You want your home to be protected, even in times of disaster. When it comes to choosing shingles for your roof, it makes sense to pick wallaba shingles over cedar or other common options. Made from trees that are indigenous to tropical climates, wallaba shingles have a natural resistance, durability and beauty that other materials lack.
Wallaba trees are often found in areas known for high winds and storms. It makes sense that they would be naturally more resistant to problems those areas face. The dense wood of the wallaba tree makes it more impervious to water damage, even without special treatment. It deters termites and other pests as well. Cedar must be treated to even come close to meeting the same standard of defense.
It is unusual for a roof to last for decades, especially in areas that are prone to heavy rain and intense winds. Wallaba shingles, however, can last up to 30 years. They are heavier than cedar shingles and thus are less likely to become detached from the roof by strong gales. They stay in place and resist cracking, giving your home superior protection from all the elements.
Most shingles start out beautiful but gray with age. Cedar has a rich natural color but tends toward discoloration as it is bombarded with water and debris. Shingles made from wallaba retain their beautiful brown or red appearance and may even develop a silvery sheen over the life of your roof. Where other materials get dull, wallaba shines even brighter.
Protecting your home from wind and water damage is your roof’s primary job. Wallaba shingles improve its ability to accomplish this task better than shingles made from cedar or other materials. Wallaba’s naturally resistant properties and fantastic durability leave you with a roof that stays strong and beautiful for a long time.
