are a lot safer for the companies.

What is really telling is if a manufacturer will back the installer. This warranty protects you, the Kansas City homeowner, against the costs of installation errors. CertainTeed will do that, though not for everyone. Only CertainTeed SELECT ShingleMasters earn this highest level of warranty.

CertainTeed warranties span three tiers:

  • 3-Star Coverage — 20 years, non-prorated protection, including materials and labor and tear-off costs
  • 4-Star Coverage — 50 years, non-prorated protection, materials and labor, tear-off and disposal costs
  • 5-Star Coverage — 50 years, non-prorated protection, materials and labor, tear-off, disposal costs. PLUS the installer’s workmanship is fully warranted

Most Kansas City homeowners will not remain in their home 50 years. In many ways, this makes the 5-star CertainTeed warranty a lifetime warranty. CertainTeed warranties are also transferable from the original owner to the next homeowner. This provides valuable protection and adds to resale value. The 5-star warranty also features protection for the original homeowner against installer error.
