Description

The 1/12 Shingle Gauge™ measures the thickness of 3-Tab shingles, and based on analyses made by Haag, correlates that thickness to a warranty range. The 1/12 Shingle Gauge™ is an estimating tool which provides users with a warranty range for 3-Tab Shingles. There are a small number of outlying shingles which do not conform to the gauge.

Why does the 1/12 Shingle Gauge™ not include Laminated Shingles? In early 2011, most asphalt shingle manufacturers introduced “lifetime” limited warranties for their products. Haag responded by acquiring 76 models of these shingles from every U.S. manufacturer to measure shingle thicknesses and to compare against their warranties. The testing concluded laminated shingles could not be separated by thickness into warranty categories. The thicknesses of new “lifetime” warrantied shingles varied dramatically. What’s more, many manufacturers limit “lifetime” warranties to residential installations and use a year designation for commercial-use installations. Without a strong relationship between warranty and thickness, we cannot create an updated Gauge which includes Laminated Shingles.
