So why is that important to you? Because even the highest-quality shingles cannot work alone to protect a home. That’s why it’s so important to also consider attic insulation and proper ventilation when approaching a re-roofing job. A “Top of the House” system helps increase a roof’s longevity by adding to the life of shingles, preventing moisture buildup and helping to prevent ice dams; each of those benefits adds to a home’s sustainability. Knowing that the roofers working on your home understand the big picture when it comes to performance assures your confidence in a job not only well done, but one that will last years longer and protect your entire home much better.

Owens Corning Top of the House

Roofing is a vital part of our 3-Point “Top of the House” System.

Your house is comprised of a series of structural components that have been designed and engineered to efficiently work together to provide protection from the elements and a comfortable, healthy home environment for you and your family.

We use a common sense approach to improving the top part of your house; from the attic insulation and ventilation, to completing the project with a water-proof underlayment barrier, topped with elegant architectural shingles. Our installation experts start the process with thorough planning and preparation, plus an in-depth knowledge of how each of the 3 main components –Insulation, Attic Ventilation & Roofing – must all function seamlessly together.

When completed, our 3 Point System will provide your family with protection from the elements, help prevent ice dams, increase comfort, and lower your monthly energy costs. Visit our Home Insulators website.

How to Select the Right Shingles and Color to Improve Your Curb Appeal.

We recommend Owens Corning architectural shingles because they are a thicker shingle, constructed with multiple layers that give them a 3-dimensional look. Also known as laminated or dimensional shingles, architectural roofing shingles are among the highest quality roofing products made. They are a big step up from the old three-tab shingles, which contains a flat layer with no dimensional thickness to them. Architectural shingles weight almost 50% more than old three-tab shingles, but only cost about 20% more. When you compare the durability and the curb appeal that architectural shingles provide, they are a tremendous value for the price.

One of easiest ways to select shingles for your home is to click on the Owens Corning design tool, which lets you see just what each style and color of shingle will look like on your house. Shingles are now considered a design element and have established their own category of “Shingle Pairings” to offer you creative ways to carry a color theme throughout your home and even show you decorating and accessory suggestions. You can give your home a complete makeover just by updating your roofing and siding. You can have one of the nicest looking homes in the neighborhood with the proper combination of siding colors and textures complemented by a blend of rich, multi-colored, architectural shingles.
