Pros and Cons of the Atlas Pinnacle Laminated Shingle
This is an affordable laminated shingle but doesn’t have the durability of more expensive products.

These shingles will last 15-20 years in most climates, and possibly 25 years depending on conditions where you live.
The warranty package is quite good. The lifetime warranty covers defects and provides 100% coverage for 15 years. The wind warranty protects against winds up to 110 MPH with standard installation or 130 MPH with enhanced installation. The shingles are coated with Scotchgard protector and has a lifetime warranty against algae growth.
