1) Durability and Longevity
These roofing shingles are built for durability. They are made using materials that hold up well over time, even in harsh weather conditions. QuadraBond technology securely bonds the layers of the shingle, ensuring roofs withstand wind and weather while retaining their beauty and performance. With an industry-leading four points of adhesion and supported by CertainTeed's superior warranty, QuadraBond offers excellent quality and extra protection against shingle delamination.
The Pro Shingles also have a distinctive quality that sets them apart from many other types of shingles on the market - they are designed to resist algae growth. StreakFighter® technology offers dependable, long-lasting defense against unsightly black streaks caused by algae. StreakFighter, with copper-infused surface granules possessing natural anti-algae properties, prevents algae from forming on shingles. This superior protection helps roofs retain their color and enhance curb appeal for years to come.
3) High Grade Adhesive
CertaSeal is a high-quality adhesive made by blending asphalts and polymers. It seals shingles on the roof, protecting against wind uplift, shingle blow-off, and moisture infiltration. Unlike hard sealants that can dry out and crack, this adhesive remains flexible and can adapt to structural shifts caused by temperature and weather changes over time.
4) Easy Install
For years, the wide nailing area of NailTrak® has assisted contractors in quickly, accurately, and confidently installing these shingles. NailTrak eliminates any uncertainty with its three distinct lines, providing a generous nailing area and a smaller one for steep-slope applications. Guide nailing easily and effortlessly with these Landmark premium shingles.

With Max Def colors, these Landmark shingles bring a whole new dimension to shingles, with a richer blend of surface granules. This gives your roof a brighter, more vibrant, and more captivating look, with a deeper color. And it allows the natural beauty of your roof to truly shine through.
