Anyone who has worked in roofing for any period of time will probably agree with the following statement. Most homeowners clearly believe a shingle is a shingle is a shingle. Why would most roofers come to assume this?
Because when it comes time to re-shingle your roof, most people primarily focus on one thing.
The color options of the shingle that will be going on their home.
Some homeowners might ask briefly about the shingle itself (“So how long is the warranty?”), but if they spent as much time talking about the shingles technology as they do comparing the optional color choices, they’d be much more likely to end up with a better protected roof that would last longer. When the team at JN Roofing meets with prospective clients and discusses shingle technology, people seem genuinely surprised that so much technology can be incorporated into a shingle and how much of a difference it can make.
By focusing on the shingles technology above and beyond the shingle color, savvy homeowners can get more durability, water protection, wind resistance and a variety of other issues. So first thing first, yes, shingles actually have technology. At JN Roofing, after an exhaustive search, we settled on exclusively using Owens Corning duration shingles. In our opinion, these are hands down the best shingles you can buy for your home.
Why did we come to that conclusion? Consider the following facts regarding Owens Corning Duration shingles. They offer…
- wind resistance of up to one hundred and thirty miles an hour (yes 130 MPH!).
- ten years algae resistance, (which puts them right into the the best in class category).
- SureNail technology. SureNail is a game changer when it comes to shingles. Each Duration shingle has visible fabric strip which not only helps provide a nailing line, but also increases the shingles performance and durability.
- They have the highest impact resistance rating possible.
- And yes, they are energy star rated.
And have no fear, yes Duration shingles look amazing! Thanks to their multiple granule colors and shading technique used in their development Duration shingles offer a wide array of vibrant long lasting shingle color options to satisfy even the most particular homeowner.
Best of all (remember we told you we saved the best for last), JN Roofing is even able to offer a fifty year manufacturers warranty on the Owens Corning Duration shingles. From our experience, this is the best possible warranty available!
