4 Features and Benefits of Wood-Shake Asphalt Shingles

4 Features and Benefits of Wood-Shake Asphalt Shingles

Wood shakes are great if you’re after a rustic and handcrafted look for your home. While real wood is still a viable roofing option, it requires more care and attention than typical roofs, which some homeowners don’t have the time or resources for.

To that end, consider wood-shake asphalt shingles, like GAF’s own Timberline® and Glenwood® shingles. As a GAF Master Elite™ roofing contractor, let Krech Exteriors share their features and benefits.

  1. Dimensional stability – One of the benefits of wood shakes and shingles is it keeps its shape and size with the right pre-installation treatment. Timberline and Glenwood shingles, like all GAF asphalt shingle products, keep their shape during their expected lifespans and stay beautiful for a long time.

  2. Resistance to weather shifts – Resistance to the elements essential for Minnesota roofing. GAF Timberline shingles, particularly the ArmorShield™ II series, has been designed and tested with GAF’s own Advanced Protection® Technology. A series of industry tests called AC438 is used to test their products’ long-term performance in three critical areas: long-term durability, wind-driven rain performance, and long-term extreme temperature performance. GAF Timberline shingles easily aced these tests; in fact, GAF is the first company whose shingles have passed these torturous tests.

  3. Easy installation – You might think that with the added features—and thickness, and in the case of Glenwood shingles—these shingles would take much longer to install. But, having installed these shingles multiple times, we can confirm that GAF’s wood-shake look shingles are just as easy to install as their other asphalt shingle products.

  4. The best roofing warranties – All GAF Lifetime Roofing Systems installed by Master Elite contractors are eligible for GAF’s full range of limited warranty coverage options, including their Golden Pledge® Limited Warranty, which features up to 50 years coverage on the roofing materials and 25 years on workmanship, among other benefits.
