GAF vs Certain Teed For Roofing Shingles ? Opinions ?


Hello:
Anyone have any opinions regarding GAF vs Certain Teed for roofing shingles ?
Am confused over this:
Does one offer (only) asphalt, while the other a fiberglass product ?
Are fiberglass shingles the thing to go with these days, rather than aspphalt shingles ? Or,... ?
Thanks, B.

Both brands are about equal and have competing products in every price range.
Check out http://www.certainteed.com/CertainTeed/Homeowner/Homeowner/Roofing/Prodindex/Shingles / and certainly read this no matter what brand you choose http://www.certainteed.com/NR/rdonlyres/C751894C-1399-4FEF-9182-7F9B983A6BFD/0/ReroofingBrochure20201698.pdf
GAF has a lot of good information also http://www.gaf.com/General/GafMain.asp?Silo=RES1&WS=GAF
Both places offer a list of certified contractors. IMO, the choice of contractor is more important than the brand of shingle.
