GAF is one of the most popular brands of home roofing shingles for a reason! They offer exceptional high-quality manufacturing for a long lifespan and a wide variety of colors and styles which can fit in with any home’s look.

In addition, GAF roofing shingles offers some of the strongest warranty protections in the business. When you have GAF products installed, you qualify for enhanced GAF warranties, which can protect your roofing investment for up to 10-15 years, depending on the exact products used. Should you partner with a GAF-certified roofer, you may qualify for even longer warranties, making GAF one of the most secure investments you can make into your roof.

Roofers love GAF as well because their Total Protection System offers everything a roofer needs to create an amazing roof. Every component, from the shingles to the ridge caps and ventilation vents, have all been engineered to work together for the best possible roof.

Types Of GAF Roofing Shingles

GAF Designer Shingles are the premium line, for homeowners looking to install the absolute best in roofing materials. Both the build quality and aesthetics are exceptional, and a perfect fit for even the nicest of homes.

Frequently Asked Questions About GAF Roofing Shingles

1 – Do GAF roofing shingles contain fiberglass?

Yes. GAF shingles utilize fiberglass to reinforce the asphalt used in their construction, which gives them greater strength and stability. The fiberglass adds to GAF’s famous durability.

2 – Do GAF shingles fade over time?

Any roofing shingle will fade eventually. However, GAF shingles are designed to offer maximum protection. Their StainGuard Plus protective coating greatly reduces damage done by wind, weather, and UV light, as well as also adding anti-algae protection to prevent any unwanted infestations that could discolor your roof.

3 – How much does a GAF roof cost?

The costs will vary greatly simply depending on the size of your roof, as well as the type of GAF shingles you choose.  At the low end, 3-Tab shingles cost around $60-$70 per 100 square feet.  At the high end, Designer shingles are around $150-$160 per 100 square feet.  Timberline shingles fill out the middle, in the $110-$120 range.

However, you should consult with our qualified GAF installation team for a precise estimate based on your roof size and style preferences.
