CertainTeed XT 30 asphalt shingles

While the Landmark Premium shingles are more expensive than the XT 30 shingles, they offer a longer warranty. If you're on a limited budget, the XT 30 shingles offer high strength and a lower price tag.

Landmark Premium shingles are part of the Landmark product group, which also includes standard shingles, Pro shingles, and Architect shingles. The Landmark Premium shingles are designed for superior visual quality, making your roof look beautiful and textured. If you're interested in creating a distinctive look for your home or office, Landmark Premium shingles come in a variety of color options.

Landmark Premium shingle features:

  • Fiberglass base for longevity.
  • Strict dimensional tolerance for consistent appearance.

  • Water-resistant asphalt covering.

If you are planning to get a roofing estimate for Landmark Premium shingles, it is important to understand the limitations that affect the roofing cost. The shingles cannot safely be used on every roof. If you live in an area with potential ice buildup, you must take special precautions when laying shingles to prevent roof damage.

  • Landmark Premium shingle limitations:
  • Best when used with a slope greater than two inches per foot.
  • Lower-slope roofs require additional under-layering.
  • If ice is a problem, shingles require a special waterproof underlay.


XT 30 shingle features

If you are looking for a roof that has a long warranty and extra staying power, the CertainTeed XT 30 shingles may be the right solution. The XT 30 shingles are designed to last longer than other asphalt shingles, so your investment will last longer.

While the Landmark Premium shingles are rated at 300 pounds per square, the XT 30 shingles are rated at 215 pounds per square; so, while the XT 30 shingles are cheaper, they have a lower rating.
