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.

TruSlate®

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.
