Owens Corning’s StreakGuard Algae Protection
Algae can be a nuisance on your roof, and it can leave your shingles with unsightly black streaks. Owens Corning’s StreakGuard technology inhibits algae growth, which ensures that your attic remains impenetrable and moisture-free. Plus, Owens Corning’s StreakGuard protection comes with a 10-year warranty.
Owens Corning’s StreakGuard protection is available for Woodmore, Woodcrest, Devonshire, Berkshire, and some Duration-style shingles.
Owens Corning’s SureNail Technology
For the most durable shingles, you can count on Owens Corning’s SureNail technology. Shingles with SureNail have added durability, thanks to a fabric strip located in the nailing area of the shingle. This strip adds gripping power, while improving the stability of the shingle, and reducing the likelihood of a tear. Owens Corning notes all of the features and benefits of their SureNail technology:
- “Patented SureNail® Technology — Only from Owens Corning and featured on our Duration® Series shingles.
- Breakthrough Design — The tough-engineered woven-fabric nailing strip is embedded in the shingle to create a strong, durable fastener zone.
- Triple Layer Protection®+ — A unique “triple layer” of reinforcement occurs when the fabric overlays the two shingle layers, called the common bond area.
- Outstanding Grip — The SureNail® strip enhances the already amazing grip of our proprietary Tru-Bond® sealant.
- Exceptional Wind Resistance — The SureNail® grip helps deliver 130-MPH wind warranty* performance with fewer nails than required by most competitors.”
Owens Corning’s SureNail technology is available in their Duration Storm line of shingles.
