Owens Corning roofing, insulation, and contractors
Owens Corning is one of the biggest names in the roofing industry—they invented fiberglass insulation, they have some of the best roofing shingles and warranties in the business and, by all measures, they are a thought leader in roofing installation practices. And, though they might be one of the biggest shingle and insulation manufacturers and distributors throughout the nation, they are also one of the most sustainable.
High-quality Owens Corning roofing products
Owens Corning roofing systems are built to ”seal, defend and breathe,” a motto intended to mimic the watertight, weatherproof, yet breathable nature of their Total Protection Roofing Systems®. Owens corning roofing systems are designed and installed to prevent ice damming, leaks and tears.
And, if installed correctly using proper underlayments, ridge caps and technique, they can also promote attic ventilation up through the soffit and out through the ridge vent. Attic ventilation is important as it minimizes the risk of moisture building up on the underside of the roofing deck, which can lead to premature roofing system failure.
Owens Corning roofing systems are also backed by some of the best warranties you can find in the roofing industry, which protect not only the system, but the workmanship if you use an approved Owens Corning Preferred Contractor.
Owens Corning PINK® Insulation
Owens Corning was the first roofing manufacturer to produce fiberglass as an insulator for residential and commercial applications. Their PINK® fiberglass insulation has evolved over the years, and is now sold as EcoTouch PINK grade 1 insulation, which is comprised of at least 58% recycled content. And, it is certified to be formaldehyde free by UL – GREENGUARD.
Effectively insulating your home or commercial facility with grade 1 insulation do more than save you money on heating and cooling bills—it can also help you achieve a green building certification or a tax credit.
Just as with Owens Corning roofing materials, though, it is important that PINK® insulation must be properly installed to ensure there are no compressions, misalignments or gaps in your insulation.
