There’s a line between a good shingle and a great shingle, and that line is the nailing line. This subtle element greatly impacts the appearance and longevity of your roof. Owens Corning leads the way in nailing line advancements. This brand’s revolutionary SureNail Technology is an exclusive feature of the Duration Series line, and it’s taking the roofing installation and repair industry by storm. This technology isn’t just a step up from the norm—it’s leaps and bounds ahead of competing shingles. If you’re looking for a tougher, longer-lasting, better-protected roof, choose shingles with Owens Corning SureNail Technology.
Everything SureNail Technology Has to Offer
With Owens Corning SureNail Technology, homeowners and roofing companies alike can experience the confidence of a stronger, more durable roof. The nailing zone is where this technology shines, offering a grip that withstands the harshest of elements. The goal isn’t just to keep the shingles attached to the roof—it’s to create a weather-resistant shield that guards your home against high winds and prevents water infiltration. Here’s what sets SureNail Technology apart from the rest.
Incredible Adhesive Power
The adhesive strength of Owens Corning SureNail Technology helps maintain lamination, or the ability to resist layer separation. This is critical for preserving the performance and aesthetics of your roof. Shingles that remain laminated over the years are strong enough to withstand high heat, rain, ice, and other conditions, helping them last longer. Duration Series shingles with SureNail Technology have up to two times better delamination resistance than competing products.
Enhanced Wind Resistance
When the sky turns gray and the wind starts howling, roofing companies brace themselves for an onslaught of roof repair requests. But these don’t come from homes with shingles featuring SureNail Technology. The SureNail strip enhances the already impressive performance of Owens Corning’s proprietary Tru-Bond sealant. This combination delivers incredible wind resistance. The manufacturer is so confident that SureNail Technology is backed by a 130-mph wind warranty.
Breakthrough Roofing Design
The “no guess” wide nailing zone is an impressive roofing innovation that ensures the nails hit their mark every time. The nailing zone is reinforced with a tough, engineered woven-fabric strip, creating a strong, easy-to-see fastener zone. This results in fewer errors, a cleaner look, and a more durable roof over your head.
The unique triple-layer design of SureNail Technology reinforces your roof with impressive outcomes. Standard shingles have only one or two layers in the nailing zone, but the addition of a third engineered fabric overlay makes all the difference. The extra defense gives Duration Series shingles with SureNail Technology up to 2.5 times better resistance against nail pull-through that can rip shingles off the roof deck during high winds. This ensures your shingles stay put, even under the strain of severe weather.
Roofing companies understand the importance of consistent, quality installations. SureNail Technology’s engineered fabric strip in the nailing area ensures that every nail is properly placed. This reduces misfires that require the roof installer to punch another nail hole in your roof. Fewer nails mean fewer entry points and a more secure roof. This translates to better water resistance and a sturdier home.
Reduced Nail Blow-Through
An extra-thick nailing area helps prevent nail blow-through when nails are oven-driven by powerful nail guns. When this happens, an additional nail is needed for secure fastening, which means more holes in your roof deck. Duration Series shingles with SureNail Technology have up to nine times better nail blow-through resistance than competing products.
Superior Aesthetics and Functionality
A roof with flat, evenly installed shingles looks and performs better. Flat-laying shingles mean a smoother surface, fewer places for wind to catch, and a longer life for your roofing installation.
Algae resistance is another standout feature of Owens Corning SureNail Technology. Asphalt roofing installations are prone to discoloration due to algae growth, particularly in warm, humid areas. SureNail-equipped shingles combat this growth, ensuring your roof remains effective and aesthetically pleasing.
