GAF shingles carry the Underwriters Laboratory Class "A" fire rating (the highest), while wood shingles are being banned in many areas because of fire danger. Untreated wood shingles can warp, curl and burn (and are often unwarranted), while GAF shingles are made with a fiberglass base to resist these problems. And GAF premium shingles are less expensive than wood or shake. Ordinary three-tab shingles are flat and thin -- and look that way on a roof. Conversely, GAF shingles lend a high-profile look to your home which adds to its value. And their extraordinary thickness allows them to be applied over old roofing, avoiding costly tear-offs in many cases.
GAF's quality products are regularly recognized by leading industry experts, including: • GAF shingles were selected for three straight years for Life Magazine's "Dream House" • Awarded #1 visual brand by Life Magazine • Featured regularly in leading home and garden publications and on home improvement networks such as HGTV • Named #1 in shingle and ridge vent quality by Home Builders (2005 study) • Named #1 in innovation for shingles and ridge ventilation by Home Builders (2004 study) • Named #1 shingle brand used in the last two years by Home Builders (2003 study) • Named most-used roof ridge ventilation systems by Builders and Remodelers (2001 study)
