Why You Need to Consider Owens Corning Shingles for Your Next Roof Upgrade

Asphalt shingles were first introduced to the U.S. in 1903, and by 1939, around 11 million squares were being produced every year. Having access to more durable, less expensive alternatives for roofing partly fueled the housing boom that followed as more and more families scooped up and built homes all over the country.

Since that time, innovations in roof shingles have continued, and many companies have been doing anything possible to attract new buyers. One stand-out among them is worth your consideration, and that is Owens Corning. Let’s get into why you should check out these exceptional shingles for roofing and what benefits they offer, such as repair or replacement.

What are Owens Corning Shingles?

Owens Corning has been around since the mid-1930s, frequently creating new products from fiberglass wool to impact-resistant shingles. The length of the company and the variety of systems, like Owens Corning’s Total Protection Roofing System, allow them to work across all demographics, weather areas, and environmental considerations.

At Roof Republic, we pride ourselves on working only with materials and suppliers known for top-quality results. Among the brands we emphasize, Owens Corning shingles offer a wide range of benefits, from algae-resistant materials to dimensional shingles, if you want a fun and eye-catching pattern.

Best of all, Owens Corning comes with its own warranty on top of our certifications as an Owens Corning Preferred Contractor, Master Shingle Application with CertainTeed, and GAF Residential Roofing Contractor. To put it simply, when you choose our professional team and Owens Corning shingles, you’re getting total peace of mind your roof replacement will hold up for years to come.

Top Benefits of Owens Corning Shingles

#1 – Extremely Durable Materials

The Duration Series Shingles from Owens Corning are made using patented SureNail Technology. This works by combining a heavily durable and impact-resistant material with “No Guess” nailing zones so you get a consistent “lay” of your shingles. All these materials come with a limited lifetime warranty from the manufacturer.

#2 – Perfect in Heavy Winds

Texas is no stranger to flying roof shingles during a dust or thunderstorm. With Owens Corning shingles, you get a 130 mph wind warranty, ensuring they won’t get up and sneak away to your neighbor’s yard. Each of these shingles has been tested in the Owens Corning lab, consistently outperforming competitors in gale force winds similar to what they experience in Florida during hurricane season.

#3 – Fantastic Aesthetics

A total roof replacement doesn’t have to be boring with the same old shingle pattern over and over again. Owens Corning and our experienced craftworkers can source a wide variety of shingle colors, shapes, and designs. This company is well aware that some homeowners want to add a little spice to their roofs. We enjoy coming up with innovative roofscapes that make your home stand out in the neighborhood.

#4 – Energy Efficiency

Rising energy bills are a harsh reality every homeowner has to face. A new collection of roof shingles installed offers greater insulation. This keeps your cold air or heat inside your home. Around 20-25% of your heat or AC output is lost through the roof. Protecting your property with Owens Corning Total Protection Roofing System helps ensure you get a comfortable interior during hot Texas days and cool winter nights.

#5 – Add Home Value

A recently installed roof replacement adds a lot of saleable value to your property. If you are in the market for a house, you know that having that option checked on your list of repairs and refurbishments saves you a lot of stress and money. Not only will this boost the community’s home value, but it could lower your insurance premiums as well. New asphalt roofs protect a home, and insurance companies love it when homeowners go “above and beyond” to maintain their properties.

What is the Process of Owens Corning Roof Replacement?

Deciding on upgrading to Owens Corning roof shingles is a fantastic way to boost your property value, improve your comfort level, and give your home a bit of protection during heavy storms and winds.

Initial Consultation: We’ll send one of our expert and experienced inspectors to come to your property and provide information on different Owens Corning shingles. We will also assess your current roof situation, so we have a solid idea of what to expect.

Safe Removal of Roof: Once we’ve agreed to terms, we’ll schedule a date for our professional and trusted team to safely remove the old roof system so we can prepare the surface for new shingles.

Underlayment: Now, it is time to lay a waterproof underlayment that boosts your protection by ensuring no leaks get through to your home. It also aids in reducing issues with fireplace smoke and drafts.

Installation: Using the SureNail Technology, we effectively and efficiently install your new roof shingles, ensuring we always match the proper slope and pitch to reduce wind pressure and other environmental strains.

Flashing: Many Texas homes have fireplaces, vents, and HVAC systems that will need to be flashed so water doesn’t get into your attic or crawl spaces. We do this either along the way or toward the end to ensure we’re offering optimal protection to your home.

The last step is a final inspection by our team and you. We’ll take care of the mess so you can walk around with complete confidence your new roof will be the added aesthetic benefit and durable protection your family can count on.
