With Glenwood™ Lifetime Designer Shingles, wood shakes have finally met their match! Glenwood is GAF’s newest ultra-premium designer shingle, and has been uniquely designed to replicate the look of natural wood shakes without the hassles. This asphalt shingle option is an excellent choice for Florida’s humid and storm-prone climate, where wood roofs do not hold up well.
Like all GAF Designer shingles, Glenwood shingles include Advanced Protection™ technology for decades of performance and protection, plus StainGuard® protection to stop discoloration of shingles from blue-green algae. Here are more advantages of this new shingle offering for Tampa roofing.
- Authentic wood shake design. The artisan-crafted shingle tabs of Glenwood shingles create an elegant, authentic wood shake look that gives your home a dimensional look unmatched by typical shingles.
- Impressive thicknesss. Glenwood shingles feature ultra-thick, triple-layer construction with a remarkable dimensionality that no other triple-layer asphalt shingle can match. When compared to natural untreated wood shakes, they are far less vulnerable to warping and damage.
- More affordable. Wood is a finite resource, and quality wood shakes that are properly treated have become increasingly expensive. Glenwood shingles are more affordable compared to traditional wood shakes.
- Lower maintenance costs. Because they are less susceptible to rotting, warping and moisture absorption when compared with untreated wood shakes, Glenwood shingles require no extra care beyond routine maintenance.
- UL Class A fire rating. In Florida, where lightning is plentiful, a wood roof is a serious fire hazard that results in increased homeowner’s insurance costs. Glenwood shingles feature a UL Class A fire rating, the highest rating available.
Glenwood Shingles are available in six designer colors with a natural wood-shake look: Adobe Clay, Autumn Harvest, Chelsea Gray, Dusky Gray, Golden Prairie and Weathered Wood.
