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.
GAF Steep-Slope Solutions
GAF revolutionized the way that shingles are sold by introducing Lifetime ltd. warranties on all its laminated shingles—an industry first.
GAF is also the first manufacturer to have all of its shingles pass ASTM D3161 Class F 110 mph and ASTM 7158 Class H 150 mph – the industry’s two toughest wind resistance tests.
Leading brands include Timberline® Shingles, the No. 1-selling architectural shingles in North America.
With the rapidly increasing demand for upscale shingle options, GAF offers extensive Lifetime Designer Shingle options, including Ultra-Premium Camelot®, Grand Canyon, Country Mansion®, and Grand Slate Shingles, as well as an entire line of value-priced Lifetime Designer Shingles that offer homeowners a truly affordable upgrade from standard architectural shingles.
GAF also offers the TruSlate Roofing System: real hand-split quarried slate installed with a high-tech, patented system, resulting in an affordable option for virtually any home. 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. Dozens of other programs and exclusive marketing materials are available to help contractors to build their businesses.
With a focus on social responsibility, GAF has developed Advanced Protection® Shingle Technology, which provides superior durability and wind resistance while reducing the use of scarce natural resources. The company has also developed single-ply and asphaltic membranes with superior durability and high reflectivity to meet the most rigorous industry standards while helping commercial property owners and designers reduce energy consumption. In addition to GAF’s rigorous internal sustainability efforts, GAF launched an industry-leading Certified Green Roofer Program and committed to a multi-year sponsorship of ShingleRecycling.org, which helps contractors and distributors connect with qualified shingle recyclers across the U.S. and Canada.
