Founded in 1886, GAF has become the largest roofing manufacturer in North America. The company’s products include a comprehensive portfolio of steep-slope and commercial roofing systems, which are supported by an extensive national network of factory-certified contractors. Its success is driven by its commitment to Advanced Quality, Industry Expertise, and Solutions Made Simple for contractors, specifiers, and property owners alike. In 2011, GAF was the first roofing manufacturer to offer a Lifetime limited warranty on all of its laminated shingles and, in 2012, it introduced the GAF Lifetime Roofing System.

Perfect for new construction or remodeling, TruSlate® increases the value of the home and includes a lifetime limited warranty.
- The company’s award-winning Certified Contractor Program has been judged by many to be the most extensive business-building program in the industry, and even includes warranties that cover the contractor’s workmanship and a factory inspection of each completed roof. The Habitat for Humanity “Community Partner” and “Certified Green Contractor” programs help installers to differentiate themselves to homeowners.
