Certainteed - Been awhile since I've seen this.

Recommended Posts

There's also another brand with the same issue. I can't remember the name.

It's a 3-tab shingle with an "applique" - an additional layer of unreinforced asphalt and granules added in spots to create a decorative, dimensional enhancement. The manufacturers state the "map" cracks are cosmetic.

Must be a region thing, never heard of Pabco.

They were only distributed way out West.

And that some how applies to Kentucky? Please elaborate.

I take it to mean that the problem isn't limited to CertainTeed, but spans a range of manufacturers across different parts of the country.

From horse's mouth (Certainteed rep here at plant in Norwood MA) "Cracking in the 'applique' (like that) is 'ok'..

(Versus 'cracking through the reinforcement' (the fiberglass-mat).

"It's considered OK in the industry and by the manufacturer. An aesthetic anomaly"
