Dubuque, Iowa-based Klauer Manufacturing Company announced on Wednesday the release of its latest creation in the building construction field — the Cottage Wood shingle — crafted using heavy-gauge steel and durable, state-of-the-art finishes and coatings. 

In a Dec. 6 news release, Klauer said the Cottage Wood shingle, manufactured with an A653 galvanized Kynar 500 finish, is guaranteed to “…retain its beauty and outperform competing materials,” adding that the product stands out in offering protection, savings and beauty.

“We work diligently with our suppliers to bring the best materials and new technology to all of our products, especially our shingles,” said Michael Igo, vice president of Klauer Manufacturing. “This innovative product is designed to enhance the aesthetic appeal of customers’ properties while providing excellent protection against the elements.”

Klauer’s Cottage Wood shingles are made in America and available in a palette of colors using the Dura Coat Product coating system. There are currently 10 Cottage Wood shingle colors in the collection, including: 

  • Snow White Sandalwood
  • Moccasin
  • Northern Woods
  • Terra Bronze
  • Winter Sage
  • Liberty Gray
  • Deep Ocean Blue
  • Brick Red, and 
  • Mocha. 

Each color carries a fade and chalk resistance warranty to ensure they remain “vibrant” for decades.

The company said the composite material used in its construction is made from recycled materials, reducing the overall environmental impact of the product and underscoring the eco-friendly manufacturing practices Klauer values.
