Supplier Spotlight: Owens Corning Shingles

Owens Corning Roofing Materials Lubbock

Owens Corning® is a well-established company founded in 1935, and has been in the Forture 500 since the creation of that index. Owens Corning shingles are recognized worldwide as leaders in roof shingle technology. They are one of the worlds primary supplier of roofing materials, insulation and fiberglass composites. The company has a historical, proven track record of developing outstanding quality products. Yet they seek out sustainable solutions and creative technologies to minimize the impact their products and production processes might have on the environment. For instance, their Kansas City manufacturing plant uses locally recycled glass bottles that would have otherwise filled local landfills.

Owens Corning Shingles

The shingle has the unique responsibility of being the first line of defense against the element while also being the cornerstone of the aesthetics of a home. Shingles have to look beautiful and function exceptionally well. Owens Corning® has created shingle technologies like their Nailing Zone Performance that provide longer lasting roofs through better installation processes.

Owens Corning® shingles don’t just perform exceptionally, but look great too, for years! Pick shingles that employ their StreakGuard™ Algae Protection technology that helps to inhibit the growth of algae on your shingles, keeping them beautiful for years.

Keep your energy bills lower with shingles from their Cool Roof collection. These shingles keep your home more comfortable with technologies like solar reflectance and thermal emittance. There’s no need to know what that is, just know that your home will feel cooler in the hot summer months.

A Roof Is Much More Than Just Shingles

Owens Corning Shingles and Roofing Components

The shingle is just the tip of the iceberg, figuratively speaking. It’s the component of the roof that you see, but there is far more to a roof than shingles. Owens Corning® shingles work seamlessly (no pun intended) with their advanced engineered roofing system that protects your home in three areas – SEAL – DEFEND – BREATHE™.

Their SEAL components include an ice & water barrier and a synthetic underlayment. One shingle style won’t provide your roof with optimal defense. The DEFEND components include starter shingles, standard shingles, and hip & ridge shingles. To protect the roof system from the inside, their BREATHE components include intake and exhaust ventilation.

The complete system works together to give you a great looking, long lasting roof that you can be proud of, and will be a major selling point for the next owner of your home.
