Design a look you’ll love.

This is going to be a beautiful decision. Shopping for new shingles is the perfect opportunity to increase the curb appeal of your entire home. Your roof can make up more than half of your home’s exterior so it should complement your home’s style and exterior colour scheme.

As you browse your shingle choices, think about how the look of your new roof could improve upon the roof you have now. Click here to learn more.

  • Should you choose a different colour? Consider the look of your home’s exterior. A new shingle colour could bring your look together. Or even inspire a new palette.
  • Have you seen the granules? Owens Corning shingles get their rich colour from a combination of coloured granules. Using the colours of these granules, you can coordinate all of your home’s exterior elements - the paint, siding, brick or stone. Click here to see the impact that TruDefinition® Duration® Series Shingles Designer Colours™ Collection can make on your home’s aesthetics and perceived value.
  • Do you need more dimension? If your home’s exterior is monochromatic, think about adding shingles that appear thicker and give your roof a rich, textured look. For homes that already have a detailed exterior, you could choose softer, more muted shingles. Owens Corning Roofing offers a variety of roofing shingles that carry a unique combination of these characteristics.

Shingle colour isn’t the only factor that affects the look of your house. The shingle style you choose also impacts curb appeal.

If you prefer a more consistent, smooth look to your roof, your best bet is the Supreme three-tab shingles. Berkshire® Collection, Oakridge® and TruDefinition® Duration® Series dimensional shingles add more visual interest to your roof by giving it a three-dimensional appearance.

If you’re really into color, the TruDefinition® Duration® Series Shingles Designer Colours Collection is the ideal shingle for you - offering dimensional tone and texture that work beautifully with a variety of colour palettes. Click here to learn more.

Proper planning and knowing what you want can head off a lot of potential problems and delays - whether you need a new roof or just some repairs. Let’s look at common considerations in new roof projects and significant roof repair.

Consider your performance needs

Durability, expected life span, and resistance to wind and algae growth are all important considerations in the selection of your new shingles. Your climate - annual rainfall, relative humidity, typical wind conditions and storms, etc. - impacts the importance of these features.

Each Owens Corning shingle series and collection states its rating for wind resistance and algae resistance. Owens Corning shingle warranties range from 25-years to limited lifetime terms. To learn more about Owens Corning’s roofing warranties, click here.
