Advantages of Glenwood® Lifetime Designer Shingles

By Stacy Mellete

Wood shingles are one of the most widely used roofing materials in America. However, these roofing shingles can be high-maintenance, get infested by pests and are more prone to rotting and splitting.

Now, there’s a roofing material available that looks very similar to wood shakes but has more remarkable features. In this post, your local roofing contractor discusses the features of Glenwood® Lifetime Designer Shingles and how they can improve your home’s overall appeal.

More Than Just Aesthetics

Glenwood Lifetime Designer Shingles appear like hand-cut wood shakes but they’re actually made of three thick layers of asphalt. These layers give the shingles more dimension, making them look more like wood.

With these Glenwood Shingles, you can make your home look luxurious for less. They are available in various colors that match different shades of natural wood. You won’t have to worry about blue algae destroying the look of your beautiful shingles because they come with StainGuard® Protection.

As they are designed with Advanced® Shingle Technology and GAF Dura Grip™, they can endure hurricane-force-winds, extreme storms and even fire.

You can be assured that your shingles will stay safely in place and won’t blow off. In addition, Glenwood Shingles have a UL Class A fire rating. Proper installation by a reliable roofing company in Tampa FL like Affordable Roofing Systems, is essential for the longevity of your new roof.

Aside from their beauty and durability, they are protected with Lifetime ltd. transferable warranty with Smart Choice® Protection for the first 10 years.
