Wood shakes are unparalleled when it comes to natural beauty, which is why many homeowners are willing to put up with the onerous maintenance they require. But now, thanks to leading roofing manufacturer GAF, you can have the beauty of wood shakes without the hassle.
As a GAF Master Elite® roofing contractor, The Thomas Roofing Company is proud to give you a quick look at GAF Glenwood® Shingles.
The Thickest GAF Shingles
Hand-cut wood shakes are cut about three times as thick as traditional three-tab shingles. In addition to creating that dimensional look that few other roofing materials can emulate, GAF’s Glenwood Shingles also make the roof resistant to heat and impact. The shingles feature a triple-layer construction, which makes them the thickest roofing product GAF has ever made.
Easier to Maintain
With today’s fast-paced lifestyle, fewer homeowners have the time or resources to tend to something as high-maintenance as wood shakes. This is where GAF Glenwood Shingles excel. They look exactly like wood shakes, even up close, and yet are as low-maintenance as typical asphalt shingles.
GAF Advanced Protection® Technology
Glenwood Shingles are extremely durable, thanks to GAF’s Advanced Protection Technology. Shingles designed using this technology are subjected to extensive testing that simulates real-world weather extremes, including hurricane-force winds, extreme temperatures and direct object impacts that simulate hailstones and airborne debris. These tests include ASTM D3161, Class F, and ASTM D7158, Class H. These tests correspond to resistance to 110 mph (Category 3 hurricane) and 150 mph (Category 4 hurricane), respectively. Glenwood Shingles have been tested to withstand these conditions.
As part of the GAF Lifetime Roofing System, Glenwood Shingles are protected by the best roofing warranties in the business. When installed by a GAF Master Elite roofing company like us, your new roofing system will be eligible for the GAF Golden Pledge® Ltd.
