How it Works: Max Def Colors

When you choose Landmark® PRO shingles by CertainTeed, the quality of your shingle is guaranteed. We use multiple roofing technologies to create tough, long-lasting, and great-looking products, because you should not have to sacrifice curb appeal for performance.

One of the key aesthetic features of our Landmark PRO shingle line is its Max Def color palette, which is an improvement over standard palettes due to the increased contrast, rich coloration, and sophisticated gradient blends.

Learn how we create Max Def colors and how you can choose the best shingle style for your home.

Color is Ingrained Into our Max Def Shingles

When it comes to roofing shingles, the product color is actually a complex array of colored granules that are combined to create gradient blends on the shingle surface. However, without beautifully colored granules, you can’t get a deep and robust shingle color.

The journey to a high-quality color starts in the laboratory, where our research and development teams explore hundreds of different pigments and pigment combinations in order to identify the color blends needed to create a shingle color. Compared to standard shingle colors, Max Def colors have a unique and special blend composition that highlights the colors and aesthetics of the shingles.

Once the colors for the granule blend are identified, the granules are color-coated and added to our shingle surfaces during the manufacturing process using precise instruments that place the granules on the shingles to exacting specifications. The result is a rich surface of shingles that create your ideal roof color.
