How they got started
Owens Corning was founded in 1938 and they were the first company to manufacture commercial fiberglass. They have worked with some of the largest companies in the world and even the United States military. Owens corning helped insulate US Navy ships starting in 1939. Owens Corning helped to develop the first fiberglass body for the automotive industry in order to make cars lighter. In 1953, through a strategic partnership with General Motors, Owens Corning helped develop the first Corvette. In the early 1960’s, Owens Corning was approached by NASA to help develop the A7L space suit. The suit they designed was worn by some of the most famous astronauts in history including Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstong.
So where do we come in?
In 1978, Owens Corning began manufacturing and distributing the fiberglass shingle. Before 1978, shingles were typically made out of metal or some sort of organic shingle. Organic shingles had a mat made of cellulose (wood, paper, etc..) that was coated in asphalt and then covered with granules. The problem with these shingles is that they would quickly break down over time due to the materials. Fiberglass is a much more durable material giving a minimum of 20 years up to 50 years.
