When you live in the Grand Rapids area, strong winds can threaten your home. Living close to Lake Michigan on The Ridge means you could lose your roof to high winds. In fact, this has happened to quite a few homes in the area.
Getting the best wind-resistant roof shingles for your home helps keep it intact during a wind storm. With this kind of roof, you won’t have to deal with loose or missing shingles during strong winds.
SureNail Technology for a Reliable Roof
Owens Corning shingles with SureNail Technology offer the best protection from wind. These shingles are designed and tested to withstand winds of up to 130 MPH. This provides your roof with outstanding wind resistance so you don’t have to worry about it flying off or any parts becoming loose on windy days.
Benefits of SureNail Shingles
Shingles with SureNail Technology offer a triple layer of protection from high winds. For comparison, standard shingles only offer up to two layers of protection. SureNail Technology uses a reinforced nailing zone with a woven fabric strip and Tru-Bond sealant to hold shingles securely in place.
With this technology, your shingles have a common bond area 200 percent wider compared to standard shingles. This significantly reduces the risk of having them pulled off or come loose when high winds occur.
When you have shingles with SureNail Technology installed, you have a lower risk of experiencing a “nail pull” effect in windy conditions. Your shingles will have an easier time staying in place thanks to the added protection and stronger bond this technology provides.
