You Need More Than Just Shingles to Protect Your Home!

In order to protect your home, you are going to need more than just some great shingles.  Owens Corning suggests a Total Protection Roofing System composed of many different essential roofing products.  These products are layered to work together to maximize the performance and durability of your Lake of the Ozarks roof. While high-quality shingles and underlayment products protect against the weather outside, ventilation products are needed to help balance air flow to control temperature and humidity inside the attic.

Owens Corning Total Protection Roofing System

  • Work below the surface to help guard vulnerable areas where water and ice dams can do the most damage to a roof: eaves, valleys, dormers and skylights.
  • A series of products, each created to meet the needs of a specific roofing application or climate.
  • Especially important for use in areas that experience extreme weather.
  • Apply WeatherLock underlayment on slopes 2:12 to 4:12 across full deck to help prevent leaks and ice dams.
  • Deck Defense High Performance Roof Underlayment - Durable synthetic construction provides an immediate defense layer so strong it can protect your roof for up to 6 months** of exposure plus act as a secondary water-shedding barrier for long-term moisture protection.
  • Fiberglas TM Reinforced Felt Underlayment - Adds an extra layer of protection between the shingles and the entire roof deck to help prevent damage from wind-driven rain.

  • The first step in the proper installation of the shingles.
  • Provide a clean look with a straight edge at the eave and along the rake.
  • Continuous sealant bead helps prevent blow-offs and water infiltration in a vulnerable area of the roof.
  • Your roof comprises up to 50% of the face of the house you see from the curb. Shingles are the star player in curb appeal. Owens Corning offers a wide range of shapes, sizes and colors to choose from.
  • Shingles not only serve as the first layer of defense against the forces of nature, they also help define the character of the home.
  • From innovations such as the patented SureNail Technology to the multiple granule colors and shadowing used in the TruDefinition Duration shingles, Owens Corning shingles are designed to provide strength and durability without sacrificing beauty.
  • The VentSure Balanced Air Ventilation System features a wide variety of intake and exhaust products as well as active and passive options.
  • These products are designed to work together to help prevent heat and moisture build-up that can lead to premature aging and cracking of wood and other roofing materials. Unwanted heat also can transfer back down into living areas - which reduces energy efficiency.
  • VentSure Ridge Vents provide an attractive more uniform and finished look.
  • VentSure Roof vent products offer another ventilation option and are available in multiple styles and colors.

  • Add an attractive, finished look to your roof's peaks and help protect the ridge vent.
  • Hip & Ridge shingles are compatible with the full line of Owens Corning™ roofing shingles.
  • Warranted concurrent with Owens Corning™ shingles installed for a balanced and protected system.
