Asphalt Roofing Stands Up To The Florida Elements

Tampanians know Florida weather is full of surprises. It can be a bright and sunny 80 degrees and a high-wind thunderstorm—all in one day. And while this can ruin beach plans, Florida’s “unique” weather patterns don’t have to cause damage to your home.

Wind, water, and sun can wear down and cause damage to many roofing systems. In Florida, we have plenty of each, which means it’s important that homeowners choose a roofing option that can keep out as much Florida weather as possible.

Protecting your home from the Florida elements can be as simple as choosing Owens Corning asphalt shingles.

How Owens Corning Asphalt Roofing Protect Your Home

Homeowners have plenty of options when it comes to covering their homes. Owens Corning knows this. That’s why they’re always innovating and providing the best quality products for homeowners. One of the ways they’ve catered to homeowners across the country is to create asphalt shingles with various wind resistance and weather protecting qualities.

High winds can blow shingles loose, leaving your roof open to leaks and other damage. A shingle’s sealant can help it withstand higher winds and last longer. Owens Corning tests their shingles to see how much wind they can withstand and shares this information with homeowners so they can choose the most appropriate shingles for their area. Currently, Devonshire, Duration Premium COOL, Duration Designer, and Duration shingles have a wind resistance rating of 130 mph. Berkshire and Oakridge shingles have a wind resistance rating of 110/130 mph.

Surenail® Technology, which is available on Duration Premium COOL, Duration Designer, and Duration shingles, helps Owens Corning shingles last even longer. The fabric strip on the nailing area helps shingles grip together better, increasing their wind resistance and their ability to protect your roof.

Still water on a roof and water that worms its way under shingles can cause significant damage and lead to leaks or mold. To protect against this, the Total Protection Roofing system utilizes a waterproof barrier and an underlayment to block out water. Specially shaped shingles also help manage the flow of water away from your roof. Combined with routine gutter maintenance, you can wave water damage goodbye.

Years of innovation have allowed Owens Corning to make the best asphalt shingles for homeowners—and they continue to work hard to make them even better. We’re proud to exclusively carry Owens Corning products and to help our clients choose the best Owens Corning asphalt shingles for their home.
