Owens Corning Roofing And Asphalt Reinvents Shingle Sample Boards

TOLEDO, Ohio, Aug. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Demonstrating its ongoing commitment to roofing professionals, Owens Corning Roofing and Asphalt introduces a new collection of shingle samples. Designed to address specific needs articulated by contractors, this new approach to samples will help improve the sales process for professionals and their customers.


New samples are encased inside a clear vinyl sleeve, helping to prevent messy granule loss and eliminating the need for staples that can cause damage to surfaces in the home. The sleeves also work to protect samples against the natural wear and tear that occurs during storage and day-to-day use.

"Owens Corning™ Roofing regularly solicits feedback from its customers to help inform the development of new products and services that will address their unmet needs and ultimately help support their business," said Matt Lawver, Owens Corning Roofing and Asphalt contractor services leader. "We've taken a step away from the traditional sample board approach by developing a tool that works better for both the contractor and their end user, the homeowner."

The reinvented shingle samples fit inside an optional easy-to-carry case and weigh up to 80 percent less than traditional sample boards. The result is a light and organized sales kit that makes it more convenient for contractors to carry a variety of shingle colors and options in from the office or truck, compared to traditional sample boards.

Owens Corning™ Roofing Platinum Preferred Contractors, a selected group of top-tier roofing contractors, currently have access to the new shingle samples and the sample case through the Owens Corning ProConnect™ Resource center, As an added benefit, sample orders are shipped to professionals in just 3-5 business days.
