It takes more than just shingles to protect your home. It takes an integrated system of components and layers designed to withstand the forces of nature outside while controlling temperature and humidity inside. The Owens Corning™ Total Protection Roofing System™ gives you the assurance that all of your Owens Corning™ roofing components are working together to help increase the performance of your roof – and to enhance the comfort and enjoyment of those who live beneath it.
Seal – Helps create a water-proof barrier
Block water resulting from ice damming, wind-driven rains and normal water flow. A properly sealed roof helps prevent rot and mold.
Defend – Helps protect against nature’s elements
Add a tough, yet beautiful layer of defense with strong adhesion that resists blow offs and helps shed water away from the roof deck. Helps protect the most vulnerable areas such as eaves and peaks.
Breathe – For balanced attic ventilation
Reduce heat and moisture buildup that can lead to ice damming, roof deterioration and mold infestation. Helps air flow through the attic to manage temperature and moisture.
When you have a Total Protection Roofing System, you have the opportunity to increase your protection with one of several Owens Corning Roofing System Limited Warranties, which extend the coverage of your roofing components and may even provide workmanship coverage.
Not only do they increase the character and curb appeal of your home, they also provide excellent protection to your roof’s peak. Owens Corning™ Hip & Ridge Shingles provide an important finishing element to your roof.

PVC is It is highly resistant to UV rays and is available in a wide variety of colors, including highly-reflective light colors eligible for LEED points and EnergyStar credits. PVC roofs are installed with heat-welded seams and have the ability to withstand harsh chemicals.
ThermoPlastic Olefin (TPO) also consists of two layers and a reinforcing scrim, and features heat-welded seam construction. It is becoming increasingly common in commercial roofing, however, at a lower cost than PVC.
Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) is a rubbery singly-ply roof membrane traditionally black in color, although white EPDM is available. EPDM is one of the oldest single-ply membranes in the industry, however, it does not feature the heat-welded seam construction of PVC and TPO
