A CBS news station in Philadelphia, PA recently posted an interesting piece about the match-up between Owens Corning Duration and GAF Timberline asphalt shingles. Both are well-known and respected names in the roofing industry. The contest compared the two different brands to see how well they stood up against snow, ice, heat and other climate variables. You can read the full report here.
While in the end, the testers stated that you can’t go wrong with either shingle, the Owens Corning Duration shingle was declared the winner. The testers stated that “the final decision comes down to the fact that Owens Corning Duration Shingles offer the revolutionary SureNail Technology which increases the wind warranty and prevents loose or missing shingles in a wind storm.” They added that by coupling these shingles with a GAF Deck Armor Underlayment, you can have the best of both worlds.
