Entry Level 3 Tab Shingle Choice:
The entry level shingle from Owens Corning come sin the form of a very traditional looking 3-Tab shingle the Supreme AR 25. Available in 13 colors to blend to nearly any homes color scheme will help those homeowners on a budget but still needing to match a particular design. These shingles are one of the most widely stocked shingles at home improvement warehouses such as Menards. They come 4 bundles to a square providing a true 100 sq. ft. of coverage. If a budget conscience yet proven reliable shingle is what you are looking for this may be the way to go. Please keep in mind for only around 10% material cost more you could upgrade to a more widely popular and modern dimensional shingle. The next step up in the line would be Oakridge shingles which is Owens Corning entry level dimensional shingle. With the cost difference being so minimal now we HIGHLY recommended staying away from this first generation style shingles.

good price. good color options
60mph is more than most places will ever need. 110mph? really…do you live by a ocean?
Just had these put on. They are $300 cheaper than the upgrade OC offering.
Looking at Dallas winds average for the year high is 7mph…..60mph is more than enough.
color is great. its a good brand but next time will get the newer “look”. Then again how often do I look at my roof?
I had these put on our home about 7 years ago and we are already replacing them , the company won;t do anything and said they weren’t installed right or something. Guess what the roofer guy is retired and we can’t find him. Going with GAF this time hope we have better luck.
Just replaced some old Owens Corning shingles and they lasted abouted 20 years from what I can tell. We wanted to get the same old style I guess as our pole barn has this too and wanted to keep everything the same, If these last as long as the first ones I will be more than happy.
Seem OK to me, they were the cheapest and do the job. Wish they offered a few more colors at Menards, looks like you could special order them but really couldn’t wait.. Overall nothing special but they work
