If you’ve ever heard of GAF Timberline shingles, it might have been when a local roofing company was raving about some of their favorite products. Known for their high quality, total protection system, great style, and warranty, it’s no wonder that roofers and homeowners love to use GAF Timberline shingles on their roofs. Let’s take a look at 4 reasons why roofers love these products.
#1 GAF Timberline Shingles Are Top Quality
GAF products are known for being top-of-the-line, and the GAF Timberline shingles are no different. As the most respected shingle brand in the country, GAF makes sure its products are the best quality for every project and that all installers are certified in how to use their products correctly. GAF provides ongoing contractor training and certification programs for contractors so homeowners know they will get a product and service they can rely upon for a long time.
GAF Timberline shingles are made of great quality materials that provide excellent protection for your home against the elements. They have better than average durability with added impact and wind resistance to rival other top competitors. GAF Timberline shingles also have a Class A fire rating, making them a great safety feature for your home.
#2 GAF Timberline Shingles Are Part of a Complete System
Roofers love working with GAF products because they fit together seamlessly in a complete system. All of the GAF components work together to provide the best protection for you and your home year after year. Beyond GAF Timberline Shingles, the GAF total protection system includes WeatherWatch leak barriers, ridge caps and DeckArmor roof deck protection, starter strip shingles, attic ventilation vents, and more. When you install three or more items from their protection system, you can qualify for extra protection from enhanced warranties, extending the protection of your roof even longer.
#3 GAF Timberline Shingles Improve Your Home’s Style
Roof is a huge factor of your home’s overall curb appeal. It’s important to have a roof that is in great condition and protective of your home, but also one that adds to your home’s appearance. GAF Timberline shingles are designed to mimic the structural and visual appearance of wood shakes.
The fine details in each of GAF Timberline Shingles make them a great architectural detail for your home’s exterior. GAF has plenty of options for every price range and personal style. Choose neutral patterns and colors that can blend well with your home’s design and others in the neighborhood. Or, choose a shingle design and color to create some pleasant contrast with your siding or trim. Warmer, brighter colors tend to work well for homes in open, sunny areas, where cooler blues or greens work well for homes in shade to help them blend into the natural surroundings.
#4 GAF Timberline Shingles Carry a Great Warranty
GAF Timberline shingles come with one of the best warranties in the industry. If you install GAF Timberline shingles with at least 3 other qualifying accessories such as roof deck protection, ridge cap shingles, ventilation or leak barriers, you can earn the coveted Lifetime Warranty. This means your roof is protected for 10 years on all shingle products and 15 years for wind damage.
Additionally, if your GAF Timberline shingles are installed by GAF Master Elite certified roofing installer, you can unlock the Golden Pledge Warranty, which extends your lifetime protection up to 50 years and includes coverage for the installation process as well as any manufacturer defects that impact your roof’s integrity and quality.
The GAF Master Elite certification essentially guarantees sound work by itself: Contractors who have earned the title can install all GAF products correctly, commit to ongoing professional training with GAF, are licensed and insured, and have a good reputation for workmanship and quality. The enhanced warranty systems that accompany the title should never need to be used, since these contractors are dedicated to delivering the best quality service.
