The Owens Corning Total Protection Roofing System®
There is a lot more that goes into a roof than just the shingles that you see on the exterior. A high quality shingle is very important but what goes on underneath matters too. We are proud installers of the Owens Corning Total Protection Roofing System®. This system is designed to do 3 things:
Seal—The last layer between your roof decking and natures elements is a high quality underlayment. This is the final line of defense on your roof covering that works to prevent water intrusion and mold from entering your home. The next layer is the ice and water barrier which is an additional layer of protection used in areas of your home where water tends to collect such as valleys, skylights and chimneys. This layer also ensures that water flows properly off of your roof and prevents damning.
Defend—This is the shingle layer that you see. This layer is aesthetically appealing and provides the curb appeal for your home but ultimately this layer takes the brunt of natures elements. It must be strong and durable. The shingles we use on your home are designed to take on wind speeds of up to 130 mph with no damage. The Hip & Ridge shingles are then installed to provide a finished look to the roofs peak but also to defend the ridge vent and other vulnerable areas of the roof to water intrusion.
Breathe—Intake and exhaust ventilation are then installed to ensure proper air flow in and out of the attic. Optimizing the air flow in your attic reduces heat and moisture buildup that can lead to ice damming, roof deterioration, and mold infestation. This helps air flow through the attic to manage temperature and moisture.
