Wind and hail damage is very costly. In fact, between 1991 and 1995, this kind of damage resulted in about $8 billion of insurance payouts each year. Roof damage caused by wind and hail made up a significant portion of these payouts. When asphalt shingles are damaged by hail, they can lose large amounts of granules, lose material at the edges, and suffer penetration by the hailstones.
Sure Nail Technology
The innovative features of Owens Corning™ TruDefinition® Duration® Series Shingles with patented SureNail® Technology offer the following:
Featuring a tough, woven engineered reinforcing fabric in the nailing area that promotes easy, fast and consistent nail gun fastening.
Triple Layer Protection®
A unique “triple layer” of reinforcement occurs when the fabric overlays the common bond of the shingle laminate layers that offers excellent fastener holding power.
Our enhanced Tru-Bond®† sealant grips tightly to the engineered fabric nailing strip on the shingle below.
Excellent Adhesive Power
Specially formulated, extra-wide adhesive bands help keep shingle layers laminated together.
