GAF and Owens Corning are among the industry-leading brands in roofing materials, but which is better for your home? We have broken down the benefits of each brand below.

Owens Corning is the No. 1 roofing material manufacturer in the U.S. and it has been among the top brands for roofing materials for the last 100 years. Its shingles are up to 50% stronger against wear and tear than other brands, thanks to its EverGuard Technology.

The biggest benefits of Berkshire® Owens Corning shingles are:

  • Long-Lasting: Oakridge® Shingles are The Right Choice® for long-lasting performance and striking beauty. In addition to a wide range of inviting, popular colors, Owens Corning shingles also offer a limited lifetime warranty for as long as you own your home.
  • Durability: It’s No Guess wide nailing zone has a tough, engineered woven-fabric strip that is embedded in the shingle to create an easy-to-see strong, durable fastener zone.
  • Cost: Shingles do not require an ice & water shield over the underlayment, which saves you money on installation.
