Owens Corning® has announced aged copper as the 2021 Shingle Color of the Year and the fifth shingle in the Owens Corning TruDefinition® Duration® Designer Colors Collection to receive this designation. In selecting aged copper as the 2021 Shingle Color of the Year, the Owens Corning team drew on the insights of exterior designers and architects as well as reflected on local and global issues that affect homeowners. Aged copper blends granules infused with hues of orange, sage, and brown to achieve a warm, welcoming effect. It delivers a balanced energy between the neutrality of minimalist shades and the intensity of stronger hues.
Like all colors in the Shingle Color of the Year series, aged copper coordinates with a broad palette of exterior colors and surfaces including brick, stone, and natural wood. The shingle’s versatility is highlighted with new inspiration boards added to the existing style boards on the Owens Corning website. Additional design and inspire tools, including the proprietary Design EyeQ® visualization software, and exterior design advice provided by designer Chad Esslinger, help give homeowners confidence to choose the right shingle for their home and personality.
Beyond aesthetics, shingle performance is critical when it comes to the home’s roof. As weather intensifies across the United States, aged copper, on the Duration Series platform, delivers the performance technology that stands up to the elements. The Owens Corning TruDefinition Duration Series line is equipped with patented SureNail® Technology and Triple Layer Protection® in the nailing zone.
