Certainteed XT25 Shingle Reviews – Entry Level Three Tab

Certainteed XT25 Shingle Review
2.2 / 5 Roofer Rating
{{ reviewsOverall }} / 5 Homeowner Rating (2 votes)
These shingles are lightweight and easy to handle. Installers having been using this style of shingle for decades so finding a qualified installer should not be a problem. Most contractors will simply cut off the "tab" portion of the shingle and use the remainder for the starter strip which the first course of shingles lays down to. Also, you can cut the shingles in thirds to use as your cap shingles at the peek of the roof.
Longevity is lacking due to their lighter weight and design. Wind uplift warranty on these shingles is only 60mph and 5 Years which is less than half the warranty offered on many dimensional shingles. Quickly becoming obsolete as architectural shingles are dominating the market at a very competitive price point.
Capable and popular 3-Tab shingle. Fast loosing ground to popular dimensional shingles. Seen on older houses all across the nation so still needed for repairs.

Certainteed XT 25 Reviews

A popular three tab shingle:  Three tab shingles are quickly becoming obsolete.  With the increasing popularity of dimensional shingle such as the Landmark series for Certainteed, or the Oakridge/Duration from Owens Corning three tabs have decreased in use.  Given the name because each individual shingle has 3 tabs.  They have a flatter visual appearance and in general don’t last quite as long as architectural s.
