Founded in 1886, GAF has become the largest roofing manufacturer in North America. The companys products include a comprehensive portfolio of steep-slope and commercial roofing systems, which are supported by an extensive national network of factory-certified contractors. Its success is driven by its commitment to Advanced Quality, Industry Expertise, and Solutions Made Simple for contractors, specifiers, and property owners alike. In 2011, GAF was the first roofing manufacturer to offer a Lifetime limited warranty on all of its laminated shingles and, in 2012, it introduced the GAF Lifetime Roofing System.
GAF Commercial Solutions
Unlike some roofing manufacturers who seem to have a one-technology-fits-all mentality, GAFs goal is to help contractors build their businesses by matching the right roofing technology to their clients specific needs. The company offers all major low-slope roofing technologies, including repair and maintenance products and roof restoration systems (often at half the cost of a new roof), as well as new roofing systems (BUR, MB, TPO, PVC, and composite systems). A new high-performance TPO product, EverGuard Extreme®, is available for use in solar or other extreme applications. Each year since 2010, GAF has opened a new state-of-the-art !SO or TPO manufacturing plant to better serve its end users.
- GAF offers a wide array of energy-smart options, some of which are ENERGY STAR® qualified and/or Title 24 Compliant, to take advantage of the growing interest in energy-saving, white reflective roofing.
- Special offerings include the Well Roof Guarantee Extension through Certified Maintenance Professionals (extends a low-slope roof guarantee by up to 25% for free, as long as regular maintenance is performed; see the Well Roof Guarantee Extension for complete requirements) and the All-American Pledge Guarantee (the first NDL guarantee that covers both low- and steep-slope roofs on a single property).
