There are many different manufacturers that promote “great roofing systems.” Professional roofers, through experience and extensive research, have been able to weed through the “cheap” shingles and find the best products. For a homeowner, though, these claims for greatness can be disappointing – and expensive. That’s why our team at Midwest Exteriors has done extensive research on the durability and affordability of various shingles to be able to recommend a roofing system that you can trust. One of the manufacturers we love working with is Owens Corning™.
Patented, proven technology
The beauty of these shingles lies in the manufacturing process itself. The composition enables them to stand up to the test of extreme seasonal temperatures in the Twin Cities area.
TruDefinition® Duration® shingles offer a triple layer of protection where you need it most: where the woven fabric of SureNail overlaps the laminated layers of asphalt. When a shingle is layered, the sealant strongly adheres to the SureNail strip on the shingle below. When the nails are driven through this strip, it offers a tight grip and consistent installation.
Colors and Contrasts
Owens Corning’s TruDefinition Duration shingles are offered in a wide variety of colors that add dimension and beauty to every roof. Contrasting, vibrant colors are available that will enhance the curb appeal of your home. Of course, since choosing the perfect color can be challenging, Owens Corning offers a helpful tool to give you the opportunity to see the shingles on your home before you’ve spent a dime.
Duration shingles are manufactured right here in Minneapolis, MN. This also means that Duration shingles have been tested to withstand our brutal Minnesota winters and hot summers. Choosing shingles from Owens Corning is a great way to help hardworking Minnesotans maintain great jobs to support their families.
The standard warranty that comes from this company is a limited lifetime warranty. As an Owens Corning Platinum Roofing Contractor, Midwest Exteriors Plus is certified to offer an extended lifetime workmanship warranty on your roof. This warranty is transferable to the next homeowner, adding value to your home’s resale price.
