GAF Roofing Products: An Overview

GAF Roofing Products: An Overview

When it comes to asphalt shingle roofing, few manufacturers can offer the wealth of roofing options that GAF provides. As a GAF Master Elite® contractor, Edmunds General Contracting shares an overview of GAF’s roofing products in today’s post.

GAF Roofing Products: An Overview

Three-Tab Shingles

The most common kind of asphalt shingle, three-tab shingles have a uniform size and shape, and a symmetrical arrangement. Three-tab shingles are the most affordable asphalt shingle option. GAF’s Marquis® WeatherMax® and Royal Sovereign® shingles feature the long-term performance, durability and quality expected of GAF roofing shingle products.

Architectural Shingles

Architectural shingles are also known as dimensional or laminate shingles, meant to mimic a hand-cut textured look. Architectural shingles consist of multiple layers, which adds a shadow profile that looks beautiful from the curb. GAF’s Timberline® Lifetime Roofing shingles are examples of architectural shingles and are available in several options, such as the high-contrast Ultra HD® line, the impact-resistant ArmorShield™line and the extremely energy-efficient Cool Series® line.

Designer Shingles

GAF takes the architectural shingles to a whole new level with their Lifetime Designer shingles. This premium line is designed to emulate the look of slate or aged wood shakes. Specialty roofing like the Sienna®, which imitates fish-scale shingles, and Woodland®, which mimics hand-cut European shingles, are also available.


In addition to asphalt shingles, GAF also offers the TruSlate premium roofing system. Unlike budget slate that mimics the look of slate roofing, TruSlate is actually made from hand-split quarried slate. GAF is able to offer a significantly lower price point than traditional slate roofing by reducing the overlaps down to a few inches; the hidden areas are instead covered by a high-tech waterproofing material. With TruSlate, you can have a real slate roof at a fraction of the cost. It’s also lighter than traditional slate roofing and comes with the long-term performance and superior warranty coverage offered with every GAF product.
