Owens Corning’s TruDefinition® Duration® Series Shingles isn’t all beauty; American contractors and homeowners love it for its incredible performance too. It comes with the patented SureNail® Technology, a groundbreaking innovation that lends every Duration Series shingle incredible strength and durability.
The SureNail Technology creates the line between good and great shingles, literally. What’s so special about it? All States Home Improvement explains why this Owens Corning roofing innovation is such a game-changer:
Minimizing Workmanship Errors
With the SureNail Technology, Duration Series shingles have a unique, tough-engineered, and woven-fabric strip in the nailing zone. It defines the optimal fastening area, eliminating the guessing in nailing.
Even the most experienced roofers get confused with multiple nailing lines, which are present in many shingle products. This sort of ambiguity increases the chances of blow-offs, causing premature roof failures. The SureNail Technology guides expert roofers, including us, where to point the nail gun exactly and avoid creating too many holes on the shingles. In turn, we can guarantee faultless work the first time.
Elevating Wind Resistance
Apart from specifying the best nailing area, SureNail strips feature Owens Corning’s proprietary Tru-Bond® sealant. Its strong adhesion is the secret to the outstanding gripping power of Duration Series roofing shingles.
In addition, it creates a “triple-layer” reinforcement. It happens when the fabric overlays two layers of shingle, forming the common bond area. Because we can fasten these three roofing layers precisely with fewer nails, Duration Series shingles can withstand the force of a 130 MPH wind.
Allowing Shingles to Lay Flatter
The tough nailing strip helps us to lay every shingle flat, reducing the chances of deformation over time. As a result, expect your roofing system to maintain a uniform appearance. It wouldn’t show wave-like characteristics, which would harm your home’s curb appeal.
Indeed, the SureNail Technology gives you a number of reasons to choose Duration Series shingles as your replacement roof. But to ensure excellent installation, choose a credentialed roofer. Contact us today to schedule your no-obligation consultation and get a free estimate for your project.
