The quality of the roof you’ve installed has a major impact on the durability and comfort of your house. For many homeowners, shingles are the preferred roofing option due to their accessibility, style, and durability. This post will provide an overview of CertainTeed weathered wood shingles, including their functionality, cost, durability, appearance, and ecological fit.
What are Weathered Wood shingles?
Weathered wood shingles are wooden shingles that have been exposed to weather elements like moisture and sunlight over a period of time. Therefore, they undergo a natural weathering process that gives them a unique and aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Read on to discover some notable qualities.
Weathered wood shingles are more affordable when compared to other types of roofing shingles and are a great option if you’re on a budget.
CertainTeed’s Landmark Pro collection offers durable and efficient roofing materials for homeowners. CertainTeed weathered wood shingles are efficient because they are less dense, making them more adaptable.
Moreover, wood shingles are easier to work with because they can be cut and shaped more easily than other types of wood. As with all shingles in the Landmark Pro line, they function well with different architectural designs. CertainTeed Landmark weathered wood can easily fit in whether your home style is Tudor or Cape Cod.
Weathered wood shingles are strong and less prone to breaking. They’re good at resisting harsh weather elements like heavy rain, which appeals to many homeowners. They also hold up well to persistent UV rays.
CertainTeed’s Landmark weathered wood experiences minimal shrinkage, meaning the roofing shingles can retain their dimensions long after installation. More importantly, weathered wood roofing shingles last for between 30 to 60 years with proper maintenance and attention, presenting a safe return for your investment.
Wood shingle roofs are generally visually appealing, and weathering naturally gives the shingles a grayish-brown hue. The weathered look gives the shingles a rustic appearance and a rough texture.
The CertainTeed weathered wood shingles come in different shapes and sizes, and their grayish-brown appearance compliments walls and furnishings well. Also, the weathered wood’s color and texture make it friendlier to stains and paints.
5. Environmental fit
Another key characteristic that makes CertainTeed weathered wood shingles popular is their eco-friendly nature. Unlike other roofing materials, like Asphalt shingles, and metal sheets, wood shingles are a safe bet for the environment due to their sustainability. Homeowners interested in an eco-friendly homestead may find the weathered wood shingles a viable option.
CertainTeed’s weathered wood shingles are durable and last long under proper maintenance. They also have a rustic grayish-brown look that gives a splendid house view that appeals to homeowners. Further, they are affordable, eco-friendly, and functional with different architectural designs.
