The Landmark weighs in at 240 pounds a square.

The comparable durations weigh 228 pounds per square.

I don't touch GAF but last I heard they were 210ish a square.

Your ace roofing link hasn't been updated in years.

Well I have used CRC in the past witch is made by IKO. I have not had any problems with them. It depends on the customer, Where we live in Wisconsin I always push landmarks. If the want cheaper shingles ill either push CRC or Atlas. those seem to be the thickest shingles, that hold up well. I do sell a lot of OC as well and never try to push GAF. Id rather put a castlebrook on a home than GAF, and I Never resort to castlebrook, Atlas has a decent line of shingles but castlebrook is low.

Yeah I'm in the Milwaukee area. I'll use plywood over a GAF shingle.

CRC you can only get at Menards and I don't buy my main supply's there so I have never used them.

Actually for installation purposes we've found CastleBrook to be preferable to IKO.
CRC is the worst shingle out there.

IKO although ithey suck to put on, they seem to hold up OK.

Yes I know allied has TAMKO, I feel abc can be pricey, do you agree? Gulf eagle is reasonable as well.

I purchase a lot more at Allied than ABC but ABC is pretty close to the same price.

Gulf Eagle is the cheapest but service isn't nearly up to par.

I can't keep doing all your research for you. I'm also not the only who has said that about their weight.

I did attach a picture from the Menards website showing the weight per bundle since OC doesn't list weight.

Also if you click under specifications for this link http://m.homedepot.com/p/GAF-Lifetim...180/100658149/
You'll see that each bundle is now 73#

Menards......for real!! You call yourself a professional then post something from Menards, with authority, like they know more than you do.

Are you really posting stuff from 2009?

Owens Corning no longer shows their weights. Where can I find 2014 weights?

I know you're mad that I am continually proving you wrong with things called facts and that although you've been roofing all these years you're learning new things from the younger generation but man, open up your mind.

You had ZERO reply when it took me five seconds to find that OC has had numerous class auction law suits after you said they never have to hire a lawyer.

Once again, I'm not the only one on this forum that has said they are lighter than you think but yet you single me out.

You're giving me a headache.

And now the funny part is that I actually read the results from 2009 and Landmarks were the heaviest for shingles of that class so what the heck are you talking about.

BamBam......Take a deep breath child. You just took it hook, line and the friggin sinker! lol Guess 2009 is ok now huh? LMAO

I don't care how much a shingle weighs.........but it sure is fun seeing you get boiled up over it. You're like the fat kid in school.....but brother, just relax..I'm playing with ya. I just been having fun with you. Sorry you took this stuff serious. If you think a few pounds of shingles make a difference.....then have at it.

I was serious about CT though...I will never sell a customer another product with that name on it.

I am just bored as hell and ready for spring...I have plowed enough snow this winter to last the next 5 years. Hope it don't snow again until 2020.

Them links had nothing to do with class action lawsuit over shingle failure. Those involve bankruptcy over asbestos and hack roofs.
