There's a line between a good shingle and a great shingle
It’s the nailing line on your shingles. The difference between a good shingle and a great shingle is having SureNail® Technology, strength, and durability are built into every Duration Series shingle, thanks to the unique fabric strip in the nailing area.
Duration Series shingles have a 130MPH Wind Warranty Vs. Oakridge series shingles having a 110MPH Wind Warranty.
The Duration Series have a TruDefinition color platform.
TruDefinition® is the color design platform trademark on shingles that are specially formulated to capture the bright, vibrant hues and dramatic shades that showcase the aesthetic appeal of your home. Shingles feature multiple-granule colors and shadowing to provide an extraordinary look that will enhance your home and complement its natural surroundings.
Which shingle is right for you?
We install both Oakridge & Duration series shingles and love them both.
If you are looking for a standard roof replacement that will last you 25-30 years then I would recommend replacing your shingles with Owens Corning Oakridge.
If you have a nicer home that you want to invest in, a wider budget & you want to increase your curb appeal then I would say upgrade to Duration shingles.
