Owens Corning Essentials Ultra Premium – A good albeit overstated product

We think Owens Corning went a little overboard calling this "Ultra Premium". It is a decent siding but nothing real special. Decent thickness and a heavy duty locking system but other than that nothing to write home about only available in Double 4" Clapboard or Double 5" Dutchlap. No Dark colors or insulation.


  • Reasonably thick
  • Good locking system for wind resistance


  • Overstated Quality
  • Limited Profiles
  • Dull Colors
