I see they have two cool roof options.


We have "Duration" shingles on our house and shed. They seem to be holding up quite well after almost 10 years.

Unfortunately, their cool roof shingles are only available in California.

The Owens Corning website says they have 90% market share of the the professional roofer market.

Hard to believe but maybe they do!

Lucky you!

My roof is on its last legs.

It never leaks because the shingles and insulation were apparently decorative in function.

I have to collect little pieces of Styrofoam on the ground when the winds goes to about 20 mph.

I mitigate this somewhat by keeping the gutters clean.

They have a tendency to build up dirt and grow weeds.

Had I the money to replace it I'd remodel the bathroom instead.

Good luck, SK.

Big Al, that's good to know! I'm surprised the cool ones are more widely available. I'll ask the roofers just in case though.

I missed that detail. That's crazy!
