Reviving a Home with Glenwood Shingles

Reviving a Home with Glenwood Shingles

To upgrade a custom home with aging wood shakes, the owners found an attractive and high-performing roof system from GAF to complement its architectural style.

The challenge of aging shakes

In Far Hills, New Jersey, the 20-year-old, steep-pitch roof of a custom home needed replacement. The challenge was to reflect the original style and appearance of the cedar shake roof with a high-performing shingle that meets modern performance and safety standards.

Premium design and performance

To showcase the home’s classic design with a quality roof that would last, the owners selected a complete roofing system made by GAF. The timeless beauty of Glenwood® Shingles echoes the visual appeal of cedar shakes, while high-performing system Deck-Armor™ Premium Breathable Roof Deck Protection ensures decades of worry-free enjoyment. Contractor Lester Waxman noted the roof has gotten lots of positive attention in the neighborhood because of its wood-shake look.

“As a contractor, I love working with the Glenwood Shingle. … It is truly a unique-looking shingle.”
