The TAW current roofing standard is a traditional 3-Tab shingle, and each building/row of town homes in the community must maintain the color in use today.
Approved shingles are Certainteed XT25 in Weathered Wood and Nickel Gray Color. These are 25 year shingles. Homeowners may use different brands of shingle, as long as the color matches their existing shingle color. Because there are a limited set of manufacturers of shingles, maintaining consistency is simplified.
Because TAW was built in 1997, and we are approaching 25 years old, each homeowner needs to do diligence in having their roofs inspected and replaced as required to avoid unwanted leaks and damage to their homes.
Reference our Local Contractors link for Roofing Contractors that have done work for residents in TAW.
We are working to update our standard to allow architectural shingles as these shingles are similarly priced and have a lifetime warranty. We will send an update to homeowners when this change is approved by the Reston DRB.
