"A roof is a valuable, smart investment, but it can also dramatically enhance the look of a home.   Homeowners should absolutely LOVE the look of their new roof," said Sue Burkett, marketing manager for Owens Corning Roofing and Asphalt.

Owens Corning Duration® Series Designer Colors Collection shingles are available in seven vibrant color combinations and are meant to evoke feelings that match their names--from Summer Harvest to Sand Dune to Merlot. Five of the seven colors are available throughout the entire U.S. Whatever color homeowners select, they can rest easy knowing that all Duration® Series Designer Color Collection shingles come with SureNail® Technology for maximum performance and wind protection of up to 130-MPH winds.***
