Owens Corning Roofing Warranties

There are four levels of warranty protection when you have Owens Corning shingles protecting your home. But better understand what each warranty offers, here are the aspects common to all the warranties:

  • Tru PROtection® – Each Owens Corning warranty begins with Tru PROtection®. This includes the cost of labor to replace, recover, or repair products if they are determined to be defective.
  • Material-Only Coverage – Once the Tru PROtection® Period has expired, the warranty will provide coverage for materials only. The cost of labor will not be covered.
  • Blow Off Coverage – After your shingles have achieved thermal sealing they will be covered under the warranty if they experience wind damage or blow-offs in winds up to the level between 110 mph and 130 mph.
  • StreakGuard™ Algae Resistance – This is coverage against brown-black staining which can appear on your roof due to the growth of blue-green algae (cyanobacteria Gloeocapsa magma).

Standard Product Limited Warranty

This basic warranty level is available to anyone installing Owens Corning products; you don’t need to work with a certified contractor. It is good for the lifetime of your roof and comes with Tru PROtection for the first 10 years, blow off coverage for the first 15 years, material-only coverage after 10 years, and algae resistance for the first 10 years.

There’s no extra fee for this warranty, but you don’t get workmanship coverage. This may be a good option if you’re building a temporary residence, outbuilding, or addition.

System Protection Limited Warranty

It is only available to the manufacturer’s Preferred or Platinum Contractor, requires three Owens Corning components on your roof, and has an additional cost.
