Great Features Provided by Owens Corning
The nailing line on your shingles really makes the difference between a good shingle and a great one. This is something that SureNail Technology provides as it builds strength and durability into each shingle it manufactures. This is made possible thanks to the unique fabric strip that’s in the nailing area. It’s also important to note that this unique shingle design also offers outstanding gripping power.
In addition to this breakthrough design of the embedded tough engineered woven fabric nailing strip, which creates a strong and durable fastener zone, some additional features of the Owens Corning roofing system include:
Triple layer reinforcement protection occurs because the fabric overlays the common bond area (the two shingle layers).
An outstanding gripping strip enhances the sealant’s already amazing grip.
There’s a warranty that protects your roof in winds of up to 130-MPH. This is welcome news for anyone who knows how significant wind can destroy your roof. When this happens you can start experiencing leaks and other damage to the interior of your home. The quality of the sealant that’s used here plays an important role. Here you can rest assured that independent third-party testing laboratories certified that these were able to reach wind resistance standards.
The best part of this shingle roofing is its Energy Star rating. This is similar to the energy-efficient rating that the appliances in your home receive. Both your appliances and your roof’s shingles provide heating and cooling saving qualities that will help you save money on your heating and cooling bills as long as these things are properly installed in your home.
Algae growth often causes brown to black streaks on roofs regardless of what type of system is used. Fortunately, the discoloration doesn’t impact the shingles’ service life. This occurs when algae species are transported through the air and they start growing in varying degrees on your roof. This is especially true in warm, humid environments like those that are found in Florida. Make sure you don’t mistake this for fungus growth, soot, dirt, or moss. The nice thing is that Owens Corning provides limited warranty coverage for algae resistance.
