Having a reliable nail line makes all the difference between good and great shingles. A typical shingle installation would consist of several nails to a shingle mat. Use a fewer nails and the shingles run the risk of being pulled apart by strong winds. If too many nails are present, however, the roof deck would get too porous, increasing the chances of leaks.
Leading roofing systems manufacturer Owens Corning introduced SureNail® Technology, a technological breakthrough in roofing in St Louis, MO, and everywhere else. Available on all Owens Corning Duration® Series shingles, SureNail is a highly flexible woven fabric embedded into the nailing area during the roofing installation.
What It’s Made Of
Made of a tough woven reinforcing fabric, SureNail Technology employs a triple layer of reinforcement that occurs when the fabric overlays the common bond of the shingle laminate layers. Combined with Owens Corning Tru-Bond™ sealant, this creates a stronger grip that doubles as an effective seal between shingle layers.
What the Installation Process Entails
Accuracy during installation is important. Nails placed too low could leave exposed nail heads and even start leaks. Place them too high can make them vulnerable and easily blown off. The SureNail strip provides a readily visible guide for installers, which means they never have to guess where the nails go. This means that your Duration Series residential roofing in St Louis, MO, will be installed with consistency and accuracy.
SureNail Technology provides up to ¾” common bond area at the nailing area, providing greater nail blow through and increased nail pull resistance. This will be important for commercial roofing in St Louis, MO. The patented design adds a superior grip to Duration Series shingles, delivering wind warranty performance of up to 130 mph with just four nails. That’s 33% less nails than standard shingle installations. This is made possible without compromising its strength.
