As you may already know there are a ton of options when it comes to what roof you can have installed on your home or business. GAF roofing is one of the bestselling asphalt shingles on the list. Why is this you ask? Let us look at the pros and cons of GAF roofing.
- GAF Lifetime Roofing System
This system gives us six components to work with. They also are designed to work together to provide its customers with the best performance. This includes.
- GAF Timberline shingles with a limited lifetime warranty
- Cobra attic ventilation/ridge vent
- Deck Armor roof deck paper
- Starter strip shingles at the eaves and optionally at the rakes
- Weather Watch leak barrier used to line valleys.
- Ridge cap shingles that cover attic vents and non-vented ridges
- GAF Roofing Certification
For a roofing company to be able to install GAF roofing systems roofers must be trained on the products. The GAF master elite certification promises that roofers are licenses and insured, quality workmanship and several other items that benefits the homeowner.
- Great Warranty
Warranties are something we always hear about, but often have trouble trying to claim when something happens. However, with GAF their warranty is considered one of the best in the industry.
Depending on which GAF shingle is used on your home, it can offer three to five layers of protection for your home. Which is something that is truly amazing compared to other types of roofs.
Now that we went over a few of the pros, and trust us we mean just a few of the pros. Lets take a look at some of the cons. You might see that we are truly digging to find some cons. However, these are some things that stick out to us:
- Warranty requirements
Now above we did say the warranty is a pro and it is. However, when it comes to the lifetime warranty there is a catch. Regarding the Timberline and any other dimensional shingles to be in effect, two of the other GAF roofing components must be used on the job. They are the Cobra attic vent, Deck-Armor breathable synthetic underlayment etc.)
- Warranty Cost calculation
Trying to figure out the exact cost can be a daunting task even for roofers. Considering shingle type, roof pitch, number of peaks, valleys and a few other factors truly proves to be a difficult task.
This just means that lays of the dimensional shingles are not fused together correctly. Which will result in them coming apart in just a few months. The good thing? This will be covered under the warranty!
