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

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.  We’re excited to announce that we will now be carrying their Glenwood® Lifetime Designer Shingles!  Here’s why we find them so impressive!

Algae Resistant: 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.

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 there best.  Enter GAF with their new Glenwood® Lifetime Designer shingles that simulates 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: Because cedar shakes are made out 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.

Thickness: Glenwood® Shingles are substantially thicker than standard asphalt shingles.  In fact, they have 3 layers.  This provides an aesthetically pleasing look that resembles the look of cedar shakes.drone roof

Affordability: 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 the fraction of the cost.

GAF Roofing Reviews:

"Great to deal with. Came and removed my gutters ahead of time, replaced roof and came back to reinstall gutters."

"Lindus did an excellent job of communicating with us before and during the job. The workers were punctual and professional, worked very hard to finish our job on time. Cleanup was thorough. We're very happy with our new roof, and excited about LeafGuard® gutters because our property has tons of trees. Would use Lindus again and recommend to others."

"Had my roof (shingles, soffit, fascia, and gutters) replaced by Lindus two years ago and am very pleased with the quality of their work. When hail came through a year later I called and they came out and did an inspection to make sure everything was OK.
