Well I'll say it before anyone else..........details......what type of Owens Corning? Who installed them? Pro or Diyer? What type of ventilation system does your roof have? Etc, etc, etc. Pictures would help us help you!

Ventalation is the key, if it's not right the shingles over heat.

Surface temperatures on shingles are largely unaffected by ventilation.

Ventilation could have contributed to excessive moisture and that can create cupping and failure issues.
