Understanding the CertainTeed Factory-Certified Warranty coverage:
Limited Lifetime Warranty
Skepticism is as common as a rainy day; the term ‘Limited Lifetime Warranty’ often raises eyebrows. It’s easy to dismiss it as just another sales pitch, especially regarding something as crucial as your new roof. However, CertainTeed flips the script with its warranty, which is not just a promise but a pact sealed with quality.
When installed by a CertainTeed credentialed contractor, this warranty covers defects in a way almost unheard of in the industry. It’s not just about fixing what’s broken; it’s about ensuring longevity and peace of mind. The SureStart PLUS, an extended warranty program, takes this commitment a notch higher, offering unparalleled protection for your new roof. This isn’t just a warranty; it’s a guardian for your home, standing watch to ensure your shelter remains steadfast.
In a world full of fine print and caveats, CertainTeed’s Limited Lifetime Warranty is a beacon of trust, ensuring that your roof is more than just a part of your house—it’s a part of your home.

Why You Need 4 Star Coverage, Not 5 Star:
You are probably wondering why we would recommend the 4-Star warranty over the 5-Star? Isn’t five always better than four?
In the case of CertainTeed’s shingle warranties, the 5-Star warranty is great, but it comes with a ton of stipulations.
- For one, the 5-Star warranty covers defects for labor only – the material warranty is the same for both the 4-Star and and 5-Star.
- Second, the 5-Star warranty requires significantly more workmanship regarding flashing around the roof, siding, etc. This means the roof installation is significantly pricier, and the roofing team must also peel back layers of soffit, siding, etc. to install flashing to meet the labor needs to qualify for the 5-star labor warrant.
- Top Dog Home Pro offers a 50-year labor warranty and a 200% increase on the 5-star labor warranty.
Essentially, when you get a new roof installed with Top Dog Home Pro and we use CertainTeed Shingles, you are getting the max product warranty with our 50 year labor warranty! A win-win!
