America’s #1 Roofing Manufacturer Now Offers Limited Lifetime Warranty on all its Laminated Roofing Shingles If you haven’t heard already because you just started thinking about replacing your roof this Spring or Summer, we have good news for you in the industry. Effective the beginning of 2011, North America’s largest roofing and ventilation manufacturer, GAF, will offer a limited lifetime warranty on all their laminated shingles, including Timberline shingles, one of the more well-known shingles of America’s residential roofs.

When it comes to roofing or roof replacement, we recommend GAF Elk products to our clients because they are the industry leaders in roofing products. This announcement brings more credibility to its product quality as it is a unique offer in the roofing industry. How this was made possible? According to GAF Press Release,

This revolutionary change has been made possible by GAF’s Advanced Protection™ technology, which was first introduced in 2007. This innovative shingle technology has resulted in shingles that offer improved performance, including superior durability and wind resistance. GAF is so confident in the performance of its Advanced Protection™ shingles that it has decided to make this unprecedented improvement in its warranties.

Including warranties, consider the following items as part of your decision-making process if you are in the market for a new roof:

  • Cost vs Value: if you’re just looking for the bare minimum protection with a 15 year life-span, then 3-tab shingles are as basic as it gets and as inexpensive as it gets for materials. However, with this product, there is no warranty for GAF, quality is cheaper, and the life-span is shorter. But if functional, basic protection is all you want, 3-tab is your best option.
  • Long-term vs Short-term Protection:
    If you’re planning on living in your home for more than 10 to 20 years, 30 Year Architectural Shingles backed by a lifetime warranty shingles are the best value for your investment.  Typically, Architectural shingles cost 20% to 40% percent more than 3-tab shingles.
  • Aesthetics: If you want to add a nice look, you can upgrade on styles and quality options. The Architectural shingles have a more appealing textured look and feel over the flat appearance of the 3-tab shingles.
  • Maintenance costs: the greater the quality of the roof, the greater the lifespan of a roof. With 3-tab shingles you will get less life-span and greater maintenance costs, especially since there is no warranty.  With Architectural or Designer Shingles, it is a lifetime warranty.
