Owens Corning Roofing Features
Avatar Roofing is very pleased to offer Owens Corning TruDefinition Duration shingles to our valued customers. These industry-leading shingles have so much to offer. The patented SureNail Technology gives Owens Corning shingles an outstanding gripping power. Paired with strong wind and algae resistance, these shingles keep your roof functioning, and looking great for the long hall. Durability is an important factor for your shingles, that’s why Owens Corning offers a total protection roofing system. One System. One Brand. Total Protection.™ The following explains the system in detail.
SEAL- Helps create a waterproof barrier.
Blocks water resulting from ice damming, wind-driven rains, and normal water flow. A properly sealed roof helps prevent rot and mold. The water & ice barrier helps protect the roof where water has a tendency to collect or flow, including valleys, eaves, chimneys and skylights. Helps prevent damage associated with shingle blow-off, wind-driven rain and ice damming. Synthetic underlayment provides a water shedding barrier under shingles for your roof’s last line of defense. Helps guard against damage from wind-driven rain.
DEFEND- Helps protect against nature’s elements.
Adds a tough, yet beautiful layer of defense with strong adhesion that resists blow offs and helps shed water away from the roof deck. Helps protect the most vulnerable areas such as eaves and peaks. Starter shingles ensure a straight edge and effective seal along the eaves and rake areas that are vulnerable to high winds. Shingles provide long-lasting protection and enhanced appearance for your roof’s first line of defense. Provide protection and curb appeal in a wide array of colors and styles. Hip & ridge shingles add extra protection and stylish dimension along the areas that are vulnerable to high winds.
BREATHE- Optimize airflow in your attic
Reduces heat and moisture buildup that can lead to ice damming, roof deterioration, and mold infestation. This helps air flow through the attic to manage temperature and moisture. Proper ventilation helps create a balanced flow where warm, humid air is continually replaced by cool, dry air. Exhaust ventilation helps manage attic temperature and humidity to help protect the interior components of your roof from heat and moisture damage and reduce the likelihood of problems such as ice damming.
COMFORT- Optimize value, comfort and performance
By adding attic insulation to meet current Department of Energy recommendations. Blow-In insulation creates a buffer between the comfortable air inside the living area and extreme heat or cold outside.
