When New Jersey homeowners ask, “How long do Owens Corning shingles last?” the short answer is “for decades.” Two of the nation’s leading roofing products are Owens Corning Shingles, Duration and Duration Designer. Roofing systems featuring these rugged laminated shingles deliver essential comfort and protection year after year.

The roof is your home’s first line of defense against New Jersey’s weather extremes. It must endure repeated hot-cold and freeze-thaw cycles. It must protect against torrential rains, heavy snows, and even hail. Most important is that they provide superior wind resistance.

Owens Corning expresses confidence in its roofing products through industry-leading warranty protection. Owens Corning Shingles, Duration or Duration Designer Series, include “Workmanship for Life” coverage. However, it’s only available when you use an Owens Corning Platinum Preferred Contractor.

Premium Features

There are many reasons why Owens Corning Shingles, Duration and Duration Designer are so popular. Northern NJ homeowners value the Patented SureNail technology and Tru-Bond sealant. They work together to keep your shingles in place when severe weather strikes. SureGuard technology protects against dark streaking caused by algae. When you’re wondering “How long do Owens Corning shingles last?” consider the combined value of these premium features.

Superior design and construction

The design and construction of Owens Corning shingles deliver superior durability and longevity. Both Duration and Duration Designer shingles feature multiple layers of fiberglass. This tough, fire-resistant material is sandwiched between layers of weathering-grade asphalt.

Owens Corning has decades of experience effectively integrating fiberglass into its asphalt shingles. It all began more than eight decades ago when the company’s own Games Slayter invented fiberglass. The company trademarked this special form of glass wool as “Fiberglas.”

SureNail technology

The durability of an asphalt shingle is helpful only to the degree that it stays in place. One of the reasons an Owens Corning roof lasts a long time is the exclusive SureNail system. A reinforced nailing zone delivers maximum gripping power.

The technology resists the destructive force of the high winds that can strike NJ any season of the year. Duration and Duration Designer shingles come with 130+ mph wind ratings.

Tru-Bond sealant

Owens Corning Duration and Duration Designer shingles also feature proprietary “Tru-Bond” cold-climate sealant. A premium adhesive strip securely bonds shingles to one another. The result is a unified wind and water-resistant roofing system.

Protective granules

Premium surface granules impart color while enhancing impact-resistance and UV protection. Owens Corning also offers SureGuard. This is a proprietary method for infusing these granules with algae-fighting copper. The copper is released over time. This prevents those distracting black streaks so common on NJ roofs.

WeatherGuard technology

For extreme impact resistance, consider Duration Storm shingles with patented WeatherGuard technology. Their UL 2218, Class 4 hail rating is one of the highest available. Install Duration Storm Series shingles, and you might qualify for homeowner’s policy premium discounts.

Industry-leading Warranty Protection

Enjoy lifetime limited warranty coverage through an Owens Corning Platinum Preferred Contractor. Coverage will meet or exceed that offered by other roofing manufacturers.

An extended Owens Corning roof warranty also includes TRU PROtection. This feature covers both materials and labor for a full 50 years. Extended coverage also includes tear-off and disposal costs when required.

Generous warranties express a roofing manufacturer’s confidence. Superior roofing products installed by factory-certified contractors qualify for the best warranties.

Enjoy warranty coverage on all roof components when you choose the Total Protection Roofing System (TPRS). This includes coverage of underlayment, flashing, ridge vents and ice/water barriers.

Also, you’ll have peace of mind knowing you can transfer the warranty to the next owner. Enjoy a better return on your roofing investment with a transferable warranty. It builds value for a prospective buyer.

Excellent Color Selection

Duration and Duration Designer shingles both feature the TruDefinition Color Platform. It delivers dramatic tones and bright, vibrant hues that enhance curb appeal and pride of ownership.

Owens Corning offers many color options. Match them with your personal sense of style. Coordinate or contrast your shingle color with the architectural elements of your home.
