The heavier TL series offers a lifetime warranty. The unique two-tabbed design and thicker construction gives these shingles the sculpted appearance of random-cut cedar shingles or shakes. The Landmark Solaris line is Energy Star rated.
Landmark shingles are a heavy, durable shingle with resistance to algae growth and high winds, an excellent choice for most roofing applications.
A heavier construction than most, top line Landmark products are more expensive than average asphalt shingles but remain less expensive than cedar shakes, metal, tile, or slate roofing.

Landmark shingles can be installed on any clean, solid roof decking. Installation over a single layer of old roofing must include removal of buckled, uneven material. Special designs must be installed as per manufacturer’s instructions.
As a heavier, thicker shingle with built-in algae resistance, Class A fire rating, and high wind resistance, Landmark shingles offer higher durability than average asphalt products.
The unique two-tab random cut design of Landmark shingles offers a beautiful emulation of cedar shakes and shingles. A wide selection of colours assures high curb appeal for any roof.
Landmark shingles are covered by CertainTeed’s 10-year right start coverage and warranty of 30 to 50 years, depending upon the product chosen. The top TL series carries a limited warranty for the lifetime of the owner. Coverage for algae and wind damage varies with the product.
