CertainTeed Asphalt Shingles
Whether building a new home, renovating an existing one, or simply replacing an old roof, choosing the right roofing solution is one of the most important decisions to be made. Viking CertainTeed Asphalt Shingles are the superior pitched roofing solution.
Asphalt shingles are individual bituminous sheets (usually 915mm long), nailed on top of a timber-sarked roof substrate with either a layer of bitumen felt or self-adhering membrane in-between. The ‘shingled’ (overlapped) method of shingle installation, provides maximum watershed and the ridge-vent system on the roof’s apex ensures the building is adequately ventilated.
Viking’s CertainTeed Asphalt shingles are composed of a strong fibre-glass mat base. Asphalt is applied over this and ceramic-coated mineral granules are embedded in the water-resistant asphalt. These ceramic granules provide UV resistance and come in a wide colour range. CertainTeed asphalt shingles have proven their durability by withstanding extreme conditions in New Zealand and the Pacific Islands over the last 25 years.
