Total Protection Roofing System
Every builder and homeowner knows that a roofing system provides more than just an attractive finish to a home. A designer can bring together the components to create a well-coordinated appearance but if the roofing system does not protect against the forces of nature, it fails. If the roofing system does not control temperature and humidity inside, it fails.
The Total Protection Roofing System from Owens Corning, available at Arrowhead Building Supply, gives you the assurance that all of your Owens Corning roofing components are working together to help increase the performance of your roof – and to enhance the comfort and enjoyment of those who live beneath it.
Layer by Layer
VentSure Soffit or InFlow Intake Ventilation Products
When used with the proper exhaust ventilation, these intake ventilation products help replace the warm, humid air in your attic with cool, dry air to help protect the interior components of your roof system from heat and moisture damage. They also help keep the attic temperature closer to the outside temperature to help eliminate problems such as ice damming, which can cause premature shingle deterioration.
WeatherLock Self-Sealing Ice & Water Barrier Products
This component is designed to protect the roof where water has a tendency to collect or flow, including valleys, vents, chimneys and skylights. Ice and water barrier products also help prevent damage from ice damming, when melting and refreezing water can migrate beneath the shingles and lead to premature roof deterioration.
Owens Corning 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.
Owens Corning Starter Shingle Products
These 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.
Owens Corning Shingles
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.
VentSure 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.
Owens Corning Hip & Ridge Shingles
Owens Corning Hip & Ridge Shingles add an attractive, finished look to your roof. They also provide additional protection. Owens Corning Roofing offers a variety of styles designed to match and complement our shingles.
