Everything is about curb appeal. Building industry professionals should strive to create a home that is distinctive in curb appeal, whether they are working on new construction or remodeling projects.
The roof is a key element in determining the home’s aesthetic appeal. The roof’s selection and color can make a lasting impression on curb appeal.
There are more factors to consider when choosing a roof. When choosing a roof, it is important to consider the following factors: low-maintenance, strong warranties, and lower homeowner insurance rates. These are just a few of the many reasons that more builders and remodelers
Reed, founder, and owner of Reggie Reed says that he wanted an upgraded roofing product for several reasons. This Nantucket shingle-style home has a hip roof which is very visible from the street. The roof was a key component of the home’s curb appeal. I wanted it to “connect” with the exterior elements.
“With so many creams, whites, and other colors on the exterior of the home, it was important that the house be anchored with natural, contrasting color. This was achieved by the excellent composite roofing color, Black Oak.
Reggie Reed Roofing says that the Select Shake product adds dimension and character to the custom 6,500-square foot home.
Reggie Reed Roofing says that the roof is more attractive than any other aspect of the house. The composite shake looks very real and expensive. This isn’t a product that will break the bank. It is a high-quality roofing shingle with exceptional quality for a reasonable price.
“It is too common for builders to rely on asphalt roofing. This house’s Reed roof shows how important it is to have strong curb appeal. Builders need to understand that composite roofing can add long-term value to their homes. We were able to offer a limited lifetime warranty on this Reed roof to the homeowner.
Authentic Shake Appearance
Select Shake is the fourth profile of shake available from Reggie Reed Roofing. It has the authentic look of real cedar shake. The multi-width shake tiles are made from natural wood profiles and resemble traditional cedar shakes.
Each Reed Select Shake tile comes in two sizes: 8-inch and 10-inch. They are 22 inches long and 5/8 inch thick. The pieces are 10-inches wide and have a simulated keyway, giving the illusion of shakes with four- or six-inch widths. Reed Select Shake’s unique tile design allows for quick installation.
Realistic Color Mixes
Reed Select Shake tiles are available in eight color combinations, including Tahoe, Chesapeake Mountain, Tahoe, Weathered Gray, and Autumn. The Nature Crafted Collection also offers three additional color combinations, including Aged Cedar and Black Oak as well as Mossy Cedar.
Reggie Reed Roofing’s use of the Black Oak color on the 2020 Home for the Holidays Showhouse reminds us of cedar shingles that are naturally moistened with mold and moisture for years. This color portrays the dark, mature-looking cedar that is found in a home.
The Aged Cedar color is a dark reddish-brown cedar tone. This color is usually found in transitions between a new cedar shake roof and a weathered, deeper tone.
Mossy Cedar has a damp, greenish appearance. This is a characteristic of real cedar, but it is not possible to achieve in real cedar. However, this color is what people want for their natural-looking shake roofings.
Reggie Reed Roofing, says that “The Nature Crafted Collection” is for true cedar shake shingles lovers. They get the colors they want from the first day that the roofing tiles are installed. There is no waiting for the aging process to take place.
The hues look amazing and can be ‘locked in for life on your roof. Composite roofing is also very easy to maintain and doesn’t have the decay concerns that real cedar shingles would.
