Shingles you purchased. See the “Limited Warranty Information
Table”
at the end of this warranty for the specific warranty period that applies to your Shingles. If you make a claim under this warranty which results in a repair of your roof, this warranty will be unaffected, as long as the repair is done by a PPC, and will continue to provide you with coverage on your entire Roofing System provided that Owens Corning® Products are used in the repairs. However, if you make a claim which results in your entire Roofing System being removed and replaced, this warranty will be void. If new Owens Corning® Shingles are installed, you will then receive an Owens Corning Standard Product Limited Warranty. However, if you once again install an entire Roofing System, you will be eligible to purchase a new Platinum Protection Roofing System Limited Warranty, as long as the new Roofing System is installed by a PPC per the “Eligibility Requirements
For This Warranty”
above.

  1. TRU PROTECTION® PERIOD
    From the installation of the shingles through the Tru PROtection® coverage period, Owens Corning will, compensate you to repair, replace or recover defective Products, including the cost of tear-off, and disposal subject to certain limitations. Tru PROtection® period excludes workmanship coverage. See the “Limited Warranty Information Table” at the end of the warranty for specific Tru PROtection® periods that apply to the Owens Corning®
    shingles you have purchased. Owens Corning reserves the right to arrange directly for the repair or replacement of your Products instead of compensating you directly. This compensation is limited as follows:
    A. If Owens Corning decides to replace the shingles, Owens Corning will compensate you only for the cost of replacement Owens Corning® shingles and the labor directly required to replace the defective shingles, both as reasonably determined by Owens Corning.
    B. If Owens Corning decides to repair or recover the shingles,
    Owens Corning will compensate you only for the cost of the labor directly required to repair or recover the defective shingles as reasonably determined by Owens Corning.
    C. The Tru PROtection® coverage period does not apply to wind and algae coverage. Please see “What About Wind Resistance” and “What About Algae Resistance” below for applicable coverage.

Under this Platinum Protection Roofing System Limited Warranty, all Owens Corning® Products (see “Eligibility Requirements For
This Warranty”
), with the exception of electrical components of the VentSure® Solar Attic Exhaust Fan and VentSure® off-ridge exhaust vents, share the Tru PROtection® period concurrent with the shingle installed. At the expiration of the Tru PROtection® period, all Products revert to the coverage specified by their standard warranties.

Under the Platinum Protection Roofing System Limited Warranty, if a cut Owens Corning® Supreme® Shingle is used instead of Owens Corning® Hip & Ridge shingles, the warranty and Tru PROtection® period for the Supreme® Shingle is 15 years. The Owens Corning® Supreme® Shingles do not assume the warranty term for shingles used on the balance of the roof, unless the entire roof is installed with Supreme® Shingles. Tru PROtection® period does not apply to Wind and Algae coverage. Please see “What About Wind Resistance” and “What About Algae Resistance” below for applicable coverage.

  1. PRORATED PERIOD
    Once the Tru PROtection® period of this warranty has expired, the prorated period will begin. During this prorated period, we will provide prorated compensation of the cost of the defective Owens Corning® products and labor, but no other costs will be covered, and we will take into account the number of full years of use you have enjoyed from the original installation date through the date of your claim, and reduce the amount of our Compensation to you accordingly. We will prorate the amount of our Compensation to you to adjust for the number of years you have enjoyed from the original installation date the date of your claim. For example: If you have a 25 year warranty and you make your claim anytime in the 15th year of the warranty, our Compensation to you will be reduced by 14/25ths of the labor and Owens Corning® Product cost at the time of purchase. For lifetime shingle coverage (for as long as Owner owns the home on which the Roofing System is installed), see the “Limited Lifetime  Shingle Proration^ Table”.
    Owens Corning reserves the right to arrange directly for the repair or replacement of your Products instead of compensating you directly.
  2. OTHER TYPES OF STRUCTURES
    The coverage for all Owens Corning® shingles offered by this warranty depends on the structure on which the shingles are installed the owner of the structure. Lifetime coverage for all Owens Corning® shingles applies only to single-family detached homes. In the instance

of shingles purchased or installed on property owned by others, for
example, corporations, governmental agencies, partnerships, trusts, religious organizations, schools, condominiums or cooperative housing arrangements, or installed on any other structures (for example, apartment buildings or any other type of building or premises not used by individual homeowners as their residence), the warranty period for Oakridge® shingles will be 40 years and all other lifetime shingles will be 50 years from the original installation date of the shingles, and the Tru PROtection® period will be 20 years. Please see the “Limited Lifetime Shingle Proration^ Table” for the prorated formula after Tru PROtection® coverage expires for lifetime shingles.

  1. EXCEPTIONS
    All of Owens Corning’s obligations of Compensation under this warranty (whether for repair, replacement, recover or refunding a prorated portion of the original purchase price of the defective Owens Corning® Products are subject to the limitations provided by this warranty. Owens Corning will not provide compensation for any underlayment, metalwork, flashings or other related work, and we will not compensate for the cost to remove or dispose of your shingles.
  1. WHAT ABOUT WIND RESISTANCE
    Your shingles contain asphalt sealant that requires direct warm sunlight for several days (“Thermal Sealing”) in order to seal properly. If your shingles are installed during a period of cool weather, they may not adequately seal until the weather warms, and if your shingles never receive direct sunlight or are not exposed to adequate surface
    temperatures, they may never achieve Thermal Sealing. Prior to your shingles achieving Thermal Sealing, your shingles are more vulnerable to blow-offs and wind damage. This is the fundamental nature of shingles and not a manufacturing defect, and we are not responsible for any blow-offs or wind damage that might occur prior to Thermal Sealing having occurred. After your shingles have achieved Thermal Sealing, however, they will be covered under this warranty if they experience blow-offs or wind damage in winds up to the levels and for the period from the original installation date (“Wind Warranty Period”) listed in the “Limited Warranty Information Table” at the end of this warranty. HOWEVER, THE COVERAGE AGAINST SHINGLE BLOW-OFFS OR WIND DAMAGE IS IN EFFECT FOR A PERIOD OF 15 YEARS FOR LIFETIME SHINGLES, AND 12 YEARS FOR SUPREME® SHINGLES, FROM THE ORIGINAL DATE OF INSTALLATION. Owens Corning will be liable only for the reasonable cost of replacing blown-off shingles and Owens Corning® Hip & Ridge shingles, if applicable (to include material and labor during the applicable Tru PROtection® warranty period) and the reasonable cost of manually sealing the unsealed shingles remaining on the roof.
  1. WHAT ABOUT ALGAE RESISTANCE
    If the shingles that you purchased were not specifically labeled as
    “Algae Resistant” (“AR”), then any discoloration caused by algae is not covered by this warranty as explained in “What Is Not Covered”
    below. However, if you did purchase AR shingles, they are covered for the period described in the “Limited Warranty Information Table” at the end of this warranty following the date of installation (“AR Warranty Period”) against brown-black staining caused by growth of blue-green algae (primarily the cyanobacteria Gloeocapsa magma). We do not cover the effects of other growth such as mold, lichen, and green algae. If brown-black staining occurs during the AR Warranty Period, you will be entitled to the following remedy:
    a. Remedy for Blue-Green Algae Growth—If your AR shingles are discolored by blue-green algae growth during the first year of the
    AR Warranty Period, we will compensate you for the cost, including labor (such cost not to exceed the initial cost of the AR shingles plus the initial cost of installation), as reasonably determined by Owens Corning, to repair, replace or recover the affected AR shingles.
    For purposes of this AR shingle warranty, the term “repair” as used above refers to cleaning or otherwise removing any blue-green algae
