At Beantown Home Improvements, We Only Install the #1 Asphalt

Shingle Brand in America - Owens Corning - Yeah We're that Confident!!

2018 Roofing Homeowner Brand Awareness Study by Owens Corning Roofing & Asphalt LLC


When you first call us to make an appointment, our staff will pair you with either the owner, Jim DelPrete or our Operations Manager.  We don’t have salesman or high-pressure sales tactics, you will be meeting with whomever will be running your job! 


Upon arriving on time, we’ll fully inspect your roof, the flashing, check for leaks and proper ventilation, inspect the structural integrity of the roof, check the attic for mold and moisture and measure it up. 


Finally we’ll leave you with samples of all the roofing components we install including shingles, a detailed quote, copies of references and our state licenses.


At this time you will have everything you need to make a confident educated decision on what is best for you. It's no wonder why we are still the top rated no-pressure roofing contractor in all of Southeastern Massachusetts!

We use the Owens Corning TruDefinition Shingle because:

  1. It is the heaviest shingle on the market at 260 pounds/square  compared to GAF at 245 and Certainteed at 240

  2. Owens Corning is the ONLY manufacturer with the Patented SureNail Technology Strip. The bond strength of the adhesive from one shingle to the one below it was tested at 2X times that of any other shingle on the market today!

  3. Made in America!  Owens Corning proudly manufactures the shingles we use in Kearny, NJ.

TruDefinition® Duration® Shingles

Why they truly are better than the rest

When we Install the Total Protection Roofing System, we O use Top Tier OC Products Without Exception or Substitution!

System Components we install:

  • Premium Weatherlock Flex Ice & Water Shield

    • In regards to material cost, after Shingles, this is the biggest expense

    • In an effort to save significant money, many installers will use a lower grade and less expensive granulated ice & water shield.  Sadly most of these rip quite easily

    • Many will also not use enough of it

    • Here's a true test of any roofing consultants knowledge. Ask them how much ice & water shield you need on your roof.  If they just tell you 6' and can't explain how they got to that number, then they don't truly know what the building code states, because it very well may be a lot more!  Want to know, just call us for your Free estimate!

  • Deck Defense - High Performance Synthetic Underlayment

    • Many will use low grade synthetics or go as far as using felt paper or other fabrics

  • Superior 8” Drip-Edge

    • This is the widest drip edge made on the market today and available in many colors

  • Pipe Vent Boots - sized to specifically fit each and every vent pipe

  • Broan Vents - to properly vent both kitchen and bathroom fans out the roof

    • Many will reuse these vents or even spray paint the existing ones, we've seen it!

  • Starter Strip Plus Starter Shingle

  • VentSure® RidgeCat® Rolled Ridge Vent

    • Many will use low cost/low air flow after market ridge vents

  • Best-in-Class TruDefinition® Duration® Shingles

  • ProEdge® Hip & Ridge Shingles

  • Soffit or Inflow Vents

While all shingles these days have a small amount of Copper or Zinc in them to keep Algae growth down, if you live in an area shaded by trees this still may not be enough.


Beantown Home Improvements can take this one step further and help protect your new roof with Shingle Shield.  Shingle Shield has developed a 100% Zinc roof protection product which will inhibit growth of mildew, lichens, moss, fungus and algae on roof surfaces. Shingle Shield mounts just under the ridge caps on the top of your roof and rain flows over the Shingle Shield Zinc Strips and naturally releases harmless fungistatic molecules of zinc oxide which travel evenly down the roof slope . These molecules are retained by the roof surface and inhibit the growth of all vegetation.


They are easy to install during a new roof installation.  Inquire with us today about Shingle Shield when Beantown Home Improvements installs your new roof.
