As such, it involves decisions that will impact not only the homeowner’s budget but also the curb appeal of the residence and the safety and security of the whole family. That is why it becomes so important to make the right decisions when the time comes to install a new roof.

And did you know that CertainTeed makes products for every layer?
When your roof has products that are designed to work well together, you can be sure that your roof will not have any issues that will require future fixes. And you can also be confident that products that work well together will also result in a roof that will be water-tight, safe and long-lasting. A great investment all around.
Starting with the underlayment, CertainTeed offers two options:
- WinterGuard – A waterproof barrier that is generally installed in places where extra protection is needed due to possible large amounts of water flowing. These are the areas where ice dams are most likely to be created during winter months.
- DiamondDeck – A water-resistant synthetic barrier. Your CertainTeed installer will be able to determine which underlayment your roof will need or if a combination of both options will offer your home the best protection from severe weather.
The eaves get an extra layer of protection to avoid damage from wind-driven rain or ice when these flat shingles are installed along the eaves.
