Trying to find a roof that strikes a balance between durability and visual appeal is tricky. Conventional roofing materials usually excel in one of the two, but are lackluster when it comes to the other. Luckily, thanks to advances in technology, leading manufacturers have produced a variety of roofing systems that have the right mix of qualities.
Wooden roofs, in particular, have been an enduring long-time favorite among homeowners because of their classic appeal. If you’re looking for a durable roof, however, your roofing contractor may not suggest getting a wooden roof because of its susceptibility to wear and tear, and the considerable maintenance it requires.
If, on the other hand, you’re looking for durability, you can’t go wrong with choosing a metal roof. Metal roofs, a common sight in industrial compounds and backyard sheds, aren’t the most aesthetically pleasing material, however.
TAMKO®, a trusted name among homeowners since 1944, has developed a product line that combines the best aspects of wood and metal: the AstonWood® Shingle brand. .
A Classic Wooden Aesthetic With Galva-Strength Durability
AstonWood Shingles give your home that same classic look that cedar shingles have without compromising on durability. The shingles’ galvanized steel composition is further reinforced by special coatings that can resist dirt and withstand the wear and tear, two of the most common problems faced by homeowners.
The tendency with most roofing materials is the more durable the material, the heavier it is. But this doesn’t apply to lightweight AstonWood shingles, which are every bit as durable as conventional roofing materials.
For those who want a wide range of design options to customize their exterior, AstonWood Shingles come in a variety of colors, such as River Rock Brown, Sequoia Red and Sierra Slate Grey to name a few.
