The Power Is In The System -- Owens Corning Roofing Products

Owens Corning Roofing

One of the great things about Owens Corning roofing products is that they have been designed to work together as a "system" -- where the strengths of the various Owens Corning roofing products interact and work together to provide superior protection and durability when installed.

Owens Corning makes 4 different types of roofing products for residential installations: shingles, insulation products, underlayment and hip and ridge shingles.

To begin with, let's highlight Owens Corning roofing shingles. Their Berkshire collection are laminated shingles, available in eight different color schemes. This Owens Corning roofing material comes with a lifetime limited warranty, and is rated to withstand winds of up to 110 mph. On the other hand you can choose from their Woodmoor AR collection of laminated shingles. These also come with a lifetime limited warranty and are available in seven different color options.

If you are looking for a premium quality Owens Corning shingle, I would highly recommend their Duration line of premium laminated shingles. This line of shingles is rated to withstand winds of up to 130 mph and is available in 15 different colors. This is just a very quick sample of the multitudes of Owens Corning roofing shingles that are available -- ask your local roofing professional for information on their entire line.

Another essential element in the Owens Corning roofing system is roof ventilation. Owens Corning manufacturers several different products in this area: VentSure ridge vents, VentSure roof vents, their Raft-R-Mate attic rafter vents, and various types of soffit panels. These Owens Corning roofing ventilation products promote the efficient and healthful exchange of air underneath your roof and in your attic.

Another important component of the Owens Corning roofing system are hip and ridge shingles. These are the shingles which are used at the topmost "pointy" part of your roof -- and they are specially designed to be extra durable and to resist the effects of the weather -- especially wind and moisture damage. Depending on your needs, you can select Owens Corning roofing products such as their High Ridge AR hip and ridge shingles with sealant, Berkshire hip and ridge shingles, High Style hip and ridge shingles with sealant, and WeatherGuard HP hip and ridge shingles.

A final, but very important component of the Owens Corning roofing system are their various underlayment products. These provide essential protection from the weather and its effects for the deck of your roof, and are laid down before your shingles are attached to your roof deck. Products here include their WeatherLock G Granulated, WeatherLock Mat, and WeatherLock Metal High Temperature underlayment (used on metal roofs). In addition, you can also choose from the WeatherLock P Poly-Surfaced and WeatherLock Cold Climate Owens Corning roofing underlayment products for special needs and circumstances.

Owens Corning has a network of many authorized dealers and installers throughout the country, so check with your local contractor if you want any of the above products installed -- you'll find them helpful, courteous, experienced and knowledgeable resource persons.
