How it Works: CertaSeal for Uplift Protection


Roofing shingles are meant to protect your home, but if they do not seal together after installation they can blow off or come loose, creating an entry point for damaging moisture and an eyesore for homeowners.

At CertainTeed, we have the technology to help keep your shingles secure on the roof.  CertaSeal™ for wind uplift protection is one of our most tried and true features, and is a standard technology available on all of our asphalt shingles. Regardless of the color and style of your CertainTeed shingles, or the size and shape of your roof, you get proven protection.

Protect Your Roof Shingles From Damage

CertaSeal is the answer to one simple, but all-important question: how can we make shingles that last? Our research and development team spent years making a product that is easy to apply and maintains its effectiveness for decades to come. 

CertaSeal is a high-grade adhesive made from a proprietary blend of asphalts and polymers that is applied to our shingles during the manufacturing process. The result is long-term wind uplift protection, with each individual shingle sealing to others on the roof to create a cohesive barrier. With CertaSeal, you can sit back and enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing you chose the highest quality roofing materials for your home. 

Made to Withstand All Weather Elements 

CertaSeal is your first line of defense against wind uplift, which occurs when high winds pushing against your shingles cause them to lift off the roof or blow off completely. This leaves your roof vulnerable to moisture infiltration that can cause costly and damaging leaks as well as dangerous mold growth within your home. 

Not only do missing and blown-off shingles leave your home vulnerable, they can also make your house look run down. By sealing shingles together, CertaSeal helps prevent wind uplift and the expense and hassle of roof repair. 

A Polymer Seal That Stands the Test of Time

Ongoing exposure to the elements and the slight structural shifts that buildings encounter over time causes most shingle sealants to crack and break.

CertaSeal, however, is designed to protect a roof in the long run. It remains pliable over the years, helping prevent damage that would occur without wind uplift protection. As time marches on, CertaSeal remains strong.
