Discontinued Shingles Leave Their Mark on Homeowners Repairs

Asphalt shingles are a popular roofing material choice among homeowners in the Nashville area due to their affordability, durability, and ease of installation. However, many manufacturers have discontinued several product lines over the years, including the most popular ones such as GAF, Owens Corning, CertainTeed, Atlas, Tamko, and others. This can create a headache for homeowners who need to repair or replace their roofs, especially when filing storm damage claims.

One common reason for discontinuing a product line is due to the ever-changing market demands. Manufacturers may find that a particular shingle style or color is no longer popular among consumers and, therefore, decide to discontinue it. As technologies change and improve some manufacturers may discontinue product lines due to cost-saving measures.

Another recent factor contributing to discontinuations is the COVID-19 pandemic. Like many other industries, the pandemic affected the roofing industry, leading to supply chain disruptions and material shortages. Some manufacturers have had to discontinue product lines due to these challenges, causing further frustration for homeowners who need to replace their roofs, even now three years out from the start of the pandemic.

Many Nashville area homeowners are finding that when they file storm damage claims on their roofs, their insurance company cannot pay them to simply patch the shingles when they have been discontinued. However, working with a reputable roofing company like Centennial Roofing can help with this and many other problems. We work with insurance adjusters to provide information on the discontinued shingle, allowing the insurance company to pay for an entire roof replacement instead of just a small repair.

Working with a trusted roofing company such as Centennial Roofing can help provide valuable information to insurance adjusters, ultimately leading to a full roof replacement instead of a small repair for your home.
