GAF Roofing System Overview
GAF roofing is the top manufacturer of both commercial and residential roofing materials in the United States. Since they were founded in 1886, they have built their business from nothing to almost $3 billion in sales as a result of their commitment to bringing safe, top-quality roofing products to architects, roofing companies and consumers at fair prices.
The GAF Roofing System
Because of this commitment to quality, simplicity and expertise, you can be assured that any GAF certified roofers will not only bring their own time-proven expertise to the table, but also the safest, long-lasting and high quality materials. In order to bring you this level of quality, GAF has developed a roofing system that their certified roofers use to not only protect the roof of your home or business, but also to help improve the overall energy efficiency of your property. This roofing system not only includes high quality asphalt shingles, but also products that ensure your roof is protected and properly ventilated.
One of the most recognizable products in the GAF lineup are their lifetime shingles. Shingles are the most visible part of your roof, providing front-line protection from rain, heat, snow and other elements. Because of this, GAF has developed a variety of styles, all designed to provide you with the maximum protection.
Three-Tab (3-Tab) Shingles
Three-Tab Shingles are the most basic of shingles. These shingles are made in your standard, square design and are the most affordable and basic type of shingle offered by GAF. If you are looking for a new roof on a budget, this is the perfect choice. Three-Tab shingles come with a 25 or 30 year limited warranty.
Timberline® Lifetime Shingles
Timberline® shingles are the top-selling shingles throughout North America. They provide not only industry-leading protection for your home or business, but also a great looking wood-shake look. These shingles are available in many colors and styles, including energy efficient and impact resistant varieties. All Timberline® shingles now come with a lifetime warranty.
Designer Lifetime Shingles
The designer series from GAF is one of the most stylish, beautiful and durable lines of roofing on the market today. This series comes in a wide variety of colors and styles to match any aesthetic that you are looking for. Be the envy of your neighborhood with a great looking roof that is also durable and comes with a lifetime limited warranty.
Shingle Color Selections
Other Roofing Products
In addition to the shingles on your new roof, there are many behind the scenes products that are used to keep your roof durable, great-looking and as effective as possible.
Roof Deck Protection
In addition to providing superior protection against strong winds and rain, the different roof deck protection options offered by GAF will also help your shingles lay flatter and prevent buckling. As a result, your roof will last longer and look better for the duration of its lifespan.
Nobody likes a leaky roof. To provide your roof with a 100% watertight seal, GAF has developed leak barriers to be used along with their shingles and other roofing products. A quality leak barrier helps protect the interior of your home from costly, damaging leaks. A leak barrier will also help keep your shingles from wrinkling and buckling. You can rest easier, knowing that you are properly protected from a leaky roof.
Starter Strip Shingles
Starter strip shingles help your roofer quickly and efficiently lay the shingles on your roof. By using a starter strip, roofing companies can avoid blow-offs and other time-consuming problems, allowing them to complete your roof faster.
Attic ventilation is necessary for maintaining a consistent flow of air through your eaves and out through your roof. By maintaining proper air intake and exhaust, you can greatly improve the heating and cooling efficiency of your entire home. If you do not have proper ventilation, damage such as warping and high humidity can damage the integrity of your home’s structure. To combat this, GAF contractors use a variety of intake and exhaust vents to ensure that your attic is properly ventilated.
Ridge Cap Shingles
The hips and ridges of your home are under a higher level of stress than the rest of your roof. Rather than using modified strip shingles, GAF prefers to use high-quality ridge cap shingles that are designed to properly protect these high-stress areas from leaks and damage while accentuating the ridges of your home.
