Check out exterior home products that showcase extreme durability and pleasing aesthetics.

With the unpredictability of natural disasters today, siding, roofing, decking, and other exterior product manufacturers remain focused on developing durable products that will protect homes from water, wind, and potentially fire intrusion. But when the conditions flip and the sun decides to shine, homeowners are increasingly utilizing exterior living spaces—complete with outdoor kitchens, fireplaces, and electronics—and craving aesthetically pleasing products that can mirror the interior design styles present inside their homes.


GAF’s newest series of Timberline shingles, Timberline HDZ, incorporates the manufacturer’s LayerLock technology to mechanically fuse the shingles’ common bonds. The shingles create a dual-phase, shingle-to-shingle seal when used with GAF’s DuraGrip sealant, as well as an asphalt-to-asphalt monolithic bond. In addition, the new StrikeZone nailing area is up to 600% larger than the nailing area of Timberline HD shingles, providing better nailing accuracy and faster nail fastening during installation, according to the manufacturer. gaf.com
