Westchase Roofing Total Protection Roofing System

How the Total Protection Roofing System Provides Maximum Protection

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.

Westchase Roofing Tampa Owens Corning 100 Best Corporate Citizens List

Owens Corning Ranks on Corporate Responsibility Magazine’s 100 Best Corporate Citizens List

At Westchase Roofing, we pride ourselves on quality work and are committed to excellence. We exclusively use Owens Corning asphalt shingles and are honored to be an award-winning Platinum Preferred Contractor. That’s why when we heard that Owens Corning has been recognized for continuing to work hard to create a company that values corporate responsibility and sustainability, we had to share the news.

Corporate Responsibility Magazine’s 100 Best Corporate Citizens List

Corporate Responsibility Magazine focuses on five most important segments of corporate responsibility (CR): “energy and the environment, risk management, governance and compliance, employee relations, and human rights.” Not only does it provide its readers with best practices and case studies, but it also publishes the 100 Best Corporate Citizens List. (You can check out the list here.)

This list focuses on the impact that public companies have. To create the list, CR Magazine looks at seven categories and ranks companies based on publicly available information. Environment, climate change, employee relations, human rights, governance, finance, and philanthropy are all ranked and a weighted average is then determined to help populate the list. Last year, Owens Corning was 43 on the list, an admirable spot. This year, however, they’ve managed to move up to number 25. In addition, the company ranked number 2 in the environment category. Wow!

“Expanding our impact through sustainability is a core value of the company,” said Chief Sustainability Officer Frank O’Brien-Bernini. “Owens Corning is especially proud to be recognized for our leadership in the environment, climate change, philanthropy, and human rights. Our top-25 ranking on the CR 100 reflects the great work of our 16,000 people around the world.”

Owens Corning believes their philanthropic work in China and India, as well as their increased reporting transparency in regards to the environment and climate change, helped them secure the higher ranking.

The Most Sustainable Headquarters List

Part of CR Magazine’s sustainability assessment is taking a look at a company’s headquarters. After all, someone who is serious about sustainability practices what they preach. They weren’t disappointed when they took a look at Owens Corning’s Toledo, Ohio, headquarters. The company made the list of Most Sustainable Corporate Headquarters for the second consecutive year. Owens Corning’s adherence to rigorous environmental standards and their acknowledgment that sustainability should be part of a company’s culture is clear in their ranking.

Congratulations, Owens Corning!

Owens Corning continues to show its commitment to being a company that cares—and that’s something we can stand behind. Congratulations, Owens Corning, on your continued success, and thank you for everything that you do to ensure your products are high quality.

We found Owens Corning shingles to be perfect for Florida roofing needs—from torrential rains to baking sunshine, Owens Corning shingles protect your home and your investment.

Why Owens Corning?

So why did we decide to only carry Owens Corning? Our quest for quality led us to Owens Corning shingles—and we’re so glad it did.

Owens Corning History

Owens Corning was founded in 1938 and since then they’ve proven themselves a leader in roofing, insulation, and fiberglass composites. In fact, Owens Corning was the first company to engineer fiberglass. (Their brand is appropriately called Fiberglas.) In 1965, after purchasing a shingle producer, Owens Corning began backing shingles with Fiberglas—and a new industry standard was born. Combined with their SureNail technology, which helps protect roofs from wind damage, Owens Corning shingles make a superior roof covering.

Owens Corning constantly strives to create the best materials for a more sustainable world and to provide quality customer service. These are lofty goals—especially for a company that operates in 25 different countries and has 16,000 employees!

We found that Owens Corning successfully delivers on their goals—consistently ranking as a top manufacturer of asphalt roofing shingles and pushing the envelope of innovation. In fact, they’re the #1 shingle brand. And, honestly, we’re not surprised.

Quality Manufacturing—Made in the USA

Owens Corning has revolutionized shingles. They have focused on providing roofing for sustainable, LEED-certified buildings, as well as the home of the average American family. With ongoing research and development, you know you’re getting the best with Owens Corning shingles.

In addition, Owens Corning shingles are manufactured in the United States. Owens Corning has 15 manufacturing plants across the U.S. that produce 9 different varieties of shingles.

Beautiful Craftsmanship and Design

The Owens Corning Quality Difference

Why We Exclusively Install the Owens Corning Total Protection Roofing System

When you like a product, you’ll probably buy one and continue to buy from that brand until something better comes along. There’s no real commitment, it just makes life easier when you buy the same brand of dish detergent or granola bars.

