Owens Corning Showcases Forward-Looking Building Products At International Builders' Show

Stocks in this article: OC

The system includes ventilation, hip and ridge shingles, underlayment, ice and water barriers and starter shingles. And, as part of a balanced air ventilation system, Owens Corning™ Roofing introduces the new VentSure ® InFlow™ Vent, an excellent solution for soffit-less, exposed-rafter homes. The patent-pending design helps maximizes ventilation by providing intake air on the lower roof drawing airflow through the vents at the top of the roof to help reduce heat and moisture buildup in the attic that can lead to problems like ice damming and roof deterioration.

In addition to performance, new to the Total Protection Roofing System™ is the addition of new Artisan Colors to the ever-popular Oakridge ® Shingle line. These Artisan Colors help give homeowners more aesthetic options with shades that blend artistry and craftsmanship. The Colors are specially designed for regional preference. 

Available in early February, the new Artisan Colors will help build a bridge from Owens Corning's traditional Oakridge ® color offerings to its high-contrast TruDefinition ® Duration ® Shingle colors.

Code Compliant, Energy-Efficient Wall System

During IBS, Owens Corning is showcasing its ResidentialComplete Wall Systems. Recognizing the interdependence of each aspect of the building envelope, the systems offer a variety of exterior wall insulation solutions that provide energy-efficiency, help save an average of more than 25 percent on heating and cooling costs for the opaque wall surface modeled[2], and provide a complete air and water barrier, along with acoustical performance qualities for residential applications.

Owens Corning ResidentialComplete Wall Systems provide year-round comfort and energy-efficient savings that both builders and homeowners appreciate. The systems include a variety of Owens Corning insulation product solutions including FOAMULAR ® Continuous Insulation Sheathing Extruded Polystyrene (XPS), EcoTouch ® Insulation and JointSealR ® Foam Joint Tape. In addition, ResidentialComplete™ Wall Systems are among the first in the industry to meet the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) requirements. 

Other Show Highlights

Other highlights at IBS include an educational session by Owens Corning executives titled "Mythbusters – Exploring Misconceptions in Green Building," which covers five commonly discussed "myth-conceptions" in building science. Taking place Thursday at 2:30 p.m., the highly engaging presentation mixes building science with humor to explore the truth behind common questions facing the building industry.

To generate additional excitement in the booth, Owens Corning is inviting all IBS attendees to participate in the creation of a large-scale commemorative painting. Visitors to the Owens Corning booth will help paint a six-by-eight-foot mural of the iconic Pink Panther™ under the expert guidance of professional artist, Kelly Sullivan.

In addition, Owens Corning's building science experts are conducting in-booth demonstrations of the new WUFI Passive software. This powerful new software tool combines passive energy modeling with WUFI's hygrothermal modeling capabilities, enabling the proper design of buildings across varied climate zones. Booth visitors attending a WUFI session also have the opportunity to enter for a chance to win an iPad.
