If your roof is in need of replacement, you may be trying to determine which roof brand is the right one to install on your home. There are multiple factors to consider when deciding on the right type and brand of roofing for your house. Some of these factors that you should consider include your budget, how long the roof is expected to last, style, and the type of material you want.
Your roof is not only the largest item on your house, but it is also one of the most important items. It is responsible for keeping the elements like rain, snow, hail, and animals out of your home. The function of the shingles, underlayment, gutters, and vents all work together to ensure you stay safe, dry, and in an environment that’s comfortable and safe for your family all year long.
In this blog, we’ll discuss the preferred roofing brands we recommend and why each may be right for your new roof installation project.
Owens Corning is our preferred brand of roofing at Unified. This is due to the Surnail technology this brand offers along with the strength of the roofing materials and affordability of materials. Here’s what else we love about Owens Corning roofing:
Owens Cornings offers a variety of design options which is an important factor to any homeowner when making a major repair or upgrade to their home. Owens Corning architectural shingles have multiple granule colors that have been blended together to add texture and shadow lines that give the shingles depth and dimension on the roof. These ceramic-coated colored granules also provide protection against UV degradation.
One of the most important functions of your roof is protecting the inside of your home from water damage. At Unified, we love Owens Corning shingles because they feature a fiberglass mat at the core that has weathering-grade asphalt covered with colorful mineral granules that help to provide a water-shedding barrier for your home as well as a beautiful finished product. Finally, these roofing shingles also have a proprietary heat-activated sealant on each shingle that bonds the shingles together to create a watertight seal so the shingles will last longer.
Owens Corning line of Duration Series shingles feature the company’s patented technology called SureNail. This is a fabric reinforcement in the nailing area that helps protect against shingles from blowing off your roof. No other company in the industry has this patented technology. It allows contractors to install the shingles easily and efficiently while adding the benefit of strength and durability to the shingles.
