As a contractor in business for over 40 years, one of the greatest joys we experience is when our clients consider us a trusted ally and continue to entrust their home improvements to our team of expert craftsmen. It had been nearly a decade since we’d first had the opportunity to work on Thomas’ 1970’s era split-level home in Ramsey county. He continued to be appreciative of our company’s dedication to quality and knew that our craftsmen will complete a flawless installation. This time he called upon our team of experts because his cedar shake roof had begun to noticeably deteriorate. In addition, he wished to upgrade his home’s preexisting gutters. It was a priority to find a clog-free solution, as his beautiful property was adorned with many stately trees. Ultimately, Thomas invested in GAF Glenwood® shingles and LeafGuard® Brand Gutters. Here is why the two proved to be such a winning combination.
GAF Glenwood® Shingles: While the cedar shake shingles were noticeably pulling up in numerous areas, they had once been a major contributor to the curb appeal of Thomas’ home. There was an easy argument for finding a shingle that imitated the aesthetics, without the expensive and repetitive maintenance of cedar shakes. GAF Glenwood® shingles proved to be a perfect fit. These ultra-dimensional shingles have earned the reputation of being the most authentic wood-shake shingle within the marketplace. In all, over 1,100 bundles of shingles were used on Thomas’ 126 square roof. This number becomes even more impressive when it is understood that the average US roof is comprised of 17 squares. The color used on Thomas’ roof was Golden Prairie; it was the ideal complement to the home’s buttery yellow siding. GAF Glenwood® shingles carry the best possible fire rating and are accompanied with a 50-year, non-prorated warranty that covers both labor and materials. In addition, Glenwood® shingles come with StainGuard® Plus™ protection that helps ensure the roof’s beauty against unsightly algae growth commonly found on cedar shake roofs.

LeafGuard® Brand Gutters: One of the most alluring aspects of Thomas’ property is the stately trees that adorn it. It was of the utmost importance that the gutters we installed on his home be maintenance-free. LeafGuard® Brand Gutters proved to be the optimum choice. They offer the ultimate peace of mind because they are seamless and guaranteed never to clog. Even more impressive is that the one-piece system has earned the prestigious Good Housekeeping Seal of approval. Another appealing aspect of the LeafGuard® Brand Gutter system is that it is coated with a proprietary ScratchGuard® paint finish which has a warranty that protects against chipping, cracking, or peeling, ensuring that the aluminum gutters will look their finest for years to come.
