Replacing a new roof is something most homeowners do only a few times in their lives. Do it right, and you will add decades of beauty, comfort and energy efficiency to your home. If done wrong, you may end up multiplying your initial investment in repeated repair costs. Choosing Weldon Home Exteriors may be the most important thing you do.
A high-performance roof takes more than just shingles. The performance of any roof depends on an entire system of Roofing Essentials® accessory products working and performing together, including ventilation, hip and ridge shingles, underlayment, and attic insulation. The Owens Corning Roofing System is a lineup of essential products that can help provide maximum durability for your roof, and the most protection for your home.
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 color scheme.
As you browse your shingle choices, think about how the look of your new roof could improve upon the roof you have now.
- Should you choose a different color? Consider the look of your home’s exterior. A new shingle color could bring your look together. Or even inspire a new palette.
- Have you seen the granules? Owens Corning shingles get their rich color from a combination of colored granules. Using the colors of these granules, you can coordinate all of your home’s exterior elements - the paint, siding, brick or stone.
- 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 offers a variety of roofing shingles that carry a unique combination of these characteristics.
