Certainteed Independence Shingle Review

Unique Shake Look High End Option:  

Actually they call this a “shangle” but hey it looks like a fancy shingle to us. This is a product you will likely see on high property value homes given it’s higher price and unique look.  If you are looking for a shingle that will last a lifetime while adding a little extra flair this may be a good choice for your home. Embedded Copper granules in the roofs surface help prevent algae growth during at least the first ten years of life. Many people may have seen an earlier version of this shingle that was organic based and failed.  There is a large class action settlement for failures related to this and the current shingle on the marker does NOT have the same issues.
