"Estate gray with holes"
We purchased 63 bundles of Owens Corning Estate gray shingles from Lowes. Lot number mdw 1011. Of course, after placing the bundles on the roof, the contractor showed us several bundles with large holes and foil in the new shingles. After several thousand dollars, and time wasted, I will see what, if anything oc will do. The old roof was better than the new oc shingles that we just purchasd.

"Review of Owens Corning 25 year shingles."
I bought these shingles in April of last year to replace my existing shingles that were on my house. I really liked the price of these shingles. They came in many different colors that were in stock. We bought them at Lowes and had them professionally installed. The roofer actually recommended these shingles because of the durabily and quality of these shingles. These shingles were a lot heavier duty with much better wind resistance that the shingles I had before. I have only had to have one repair on the set on shingles that was due to tree limb falling on top of the house. I recommended these shingles to my dad who needed his replaced due to old age and he was very happy with the pricing and quality. I will stay with this brand in the future when I have to replace shingles on my house or rental properties.

"The perfects shingles for my house!"
We recently got new shingles last december because of storm damage. We knew we wanted the premium shingles because they last longer and added value to our home. We really love the style of the shingles and the color driftwood because it matches my dark red brick perfectly. The durability of these shingles is also way better than the builder grade shingles we had before. It also makes our house look soooo much better. There really are no dislikes so far. We have not had any repairs done so far and I don't see any in the foreseeable future. These shingles are tough and seem to hold up much better in high winds than our old shingles which would sometimes actually blow off the house. I would love to use this Owen Corning again and I plan to suggest them to several of my friends. They had a great selection of colors and styles so we were able to pick one that complemented our house perfectly. Overall, we just love these shingles and highly recommend them.

"Affordable and very reliable"
I put these shingles on by myself about a year ago. The house we bought really needed new shingles. The tree in the front yard had caused moss to grow on a small part of the roof and it had already had two layers put on from the previous owner. After a total tear off of the old shingles and laying the ice and water guard i began to lay the new shingles down. One thing that i found discerning about the shingles was that i would find a couple shingles in each pack to be a little torn around the top where i was nailing them down. They weren't major tears, but enough where i kind of wondered whether it was a product defect or just a shipping issue. On the upside, i was very happy that none of the rips caused any problems with nailing them down. All in all they were a great price for what i was looking for. They had a very good rating for wind and with the lifetime warranty you can't go wrong. We got a darker color shingle and even with all the sun, they have not faded and we have not seen any moss grow yet where the tree overhangs the roof. I would definitely recommend this product to my family and friends. Owen's Corning seems to have a great take on the product.

"Roof Shingles Long Lasting and Look Great!"
Our Owens Corning shingles have been on the roof of our home for 8 years. They were easy to install by my husband and a friend of ours who is a handy-man. I love the color of the shingles and their long-lasting durability even in Florida heat, wind and rain. The only thing I don't like is that the color is fading over time but this is Florida so probably to be expected. We have had to replace a couple of shingles when a large tree branch fell on our roof about 3 years ago. The repair went well since we had some shingles left over from the install. My husband was able to replace the damaged shingles by himself in just a few hours time. I would definitely buy this same brand again or suggest it to a friend. I may choose a lighter color next time because of the fading.

"Good not great shingles"
I've owned these shingles for a little over 5 months now and have had zero problems with them. The reason I bought them was because we recently had to replace the original shingles on the 25 to 35 year old house we bought about 5 years ago. These shingles were easy to install, unlike the ones I just took off of the house which were a pain and took forever, and are a little bit above average in quality and consistency from shingle to shingle. Other than the consistency there is nothing too special about them, just a normal shingle with 3 tabs that are easy to cut if needed, but they get the job done. They looked great on house and the store salesman said they go good on almost any house with the right shade to them. I would by this product again if I had another house to shingle.

"Oakridge Shingles are great"
We have owned the Oakridge Shingles for almost seven years now. To this day, we have not had one problem with these shingles. They have held up extremely well; through a mini-tornado, tropical storms, a hurricane, and intense heat and humidity. I must say, the shingles look almost as good as the first day they were installed; not one has buckled or peeled away from the roof. Even though we do not have any large trees in our development, I frequently check the gutters on my house. Over the years, I have noticed very minimal sand run-off from the shingles. Another great feature is that the shingles are guaranteed to resist the growth of algae. I have noticed that many other homes in our development have problems with algae and moss taking over the siding and roofing, I am glad that i dont have to worry about that. The warranty is limited lifetime, but honestly, I do not foresee ever having to utilize it. I couldn't be happier with the roof over our heads! As a homeowner, there is always something around the house that needs fixed. It's truly nice to know that I don't have to worry about climbing up on my roof to make repairs or for preventative maintenance measures. I only wish that more products were made with the quality of my roof!

" A Reliable Set of Shingles."
There was a bad hail storm in our town last year and we ended up having to replace our roof. The roofers used Owens brand shingles and we have not had one probelm with them at all. Our area is prone to bad thunderstorms and hail and so far they have withstood everything that has been thrown it's way. We have had the shingles over a year and they don't seem to be leaking at all. A bad thing about the shingles though is they only are rated to 60 mi an hour winds and unfortunately in Oklahoma it is not uncommon for winds to be higher than that. If they wind gust are too much they will come up. When that happens either the homeowner has to nail them back down or hire someone else to do it. I have recommended the same brand of shingles and roofers to a friend who also had hail damage. She is satisfied with the product as well.

"Owens Corning roofing shingles can't be beat for quality."
I have been a homeowner for thirty years and been through a few roofs in that time. I got the Owens Corning shingles after doing some internet research and comparing brands. I have had these particular shingles on my roof for about three months now and love the color and protection they afford. "Harbor Fog" was a different color that I would normally choose, but the color compliments my house. The shingles have held up well against some much needed heavy rain we have recently had in Texas. The only drawback is the price, but the old saying, :you get what you pay for" rings true with roofing shingles. I have yet to repair or replace the shingles and would certainly recommend this line to friends. I have recommended them to my neighbors to get them for the color choice, strength and good reputation this company has. When it is time to replace the roof again, hopefully not for many years, I plan to go with the same company and have the same good results.

"Installing a New Roof"
In September of 2009, my husband and I built a two-stall garage that attached to the house. With the house having 20 year old shingles, it was time to replace them with new. At first, the idea of having a metal roof was extremely appealing, but the cost was too much for our budget. The most reputable brand of Owens Corning asphalt shingles was relatively inexpensive and we had positive past experience with them. So we chose the asphalt shingles over the metal shingles. Since we had done the construction on the garage ourselves, using Owens Corning shingles was the best choice because they are easy to install. What I dislike about our choice is they are time consuming to install. Also asphalt shingles are somewhat easily blown off during high winds or storms requiring frequent repair. However, I am satisfied that we purchased the best product within our budget for our home. With the advantage of the 20 year warranty, I would definitely recommend Owens Corning to others.
