We’ve got years of experience installing Owens Corning roofs, so we’d like to give you a little information about our favorite line of shingles from Owens Corning, the Duration Series.
Owens Corning’s TruDefinition® Duration® Shingles deliver the top in durability and overall appearance. Featuring SureNail® technology, these shingles are specially designed to provide the following benefits:
- Tough design – Duration® shingles feature a woven reinforcing fabric that is engineered to make installation easier, ensuring that shingles are fastened consistently throughout the process.
- Triple layer protection® – Part of the SureNail® difference is the extra layer of reinforcement provided by the woven fabric overlaying the shingle laminate. The common bond offers an extra level of fastener holding power.
- Excellent Adhesion – Owens Corning has developed an enhanced sealant that powerfully adheres the shingle to the fabric nailing strip.
- More Adhesive Power – Add the Owens Corning advanced sealant to extra-wide adhesive bands, and you’ll see why the Duration® shingle has such a great wind resistance warranty. The serious adhesive power, combined with SureNail® technology means that you won’t have to worry about shingles blowing off any time soon.
- Wind Resistant – Just another benefit of the SureNail® technology, Duration® shingles offer superior wind resistance for a minimal amount of nails. Delivering up to 130 MPH wind warranty performance with fewer nails, you’ll be able to enjoy the benefits of a super-strong shingle with fewer deck penetrations.
