History in Shingle Manufacturing
In 1935, Corning Glass and Owens-Illinois merged their companies to pursue the manufacture of glass fiber. In 1938, the joint venture became known as Owens- Corning Fiberglass® Corporation. In 1977 they purchased the Lloyd Fry Roofing Company and Trumbull Asphalt and began using their facilities to manufacture Fiberglas® mat-based shingles. In 1993 they elected to make only residential roofing products.
All Owens Corning shingles come with a Standard Limited Warranty that is included at time of purchase.
