Owens Corning Oakridge Shingle Review and Cost

Oakridge Shingle Review and Cost Budget Friendly Dimensional Shingle:  Being the least expensive dimensional styled shingle offered by Owens corning it is a wonderful value.  Many builders of track homes use this shingle for it’s broad appeal and relatively inexpensive price.  You immediately get a big jump in wind warranty protection of up to 130mph.  You’ll also gain a ten year algae resistance due to a coating on the shingle granules.  As with every major roof manufacturer the warranty on this shingle has been increased from the previous 30 Year Limited to a Lifetime Limited warranty.  To our knowledge nothing has changed about the shingle itself. Please keep in mind proper ventilation standard are essential to getting the full life out of this roofing application.

 

 Oakridge Shingle Cost

Expect to pay $70-$85 a square (100 square ft) for these shingles

Lifetime like just about all shingles now.  Does not include workmanship(which most failures are blamed on) unless installed by a Platinum Contractor from Owens Corning.
