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 how to choose 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.
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.
