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.
