The new Owens Corning Duration Shingle have installed a nailing strip that has lots of advantages over the competition. The strip is a tough woven fabric that is installed where the nails go. What this means to the customer is no more over driven nails. Over driven nails can cause lots of problems, from leaks to shingles blowing off. The wide strip nail area covers both layers of the shingle, so when it comes to nail proofing this is the toughest shingle I have installed in the Parkersburg WV area to date.-David Reinhardt http://www.hardtroofing.com
When I install shingles here in Parkersburg WV I will always advise the client to use Owens Corning for lots of reasons. Starting with the 130 mile wind resistant warranty. There are not many days in this area that come close to 70 mile per hour winds.
A lot of real estate pros have asked me about colors for their projects. The first thing I tell them is to keep it neutral. Owens Corning offers some really good choices. My favorite is the estate grey and driftwood. I hope this blog helps any thinking of purchasing a new roof.
