As the sixth color to be named Shingle Color of the Year, Bourbon delivers a versatile, smooth finish and straight-up style to the home’s roof.
The shingle collection integrates unique combinations of saturated colors for a rich, bold and dimensional effect bringing depth and style to the home’s roof. The line also features patented SureNail Technology, for advanced performance on the roof.
“The rich blend of granules integrated into the Bourbon color includes a palette of steely gray-blue mixed with black and with shades of toasty butterscotch," said Sue Burkett, strategic marketing manager for roofing at Owens Corning. "The effect is an inviting contrast that entices the eye with soothing brown shades that remind you of rich caramel, worn leather and chocolate, three of my favorites.”
The new shingle color’s versatility is spotlighted in three inspirational style boards. The “Northwest Craftsman” style board distills the crisp and contrasting shades of land and sea. The “Mediterranean” style board gives a design nod to the timeless style of the sun-soaked Mediterranean, evoking easygoing elegance. And the “Modern Prairie” style board inspired by the Midwestern plains leverages monochromatic hues while paying homage to simple and uniquely American elegance.
As Americans continue to invest in home improvements, Owens Corning TruDefinition Duration shingles offer an opportunity to boost curb appeal while contributing to a high-performing roof. Burkett said that today’s homeowners are seeking products that fuse aesthetics and high performance.
“Owens Corning has been awarded the Women’s Choice Award as America’s most recommended roofing products for the fourth consecutive year, and we appreciate that women want both style and functionality when it comes to their homes’ roofs,” Burkett said.
