Many homeowners consider wood shakes the ideal material for adding a rustic, handmade look to their homes. However, typical wood shake products are inherently vulnerable to the effects of moisture and changing weather. What if you want the wood shake look without all the associated hassles?
Fortunately, there’s GAF Glenwood® Shingles. In the following video, let us share the features that set Glenwood Shingles apart from other roofing materials and why roofing contractors recommend it.
It boosts your home’s curb appeal – Glenwood Shingles can do what many asphalt shingle products only claim to do: instantly boost your home’s curb appeal. The best thing about it is that it doesn’t lose its appeal even up close. With six complementary colors to choose from—Adobe Clay, Autumn Harvest, Chelsea Gray, Dusky Gray, Golden Prairie, and Weathered Wood—you can choose the right kind of shade that complements your trim and siding.
It’s the thickest wood shake shingles ever made – Traditional wood shakes look great when installed as thick, hand-cut pieces of wood. That authentic, multi-dimensional look is carried over to Glenwood Shingles. Despite the thickness, it’s easy to cut; in our experience as a residential roofer, we can confirm that installation takes the same amount of time as typical asphalt shingles.
It protects your home – Glenwood Shingles aren’t all about the looks. Thanks to the GAF Advanced Protection® system, it’s also one of the most durable shingles ever made. It passed stress tests designed to simulate real-world weather conditions, like impact from large hailstones, extreme heat, and sub-zero winter cold. Glenwood Shingles were also subjected to the toughest wind tests designed to simulate hurricane force winds: ASTM D3161, Class F (110 mph) and ASTM D7158, Class H (150 mph), or the equivalent of categories 3 and 4 hurricanes, respectively.
It’s protected by the best warranties – The best roofing shingles deserve the best warranty coverage. Glenwood Shingles are eligible for GAF’s Limited Lifetime Warranties, and as a GAF Master Elite™ Contractor, we’re one of the select few roofing companies who can offer GAF’s best warranty coverage: the Golden Pledge® Limited Warranty. It features up to 50 years material coverage and 25 years workmanship coverage. It also includes a 40-point quality inspection conducted by a GAF inspector, among other benefits.
