Glenwood® Lifetime Designer Shingles…The Most Authentic Wood Shake-Looking Shingles You Can Buy

We’re excited to announce that we will now be carrying GAF Glenwood® Lifetime Designer Shingles!  Here at Lindus Construction, we strive to be the best in our industry and part of achieving that is working with other well-established companies that make top-quality products and stand behind them.  We appreciate our partnership with GAF, who makes North America’s #1-selling brand of roofing systems.   While we’ve been awarded many industry recognitions since our institution in 1979, we’re particularly proud of being previously named the number one GAF asphalt roofing contractor in the country.  One of our favorite features about GAF is their ability to continuously provide innovative (and trendy!) roofing solutions.  Here’s why we find them so impressive!

5 Benefits Of Designer Shingles By GAF

Algae Resistant Shingle Protection:

A common complaint by homeowners with cedar shakes is the presence of algae and moss on the roof is commonplace.  That’s because when it rains, moss traps moisture which prevents it from ever properly drying out.  The longer this process continues, the more apt the roof is to leaking.  A perk of selecting Glenwood shingles is that they come with StainGuard® Protection which works to ensure that your roof isn’t overtaken with nasty blue-green algae.

GAF Glenwood® Shingles Require Lower Maintenance:

Cedar shake roofs are known for their beauty because of their unique, natural look.  What stops many homeowners from installing one are their low lifespan (less than 10 years in same scenarios) and the high maintenance care needed to keep them looking their best.  Enter GAF with their new Glenwood® Lifetime Designer shingles that simulate the look of cedar shakes while offering a 50-year, non-prorated warranty on both labor & materials.  This gives the homeowners the best of both worlds.

Fire Safe Shingles:

Because cedar shakes are made of essentially the same material used in a campfire, your insurance company may charge a premium for this type of roofing since it is not fire retardant.  Adversely, Glenwood® Shingles carry a Class A fire rating from Underwriters Laboratories.  Class A signifies the greatest resistance, something insurance companies take into consideration when calculating rates.

Designer Shingles Are Thicker:

Glenwood® Shingles are substantially thicker than standard asphalt shingles.  In fact, they have 3 layers and have the highest impact resistance rating possible for shingles.  This provides durability and an aesthetically pleasing look that resembles the look of cedar shakes.drone roof

More Affordable Shingles For Long-Term Homeowners:

Another reason homeowners shy away from cedar shake roofing is because of the costs associated with installing and maintaining them.  Because Glenwood® Shingles offer a 50-year, non-prorated warranty on both labor & materials, it’s likely the last roof you’ll ever have installed on your home, all with the same look as cedar shakes, at a fraction of the cost.

All of the customer service people, Brittany and Donna, to Jake in sales, Wayne and Brock with carpentry, Hunter on gutters, Tucker as project manager and the entire crew that did the roofing. Everybody was very professional, friendly, and great communication from beginning to end. I have recommended Lindus to others! Thank you so much!"

"In September 2019 had our Plymouth home re roofed with GAF Glenwoods. Major project with new deck boards, removal of insulation and spray foam. Plus new LeafGuard® Gutters.  Not cheap but done quickly and more importantly correctly.  Carl, supervisor was great. Now we have great warranty (lifetime) insurance discount, and an impressive looking roof."