But what about when you love something? When you find a product that truly solves a problem for you or fills a need? Well, you’re likely to tell your friends about and share the love. After all, when something helps us or makes our lives easier, we generally want to help others by sharing that information. That’s how we at Westchase Roofing feel about the Owens Corning Total Protection Roofing System. We love it so much we want to shout it from… well… the rooftops.

Why We Exclusively Install the Owens Corning Total Protection Roofing System

Owens Corning has been manufacturing roofing shingles since 1977. Previously, the company had invented fiberglass, a key component of insulation. Upon acquiring a shingle company, Owens Corning began producing fiberglass-reinforced asphalt shingles, adding longevity to the functional shingles. Now, fiberglass reinforced shingles are used across the world.

This history of innovating and making things better prompted Owens Corning to devise the Total Protection Roofing System. Utilizing the same problem-solving skills and a forward-thinking mentality, the engineers at Owens Corning have deconstructed the idea of what a roof is into three components and then focused on creating the best products to address each of the needs.

We’ve found that this method has created a roofing system that protects homes and addresses the needs of most homeowners. As roofers, we’ve looked around and found nothing else that was comparable in quality, thus our commitment to exclusively installing the Owens Corning Total Protection Roofing System for our clients.

Components of the Owens Corning Total Protection Roofing System

The different parts of the Owens Corning Total Protection Roofing System aim to do three things: seal, defend, and breathe.

Seal

Florida is wet and that’s an understatement. To keep the water out of your home, you need a waterproof barrier that keeps water out of the places where it tends to collect and provides an extra layer of leak protection. Water barriers and underlayment are two components that can keep your home dry and increase the longevity of your roof.

Defend

Your roof must defend your home from the elements, from strong winds to rain and hail. High-quality fiberglass and asphalt shingles not only serve to defend your home, but they can also help it be more energy-efficient.

Breathe

In Florida, mold can be a common roofing problem. A roof that can breathe properly can protect your roof from mold infestation and help prolong the life of your roof. Intake and exhaust vents help your roof breathe.

By focusing on the different tasks a roof must accomplish, Owens Corning has created a roofing system that can offer maximum protection for your home at a great value. Combined with expert installation by a vetted Tampa roofing company, your home will truly be protected.

Why Hiring an Owens Corning Platinum Preferred Contractor is a Smart Choice

Picking the right contractor for a job can be a difficult task. Amassing quotes, checking certifications, and reading through service agreements can be a daunting task. When you’re looking for a highly-skilled contractor to install a new roof on your home, the stress of evaluating potential contractors shouldn’t add to your worries. Owens Corning makes selecting the right roofing contractor easier with their Platinum Preferred Contractor program, a selective roofing contractor program that admits less than 1% of all roofing contractors.

Westchase Roofing Owens Corning Platinum Preferred Contractor

What is an Owens Corning Platinum Preferred Contractor?

To ensure high-quality installation, the premier asphalt shingle manufacturer, Owens Corning, created a special program to highlight contractors the company has vetted.

An Owens Corning Platinum Preferred Contractor is a roofing contractor who has passed the various benchmarks set by Owens Corning. Because less than 1% of all roofing contractors are admitted into the program, it serves as an assurance of quality for homeowners and makes selecting a verified, reputable roofing contractor easier.

Renowned for innovation and technological advances in roofing, Owens Corning has created a one-of-a-kind program that benefits both contractors and homeowners. The Owens Corning Platinum Preferred Contractor program removes some of the stress of home renovations by highlighting the customer service, workmanship, and reliability of its designees.

How Does a Contractor Join the Program?

To be part of the 1% of roofing contractors allowed to use the Platinum Preferred Contractor designation, a roofing company must illustrate that it is customer friendly and detail oriented. While membership into Owens Corning’s Contractor Rewards program is open to all roofing contractors, membership into the Platinum Preferred Contractor program is by invitation only.

Westchase Roofing Better Business BureauOwens Corning only allows contractors who have a good Better Business Bureau rating into its program. Contractors must also carry the appropriate insurance, licenses, and workman’s comp insurance, plus have a good business credit standing. This helps separate the reputable contractors from fly-by-night operations and organizations that don’t focus on high-quality work and sustainable business practices.

Essentially, Owens Corning does its best to verify the viability of the company before allowing it into the program. In addition, to be considered platinum, a contractor must also undergo a workmanship inspection. Owens Corning’s rigorous standards ensure only the best contractors take part in the Platinum Preferred Contractor program and help homeowners select the right contractor for their needs.
