What Is Total Protection Roofing System: Part 2

Our last post discussed the importance of having a solid roofing system. In this post, we’re taking the conversation to the next level—building a new roof. It seems overwhelming, but Bone Dry Roofing can help you with our knowledge and expertise.

Total Protection Roofing System

The Owens Corning Roofing System

In roofing, the quality of materials cannot be compromised, and that’s why Owens CorningⓇ stands out. Owens Corning has been an industry leader for decades, offering long-lasting, weather-resistant roofing systems. From its technologically advanced materials to its innovative designs, an Owens Corning roofing system is an investment that pays off in the long run.

Components of an Owens Corning Total Protection Roofing SystemⓇ

Total Protection Roofing System from Owens Corning combines several components as one integrated system to protect your home. These components are designed to seal and defend your roof, let it breathe, and provide comfort for its residents. The system consisting of layers of materials gives ultimate protection to your family’s home.


Water-proof barriers seal your roof properly, deterring rot and mold. These barriers prevent ice damming, rain, and regular water flow.

  • Ice & Water Barrier: Aids in protecting your roof’s skylights, valleys, chimneys and eaves— where water tends to gather or flow. This barrier prevents damage from shingle blow-off, ice damming, and wind-driven rain.

  • Synthetic Underlayment: This underlayment provides a water-shedding barrier beneath the shingles as the final line of defense for your roof. It also protects against damage from wind-driven rain.


You can add a robust layer of defense with strong adhesion that resists blowoffs and aids in shedding water away from the roof deck. This layer aids in defending the most vulnerable parts of your roof, like eaves and peaks.

  • Starter Shingles: This type of shingles ensures the eaves and rake—areas susceptible to strong winds—have a straight edge and a good seal.

  • Shingles: This layer is the initial line of defense on your roof. It is reinforced with long-lasting protection and provides aesthetic value in various hues and designs.

  • Hip & Ridge Shingles: This type of shingles adds additional defense and beautiful dimension to your roof’s hips and ridge, which are particularly susceptible to strong winds. This is crafted to blend in with and enhance Owens Corning shingles.


Optimize your attic’s airflow by reducing the accumulation of heat and moisture that causes mold growth, ice damming and roof degradation. With these layers, the movement of air in your attic better controls moisture and temperature.

  • Intake Ventilation: Warm, humid air is continuously replaced by cool, dry air in this layer, creating a balanced flow and appropriate ventilation.

  • Exhaust Ventilation: This type of ventilation reduces the possibility of ice damming. It helps control the attic’s temperature and humidity to protect your roof’s inner parts from heat and moisture damage.


Improve and maximize your home’s comfort and value by adding this attic insulation that complies with the current Department of Energy standards.

  • Blow-In Insulation: This type of insulation creates a barrier between the cozy air inside your home’s living space and the chilly or extremely hot outdoors.

Roofing systems should not only provide aesthetics but also safety, efficiency, and peace of mind. If you want to know more about the components of an Owens Corning Total Protection Roofing System, visit their website to try their interactive Build Your RoofTM tool.
