Building a home is a big commitment, and homebuyers want to know that their builder cares about every detail as much as they do. That’s why Ken Thieneman Builder is providing his buyers with added peace of mind when it comes to one especially important aspect of the home – the roof.
Homes from the Louisville-based home builder now come standard with an Owens Corning® System Protection Roofing Limited Warranty, which offers a 50-year non-prorated period where warranty coverage includes labor cost to repair/replace defective materials for shingles and other Owens Corning system components. As a comparison, standard warranties typically offer a 10-year non-prorated period.
“How many companies today will stand behind their products for 50 years?” asks company president Ken Thieneman. “But your home, of all things, should be built to last. We believe in doing things right and we are standing behind our work.”
A Solid Roof is Crucial to a Lasting Home
The roof is a critical part of a home’s appearance and performance, notes Thieneman. “Not only does it comprise a big part of the visual impact of the home, it protects everything – and everyone – inside the home. That’s no place to cut corners.”
An Air Force veteran who grew up in his father’s construction business, Thieneman credits his company’s reputation to a legacy of loyalty and high standards of excellence. He applies those same high standards when selecting the products and companies he works with.
“We’re very selective about what we use on the roof,” insists Thieneman. “That’s what enables us to include this exceptional warranty on our homes.”
Homebuyers Love Exceptional Quality with An Exceptional Guarantee
Thieneman uses Owners Corning Oakridge® shingles exclusively. Known as “America’s #1 Trusted Brand” of Roofing, Owens Corning has received the 2018 and 2019 Women’s Choice Award® for the most recommended roofing products. Because Ken Thieneman Builder installs a prescribed number of other roofing system components along with the shingles, the company is able to offer its customers extra assurance of an Owens Corning system warranty.
A long-lasting roof is about more than just shingles, Thieneman explains. “It’s a system of components working together for optimum performance. That’s why we use Owens Corning roofing products – they design these products to work together, and Owens Corning Preferred Contractors, who are specifically trained to provide the quality installation we expect.”
The System Protection Warranty means that every new homeowner who purchases a Ken Thieneman home will enjoy extra peace of mind with the added protection of 50 years of non-prorated warranty coverage for product defects. The builder offers Owens Corning shingles in several popular colors – all ready to be installed as part of their highly customized building process.
