Atlas shingles with Scotchgard™ Protector practically sell themselves.

“Homeowners can’t tell you what kind of shingle they have, but they can tell you that it has Scotchgard,” says Jim Ricci of JRC Services in Eustis, FL.

“It’s just that brand recognition, so the client feels really comfortable,” adds Philip Abello of Abello’s Roofing of Colorado Springs, CO. “It definitely builds credibility.”

With more than 25 years of proven performance, 3M Scotchgard Protector defends against the ugly black streaks caused by algae.

While competitors’ algae-resistant shingles average between 2 and 6 percent copper, Atlas shingles with Scotchgard Protector contain a minimum 10 percent blend of 3M copper granules, which keeps a roof looking like new for years.

“If I can put on all Atlas products and avoid any type of streaking, and drive by that roof 10 years from now and it looks like the day we put it on, that’s what I’m looking for,” says Paul Saharsky of H and S Roofing in Green Bay, WI. “That’s the peace of mind I want to give my customers. It’s just an easy sell.”

Scotchgard Protector is available in Atlas Roofing’s StormMaster® Slate, StormMaster Shake, Pinnacle® Pristine and Legend® shingle lines.
