Learn More About GAF’s Unbeatable Shingles

GAF is the leading manufacturer of roofing materials in America. But they are not just the most popular, they are also the BEST.

The highest quality.

In fact, we strongly advise never using anything other than GAF shingles for your home or commercial property.

3 Reasons GAF Roofing Shingles Are The “Gold Standard”

Now, let’s face it: Every roofer in Bucks, Lehigh, and Montgomery County will tell you the shingles they install are “the best.” So we understand if you’re skeptical when we say the same thing about the shingles we install.

That’s why we want to give you hard, indisputable proof that GAF is the top dog in the shingle-manufacturing world. Here are three reasons GAF is America’s most trusted—and popular—shingle brand.

Warranty Coverage That Protects You No Matter The Wind Speed

Most manufacturers only cover damage to shingles if the wind speed is less than 55 mph. By using GAF starter strips, roof deck protection, ridge cap shingles, and leak barrier or attic ventilation, you gain an unlimited wind warranty. This means no matter the wind speed, your roof is protected if wind damage occurs.

The Industry’s Largest Nailing Area

GAF’s Timberline® Shingles with LayerLock™ provides a nailing target that is 1.81” wide. This may not mean much to you, but as roofing contractors, it makes a world of difference. This means nails are NEVER misplaced, reducing the risk of callbacks and further ensuring the longevity of your roof.

Beautiful Results That You Will Have To See To Believe

GAF shingles look better than standard shingles. We can explain why (just give us a call!) — OR we could just show you. Check out our gallery to see the stunning results our clients have achieved.
