Westchase Roofing is proud to be an Owens Corning Platinum Preferred Contractor. We know that they strive to produce and innovate high-quality products that are able to protect our clients’ homes from the harsh Florida elements. That’s why we always recommend the Owens Corning Total Protection Roofing System. With three layers to seal your roof, protect it from the elements, and allow your home to breathe, the Total Protection Roofing System ensures you’re, well, protected.
The Total Protection Roofing System Seals Out Florida Rain
The Tampa area sees its fair share of rain. A good roof should include a sealing layer to keep water out of your home. The Total Protection Roofing System uses an underlayment and an ice and water barrier to prevent rot, mold, and water damage.
Owens Corning WeatherLock Ice & Water Barriers prevent wind-blown water that is common during a storm from sneaking beneath your shingles and damaging your roof. Always an innovator, Owens Corning offers multiple underlayment products featuring different technologies. Deck Defense Roof Underlayment is made from synthetic materials and has a surface coating to prevent the types of tears that may cause leaks. Fiberglas Reinforced Felt Underlayment is strengthened so it will not rip or pull away from fasteners. ProArmor Synthetic Roof Underlayment is a water repelling and is slip resistant. It’s made for use only under asphalt shingles, one of Owens Corning specialties.
The Total Protection Roofing System Defends Against the Florida Heat and Storms
Shingles often come to mind when thinking about a roof, but in reality, they are just one component—though they are the most visible component. As the last line of defense between your belongings and the weather, shingles serve to protect everything beneath them. It’s a big job and Owens Corning has guaranteed that they are up to the task.
With a variety of asphalt shingles engineered to last—and to look good—Owens Corning Total Protection Roofing System allows homeowners to select a color and style that reflects their personal aesthetic and adds value to their home.
All asphalt shingles are not created equally. As the creators of fiberglass and the first company to create a composite asphalt shingle including fiberglass, Owens Corning has a leg up on the competition. They also understand that a shingle is not just a shingle. To properly do its job, specialized shingles are necessary to create the most protective roof. As part of the Total Protection Roofing System, starter shingles, regular shingles, and hip and ridge shingles are utilized to ensure your roof not only remains leak-free but looks good, too.
The Total Protection Roofing System Lets You and Your Home Breathe Easy
To further protect your home and your roof, air flow through the attic is necessary. Proper air flow can help moderate temperature and reduce moisture buildup, preventing mold and roof deterioration. There are two components to a well-ventilated attic, intake and exhaust. Never one to offer a one-size-fits-all solution, Owens Corning manufactures multiple VentSure intake and exhaust vents so homeowners can collaborate with their roofing contractors to determine which is best for their home and their region.
The Total Protection Roofing System works because it is a cohesive set of roofing products that when used in tandem create a long-lasting roof that will protect for decades. By focusing on the problems that homeowners encounter with roofs, Owens Corning has created a system that takes into account homeowners’ concerns and tackles them with innovative technologies and products they engineered to help homeowners rest easy.
