Selecting the Asphalt Shingles That Are Right For You

We love the Owens Corning Total Protection Roof System. We’ve even written about how it helps protect homes. As part of the system, homeowners are able to choose beautiful asphalt shingles that best suit their homes. Here’s what you need to know about selecting the asphalt shingles that are right for you — whether you’re concerned about aesthetics or your pocketbook.

Owens Corning Helps With Selecting the Asphalt Shingles That Are Right For You

Westchase Roofing exclusively carries Owens Corning asphalt shingles. We believe they’re a great fit for Florida homes and that they provide homeowners with a great value for a high-quality product. In addition, Owens Corning continues to innovate, ensuring that every generation of shingles is better than the last. That’s something that us perfectionists at Westchase Roofing can understand. As part of our quest to offer exceptional service to our clients, we aim to use the best materials. We believe that means Owens Corning asphalt shingles.

In addition to providing great materials, Owens Corning has made their website into a useful hub for homeowners who need to choose which shingles may work well for them. Here’s what you need to know to make the task easier.

Find Your Color

If you’re concerned about how your new shingles will look or whether they’ll match the paint you’ve recently had redone, the Owens Corning website makes choosing the right palette easy. Simply select a color blend to view shingles that meet your needs. Once you’ve picked a color, you’ll be shown a variety of shingles that contain that color, if only minimally. Clicking on a shingle will provide you with more detailed information about the shingle line and its specific qualities.

Choose Your Features

If you are concerned with wind damage, algae growth, or the color depth of your shingles, you can select shingles with superior wind resistance, StreakGuard Algae Resistance Protection, or TruDefinition Color Platform. Duration shingles are rated to withstand 130 MPH winds, have 10 years of algae resistance, and feature TruDefinition. Berkshire, the top-of-the-line shingles with gorgeous architectural details and brilliant colors, offers 15 years of algae protection.

Focus on Your Style

If you’re replacing your roof and know which style of shingle you want, you can click on the line name and see the shingle features and colorways. For example, let’s say you like the look of slightly rounded shingles. Clicking on the Devonshire name will take you to a page that provides information specific to Devonshire shingles. Devonshire shingles come in 4 colorways and feature StreakGuard, Owens Corning’s trademarked algae protection, which is great for Florida homes.

Pick Your Price Point

Asphalt shingles are a good value in general, however, they do come in multiple price points. On the Owens Corning site, dollar signs ($) demarcate the various price points of the shingles. Supreme ($) shingles provide homeowners with a great deal, as do Oakridge ($$) shingles. Duration ($$$-$$$$), Devonshire ($$$$), and Berkshire ($$$$$) have added protections and elements that make them slightly more expensive. However, as with all Owens Corning asphalt shingles, you are getting high-quality, innovative materials meant to last.

Warranty Concerns

All of Owens Corning products come with a warranty. If you are concerned about the specifics of a warranty, visit this blog post to learn what is covered.

Westchase Roofing is an Owens Corning Platinum Preferred Contractor, which means we’ve had specialized training in the Total Protection Roofing System — and we can offer our clients additional warranties to ensure their roofs are protected. To learn more, check out this post.

Westchase Roofing Superior Roofing Warranty

Superior Roofing Warranty with a Platinum Preferred Contractor

When you’re considering replacing your roof, there are a lot of factors to keep in mind. Not only do you need to find a reputable roof contractor, but you’ll also need to consider what roofing materials you’d like and what color you’d like your roof to be. Shingles now come in various styles and colors, which is great for those who want to customize their home from top to bottom. However, one thing that may get overlooked when perusing samples and evaluating quotes is the roofing warranty offered by the shingle manufacturer or the contractor.

Typical Roofing Warranties

A new roof is a large investment. It’s often one of the largest investments a homeowner will make. Ensuring you have a good warranty on the labor and materials used on your roof is a necessity.

Typical roofing warranties offer limited protection for an average of 5 to 10 years. These warranties generally cover the materials used and may not always cover labor. There are often restrictions based on who installs or repairs your roof and how damage was sustained. Just like an insurance policy is full of fine print, so is the typical warranty disclaimer. Before signing on the dotted line, be sure to grab your magnifying glass and make sure you are truly covered and adequately protected.

Owens Corning Platinum Protection Roofing System Warranty

If you’re not one for “adequate” protection, the Owens Corning Platinum Protection Roofing System Warranty goes beyond the often limiting warranty restrictions of other manufacturers and provides homeowners peace of mind. It is truly a superior roofing warranty.

With an extended warranty length (15-50 years depending on your chosen shingles and other factors) and a workmanship coverage of at least 20 years, you will truly be protected. Combined with your homeowner’s insurance policy, your roof will be protected under most circumstances. That’s a relief more homeowners need!

A Platinum Protection Roofing System Warranty clearly states the warranty limits for each shingle type so homeowners will always know what protections they are entitled to.

There are two important conditions homeowners need to meet in order to be able to purchase the Owens Corning Platinum Protection Roofing System Warranty. This warranty is only available for homeowners who opt to install the Owens Corning Total Protection Roofing System. In addition, your roofing system must be installed by an Owens Corning Platinum Preferred Roofing Contractor such as Westchase Roofing.

Choose A Superior Roofing Warranty!

At Westchase Roofing, we can’t recommend Owens Corning asphalt shingles enough. To better serve our clients, we’ve even undergone special training with the Owens Corning Total Protection Roofing System and exclusively work with Owens Corning products. We value quality labor and quality materials. That’s why we always offer our clients the Owens Corning Platinum Protection Roofing System Warranty. The added protection of a superior warranty can help you sleep more easily under your new roof and help ensure it will be a while before you need to pay to replace it.

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 asphalt 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.

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.
