Below is a chart of the most popular asphalt shingles installed by Contractor’s Cloud customers between January 1, 2015 to November 1, 2017.


The data shows percentages of nearly 700,000 squares of shingles  installed by our top 250 customers from all parts of the United States.

All shingle styles above include their AR (Algae resistant), IR (Impact resistant), and designer models.

The CertainTeed Landmark takes first place (23.91%) followed closely by the GAF Timberline HD (22.86%). Coming in third and fourth respectively are the Owens Corning TruDef Duration  (14.16%) and the Tamko Heritage (10.77%).

Note, the top five makes and models installed are all architectural styled shingles. This shows that most American homeowners prefer the architectural style over the traditional 3-tab shingle style.

Even though CertainTeed takes the top shingle installed, GAF holds the most squares installed with 27.44% with their Timberline HD, Royal Sovereign, and ArmorShield II models combined.

Within Contractor’s Cloud, our roofing contractor’s are able to create, schedule, and manage all of their roofing work orders and material orders complete with colors, sizes, and costs. It’s an amazing and innovative way for them to succeed with their production efforts.
