SureStart Plus Protection
SureStart Plus Protection for individual homeowners who own and use the property as their residence where the shingles are installed. (Excludes condominiums, homeowners associations, etc.; refer to CertainTeed’s limited warranty for details.) All CertainTeed shingles carry standard SureStart protection which fully covers your shingles in the event of a manufacturing defect during the early years following installation. Once the SureStart period ends, typically after 10 years, you are covered for shingles only and at a reduced rate as the roof ages. When a CertainTeed Integrity Roof System™ is installed, your CertainTeed ShingleMaster™ is exclusively authorized to offer you two levels of SureStart Plus, which takes traditional SureStart protection and extends coverage for up to 50 years depending on the level of protection you choose. That means, in the event of a manufacturing defect, you are fully covered.
