Owens Corning has a Total Protection System for your roof. We like the protection this offers our Oklahoma customers. Let's take a look at their system, so you can see the value and the roofing protection for your Oklahoma home or your Oklahoma office.
FIRST: Roof Ventilation Products for cold weather and for hot weather ventilation of your Oklahoma roof.
A Healthy Roofing System Starts with proper attic ventilation. That's right - attic ventilation is crucial to a healthy roof! We like their two ventilation products: VentSure®Soffit or InFlow™ Intake Ventilation Products. Why is this so important? It prevents damage and premature aging caused by moisture or excess heat. And - we KNOW that our summers are HOT! This ventilation is best achieved by a good, consistent flow of air coming in and air going out - or - intake and exhaust. It is almost as if your roof must "breathe".
In cold weather, warm air generated by activities such as laundry, showers, dish washing and cooking can cause moisture buildup in the attic.
SECOND: Self-Sealing Ice & Water Barrier Products
Owens Corning™ WeatherLock® Self-Sealing Ice & Water Barrier are designed to protect your Oklahoma Roof in those places where water may collect or flow: valleys, vents, chimneys, skylights, and so forth. The ice and water barrier products also help prevent damage to your roof from something called "Ice Damming". Ice damming occurs from ice forming on your shingle, then melting and migrating beneath the shingle. This can cause premature roofing deterioration.
The WeatherLock® G Granulated Self-Sealing Ice & Water Barrier provides additional security against leaks caused by our Oklahoma storms, our wind-driven rain, and shingle blow-offs. This is very important in Oklahoma. Their WeatherLock® Mat Ice & Water Barrier s designed to act as a secondary water barrier under shingles, wood shakes and quarry slate roofs. It helps prevent damage due to shingles being blown off, as well as wind-driven rain – which can get under shingles. Owens Corning even has a specialty waterproofing barrier for Tile and Metal roofs.
THIRD: Underlayment Products
Underlayment provides an additional layer of protection between your roof’s wood decking and the shingles, mainly to guard against wind-driven rain that can get beneath the shingles. Owens Corning™ roofing products include both Fiberglas™ Reinforced Felt Underlayment and durable synthetic DECK DEFENSE® High Performance Roofing Underlayment.
Deck Defense® High Performance Roof Underlayment features a durable, synthetic construction that works with your shingles to help shield your home from moisture infiltration. Fiberglas™ Reinforced Felt Underlayment adds an extra layer of protection beneath the shingles, helping prevent moisture from reaching the roof deck.
FOURTH: The Starter Shingle Products
Owens Corning™ Starter Shingle products are the first step in the proper installation of the shingles. They help provide a clean look with a straight edge at the eave and along the rake edge of the roof. The continuous sealant bead on the product provides a seal between the starter and the first row of shingles. Owens Corning™ Starter Shingle products help prevent shingle blow-offs and water infiltration in a vulnerable area of the roof. Starter Shingle products come in rolls, strip shingles, and shingles. Since Curb Appeal Roofing Construction is an Owens Corning Certified Contractor, we know which product will work the best for your Oklahoma roof.
FIFTH: Your Shingles - Providing Curb Appeal and Protection
Shingles not only serve as the first layer of defense against the forces of nature, they also help define the character of your home. With innovations such as our patented SureNail® Technology and the multiple granule colors and shadowing used in our TruDefinition® Duration® Shingles, Owens Corning™ shingles are designed to bring strength and beauty to your roof.
We will help you choose your new, Total Protection Shingle from either the Traditional, Architectural, or Specialty line of Owens Corning Shingles.
The high-performance Specialty Shingles are stylish and a step above the rest. This line of high-performance shingles includes Woodmoor, Woodcrest, the Berkshire Collection, and the Duration Premium Cool Shingles.
Our best selling shingle group is the Architectural shingles. These include SureNail® Technology and the Standard Laminate Shingles. Owens Corning also offers a very economical, three-tab shingle.
SIXTH: Exhaust Ventilation Products
Owens Corning™ exhaust ventilation components such as VentSure® ridge or off-ridge vents help draw air out of the attic, protecting the roofing system from heat and moisture damage. Optimally designed to work together with our VentSure® intake ventilation products, they help create a balanced flow where warm, humid air is continuously replaced by cool, dry air.
In order to create a consistent flow of cool, dry air through your attic, you need to make sure the air has a way to come in and go out: intake and exhaust. For a roof, intake is usually achieved through eave and soffit vents, while exhaust is achieved through vents in the gables, deck or ridge. It’s important there is a balance between the intake and exhaust ventilation to help ensure air flows smoothly and efficiently. Owens Corning provides a full line of ventilation products to protect your Oklahoma roof.
