Total Protection Roofing System®, Part 2: Build Your Roof

Owens Corning’s Total Protection Roofing System® is composed of various layers and components that enable it to deliver top-notch performance. In this post, Bone Dry Roofing – West discusses how these parts all work together to protect your home and how you can customize your Total Protection Roofing System using an interactive tool.

Total Protection Roofing System


At the heart of any roofing system are the shingles. Owens Corning offers a wide range of shingles, including their TruDefinition® Duration® Series, which are designed for optimal performance and aesthetics. These shingles come in various styles and colors to complement your home’s architectural style and your personal preferences. The shingles not only enhance the curb appeal of your home but also provide crucial protection against the elements, including wind, rain and UV rays.

Ice and Water Barrier

Beneath the shingles lies an important layer—the ice and water barrier. Owens Corning’s WeatherLock® self-sealing ice and water barrier products are installed to create a waterproof barrier that prevents water infiltration, especially in vulnerable areas such as valleys, eaves and around penetrations like chimneys and skylights. This layer is essential for protecting your home from water damage and leaks.

Synthetic Underlayment

Under the ice and water barrier, a synthetic underlayment is applied. Owens Corning offers high-quality synthetic underlayment that provides an additional layer of protection against moisture and acts as a secondary defense against leaks. It also serves as a slip-resistant surface for roofers during installation.

Starter Shingles

These are installed along the eaves and rakes of the roof. Owens Corning’s starter shingles are specially designed to create a secure starting point for your roof. They help prevent shingle blow-offs and wind-driven rain from infiltrating the roof edges, adding an extra layer of defense.

Hip and Ridge Shingles

The hip and ridge of your roof are vulnerable areas that require special attention. Owens Corning’s hip and ridge shingles are designed to provide a finished and protective look to these areas. They not only enhance the appearance of your roof but also reinforce the most vulnerable points, ensuring long-lasting performance.


Proper attic ventilation is crucial for maintaining a healthy roofing system and a comfortable home environment. Owens Corning offers a range of ventilation products, including VentSure® intake and exhaust vents. These vents work together to create a balanced airflow in your attic, allowing heat and moisture to escape, which can help prolong the life of your roof and maintain energy efficiency in your home.
