Although wood is a classic material when it comes to sheer aesthetics, it’s also one of the weaker roofing options. While it has respectable weather resistance, it fares poorly against rain and moisture and requires more maintenance and repair compared to its contemporaries.
YES Contractor Services, your local roofing contractor, shares how you can enjoy the look of a wood shake roof using Glenwood® Asphalt Shingles.
Authentic Wood Shake Look
This architectural asphalt shingle system replicates the distinct look of wood and cedar shake shingles. Unlike natural wood, you have more color options and plenty of wood stains to choose from with Glenwood®, thanks to its extended color palette.
What makes this asphalt roof stand out is its triple-layer design, which gives the roof a more dimensional look similar to classic hand-cut wood shakes. Our roofing construction company recommends this shingle system if you want a wood-look roof without using wood.
A High-Performance System
Not only is Glenwood® pretty to look at, it’s a high-performance system, too. It’s designed with GAF’s Advanced Protection® Shingle Technology which gives it excellent physical and weather resistance. The secret is its fiberglass core, which gives it natural strength and stability while the asphalt that covers it provides the shingles with waterproofing. Dura Grip™ Adhesive seals the shingles in place and gives them higher wind resistance than other asphalt roofs.
This asphalt shingle system boasts StainGuard® Protection that ensures its wood-look aesthetics lasts a long time. Unlike real wood shingles, Glenwood® doesn’t need retreatment every couple of years.
