Westchase Roofing Asphalt Roofing Florida Weather

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.

Westchase Roofing Company Customer Service

At Westchase Roofing, You’re Family

A house serves to shelter us from the elements, to provide us with a place to sleep, eat, and bathe, and to hold our belongings. A home, however, a home is so much more. It’s where you run with your dog in the backyard and mark your children’s heights on the door jambs after yet another growth spurt. Home is where you joyfully enter, happy to have your own private oasis from the world.

Westchase Roofing Total Protection Roofing System

Learn 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.

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 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.
